I went out between showers and sighted in my new mounts on my .257 Weatherby magnum.
Fairly good 5 shot group at 100 yards with 100 Gr. Spitzer. 120 Gr. Partition was about twice this size but still huntable.

I've been to Sherborne and it is always so crowded....
The only other people at Woodman springs were some Forest Rangers.

gtk, not yet. been thinking about it but I don't think I do enough shooting to justify the equipment.
Nor do I have the room to set up. I am however keeping the spent brass if you know anyone that reloads .257 Wby Mag.

Mostly just the deer hunting. A few squirrel hunts in the fall. I had a bass boat many moons ago.
