    My coworker needed to get his hunting rifle zeroed for his yearly elk hunting trip, so I decided to go with him. We went to the Chestnut Mountain range.

    I had taken the scope off my 10/22 to put loc-tite on all the screws, so I needed to get it zeroed too. As if by magic, the 10/22 was still zeroed even after having the scope mounting system completely disassembled :D

    Here's my coworker on my 10/22:

    Here's what we were shooting that day:

    Here's me shooting my wife's carry gun, the Taurus 85SS:

    Oh! I was going to say, that was no elk gun!

    Remember, shot placement is more important than caliber.

    It's in in the John's Mountain WMA AND the Chatahoochee/Oconee National Forest.

    It's about 6 miles west off I75 Exit 320, northwest of Calhoun, GA.

    Yep, I've been there. $5 for how ever long you want to shoot...well until you run out of ammo! It's a nice range, just bring you on target stands...we didn't know at the time and had to use tree limbs...they don't stand up to well to the ol' .300 mag or .40.

    One thing I realized...bullets skip...one should always watch background.
