How fast can you shoot while staying accurate? Let's find out!
You need whatever big-game rifle you use most often with a scope that can be set at 3X or less. Shoot offhand at the standard NRA 50-Yard Slow Fire Pistol Target with the 8-inch black bull set at 25 yards.
Load one in the chamber and fill up the magazine. You have 10 seconds to get off five rounds (if your rifle holds four, you have eight seconds), 15 seconds to reload the chamber and magazine, and another 10 (or eight) seconds to empty the rifle again. If your gun uses a detachable magazine, you have five seconds to reload. If you look at the rifle while you’re reloading, you’re disqualified. Your goal: seven or eight hits in the black.
Drop one round, find it, and load it, while keeping your eyes on the target.
Current-manufacture Winchester Model 70, any caliber, with a low-power scope. You’ll see that controlled feed is not a substitute for correct loading.
