Taking a break from the EBRs at the range. '95 SRC

Post by 2ndovc »

First time out with the '95 SRC, .30-06 and a couple .357s.

My other '95 carbine shoots very well with Sierra 125 gr. Game King bullets, took my first deer with that combination. The new one shoots about 8' low and groups around 6" at 50 yds. It does shoot just about dead on and capable of some very nice groups with Sierra 165 gr. GKs. Once I settled in I put three rounds into 1 3/4" , with the first two stretching it out to 3". Still pretty respectable for the ladder sights that are on it and less than great sight picture. But they're cool! :D
Took along my S&W 327 and Ruger Speed Six .357s for some fun. Hitting the 24" gong at 50 yds is a piece of cake with either one of these.
I wanted to burn up some old handloads my uncle gave me, label on the box is dated 1974! They all went off but some of them didn't make it all the way to the 50 yd steel. He gave me about 500 rounds of the stuff, I might just pull the bullets and throw them in the lead bucket.

Low 60s out this morning but another beautiful day at the range. :D

Sounds like a good day but then any day at the range is good day. Nice choice of shooting irons too... : 8)
