Stand for the Flag. Kneel at the Cross!
The difference between what I'm doing and those 4 and 5 thousand dollar rifles that you mentioned is homemade versus store bought and it puts a little more emphasis on 1 shot 1 kill.Would someone please let this shooter know that it won't do any good to bed or float the forearm on a break-open rifle! With a good bolt action rifle, floating the barrel will normally improve its grouping ability. Not so much with a Handi! Buy a box of Federal Gold Medal Match Ammo - either 168 BTHP or 175 BTHP and test the rifle's grouping ability. If you can cover 5 shots at 100 Yds. with a dime, you have a chance of making this rifle shoot at longer distances. Just so you know, there are long-range shooters out there that don't even bat an eyelash when they put out 4-5 thousand dollars for a long-range shooter! BTW, it took a couple of years to find a load that would duplicate the performance of the Federal Gold Medal Match Ammo!
