Change of Position = Change of POI
« on: May 29, 2019, 03:14:45 pm »
My back was feeling the effects of a hard day delivering three utility trailer loads of firewood to our community hall yesterday, so shooting prone from x-stix was out of the question. The getting up and down would have been less than fun.

So today I shot sitting with x-stix. Much to my surprise I had to lower my rear sight from the prone sighting position. Once dialed in, my Shiloh #1 Sporter in 45-70 shot like the Trooper it is at 200m.

Should I have expected the difference? I rarely shoot sitting with x-stix so it came as a surprise.

The other surprise was the benefit of using grease cookies under hot, dry conditions. Last time I shot a week ago, I used loads that lacked the grease cookie and my rifles fouled up pretty bad after just 5 rds.
