Work just as well in 7.5x55mm (.30-30, .30-06, .303 British, 7.62x54R, etc...):

Well, cleaned out the local shop and got some older bullets: 150g FMJ and 125g SPs...

...they'll do the job!

Bring your M14, 2A1, 700, Tanker, Ruger PR, etc., and run some.  Granted, only 100 meters, but I'll provide small targets.

Hmmmm? Don't know where the fifth shot went, but for my eyes, I'm happy; aim point was at the neckline - near "7"
FR-7 @ 100 meters...



Your targets will be cat food tin lids.

Alright. Loaded up the remaining .308 brass , so come on down and run some this weekend, if interested.
LMK by 1000 hours  each day, else I won't guarantee that I'll be staying home all afternoon.
For that matter, hit the POC plate shoot on Sunday and come down afterwards for rifle shooting.
Thanks.

What time is the POC plate shoot and what are the distances?

This is a handgun shoot; no more than 50 feet is my guess.

Well, amazing what  some pistol powder can do in the rifle.
Even a poor and blind man like me can afford to take the rifle out with these loads.



Come on down with your '03, or .308 bolt gun and give them a whirl.
If your SMLE and Mosin shoot okay with .308" diameter bullets, we can do those, too. Limited amount of .311" diameter Speer 125g JSP on hand, too.

When I get a little ambition and do some casting, I always like to pour the Lyman 311410; such a versatile bullet.



With my visual acuity, I'll take it, 7 out of 10...

Just love the crisp, easy-to-see holes made from my .22LR Super Sabots...



Only shot from 25 yards, but the sabots jettison properly.
How much do these rounds sell for at SGAmmo (that would be for 7.5x55mm)?

No, that's "Super Sabot", not "Super Sabre"...
