View Full Version : How are these groups for a noob?

04-22-2008, 1:19 AM
Only 25 yards...but thats all I got thats close to me, chinsy red dot <50 bucks.

10 round groups, no bi pod. I finally realized I started shooting a little more accurately about half way through when I turned the reticle intensity down to 1 from 6...

Comments? Critiques?

Not bad at all. Pretty sure that's better than what I had going when I first started shooting.

Hey at least you hit the target! My first time out with my Saiga .308, I got ballsy (read: retarded) and set up my target at 100 yards (never having fired a rifle before). I didn't even hit the target ONCE until I put about 40 rounds through her - I was having a hard time learning how to properly line up the out-of-box sights...

Either you're pushing or you need to adjust windage, but you're doing good.

next time you go... try to borrow a rest of some sort, or at the least a bipod, that way you can figure out if it's the rifle that needs adjustment (ie: windage, elevation, etc.) or if it's something you're doing (too little trigger finger, too much trigger, trigger slapping, etc.)

they look good for no bipod and your first time out.

They look fine.

Shoot for groups, not bullseye.

That looks good.. What gun/caliber were you shooting with?

Let me clarify...not my "first" time out... maybe my 6th with a rifle...but probably my 4th or 5th with my gun, but still consider myself a noob, since me and a buddy usually only split 100 rounds per time since 223 is expensive..

Shooting a Sig 556, that was 55 gr federal.

I actually shot a gun for the first time in my life last july or so.

Oh ya and thanks for the comments, I would really like a legit sight, it seems like I have glare through the sight on the gun, I mean it works, but now I want something a little more ... well you know...
