Yes, the rifle is adequate

Last year I built up a DMPS LR-308. It shot fairly well, and I have been pretty pleased with it. Recently, I adjusted the scope in the rings to true up the reticle with the plane of the receiver top.

Up until yesterday, I had not had a chance to check the zero.

At the North Coast Blogger Shoot, I finally got a chance to check the zero before turning people loose with it. So, here is the 5-shot group testing the zero. Shot number 4 was a called "flyer" that I jerked the trigger on. Even so...:


With Quarter:


At the end of the day, I still had a blank target, so I shot a 10 shot group. By this time, we had a variable breeze blowing from the right at 5-10 mph. Here is that group:
I'd say that was adequate. ;)

Oh, and I think that JayG might have a picture of the "World's Most Dangerous Librarian" making smiley faces with it from 100yds. Hopefully he will post them soon.

Pax,

That's great, considering where you started with that rifle :-) You done good Newbius!

That's JayG on my AR. And, Breda on the 308 at the bottom of the pic is making smiley faces on her target.

Good morning :)

Thanks for stopping by and linking to your post. Now that I see how well the 308 shoots I REALLY need to go put some rounds thru it!
