I put on a 12x lyman on my old 37 and boresighted it.i was aiming at the #5 you see and shot these 5 with Eley black box Match.i thought the group was about inch (but close to POI ) so I put the gun back in the case for next week to find tune.when I grabbed the target I was floored.
I was seeing light from other holes through the target backer!
I'll take it!!

That old 37 shoots!
It might not be lucky, good shooter, good ammo, and a good rifle working together. 👍

Great shooting! Not too surprising, those 37s were shooters. I believe they were what the Stidworthys shot back when they dominated the sport.

For those of you who don't know this fella, he's one of the shootin-est guys I know. Nicely done, George!!

That 37 must really like that Eley ammo you have. 37's are great shooters for sure.

I may not be smart but I can lift heavy objects

I have a shotgun so I have no need for a 30-06.....

Speaking of lucky groups, this is a 220 swift at 100 yards. Try to get 2 bullets keyhole at that range that close to the bull...

Yup, those 37s are definitely shooters. I foolishly passed up a deal on a 37 at a gunshow a few years ago and still kick myself. It was in pristine condition with a scope just about identical to the one in the picture for $700... by time I realized my mistake and went back to buy it somebody else realized what it was and bought it...

I love it when it all comes together like that.

shrapnel-


A friend of mine has a 5 shot group with his 222 at a 100 yd with 4 shots perfectly round and one completely sideways in the group is still a 1/2 inch. That is funny stuff

Cbashooter: WOW!
That isn't luck - that is an amazing grouping there at 100 yards with a 22 rimfire!
Keep up the good work.

I believe it. Great shooting. Those 37's were shooting sob's. My old gunsmith friend who loves Winchesters told me that the 37's often shot better than the 52's.

The 37 Rides again,


I used to only shoot shotguns and rimfires, then I made the mistake of getting a subscription to handloader.......
