    Had a great road-trip with Scout706 to the CMP Talladega Marksmanship Park on Friday.

    The rifle:

    With an HK 1200 meter rear sight:

    All of the shooting was done off of a table with a rest.

    The ammunition:
    [​IMG]
    Malaysian surplus
    [​IMG]
    German surplus
    [​IMG]
    Federal Premium Gold Medal Match and PPU Match

    At 200 yds the X-Ring is 3â€, the 10 Ring is 7â€, the 9 Ring is 13â€, and the 8 Ring is 19â€.
    1st with a score of 101.1 and two X-Rings was the Federal:

    2nd with a score of 97.8 and one X-Ring was the German:
    [​IMG]

    The Malaysian came in 3rd with a score of 96.8 and one X-Ring:
    [​IMG]
    And, the PPU Match was last with score of 96.2:
    [​IMG]

    The Ring diameters at 300 yds are the same as the diameters at 200 yds, with the 7 Ring being 25†and the 6 Ring is 31 “.
    1st was the Federal again with a score of 93.5 and two X-Rings:

    Close-up:

    The Malaysian moved to 2nd with a score of 92.9 and one X-Ring:
    [​IMG]

    The PPU was 3rd at 300 yds with a score of 91.5:

    And, the German came in last with a score of 90.4:

    Cont.

    Next was my very first time ever shooting at 600 yds. At that distance the X-Ring is 6”, the 10 Ring is 12”, the 9 Ring is 18”, the 8 Ring is 24”, the 7 Ring is 36”, the 6 Ring is 48”, and the 5 Ring is 60".

    I shot two strings of 10 rounds of each brand of ammunition, starting with the Malaysian ammo. It seemed to be shooting high, and ended up in 3rd place on the first string with a score of 72.7:
    [​IMG]

    Next was the German surplus, and even though my first shot didn’t register on the target at all (it seemed to be shooting high also), the ammo still came in 2nd in the first string with a score of 78:
    [​IMG]

    The PPU Match ammo was next and it came in 1st in the first string with a score of 86.6 with one X-Ring:
    [​IMG]
    It didn’t seem to have the problem with bullet rise like the Malaysian and German ammunitions did.

    I shot the Federal last in the first string at 600 yds and that’s where it ended up. I only got eight of ten shots in the scoring area (apparently) for a score of 67.2:
    [​IMG]

    I started with the Malaysian surplus again for the second string at 600 yds. Once again I apparently had one round outside of the scoring area, so that dropped the ammunition to 4th with a score of 74.1:
    [​IMG]

    Next was the German surplus and it registered its only 1st place of the day with a score of 83.4:
    [​IMG]

    The PPU Match ammo was third in the rotation again, but dropped to 2nd place with a score of 79.4:
    [​IMG]

    And the Federal Premium Gold Medal Match ammunition was a surprising 3rd place with a score of 79.3 and one X-Ring:

    Oh, and one final comment: I am

    rjinga, you have some amazing skills with iron sights, and that rifle performs much better than I thought it would have.

    You have some good eyes. My old eyes can't even see the target at 600 yds without magnification.

    Post a photo of the rear sight - I was expecting a drum with a 1200 setting, it is actually quite flexible - rjinga is ready for an Appleseed!

    Thanks. And, see if you can figure it out. Here's a clue: what does the shape on the shirt represent? :wink:

    There's one in the initial post (smaller, but it's there).

    Thanks buddy. You were certainly hammering it out to 600 yds with your M1 Garand too.

    I feel for you. I had both the lens in my eyes replaced awhile back and I can see a target at 600 yards now. Only now I can not see the front post on a long gun. Give and take I guess.

    I know what the shape represents. Just like the ones showing an M16 front/rear sight. I should have asked if you bought it or won it or?

    I saw someone on Youtube with the M16 sight, so I found the G3 sight picture online, and had two shirts printed. :)

    Yeah, so far I've been very pleased.

    Oh, guess who was the RSO when I asked to shoot at 600 yds this last time? The same fellow you and I had on our trip. I really don't think he remembered me from over a month ago. And, I know he's just being diligent and trying to protect the expensive state-of-the-art target system they have.

    However, when he looked at my rifle, without a scope, and asked how I was going to adjust for the distance, I couldn't help but smile a little as I replied "Well, I've got an HK 1200 meter rear sight on the rifle, so I thought I'd dial it to 600 meters and hold a little low."

    Well, to paraphrase the quote attributed to Dizzy Dean: "It ain't [participation] if you can do it."
