Range Report (June 27)
Rem 700 SPS-V .308
I recently swapped the factory stock on my Remington 700 SPS-Varmint (chambered in .308) with a Hogue Over-molded stock. The swap was simple enough and today I made it out to he range for a bit to see how I liked the change.
First off, I really like the looks of the new stock.
Today's weather was 92 degrees and in my ignorance, I ran off and forgot my sandbags at the house. So I used my range bag and a shirt as a rest.
To my surprise the rifle really grouped well at 100 yards with Federal PowerShock 150 gr Pointed Soft Point ammo.
This was my best pattern of the day, which was actually the second series of 3 shots that I took.
Another pretty close one. The rest of the groups were similiar to this one, two really close and sometimes the third would trail a little.
Under the conditions, I'm very pleased with this. The stock also just felt better to me, instead of the plastic there was a grip to the Hogue stock which made for a more comfortable position. The factory stock also shot really well, I can't wait to see how this rifle does on sandbags and low wind.
Glock 36 .45 ACP
Today I focused on shooting and continuing to familiarize myself with my newly acquired Glock 36.
I loaded 4 rounds of FMJ range ammo into each clip and ended up shooting 5 clips through.
I shot at 25 yards and was very pleased with how well the .45 ACP patterned. The gun is enjoyable to shoot too, not a crisp snap in recoil but more of a big push, which I liked.
All patterns were pretty good, they spread out more as I sped up the shooting.
I could have done without some of the heat, but it was a great day to spend a few hours at the range.
