I went to the range last week and was shooting Federal 30-06 Spring Barnes® Triple-Shock® X Bullet® 165 grain. I ended up shooting a group at 100 yards somewhere between a 50 cent and a quarter. I had shot about 50 rounds and had only used a bore snake. I was just recently told that was not going to cut it as far as cleaning it. I cleaned it this week with some sweets and shooters choice. I will never make that mistake again. I plan on going an shooting it again with a week or 2 just to make sure I still have a good group with it.
Well I knew I had posted asking for help before I got my rifle and wouldn't you know it I couldn't find it cause it was under a different name lol. Well after so much time waiting for the chance to draw blood with it I ended up drawing blood 3 times within a week. Here is some pictures of a couple of the pigs I harvested.
Rather than spend my hard earned pennies on those cool Shoot-N-See targets or even the preprinted targets at sporting goods stores, I save a few bucks for weekend plinking sessions by using paper plates as targets. A 100 count pack of paper plates costs less than a 10 count pack of preprinted targets.
If you are playing with something like a semi auto AK, or building a young shooters confidence with a 22 or shotgun, those big eight inch blanks are perfect for putting holes in all...
