    Had some shooting fun today

    Put a hooded NM rear sight on my 308 rifle the other day, . . . and well, . . . day before yesterday, . . . took it out to the 1000 inch range, . . . could not get anything to cooperate, . . . quit, . . . came in, . . . put everything away.

    Today, . . . 53 deg and breezy under a beautiful sun shine (mostly) decided to go back.

    Put up white butcher paper about 4 ft square, . . . because I didn't have a clue where this thing would shoot after the debacle the other day.

    Stuck a little dirty bird 9 inch target in the middle.

    Started at 100 yds, . . . rear sight all the way to the bottom, . . . centered as best I knew left to right.

    First three rounds not only cut paper, . . . but was a 10, a 9, . . . and the 8 at the top of the target.

    Woo-hoo..............

    Took her back to the 200 yd table, . . . put the rest of em in there as you see em, . . . not one had to break butcher paper off the target.

    All done with open sights, . . . 75 yr old eyes, . . . no glasses, . . . and yeah, . . . Thanksgiving is already good this year.

    May God bless,
    Dwight

    First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.

    I actually don't have a good pic of it since I put it in a walnut stock again, . . .

    Springfield M1A, . . . just like my M14 from 'Nam, . . .

    But this is one just like it (even if mine shoots better, . . . lol).

    May God bless,

    Nice shooting Dwight!

    That is certainly "minute of deer" with opens at 200!

    Those Garand type sights are by far the best of any service rifle.

    P.S. not sure what you were shooting out of it, mine loves UMC 150gr FMJ, or try some M118
