    Range Day Ridiculousness

    I'm taking a ridiculous range day to celebrate a big milestone at my new job. I am probably going to expend $200-$300 worth of ammunition, possibly more. Pictures to follow at some point.

    Congrats on the milestone! Are you going to rent anything you haven't shot yet or are you just going to see how dirty you can get the guns you own?
    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    Just seeing how dirty I can get my guns. I am testing out a new AR15 I recently finished putting together, as well as getting some time behind the Henry 45-70 I bought awhile back. I ended up having to send it back to the factory because of QC issues. Henry definitely took care of me, and got it back to me quickly.

    Additionally putting rounds through my glock34, Rossi .357, and maybe my Ruger 22/45 but I'm running out of time.

    I hope your Temporary PTSD brought on by your hellish and nightmarish day at the range doesn't last too long. I read an article that said you should basically be curled up in a ball and screaming about wars you were never in by this point.

    I also have a .308 bolt gun I've been testing factory ammo for. Unfortunately, it seems to consistently shoot best with 175 grain Federal Gold Medal Match, which is about a dollar a trigger squeeze, but consistently shoots .5-1 MOA and makes me look like I know what I'm doing (I don't). I've spent about a year testing other ammunition types to see if it would shoot as well with anything else (preferably cheaper), and the answer appears to be a resounding "no." I gave in and ordered a case of it from Palmetto State today, since they were having a sale. I've got the round count up high enough at this point that I need to clean the barrel anyway. Might as well only feed it one kind of food from now on.

    I am proud to say that I ran out of range hours before I ran out of ammo, though. God, what an expensive and fun day.

    I'll be headed out for some group therapy after work today. Some Commie stuff, some 'Merican stuff, and some German hardware.
