Shot my wifeís deer rifle that my dad gave her the day before he passed. Yesterday was the first time I shot it past 30 yards when I checked for functionality. Itís a 6.5x55 Swedish built off a Mauser 96 action and original military barrel. Custom walnut stock, converted to cok-on-open, and installed a Dayton Traistor trigger.
I shot a target load I developed for my Ruger M77 Mk. II for the Jan. 2015 Hunting Rifle Challenge. I think the load is 47 grains H4350 and a Sierra 123 grain HPBT.
First 3 shots were in the same hole. I was shooting at a huge piece of cardboard but I was still skeptical until I walked down and saw the hole was wallered out slightly. Thatís the best group Iíve shot! The next 2 shots were about 1/4Ē off the first 3. I think I was too excited and messed up the group on those 2 last shots. Lol
