    atr replied to a thread I did it !! in Backpacking and hiking!
    I did it again! Just shy of 72 years of age and hiked into the cabin over the weekend. The snow was deep and soft and it was difficult getting through it. With the snow shoes I was sinking up to my knees, and without them up to my waist. It took...

    I usually shoot the 240 gr Keith with Unique, but I just purchased some of the 200 gr RN (0.430) from the vender here on the site. Again using Unique they shot very well this morning at 50 ft off-hand they all ended up in about a 6 inch square.

    in the 30-30 relative to my full power loads (150 gr J's @ 100 yds sight-in 1" high) my 10.2 gr load shoots almost dead on at 50 yds. I think at 25 yds the boolit would be climbing so I am not surprised you are shooting low at that range hope...
