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

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
