    Fiddling with Windage and Elevation

    I was shooting German surplus ammunition out of my PTR 91, GI model rifle, off of a table with my ammo box/airsoft BB sock gun-rest. Irons sights; no scope. The targets are shown in the order that I shot them. I started off with 12” x 18” targets (turned sideways, so really 18” x 12”) at 200, 300, and 400 yds.


    First five rounds at 200 yds:


    First five rounds at 300 yds:

    (Shots 1, 3, and 4 were misses.)

    First five rounds at 400 yds:

    Along with dealing with the distance, I put the target up too high and it was partially hidden in the shadow of the target frame.

    Second five rounds at 400 yds:

    I attached the target to a white backer (old target turned around) and put it lower on the frame. (Shots 1, 3, and 5 were misses, wide I'm guessing.)

    Second five rounds at 300 yds:

    (Shots 1 and 2 were misses.)

    Second five rounds at 200 yds:

    At the end of that string I moved the rear sight to the left a little.

    Now I put a “Bunker” target at 100 yds and fired five rounds at it:


    And then another five rounds:


    Third five rounds at 200 yds:

    The 5th shot either totally missed the target or it went through one of the other holes. After that string, I moved the rear sight a little more to the left.

    10 rounds at 200 yds:

    After the 5th round (shots 3 & 4 were misses), I raised the elevation 1/8 of a turn. At the end of the string I moved the rear sights to the right and brought the elevation up again (not sure of the amount).

    2nd 10 rounds at 200 yds:

    After the 3rd round I lowered the elevation of a turn. After the 5th round I moved the rear sight a little to the left, and lower the elevation another of a turn.

    Third five rounds at 300 yds:


    Third five rounds at 400 yds:


    At this point I put up a small bulls-eye target at 50 yds to work on the windage some more. However, I forgot to take a photo of it. Then, to finish up the day, I put up these two targets at 50 yds:



    (The diameters of the circles are 1”, 1.5”, 3.25”, and 5.5”)

    Cool! Let us know how it does. And remember, if there aren't any photos, then it didn't happen.
