For some reason, I pulled one shot out of every 3 shot group I attempted Sometimes it was the first shot, sometimes it was second, sometimes it was third.

The wind was horrible, and its been years since I shot a real rifle

I was impressed with the performance even with cheap Magtech ammo, but my hand loads were way more consistent.  Heres the last two groups I shot, before heading out.





I didnt get to measure them, and my stomach has been killing me all day, so I just headed out.  Cant wait to get some more range time with it, and see how bad of a shot I am at 200, 300+  Eventually Id like to start shooting at 600, but I think today made me realize how much practice I really need.

I'm not sure, but the first picture looks to me like you fires when you inhaled on that one shot.  Could be wrong though.

The groups will tighten up after some practice. What hand loads are you going with?

I think those were 44grns 4064 with a 168grn SMK.  Id have to double check.  The wind was bad, so after I got it sighted in, I shot about 6 more shots and packed up

You are probably right to wait for less wind, but soon you will want to practice in the wind.  Those last groups looked pretty good.
