Default Rifle shooting at 300 meters

Our local club reopened last Saturday with some Covid-19 related restrictions, 1/2 of the firing lines open due to distancing, max 45 minutes per shooter with reservation. Still felt great to be back at it

I took my two Swiss ordnance rifles, the Stgw 57 & 90

Military ammo

The GP11 (7.5 X 55 mm) is a great cartridge; it launches a .306 projectile weighting 174 gr at 2560 ft/s. The GP 90 is the Swiss version of the 5.56 X 45 mm NATO with a 63 gr projectile at 2989 ft/s

Here’s my shooting buddy trying out the Stgw 90

I shot 30 rounds in 10 shot strings with each weapon, best score of the day with each one

I am more of a handgun guy, but I intend to shoot more rifles this year and improve if I can get enough trigger time
