    North Lanarkshire, the land that Summer forgot.
    Are they the pre-zero photos? Or were the groupings down to shaking with hyperthermia?

    Maybe you should have titled the thread, Zeroing below Zero???

    Lying in the freezing snow like that aren't you worried that your nuts will drop off and the wifle might run off with the milkman?

    it was a fun day rather than a range day.

    well as Jd knows i am not a kit man, i pick it up shoot it and if it hits the target i use it.
    But when he gave me a shot from that gun with its S&B scope ermmmm nice bit of kit.
    We have tried winchesters and federals in it now and both are shooting loose at 100.
    we may go today and get some new ammo for a try.
    as they say the rifle will choose the rounds.

    once its on the money i will post the pictures and then you will see a typical Jd group thumb nail at a 100....

    atb f.
