Today’s shoot was colder then a witches t_t, at least to me it was. I got set up at 100 yards with 2 targets, sense I needed to sight this new scope in. After getting it semi sighted in I shot semi fair, but every time I started to squeeze the trigger a cold blast of air would blow right up my back. So I was somewhat off with my shots.

Though the picture is a little blurry, you can still see my bad marksmanship. I will try and get a better pic when my son gets home and let him take the pic.

Top Left, was a fair 3 shot group.
Bottom left, was the best out of them all, 3 shots in one hole, not bad for a cold day.
Top right, not a great group
Bottom left, two shots in the same hole and one stray
Center, was a rapid fire 4 shot group, very disappointing

Only thing I can say good about today’s shoot is that I love this new scope.
