The wife and I got up early and headed to the range. I wanted to give her some more trigger time with the new Remington Alaska TI in 270 WSM. At first the muzzle jump was too much for her, so off to Mag-na-port to have it tamed. Shoots like a dream now. Anyway she was having a hard time getting used to the loading and the action. She had been hunting with my old Remington pump .308 she now thinks of it as her rifle. So her groups were all over the target. Within 6 inches of center but no groups. I noticed this last trip as well, so this time I loaded up about 100 rounds of Remington 22-250. I have a SPS with the bull barrel and it is a joy to shoot. I set the trigger to match her rifle and set her up and let her shoot about 50 rounds. I coached her on the loading and how to cycle the action and the other fundamentals. I watched in the spotting scope as her groups got better and better. Her last few shoots could be covered with a dime. I then had her line back up on target with her 270 WSM she then put the next 3 rounds in the bullseye. She was able to learn how to shoot the 22-250 without worrying about the recoil. When she picked up the 270 she just did the same thing. Was very proud of her. We are headed off to Valdez soon to chase Black Bears. I feel confident that she can get the job done with her NEW rifle.
