A bit off topic from bowling.....aside from bowling 3 leagues a week and traveling most weekends to watch my son bowl in tourneys, and trying to play golf too!!!....... I am also trying to get my shooting game on...so I can kill some Coyotes, Pigs, and deer.... it's a process!!!  All I need is MORE time!!



Chambered in .308.....there is some recoil no doubt,  but it shoots smooth like butter...LOL

Didn't show the target afterwards! What kind of shot grouping did you have?

The target was 100yds....  I had a lot more planned for this video because I was doing an ammunition test.   I recorded a lot more.. my editing software didn't recognize my camera so I couldn't put the clip together....and hence...I just uploaded a boring shooting clip. 

I bought 6 different types of ammunition and decided to do an ammunition test.  As you can see in the clip, I wasn't using a "led-sled" or any special rest to hold still.  Funny thing is I have pics of all the targets and I fired a lot of rounds that day. I don't even know how to share pics because my old photobucket account wants me to pay, and I refuse...LOL

I saved the final 20 round mag dump for last...I saved it for cheap Korean crap ammo.... My max spread including fliers... 4 3/4" for the 20 round dump.  I have a pic.... since photobucket is on the outs..I didn't share it. 

Interestingly enough, I also fired several 5 round groups of more expensive ammo and didn't fare much better.....mostly in the 3-3.5" grouping.   My early groupings were the worst and I kept shooting better as I went...so I didn't learn a lot from the test.  except...shoot more.  I haven't fired a rifle in 26 years.... I'd like to think I am rusty, but free holding the stock...I don't think that's too bad.  it is what it is...I plan to kill coyotes soon....I shoot straight enough... all I have to to is "nick" a coyote with a .308 caliber and it will wreck it..LOL

A farmer begged me to go to "HIS" farm......  I did...I didn't see any, but this is a quick 10 second clip.......LOL


this was my first coyote hunt..LOL...I had them howling... they were in the distance though...I never got a shot. 

He not only asked me to go to his farm, but he told me to go to his barn, and use his 4-wheeler.........true story. and I did....stay tuned!!!!!  this story isn't finished yet!  Of course, I'll be in Nashville this week for the Storm bowling tourney....... I plan to return to this farm in the coming weeks...and get permission to hunt on neighboring farms....  yes...I am hunting with a 7.62x51...... (308)
