I spent a hour and some change upgrading my brothers rings and mount on his 700 a month back and he had backed out on our range trip so being the nice brother I am I stole it for some range fun.

Now keep in mind this is my first time ever shooting any kind of a bolt action rifle except for my mosin with iron sites and a mauser.

100 yrds ( ranges in IL suck , not many over 100 )

Top left was first 3 to site in , top right , then bottom left , then bottom right ( my best grouping with 3 in the same hole , then the center was my last 3 )

For non-handloaded ammo, you've done some pretty fine rifle work - especially considering your lack of experience. I've been pulling the trigger on long guns for 20 years and would be thrilled to have a target that looked like that.

Oh, and used to live in Illinois. You're right on about the crumminess of the sport of riflery in that state.

Looks good! I share your frustration about ranges! Northern VA seems to only have 25 yard indoor ranges!
