    Should have put a m1907 sling on it and shot prone!
    I think its funny that most of his shots went high.
    You would think he/spotter would adjust the sights.
    Still like his vids.

    I need to drag out the K31 and see if i can still see the rear notch. i need to find something to shoot in cmp vintage.
    The rear sight is a little closer that the K98

    Yeah his table and rest didn't look terribly sturdy. Not to mention he had the rifle resting on his hand which was on the rest. Seems like you'd get more movement that way? He had the sights jacked up so he was holding extremely low.

    That's some tough shooting with that tiny ass rear notch. I'm spoiled rotten with that damn scope on my K31. Would love to stretch it beyond 120 yards. I think my K31 is probably the most accurate rifle I own and most capable of shooting at very long ranges. Some day....

    Interesting posts.

    You will have to work long and hard to come close to GP11.

    I think its not hard to do. Iron sights I have posted sub 2moa groups fairly often----now getting those groups in the 10 ring is another issue.
    I really have not looked to deep into it but I would like to know what the swiss mil spec is on GP 11 and the rifles also.
    Im going to gander that GP is good enough for issue at 4moa. Im sure it can do better as it has for me. They use a high BC bullet which may give it a edge over say a M2 or M80 ball bullet?

    I wont knock him i have seen him do well shooting . I think this was about as real as it gets. Just took a rifle and ammo plunked down set sights to 1000 and let them rip.
