Default Range Report - Anschutz .22 Hornet - Preliminary

So... Had to 'fire for effect'. (Infantrymen will recognize that phrase.) I got some Hornady factory ammo at Cabelas ($19.99/25):

Since j0e_bl0ggs is sending me some skookum bases, I decided to just go with a cheap .22 rf scope I had mounted on a Romanian Model 69 Trainer for this 'test firing'. Pretty funky 'scope even by my standards. I think I'll put the Zeiss Conquest on this rifle. Anyway, bore-sighted in basement at 30 feet and shot this at 30m:

Point of Aim is the word "Sighter" in center of center bullseye.

I got 0.0002" of 'growth' on the average value of each case after firing. (I had to average, because I forgot to measure them immediately after firing, so I don't know which "after" value goes with which "before" value.

I was a little surprised by the report and the recoil. I was expecting something more along the lines of a rimfire. Obviously unrealistic on my part to expect so little recoil and report from a 35-grain bullet doing what the bullet manufacturer says is 3100 f/s. I forgot to strap on MagnetoSpeed. But I will the next time I shoot it.

No problems feeding from magazine, but I didn't expect any.

I'm pretty happy with this.

More when I get better 'scope on it.


PS - According to my "group calculator" this group is 1.74 MoA. 'Eyeballin' it I would have said about 1.5 MoA.
