Yesterday I was cleaning up the carbine I used to shoot the sabots and found that the scope was loose -- the scope bases were not tight to the rail and the scope moved easily front to back. Now I'm not a great shot and I mentioned how I couldn't get the two 7.62 Tok shots to touch and it was only 50 yards and I was at 9 power on the scope. I can't say for sure if the scope had anything to do with the accuracy or not -- of course it doesn't help when you're already a bad shot.
I had already started the day out bad at the range. I had an old box of Sellier&Bellott ammo that I was using to sight in the scope before trying the sabots. I was having a heck of a time getting the scope to zero in but never thought to check the mounts -- figured it was just me. Then I got a squib load and a bullet stuck in the barrel -- so I had to pack up and drive home to try and get the bullet out. I got back to the range and fired those two shots and figured I better stay with them and not push my luck. I'm going to try again in a couple of weeks, but with a tight scope and better sight-in ammo.
