Recently, I instructed a marksmanship clinic. My wife was one of the participants. She was impressed to be one of the few riflemen of the group, but I was not surprised. So, during a recent range trip, I gave her a few challenges.
This was an evaluation she shot. She scored 45, the minimum score to be a Rifleman. However, this target was shot at 100 yards, not 50. So that means the target was to scale with a 600 yard target.
This was a 100 yard group she shot (on the same target - scaled 600 yards) using Federal 69 gr match ammo. Sub 2 MOA group.
This was a group she fired from 200 yards. Again, she used Federal 69 gr match ammo. Again, a sub 2 MOA group.
Now that we had her precision down, we decided to do some other challenges.
Her first time shooting with a red dot. Even though it is not centered, the small group is proof she maintained the same sight picture each time. A few clicks of left windage and elevation would have had her dead center.
This is my wife's first time shooting with iron sights. Not bad. Not bad at all.
