Scoped and sighted in

Recommended Posts

Finally got my new scope in for my long range shooting. Actually I had it on my CZ PT 22LR for a couple of weeks to see how that shot with it and now put it on my 6BR (Got another Sightron 6-24x42 comming to put back on the 22).

Got out early this morning to get it on paper and sighted in. The scope is a Sightron 10-50x60 with fine crosshair & Dot. The rifle is a savage action with 28" barrel (don't know maker as I bought it used) fitted into a Manners stock.


I loaded a number of various loads and found that it seems to prefer Varget the best. The loads are Lapua brass with Remmington 7 1/2 primers and 29 grains of Varget topped with a 105 grain Lapua Scenar bullet.

This 100 yard 5 shot group puts the projectile right at the top of the inner diamond at 200 yards. Our range only goes to 300 yards so have to find another place that will give me some long distance shooting


Should be a fun shooter with the pasture poodles on the far away knobs. and it's just plain fun to shoot.

Still haven't been able to tag this one yet
