Sunday's range report

Ultra Raptor at 10 yds, bottom right. Cardboard holes where already there. I had 3 FTF but Raptor was lubed up a little too much, I think. Freedom Ammo, 230gr, new. Put 80 through it. Conditions where rainy and 54. We went because we knew no one would be there, we were correct!

Cool Hey Nice Shooting!

Ya done good there 'brew!!! But you completely missed three of those target dots!!! I'll pretend like I didn't see that, okay?

Thanks for the range report. Good idea to go on a rainy day. That way you miss out on all those fair weather shooters!!

Looks like the Raptor did a pretty good job there. The three FTF were probably just part of the break in routine. I'm sure that will improve with each additional range trip. By the time you hit 500, it won't be doing that kind of stuff. Enjoy shooting it and keep 'em in the black. Be safe!!

Thanks again for the report!!

I was saving the other dots to site in my SR22, but after putting it on a rest, It ended up just being me! I mean bad ammo... Definitely getting better with the Raptor, it is my favorite!

Nice shooting Hoffbrew, good luck with that Raptor.
The time change and I don't get along so well anymore but I have enjoyed the trails out your way :-) Almost stepped on a nice sized rattlesnake in a redwood forest a little southeast of Halfmoon Bay a few tears ago. Probably the closest I've ever come to a heart attack :-)

Hoffbrew thanks for the update on the Raptor and remember thats the BEST Kimber so it had to be operator failure on those couple of FTF. No problem. And for gosh sakes Dummy Up on those FTFs from now on just relate the good stuff

You did not post a pic of the Raptor! I think you may have posted pics previously. Is it a blued Ultra Raptor?
