I've never had access to a Ransom Rest. I've always used sandbags and worked on getting the best group I could. Once I find a good load on the bags, I go to prone. I actually like this better because when I get a few good 50 yard groups, I know I'm capable of doing it and it didn't come from a machine.
Cheap Quality Bullets!!!!! Help!!!!!
I have a new 1911 that is capable of 50 yard x-ring accuracy using Remington match 185gr JSWC over 4.5 gr of Bullseye. I love the accuracy of this load....but these bullets are way too expensive for me to shoot all year in practice and competition. Does anyone have a cheaper but equally accurate .45 bullet that they use??? Star bullets are hard to find, so for now they are out of the equation until Precision Delta gets their tooling up and running.
My only other option is to use cheaper stuff for the short line and stay with the Remington JSWC for the 50 yard line.
