Shot them side by side today. I had a good day in general and my rifle marksmanship reflected that. My support is a tractor wagon: that way, I could stay off the muddy ground.

Both rifles had such soft recoil that one of my friends thought he was shooting a 223 rifle.

Great illustration of the importance of sticking to one ammo type, brand and batch. At 50 yards, I got a 0.4" five shot group -- but 2" right and 1" below my point of aim. The reason: the rifle was zeroed with 175gr Georgia Arms match, fired with 168gr Federal Gold match.

Had much fun. Shot 25-06 and .270 bolt rifles, enjoyed both. Shot an inexpensive .22 Savage bolt action with the trigger as good as the two .308 rifles. I may have to get one of those, it's a true diamond in the rough. Shot an AK with a Primary Arms/Ultimak combo. The rifle had soft recoil and shot well for an AK, but I am getting increasingly uneasy with the takedown latch being too close to my face. Not sure what to do about that.
