No Gunblogger Rendezvous is complete without a Day at the Range.
Here are some pix from today’s outing:
Joe (The View from Northern Idaho) carefully prepares to destroy the 616 yard metal plate.
Zeroing-in the Barrett M82A1at 100 Yards. (That’s what a Mil-Dot Scope reticle looks like.) Mil-Dots are used to estimate the range for objects of known sizes.
See that speck below the rock face 2/3 up the mountain? (Me Neither). It’s a 55 gallon drum painted white.
Now it’s a 55 gallon drum painted white with lot’s of .50 caliber holes in it.
Yardage measured with Joe’s Leica 1200 yard laser range finder: 957.
Aiming dead-on shooters who had never fire a .50 caliber round before were scoreing first round hits at 957 yards. The Barret B.O.R.S. System (see top of scope) did a fine job!
