I had a chance to test White Wilma at 100m, 200m and 300m. There was an approx 10 mph cross wind blowing. The wind was gusting, which made it tricky.
This time all shots are 5 shot groupings to keep some "very hard to impress" people happy.
 
100 m
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
And if I exclude the one flyer at 300 meters which I definately called, the whole range heard me curse Wink

Roy, sorry if it came across that way, it was meant a bit tongue in cheek. I was just as keen to see if the rifle can hold a 5 shot group.

Thanks Dale, coming from you that means a lot.
 
I have struggled hard to get this result. Posting the targets may seem a bit like bragging or something, but I am really just excited about getting the end result.
 
White Wilma.... that comes from BeltFed.

Wouter you've earned the right to brag. Those are great groups, and I like the name.
As a former Navy SEAL once told me "It aint bragging if you've done it" as he pointed to his picture in the water with the Mercury capsule and its' astronaut.
You have pictures!

Ok 8shots, I noticed that you have the same problem that I'm haveing with my Savage. One flyer in the group! Yours is not as bad as mine, but.......
I was going over my targets the other night and I noticed that no matter how large or small the group was, I always had one flyer. Usually the first shot in the group, and usually low. Just wondering, have you bedded your action?

Wouter has enough problems with the powers that be without answering that last question.

I'd be really pleased with that 200 meter group.  The symetry says a lot.
 
Mostly it says GOOD SHOOTER who took the time to work on a load that's properly balanced for the barrel he's shooting.
 
Well done.    Well Done indeed Sir!

Beltfed, there is nothing more I can do to that rifle!
Action is trued and bedded. Timney trigger set at 12 ounces. You name it, I've done it.

Thanks for all your kind words on this. Now I have to get serious in our shooting competitions and bring home the bacon. I cannot blame my tools any more.
