I went up to my dad's camp / property with him today to help him work on it and to get a little shooting in. I got to try out the new Remington 700 and I got to shoot my old mossberg 20ga from when I was a kid. It all made for a pretty good day. The sight on the 30-06 walked right in beautifully. I still have to make a few minor adjustments, but over-all it should be pretty good. I also have a bit of practicing to do, but over-all, for not shooting a gun in over 6 years or so, the grouping wasn't too bad... mostly just a couple strays here and there where I would either screw up my breathing or pull too hard.
This was at 50 yards. I still have to move it about 3/4" to the left, but I'm going to leave the up/down for now until I can get it out to 100yards. I have a feeling I should be almost perfect by 100 yards.


No pics of the shotgun shots, that was mostly just fun. Used an empty bottle as a "clay" target. Missed the first throw, barely grazed it the second throw, then hid it square on the third (all being thrown by my dad). Then I decided to give the old throw it yourself, raise gun, shoot and somehow actually still managed to hit it... not 100% dead on, but enough to change the course of the bottle and leave a few plastic shavings to float back to the ground... lol.

Over-all it was a great day. Possibly heading back out there tomorrow for some more fun.

The only issue I am having, and I never even thought about it til after I got a couple rounds down, is that the "sweet spot" in my shoulder just happens be directly where I have a previous injury and its causing enough discomfort that I notice myself inadvertently flinching once in a while. Usually I catch myself and reset my breath, but other times I end up pulling and causing a stray. I may have to try a different recoil setup or do something with my shoulder to add a little extra padding... which I hate to have to do, but if it creates a better shot than so be it.
