Range Report

Finally got out to the range today to test different ammo in the 582 Series Mini. Started off warming it up at 50 yards with 55 grain fmj then bumped out to 100 yards. Nothing to write home about with the the 55's. Switched to an old favorite of the 186 mini that I'd loaded about 15 years ago, 60 grain Sierra HP's sitting on top of 23.5 grains of H335. The result was quite surprising and is attached.

This mini has a trigger job, buffer and reduced gas port but is otherwise bone stock. Using the 6x24x44 scope from the bench might have helped! Thinking about moving up in bullet weight a little at a time to see if it has a sweet spot.

Happy Shootin!
