Default Small MR Report

Jon already showed enough pictures of the MR. I'll just show one. You can see I changed the hard recoil pad to the one off the Wolf. The scope is 1.5x5x32. Perfect for my timber hunting. I just leave it on 1.5x.

I went to the range, and knew the scope wouldn't be too far off. I took it off the Wolf, so I wasn't starting from scratch. I'm also careful with a cracked rib I got last week, so I just wanted to shoot the minimum shots to sight it in.

The first shot was low right. I adjusted the scope and it barely moved the POI. I did it once more, and it still barely moved. That's three holes which slowly moved towards the bull.

The last adjustment was a lot! I thought it would be way too much, but it turned out just right. I called it good and went home. Elk have a big kill zone, and i'm happy the way the MR was shooting. No sense wasting anymore Thors. The gun is a sweetheart to shoot.

Load was BH 209 90gr 250gr Thor CCI 209M primer 100yds Scope on 1.5X.

Boy those junky CVAs! Don't know why we bothered even buying them. I can't wait to get to shoot mine. Ordered a new Leupold 2-7x Ultimate Slam scope for it. I'll be taking it out around the 15th.

Nice looking rifle and scope there Muley. Sorry to hear about your rib. Man that is painful.

That is some excellent shooting. Next time to the range of course it will not shoot that well. But then that is all the more reason to go to the range.

Yeah, that's why I quit on my last shot. Now I can tell myself during the hunt the gun is perfect.
