Well, fianlly had a decent weekend to shoot - mid 60's, overcast and no wind! Last good range sesson was mid May due to blistering heat hear in IL!
Grabbed a TC Impact I set up for a neighbor boy to take him on his first deer hunt and some 223gn Powerbelts fueled with 75gns of Shockey Gold loose powder ( I have several lbs to burn up - dirty powder ). And, I grabbed my TC Pro Hunter to fine tune it a bit with 250gn TC Super Glides. I also thru in a bag of some TC 240gn HP Cheap Shot Sabots I had just bought as a low cost plinking round.
The Impact shot lights out at 50 yards with the Powerbelts - then I shot the Pro hunter at 75yds - the Shockwaves were OK but about 1.5in was average for 3. Then for giggles I shot 5 of the Cheap Shots - well, you can see 5 under 1.5in - I did not expect that and may be hunting with them! I grabbed the Impact for fun and shot 1 at 75 and hit bullseye dead center!
My routine was shoot - run a TC Cleraning and seasoning patch in and out 3 times and shoot again. After a sting of 5 I put on a fresh patch and repeated process. I was shooting 100 gns of 777 pellets in the Pro Hunter - first time I have ever used it and it was noticeably cleaner than Shockeys...
