So, since I got my errands done for the day, I decided to pop back out to the range for a bit and sight my Savage 110 in on the 400-yard line. Admittedly, after watching Old NFO shoot his SCAR out there and hearing every shot ring the 400-yard gong, I got to be feeling the need to do the same with my designated distance rifle.
The rifle is a Savage 110 Law Enforcement model, with a heavy barrel. The rifle is chambered in 7.62x51, and yes, it's left-handed. The optic is an SWFA Super Sniper 10x42mm scope with target turrets.
It's not an ACOG or anything, but it serves to give a shooter a good look at the target nonetheless. I like it.
The rifle was already zeroed for 100 yards, so it didn't take much fiddling to get it to where it was ringing the steel at 400 consistently (providing that I did my part, of course).
Once that was accomplished, I went back over to the pistol steel and gave my healing wrist a little "recoil therapy" as I engaged the same targets that Aaron and I got skunked out on a couple of days prior. Naturally, now with no shot timer and no audience, I hit them just fine.
A few magazines of .40 ammo were enough to get my wrist sore again, but a month ago I couldn't even fire one round of 9mm without wincing. It's getting better. Now if I can just get a prescription for a couple of cases of ammo and convince my insurance company that it's theraputically necessary, I'll be all set.
