Friday the 13th- did I have bad luck?
« on: November 13, 2020, 08:56:19 AM »
I decided to test the hypothesis on the bad luck on Friday the 13th with regard to target shooting.
The weather outside is great- 7 degrees Celsius (44F), some showers here and there. Just excellent weather for a range trip.


I was shooting Scenars at 100 meters. I observed a little horizontal shift of the POI. 5 shot groups. I think I will be shooting this ammo during my next match.

 Great shooting! Lapua has always been good to me.

excellent!  I won’t get back to the range until Tuesday...when I am sure my luck will be good!

Thank you guys. I was shooting next to some hunters who were sighting-in some thermal scopes. I think it has very little to do with old school hunting. you can spot a boar from 200 meters at night. It's effective but not so much challenging.

If I could have gotten my M1A to do that for me 40 years ago I'd have been so happy.
I stopped carrying the SIG 556R.  SIG changed models and couple/three times and stopped supporting it with parts.  So, I stopped supporting SIG.  Back to the tried/true AR15 Carbine.

M1A4ME, you can easily shoot a 0.5moa group at 100m (with a modern varmint rifle in a 6.5CM). Thing becomes more tricky after you pass a 300m limit- you have to read the wind etc.
