    Don't feel bad all, it's a given that bolts generally perform better than semi's when it comes to accuracy, because of the lock up and lack of moving parts.

    Very nice - and with LC ball ammo?

    Good shooting indeed!

    I've one like the first pic, C stock, Lyman 48 receiver sight, 17 front. It was built on a Mk1 receiver with the ejection port, 2 groove rem bbl. Mostly milled parts for furniture. I've not shot it in a long time but will try this weekend.

    Initially being young and dumb I was all worked up over AR's. 2 friends from a club we belonged to wanted to get M1's from the DCM and you had to fire a 50 round match, minimum, to qualify for purchase. The older guy, Kaz, had an 03 similarly built and went with that. These were 100 yd reduced events. We enjoyed the match much and went back several times for a couple years afterward.

    Anyhow Kaz had some RF stages that would bite him on the reloads, or maybe short stroking the bolt, can't recall. He usually was scoring in the low 400 range due to that. But once in a while when it flowed he knock out a 440-450 score and get folks attention.

    100yds was like shooting fish in a barrel for me, at least it was in years past, now I just shoot pistol, I have not pulled the trigger on a long gun in over ten years, but I bet that I could hit any man in the torso from 400yds out, but this thread is about the 03, and it is an accurate weapon, more accurate than ANY semiautomatic!
