Shooting Baby Aspirins with the 97D Rifle

Andy Giambi Breaks Aspirins One by One with 17 HMR at 50 yds.
  After the huge success of our "700 Yard Milk Jug" shooting video with the 97D Rifle in 6.5mm BRM... We were looking for a different approach to make yet another fun accuracy video. Andy Giambi and I (Eben Brown) were visiting about this when the idea of shooting aspirin tablets came up. A couple of days later, Andy called and said, "I've got it all figured out." He said he could hit aspirins at 50 yds with 17 HMR!
  Now, the idea to do it with 17 HMR amounts to doing it the hard way because the smaller the bullet, the closer to dead-center the shot has to be to register a hit. There's hardly any room for error with 17 HMR. And, there's even less room for error shooting the smaller "Baby Aspirins".
  Actually, this isn't the first time Andy has done something extra-
ordinary with the 17 HMR. The "396 Yard Prairie Dog" shot was my first glimpse at his ability to hit with the accurate 97D Rifle. And since we're introducing 17 HMR in the Standard Model 97D, I was excited to get
some fancy accuracy shooting recorded on video!
  Well, a calm day finally arrived and we set out to make our attempt. Andy's wife Linda recorded the event in still photos and I used two video cameras for the action. I think the video speaks for itself so I won't go into it too much here. However, a lot of times folks want to know exactly every item of equipment
  used: Of course the rifle was a Model 97D chambered in 17 HMR. The scope was a 97D Riflescope* which is 4-12x40mm parallax adjustable. We used Hornady 17 HMR ammo with 17 gr. Vmax bullets. The shooting rest is a TS500 sitting on a Shooters Ridge shooting bench. Andy made his targets by hot gluing the aspirin tablets to cocktail straws.
