Ok I thought he meant a single match
at 100 clicks my bad
This is at 50 yards with Iron sights 444marlin Leverevolition ammo
That's some pretty good shoot'n FOUR4D4.
Especially with iron sights. My eyes aren't that good anymore.
Tell me - how can you stand to shoot that Thumper? You're more of a man than I am. I owned one of the 444's over 30 years ago when I was a tough young buck. Couldn't stand the recoil then - certainly couldn't stand it now. About 6 shots and back to the barn for me.
As for the "match trick". I was just joking with ya. I don't know what he was shooting at. Too far away for my old eyes. Joking again.
hombre243. I never tried the match in the straw trick as a kid. The box says - "Keep away from children." I guess I could try it now??
More jokes - when will it ever stop? Ya see - at my age, I still care. It just doesn't matter much anymore. Life is too short to take everything serious.
May I add to the statement now.
That feat was not that hard to do !
My young fella was in the Australian Army for 6 years, and he taught me that if you shoulder the rifle, pointed down, and when you lift it up to sight, you have eliminated one dimension, ie left and right fields. Therefore at first sight of the matchbox, let drive, and you can hit it 8 out of 10 times.
The problem was between the trigger and the ground.
Me old mate Bill picked it immediately.
I was compensating for a scope that was not lined up properly.
So after a lecture and some practical work from Old Bill, everything was on target, and several good sideways taps made no difference to the MOA still under 1" at 100 yds, and that's plenty good enuf for hunting
You have always got to remember Windage and Elevation
Sorry about the thread jump(hijack)
Pretty nice groups at a 100 meters Bucky. That will get it done.
It just doesn't matter much anymore. Life is too short to take everything serious.
That's the honest to God's truth. Most people take themselves way to seriously. Nobody gets off this spinning rock alive...lighten up and enjoy yourself.
Did I make a booboo
Hey Bucky, I thought it WAS your thread. Keep the goodies coming. I always love to read about Oz.
Yes, by all means, keep the goodies coming.
Always good to hear about Down Under.
I too am sorry for the hijack.
All good down here.
The world did not end (again)
So Santa will come to us all !
Let's get over the festive season, and in mid January get back into hunting again.
