Quote of the day—TriggerFinger

You have to be really, really good to get to the targets at the top of the hill if you start at the bottom. You see, the really good folks tend to start at the top…

  1. Honestly, I do not think I even bothered to look at the targets at the top of the hill until it came time to clean them up…

  2. Ah ha. That might explain why I missed the 385 yard target I was going for, even though I fired the entire cylinder full of six shots from that 1917 revolver– I should have started at the top of the hill. DANG! I had even calculated the elevation at half a tall pine tree and the right wind at about 2.147 degrees, but apparently I failed to take into consideration that fact that I should have been shooting at the 700 yard targets. All this time I’d thought that maybe the sight calibration was off little a bit.

    Well there’s always next year.

  3. In recent years, my buddy and I always start out at the top, after getting good 700 yard zeros in the previous day’s field fire. After pounding those until they are gone, we start moving down the hill, looking for the camo’ed ones that Joe hides from time to time.

    In the afternoon, after target replenishment, we bring out our .204 Rugers and work over the targets at the tree line. The little .204 pills can be effected by wind, but at 4000 fps., not by that much.
