    Long range tips

    I know it is late to be attempting to "fix" any issues with my long range shooting. However, I will say I am extremely confident (90-100% confident) in shots 30yds and under and probably 75% confident at 40yds. Outside of one deer I killed at 36yds, I don't think I have ever killed one over...

    Better day at the range

    Seems a loose scope mount can really create some issues, and tightening those mounts makes a world of difference. I sighted in at fifty yards first, then worked on one hundred yards. I have settled on 100 grain pellet, and a 250 grain powerbelt aerotip. I made scope adjustments between...

    Not a good day at the range

    It was a simple plan... Go to the shooting range at Delaware and get a muzzy dialed in. I have 2 muzzies. One is a Remington Genesis .50 that, as of the last time I was at the range, seemed to be hitting ok at 100 yards with a 250 grain powerbelt and 100 grain pyrodex. The other is a CVA .45...

    Day at the trap range

    The sponsor for Kody and Klay's little league team was Island Creek Sporting Clays in Toronto, Ohio. The owner's grandson always lands on the same team as my boys, so he's been the sponsor for the last 4 years or so. My boys, especially Kody, have spent quite a few days at the range and the...

    Range help from a TOO brother -

    Sunday I had the privilege of introducing a young man from work to the shooting sports. He's a sophomore in college, and had never used firearms before, so I had a clean slate to work with. After gun basics and safety instruction, I started him out with a single-shot open sights .22 rifle at...

    Couple of good days at the range

    I'm very frustrated right now because my honey-do's and family schedules and other obligations have been eating my weekends like mad ever since April, and my outdoor pursuits are lagging (but that's a story for another thread). But I have managed to get the range and do a little shooting...

    Range Finder App

    There is actually a range finder app. for Android. It uses the camera lens and it appears to be accurate from short distances. I will test it further and report back.

    range finder advice

    I have been challenging my shooting skills and trying to take g-hogs at a min of 250yds and out .I have had success but would like my percentage to be higher and most of the misses are because of my yardage estimate or lack of. Anyone out there got a recommendation for a long distance range...

    Bushnell range finder

    I bought a Bushnell Yardage Pro Sport 450 the other day and was just wondering if any of you other guys have used them and what you thought about it. I have played around with mine a few times so far and it seems to be a good one. I will be taking it to the range in a few days and put it to the...

    Flintlock range report.

    Went to the range on Friday and shot my new flintlock for the first time. A friend that shoots them a lot took me to show me the ropes. It's a .54 caliber that my wife got me for Christmas. I began by putting a little priming charge in the pan and "shooting" that off to get the hang of...
