My speed seems to stay about the same, maybe a bit quicker and with the 9mm the second shot is almost as accurate as the first. If I do have a flier it's always the second shot. And it's usually low. I'm also continuing to work on pressing the shot as soon as it's on the target instead of hovering then pressing the shot. I'm also still working on not taking my finger completely off the trigger when I'm shooting controlled pairs. I'm still also shooting with both eyes open.
Little things but it will make me more skilled. I'm not going to load up my plate with more things until I'm happy with these.
Mr WK worked on a more accurate load for his M&P .40. After Sunday's tests it looks like a 165 gn plated flat point bullet with Tite Group is the most accurate with Bullseye being the next most accurate. We're going to pick up some 180 gn bullets and test again with the same loads to see if there's any difference. For now, it looks like the 155 gn bullets just are not accurate in that gun with the powders we have.
It didn't start out to be an entire day of what's the most accurate load but it sure turned out that way.
From the pistol range, we moved to the high-power range. Mr WK's 30-06 Mossberg really liked the Hornady 168 gn bullet de-molyed with Varget. The Hornady 150gn soft point with IMR 4895 not so much.
I had a similar problem. This summer when the weather was warmer I was shooting ½" groups at 100 yards with my DPMS .308 with Hornady 150 gn FMJ loaded with H 335. Today neither of us could get a decent group with them. What got us back to ½" groups at 100 yards was a Hornady 110gn V-max bullet with H 335. This summer I couldn't group those worth a darn.
So now we've got to have warm weather ammo and cold weather ammo for our rifles. Who knew?
The knitting on my SIL's Cranberry Tones Monkey Socks (is that really gonna be the name?!) is going strong. As I mentioned in the last post I had my SIL try them on and they fit. I've finished the first one including weaving in the ends. On the mate, I had two more 11 row pattern repeats to do on the foot but that is also now complete. All that is left is to knit the toe decreases on the mate, weave in the ends and that will be that.
The cashmere watch hat for my BIL is also moving along. The hat will have 109 rounds and 15 decrease rounds based on the first hat. I've got 46 rounds done. Interestingly, both my SIL's Monkey Socks and this hat have the same number of cast on rounds, 96.
