First range visit for brand new 457
« on: June 20, 2022, 04:29:17 PM »
First rounds ever fired. I imagine it will take a lot more rounds down the tube before making any ammo decisions, but today was mostly for fun and to gauge the potential. After a few fouling rounds, I zeroed first with the SK Match Flat Nose on a sighting bull not shown in the image. All bulls were then shot with the original SK Match zeroed scope settings. As I was just out for fun and ammo auditions, the gun is wearing just a basic Caldwell bipod, and the rear rest is the Protektor minimalist version (simple bunny ear bag).

Pretty good shooting for the first day.  Looks like you have answered some of the which ammo works questions.

 Good shooting. The journey has just started. It's really nice to try a wide variety of ammo. After some break-in, I  think the groups will get tighter.
