Yepper, aint done with this thing yet.

Pretty sure the scope is glued down for good now so...

Here's a pic of my sighter target before I ran back over to the high power range to ping some cutouts and gongs.

First (3) @ 6 o'clock were to make sure the scope was not moving, #4 & #5 (woops! too high) were sighters with adjustments, #6-7-8 are obvious, #9 was a zero after a click to two, I forget, then 2" up turret for a 200y zero (aprox). By the time I got to the high power range the steels were kinda shot up and I was out of paint so did the best I could and well, a miss is a miss. Aint the guns fault. My shakey-jake hold is getting better but it still needs work.

Stovey, I think you will like the RE22 powder. In my .300 WBY, 77.1 gr pushing a 180gr bullet (Hornady RN) is a nice, mild load that drops deer in their tracks and is very very accurate. I haven't looked at the .300 Win mag data lately, but a middle range charge weight of RE22 will probably end up being one of your favorites. It is a very consistent powder.

I've heard nothing but great things abouut SMK's and RE22 and am hoping my 300wm likes it. If it shows promise I'll run some paper out to 200y or paint a gong and do some work off (gulp) sand bags ( Mad ), maybe.

Use the magnification on your scope or camera to give us a bigger picture to better see your target with! Or maybe just save it in higher resolution. I found that 1000 pixels wide works well.

First 3 were at 9x, just shot to verify
I was on paper after bore sighting and that the new rings and bases were not coming loose. Then cranked up the power to 15x and sighted it in.

Working on replacement camera...sorry for the fuzz etc.

Also been working on my hold with my pellet rifle. Seems to help some.
