It's Time.....Weather forcast this morning.....High 70 at noon....dropping to 52 by 4 PM. Lows 34 tonight...53 high....32 low...next 7 days. Almost perfect for Deer. Can let em hang.

Also for sighting in...Temp and Humidity do affect the process. Sight in at 70+ and then hunt at 25 deg cooler and ya get a little different ballistics. Hope to get started tomorrow. Have 3 guns to get ready. All .308s. Will zero at 75 with Rem 150 gr kor-loks. After I use these up will start using the reloads for next year. The Rems have performed well over the years but have been hard to find around here in .308. But I wont have that problem any more.

Temp 40 right now....High 50 today....no wind. Will line up the grandsons .308s today. But first have to rebuild the target frame. Its pretty well shot up. New 2x2s and a new layer of 1" insulation board for backer. Hopefully they are still on from earlier firing....but got to be sure, they start Saturday, early 2 days of youth season.

When they get home from school they will shoot and make final adjustments on the scope for their eyes. Forecast is Partly sunny Saturday, high around 55. Rain starting Late Saturday night into Sunday again high around 55. Lows in the 40s. They can only take ONE each youth season so maybe both will score saturday....like last year. Regular season starts the 10th of Nov.

After today will shoot them again Thursday...run a couple of patchs thru the bore, clean and oil the actions. Gettin ready is ALMOST as much fun as hunting......:D

Both the Savage and Marlin are within 1/2" of center. Will leave them as is until the boys shoot them. Everybodys sight alignment/sight picture is different even with a scope. Will make final adjustments to their liking.
