500 Jeffery sighted in for elk season
Hi, just got back from the Cheyenne Mountain Shooting Complex checking the "sight in" on my 500 Jeffery. I had to convince them to let me shoot it there, but the folks running the range are really nice and they did. The last time I checked it was 2 1/2" high at 100 yards, dead on at 25 and 175 which is just where I want it. Some things I noticed ...
1. It's not as loud as a braked 308 WCF, one was a couple of stations to my left.
2. It was dead on. The Talley QR rings and Leupold 1.5-5x scope still amaze me since I haven't touched the scope in over a hundred rounds.
3. I only fired 3 rounds but the recoil seemed non-existent. I must be truly punch drunk
Hunting elk with my son next weekend near our property up in Guffey, CO. I only have the weekend to hunt, business trip to Japan the following week. He thinks I'm trying to scare them to death lol
