Thanks for coffee and grub.

Got home from our shoot around 5:00 afternoon and I was beat! Sunburned, a little shaky in the legs from being on my feet all day, a slightly scraped thumb and chapped lips.
But I had fun.

Shot cap 'n' ball and definitely have some glitches to iron out. Will need to use a different cap and powder in them. I'll try Triple 7 in the revolvers to get some extra oomph! for those reactive steel targets and leave the APP for the rifle cartridges.
Discovered that the Treso nipples on my '51 are too short for #11 caps, and those balls I cast from my new Confederate Arsenal .36 conical mold are just a bit too plump to force into the chamber with the rammer. I thought I had used pure lead, but the casting pot must have had some lead with tin mixed before I put the pure lead ingots in.

Oh well, mission accomplished to see how well the pistols performed. I'll use round ball next time and stouter powder, plus I've got RWS #1075 caps coming.
Gun cleaning today.
Sounds like fun.

Forgot, had regular Dr appointment on Tuesday, avocet nurse from insurance company caught up with me finally and wanted an A1C and a Vitamin D test, A1C looks good, not perfect but good, Vitamin D is in the toilet, now on supplements, diet should have taken care of it even with out much sun but one of my meds can drain it, may explain why I get tired easy.

Also applied for disability today, should go through no problem, had planned on working PT some when I did it at 62, reality, it likely ain't going to happen, will bump me up to where it would have been if I waited to 66 1/2.   Probably should of a year ago, but didn't want to admit it.   Do plan on cooking this year including the Muster.

If anyone is interested I am planning a Dutch Oven Gathering  September 17-19th at Rock Creek Station State Historical Park if anyone is interested.   Not all true historical cooking, a weekend of friends, cooking lessons, recipe exchange and just plain old Pot Luck meals from some of the finest dutch oven cooks in the country.   More in Cosies later.
