Compared to my SAs the Baer is just amazing! Although my Hi-power and Wilson Spec Ops 9 seem to be a bit more accurate, but that is probably the 9mm and me . I have a set of Ivories in route soon which will make it my BBQ Gun on dress up nights...

That must be all you. Baer 1911 will outshoot most shooters.


I'd say put some more rounds through it and get it good and broken in.

Nice looking gun btw - I like that it has iron sights and a wood stock.

I like it too....they seem to loose something with all the plastic and then all the other mumbo jumbo people put on them....but then again I am stuck in the past.

I would think at only 25 yards you would not even need the scope....unless you want it for just the fun factor and I understand that.

I had a opossum that was getting very nasty around my new shop....for critters I usually try to just let them be, but when they start hanging around your front door and tehy will not leave and get nasty they have to be delt with. I don't think the opossum I was having trouble with was right in the head...he was out in day light and that is pretty odd for these guys. I put him down with my then new SVT at about the same distance you are talking about....then put him in the burn pile. Called the county to see if they wanted to come and check him out but they said just dispose of him....I figured they would want to test to see if he was rabid or not....he was just not acting like any other opossum I had come across.

I actually like the plaster stocks too. I put one on a project build on a 10FP I did a while back. it ended up as a 1/4moa gun.

What caliber? Above, my black gun is a factory .223 but the green one started life as an '06. Now it's a 6mm Ackley, fast-twist, for loooooong dogs.

.308

I like the looks too, it has the classic "rifle" look to it. I'm not big on the synthetic stocks either.

Well, we had to walk into the pit, Irene washed out a few culverts on the way in, and they haven't been repaired yet. So, no 1/4 moa hits, as I was just standing there shooting, with no rest.

That being said, I didn't touch the scope, these shots were taken at 45 yards.

I think I like this gun already.





The low one on the wood stake was on purpose, after shooting up the plate. I figured it would break it off, but not with FMJ loads.



I think with a bench rest this gun would have groups of 1" or so.

I'm really pleased, it racks rounds in the chamber nice, and shoots really well, right off the rack, I didn't touch anything. I guess whoever put that sticker on the scope knew what they were doing!

I do too!! Great artistry there, and the Xs for eyes are icing on the cake!

My experience is that a lot of 223s can be ammo sensitive. Mine tend to be. Also, I find that accuracy is more sketchy with the standard FMJ cheap stuff, even the better quality. Wolf or Bear is not good, PMC is okay, Winchester FMJ or Federal is better. But none of them are as good as my heavy-bullet handloads!!

The X's MAKE the drawing! I also find a lot more difference in accuracy with .223 than any other calibre. Shoot, with that rifle I pictured, I would shoot 144gr Match Austrailian and get a 1/2~ 3/4in group at 100m, 168gr off the shelf stuff, same, any factory .308, same, and not until I used my loads which were the same as Federal GMM, OR factory GMM, would it go to 1/4~1/2. However, with my old match Colt HBAR it seems the groups went from 3/4 to 2in depending on ammo.

Well, as much as I would like to take credit on the skunk taget, that is all my Wife's (resident artist) handiwork. I said: I need some skunk targets, she delivers. (only because she called *my* hand drawn turkey targets from a few years ago ducks.......)

I was shooting remington/UMC cheapie loads, the guy at the gun shop said the same thing, for better performance, get something that isn't FMJ, was his recommendation.

Why would non FMJ be more accurate?
