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.
