Very well put Otis.

I put no more faith in some of what I read on the forums than what I hear from the "gun experts" at the local gun shop.

Luny, a 1&quot; group at 100yds ain't nothing to sneeze at...as they say down here, &quot;ya done good&quot;. And, selecting a Tikka was a smart move.

Remember to practice shooting your rife from positions and conditions similar to how you will engage the game (e.g. deer). Anyone can punch paper from a sitting position at a range benchrest, but with just a little buck fever in a 30ft tree stand or kneeling position - a 50yd target(deer) can be as challenging as a 300yd benchrest shot.

luny thats really good shooting. do you handload? you will find that perfect load for your gun if your really intrested. to get to that point where your gun will consistantly out shoot you. you may go thru 5 or 6 bullets and 7-8 powders not to mention primers, sizing ,depth, and grains of powder but (patience pays) it took almost three years,and countless trips to the range,and good record keeping to make it perfect. i can usually get 1/4in 4 shot groups at 100yrds out of my 308. if i do my part....if i do my part.... if i do my part...good things happen to those who wait...............songdog

for some odd reason i can;t group on paper worth a damm, but i can hit almost anything i shoot at the first time, so i;m content.
perfect example, my rem 740woodsmaster ought six with a lyman 4x post reticle scope, at 150yds, i can hit a standin clay pidgeon til the cows come home but if you stick up a target i;m lookin at 4-5 inch groups, don;t matter much to me, i got confidence in the gun, and its the first shot thats the money shot anyways, just got a sweet sporterized springfield, haven;t shot it but hopefully i can do the same or better,

hmm maybe i;ll try smaller stuff next time like lolipops stuck in the ground

&quot;smile, life could be worse.. i could be datin your daughter.&quot;

You guys are great. Lots of good stuff. Thanks. The 1&quot; group was my best. With my rifle resting on a sandbag. How can you practice &quot;feild&quot; shooting? Take a walk in the woods,and try and hit somthing off the cuff? I have a cabin at Bucks Lake here in N.CA.I thought about taking off and setting up some paper plates in a few places,and walking around taking random shots.I had a muzzle break put on my 06,becouse my shoulder was getting sore. It helped quite a bit with recoil. Loud as heck,though. I'm starting to look forward to get on this site when I get home. My wife jokes about her being a computer&quot;widow&quot; And with my obsesing about going hunting---As far as my first dove hunt-I had fun, but I'm getting tired of all the &quot;broad side of the barn&quot; jokes. (lol)
