    cheap ammo

    Well this morning i phoned local farmer to me and asked could i zero my rifle,now the rifle 223 hunter 1in8 and some cheap ammo 9quid for twenty 55grn privvi s/p is all new to me ,as in never fired it i dont have scope for it yet, so i thought i know i have a sweet seventeen bsa on the shelf i will put that on it and see what happens ,just to put my mind at rest if it would shoot half decent group at 100yds ,well i stuck steel sheet out with some 1 1/2 circles on it first two shots just missing the sheet after some adjustments two holes two inches high 2 1/2 inches right next six shots all 1/2 inch over near touching ! all within 1 1/4 inch to say im chuffed is an under statement i didnt expect to get any where at all with the crap scope on and cheapest ammo in the shop, cant wait now to put proper scope on it, atb doug,
