I just noticed something from this morning's shoot. I usually take along two or three rifles to the range and confirm zeros on my rifles I plan on using for hunting. I've used a 358 Winchester for hunting quite a bit the past few years just because it is handy and always seems to hold it's zero from year to year. I shot just one confirming shot this morning and it was right where it should be from 200 yards. When I got home I pulled out the last target on this rifle where it was confirmed about 2-3 months ago and was shocked. It may be just dumb luck, but this is one reliable rifle. It's a Douglas Barreled 98 Mauser. I guess I'll still carry this one the most this fall. Here's a picture of the two 200 yard targets together.

Looks good to me. Don't think you will have any problems.

Looks like you have a matched scope, rifle, and load. Don't change a thing!

That is sweet. There is nothing like boring regularity when shooting. I love it. I don't like surprises from year to year.

There's a Custom Shop Model Seven on Gunbroker right now. Except...the price is like $2000. I quit looking at that one real quick. The new Stainless Ruger Hawkeyes in 358Win should be a nice rifle. Also I've yet to see one of the new Model 7 CDLs in 350 Remington Magnum but I could probably be talked into one of them money allowing. So many guns, so little time...

So is there a reason you leave it shooting low and to the left \:D ?
