Ruger mini 30, 3rd time out :-)

...after last time out I adjusted the sights a little on the mini. The manual says one complete turn is about 5" at 100 yards. The farthest out I can get at my range is about 65-70' so I went 1/4 turn on the windage and a full turn on the elevation. Seems to have improved things at that distance. Hopefully I'll be able to find someplace outdoors with a little more run to get a better idea of what's happening at 100 yards?
Started out with 20 Sellier and Bellot 123gr FMJ to the third target from the top. Two of the misses above that target are from that batch, my glasses had fogged up a little. Turns the "ghost ring" into a "guess ring" :-) Up next the top target, 20 PPU 123gr SPRN, the first round of the first mag of that didn't fully go into battery when slingshotting. I was curious to see how the round nosed bullets did? After that there were no problems though and with the next mag the first round did properly chamber when slingshotting the action. last up was 20 PPU 123gr FMJ, 10 to the second from the top and a fast 10 to the bottom. The flash hider stayed in place, the more I shoot it the more I like the mini 30 :-)
