After having the 200-300 yard range to myself and firing up my handloads, I went over to the crowded 100-yard range with 8 rounds of 150gr .308s FMJs that have been loitering in my ammo box for a few years. I shot up the rest some time ago so had no idea how it would shoot, given my current zero with a different load.

I set up one of my dot drill targets. The first round was an inch low so I adjusted up .3 mils and did the rest of my shots aimed at that same point, but adjusted 1, 2, 3, or 4 mils up from the temporary zero. I tried to vary the adjustments as you can see from the shot sequence. Any shots outside the dots are just my poor shooting, but overall, it's a decent test of the turrets. If you consider shots 7 and 8, it makes for a crappy group, but I figure it's just as well to show your less-than-proud results too.

Thanks for the kind words. I remember now that was some highway patrol surplus I got in 2006. It's nice to see that you can take any decent stuff out and correct pretty quickly.

Now for all you MOA reticle and/or turret users, here's a version of the dot drill for you:

(note the outer diameter of each circle is exactly 1.047 inches and the spacing is exactly 3.141 inches. This is not an IPHY target)
