New critta gitta zero'd in

1 post in this topic

Okay, it has been a couple weeks since I shot these targets, thought I had thrown them but I did find them this morning.

a little explaining first: I shot 100 rounds through it breaking it in, cleaning it, etc. I tried 6 different types of ammo from 4 different manufacturers

My target numbering is as follows:

1-Center Target

2-top right target

3-bottom right

4-bottom left

5-top left

6-aiming for the upc symbol, there was a split in the code about 2/3rds of the way from left to right, I aimed for the "big" white stripe

First round:

1-Federal spitfire 17gr. Vmax

2-Winchester 17 gr. vmax

3-CCI 17 gr. Speer TNT HP

4-Federal Game Pt. 17gr HP

5-Hornady 17gr. Vmax

6-Hornady 20gr. XTP HP

Second target: barreled cleaned and cooled

1-Horn. 20 gr. xtp

2-Horn. 17 gr. vmax

3-CCI Speer TNT 17 gr

4-Winchester 17gr. vmax

5-Federal Game pt. 17gr. hp

6-Federal Spitfire vmax

Ignore the 30-30 rounds from my buddy, he was being funny.

all shots were from bags and at 50 yards (farthest option we had) When I get a new scope, I will try to get the 20gr. XTP's settled in, but for now, the spitfires and 17gr. Hornady's are definately going to be used for critta's

this is the critta gitta: Savage Model 93b 17HMR with accutrigger

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
