The Barracks / Re: Postal Match
« Last post by Niederlander on Today at 01:26:30 PM »
Gentlemen, I've sent the targets out to the ones who requested them.  The match is based on the Blunt system, but at 25 yards.  The simulated distances are 200 and 300 yards.  I've also got targets made that simulate 500 and 600 yards, but they are almost exactly the same size as the 200 and 300 yard targets.  I would copy the targets on to fairly heavy weight tan paper, and the larger calibers may take more targets, with less shots per target.  I'd like to have monthly matches, but right now I just want your feedback on what you think of the course.  The directions are included for using the same targets for the pistol course. 

Good shooting and let me know how it goes!

That is one of the nice advantages about APP.

Buy your bullets where available, or cast, whatever you can. They all shoot fine.

I  usually use boughten hard lube bullets with APP, and SPG with real black.
Both work fine with APP,

Allow me to impose.  As a long term user of APP, I have NEWS.  Well, information, not necessarily new.

Yes, APP is a SUB.  The flame and "authentic smell" are not necessarily all they are cracked up to be (that should start a fight).  APP may be used with ANY bullet, coated bullets, lubed bullets, BP Lubed bullets, BARE bullets.  No matter.  APP makes it's own "lube" and APP residue is NOT cumulative.  Each round fired takes the residue from the previous round with it.  Makes it super easy to clean up.

As a case in point, I don't have any "bare" bullets.  I just order bullets from whomever has the bullet I want in stock ready to ship.  Any lube is just fine.  Most of my current stock are of the "Crayon" lube variety for smokeless (gag) but APP doesn't care.  They shoot just fine.

Considering the ease of cleanup, no requirement for lube (ANY LUBE) I probably won't be bothered to return to BP.  Just Sooooooo much easier.  And yes ... I am Lazy.  Old Guys get to be lazy.

PS:  Almost forgot to mention;  the foregoing is also applicable to Cap Guns  ;D

Thank you immensely for that information. Now I know what I will be doing next in the reloading room. Although I probably should not do any actual test firing until after the neighbor moves his cows out.

Sounds like I may need to cast some more bullets and NOT lube them.

Nostalgia will set in, and I will remember when....

On another Board a question was asked, "what is your oldest carry knife "

I replied


" I suppose I lost my fair share of knives

but here is one I've had since 1956, it was my carry knife then
and it was carried in SCHOOL (Coral Way Elementary) to my Cub Scout meetings.
Fact is I even lost this one once, and it was found and returned to the school's office Lost & Found.


THAT would not happen today! Imagin the hissy fit in today's education environment ".


And I still have it!

SO then, what is YOUR oldest carry knife ?
