    M85 at 1,000 yds

    Its a long time (12 years) since I managed to shoot my M85 at 1,000 yds. I'd had the scope off and back on since then so a zero session at 300 yards and 600 yards was required. I had to refer to some old notes for my 1,000 yds elevation using some handloads (Sierra 175 MatchKings). There was a ten MOA wind blowing at Stickledown, Bisley but the old girl still does the business. V-Bull with the first sighter always puts a smile on my face. Picture is of the screen for the new electronic targetry at 1,000 yds. The first circle is the V-Bull and the next is the Bull. Shooting off the bipod.

    Having had the honour of shooting with/against Nigel at the 150th Imperial Meeting I can vouch for his retention of ability.

    Unlike me, the tinny bastard even managed to cart off some silverware for his efforts.
