[quote="joemo"]Nine turkeys is great. I would keep doing whatever your doing

I guess I need to be clear. After turkey's things went down hill. I missed the first five pigs. Since they look as big as a pumpkin when I was on the animal close I took the shot. Not aiming at a spot.

Sight picture?

What do you shoot at? For practice I have been going down to a indoor range to shoot bulls eyes with my 1712. I went to shoot our monthly match started on turkey's and shot a nine.

Weaver T24 focus?

I put a Leupold 6.5x24efr on a savage anschutz to shoot indoors at 25 yards at bulls. It won't focus at 25. It's been back to Leupold twice. Anyways I want to put a scope on it for bullseye sand was wondering if a T Weaver will focus down to 25


Thanks

Re: scope stand ??

Those are not what I am talking about. They had a round plate at the bottom maybe 15-20 pounds. The rods were like those. Who knows they may have been made in a shop. They did have a military drab canvas case.

scope stand ??

Back in the mid 70's I shot on a ROTC rifle team. We shot small bore, position. We had these spotting scopes that I presume were military spotting scopes, the stands were rods that would screw together. I think there were three but we usually only used two. The base was something like a barbale weig...

Steel question?

I am wanting to shoot my 223 and 22-250 at steel. These will be my own targets! Can I shoot 22 caliber on steel without damage at 100 - 400 meters? I have some 24" round 1/2" mild steel already but never shot them but if that won't work I will buy ar500 steel
