You may have seen my recent thread on the jammed (empty) case in the chamber, holding the bolt carrier closed? Followed by my challenges getting the middle barrel band reseated? Well, those adventures culminated almost five years of never getting this rifle out to the range, and I finally (with the help of all your suggestions and remedies - THANKS GUYS!) got it all together to go shooting today. ...Wow! Is this an awesome gun, or what?!?
Shooting all WW2 German ammo, 100 yard target shown below. I was shooting two different headstamps of the German ammo, and one headstamp seemed to hit slightly above POA, and the other slightly below. (There were a couple more rounds above and below the Shoot-N-See, not visible here.) When I switched to 300 yards, I shot only ammo with all the same headstamps.
300 yard target shown below. The aiming black is only 12 inches across, so my 61YO peepers just could not acquire the best sight picture on that little dot. (Maybe that explains that flyer out there at 3 o'clock? ) Still, I think this group would have achieved 'Minute of Body' on the battlefield. And this ammo is 10 years older than I am! No misfires; only the expected chamber seizures. BTW: When I first moved to 300 yards, I put the rear sight at 300 meters, but after several rounds flew into the berm well above the target , I reset the rear sight to 200 meters, and you can see the result. (I think this ammo is pretty amazing!)
