Thread: What did you shoot today?

  1. #1751
    Glock 19-5 direct milled for a Holosun 507c. Shot a single FAST as a demo in front of coworkers during quals. Managed a 6.40 clean. Not too shabby considering I barely shoot anymore outside of quals with life just getting in the way. We had fewer people than expected show up so we finished early and I was able to do some of my own shooting once quals and training were done for the day. I managed a 98 on the Old Bakersfield PD qual. I lost a point for one shot just outside of the 8 ring of a B8 at the 10 ft stage and another for going overtime at the 20 ft stage with a time of 2.01. Then a little pressure at distance. Defoor Hat Qual was a fail 80/100 in 14.59. I shanked one completely off the 8.5Ēx11Ē B8 printout so I lost 10 points going into it. I tried the Presscheck No Fail Shot and came the closest Iíve ever come to passing. Only 5/10 in the black but all my misses were close. Nothing left the 8 ring. Most of the reps were around 2.6s or so. I need to throttle it back a little bit and use another quarter to half second or so per shot to clean things up. Next I tried to push some concealed draw speed up close and thatís where things went wrong. I had several draws at 3y of 1.05s, 1.01s, etc. I decided to really hit the gas because Iíve never been able to pull off a sub-second draw. Well, I managed a 0.99s that did hit the 8.5Ēx11Ē paper. The bad news is I had a terrible strong hand grip and my thumb was in a bad spot. The slide took a chunk of skin off my thumb about the diameter of a pea. I bled like a stuck pig for a bit and decided to call it a day. Iíll ask one of the other instructors to shoot the demo tomorrow because my hand hurts.

    Ruger 44 carbine load, 100 and 80 yds

    I loaded up 50 rds of the 13.5 gr Blue Dot load and got out to the 100yd range. This first pic is the best group that I could, using the cheap plastic bipod on a heavy wooden table.

    While I appreciate the one X ring, the group is entirely unsatisfactory.
    After burning more ammo and getting worse results including many rounds not on the paper, I moved to the 80 yd range and started experimenting with different rests and shooting methods. I don't have any sandbags but I do have a 8"x"10"x12" wooden box that I put a pad on, then used my support hand to hold pressure down over the barrel/forend. This seemed to keep this light rifle steady enough until the bullet had left the barrel. The groups sure tightened up.

    Using this, I was able to pull off the 3 shot group below before shooting 2 more high fliers.

    I then switched to shooting a 10 plate at 80 yards with good results. I was able to hit 3 out of 5 offhand on the plate.

    Conclusions:

    This is an 80 yard rifle on it's best day. The Romeo5 makes it fun to shoot as opposed to the "devised in hell" Ruger fold down tiny little dent rear sight. (hack, spit)

    I got a working 240gr JSP load that I will use for loading my 27 Hornady JHP bullets left over from 20 years ago. I have a crap ton of load data for when I get a 44 lever action or pistol. I sure wish that I had never sold my Bicentennial Edition 44 Super Blackhack.

    This project is done, these proceedings are closed...for now.

    Glock 42 with WWB FMJ. Gun ran fine, no problems. It was stinker when new and had to go back. Lately, no problem. Carry gun match so 380 was legit. One fellow said that he gets frustrated getting the 380s out of the 9 mm empties for reloading. I don't reload.

    First stage, it was a touch squirmy and I had to tighten up my grip on the little guy. Othewise decent hits.

    Spent about two and a half hours at the range Sunday which was probably an hour and a half longer than I should have stayed. After an hour I was really just turning money into noise but I said screw it because I needed some recoil therapy and some ďme timeĒ. I did learn a few things though.

    Since Iíve been carrying the 442 more, I figured I might oughta actually shoot the silly thing. I learned that with the unknown gunshow reloads I bought 10+ years ago (SWC, probably 158gr, velocity of who knows), it shoots a foot high at 10 yards. Fortunately Iíve got 2 different brands of wadcutters on the way so Iím anxious to try it out with a proper, known loading. Also thereís a sharp edge inside the front of the trigger guard that needs to be addressed.

    Did a little work with the K6 Target and GP100. As much as I hate to admit it, I need a set of Goodyears for the Kimber. Something full size without finger grooves.

    Put over 100 rounds through the Black Kraken confirming the stiff bolt problem I had last time was operator headspace and timing induced. Turns out if you over tighten the takedown screw in the back it causes the bolt to drag and the associated issues that creates. Backing it off fixes the issue. Those were the last two targets but I did much better on the others. I promise.

    @awp_101- just FYI, my 642 needs 125-130-grain ammo to shoot to POA. My 70s production M49 needs the traditional bullet weights to do the same.

    Thanks, this is a no lock mid-00s production so it will be interesting to see how it likes 148gr wadcutters.
