I went to Sacramento Valley Shooting range this AM. finally renewed my yearly membership and 300 yd. range qualification. I had not shot paper in a couple years. Glad I did to put everything where it should be. Looking forward to taking the 7mm TCU back to shoot silhouettes. I hadn't shot my nylon 66 in a year or more. Cleaned it up last PM got it to shoot acceptable groups at 50 yards. I did not save the target. Not picking on AR users but I got a kick out of guys trying to qualify for the 300 yard range by putting 5 shots in a 4" triangle. My 204 has over 2,000 rounds through it. Just happy that it still shoots better than I do. Overall pleased with the results. Total overall shot groups:204 = .232 @ 100 yds. look out G. squirrels. I see red mist!17 HMR = 1.073 @ 50 yds. 9 shot group. Thought I had shot 10 times. Can't even count to 10 using the Contender. Mach II = .708 @ 50 yds. 5 shots. 7mmTCU = .628 @ 50 yds. (pistol)question: what am I doing wrong that I can not get full sized photos to post? Thanks. Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

Are you resizing them too small prior to posting them on Photobucket? I like to make them about 640x480 or 800x600 prior to posting them there. Then they come out as a nice size for the forum here. Just a thought.

Steve when you are retrieving the image from photobucket are you copying the [img] code at the bottom of the list?

Posted ImageIt must be your settings on photobucket making them so small, not your phone. The image that is posting is only 160px × 120px. It's like you're using the avatar setting.
