    2015 Black dot of doom

    Thought I'd kick start a new dot of doom thread for 2015 with the first shots from Wapinschaw lifted from the other thread followed by my effort today!!

Schmidt & Bender 8 x 56, dot obscured by reticule! Resting on range bag and rolled up jacket. My stalking is mostly woodland, very few prone shots so I don't fit a bipod. I just use a stick, rest on a tree, rock or whatever is around.

    Myself, I'd been out for a stalk with no success so decided to check my rifle after a pull through rather than a full on clean.

    1st shot up left ish cold clean barrel and next 2 ding dong using the .308 off quad sticks with cheap old rubbishy PPU 165gr SP's!

    So 6 shots so far with a 50% strike rate in the dot. It can only go one way from here!!

    That's certainly "Top Darts" Stratts, really nice shooting!
    I went out today for a walk about with the 270 and decided to show myself up by having a go. I was using my Parker Hale Safari (.270) with Norma 130g SP ammunition. The range was a good 100 paces and I was shooting off my tripod sticks. I have to say that a 1 inch dot looks awful small and hard to find when in a field covered in nearly a foot of snow, but Hey Ho that just adds to the "challenge"!
    The first two shots (Marked 1 & 2) showed that the scope was putting the shots about 1/2 inch below the "Black Dot" (A 1" Birchwood Casey Shoot and See "Dot") so rather than adjust the scope I compensated by an inch but unfortuinately pulled the third shot slightly righ (Marked 3)t. I then adjusted the scope and tried a 4th shot which clipped the 1" Dot (Marked 4) so I am quite happy with that.
    I will have another try another day and see if I can improve on these results but even so each shot would have resulted in a clean kill on either a fox or a deer.
    I do have some video footage which I will upload after editing it.

    Yes Paul, I know what you mean, it's not the best of shooting which I happily admit to, even if all 4 shots would certainly have been a very dead fox or deer!
    Mind you, I'm sure you know that old saying - "The proof of the pudding is in the eating".
    Let's see how others who take on this "challenge" fare.

    If I remember correctly, the rules are that it's your first three shots at 100m on a one inch dot, shot as you usually would in the field, right? If that's correct, I may have a go at it when I'm next in Bisley for a range day, when you're allowed to muck about a bit (in a safe manner, obviously...).

    Re-scoped the .270 today, so thought I'd have a go at this & post my efforts. I zero about 1 1/2" high at 100 yards, but forgot the point was to get rounds in the dot

    150 yards off sticks, 130gr Federal Powershok
