I went to the range with my girlfriend today to shoot my Ruger M77 UltraLight 30-06 in anticipation of a deer hunt I will be going on in the first of January. I quickly found out it wasn't sighted in anymore so tomorrow I am going back to the range to try and get it sighted in. I've never sighted in a rifle before so I've done some reading, even printed out an article explaining how to do it so I can bring it with me tomorrow (http://www.chuckhawks.com/sight-in_rifle.htm). Is that a pretty good explanation?
I don't have a sled, spotting scope, or any other helpful equipment (nor can I afford those things at this time) but what can I bring/purchase cheaply to help myself out? The article recommends using .220 grain rounds I believe, but if anyone recommends another load please say so.
She actually enjoyed shooting more than I thought she was going to, so much that she keeps talking about wanting to get a hand gun. I want to turn this into a hobby we both enjoy, so I will be asking tons of questions about firearms and instead of making a new thread, I am just going to centralize all my newb questions to this thread.
Other gun newbs please feel free to post your questions in this thread also. The more information the better!
