Shooters Holiday
« on: September 07, 2021, 01:02:27 PM »
Good time out on Jerrys farm this weekend.  Ringing steel at 600 yards with a .50 Govt Sharps was a fine thing indeed.  Heck, digging dirt with those big slugs to find the range was plenty fun

My biggest disappointment of the weekend was that we were never able to find splash and so couldn't adjust to make hits on the mile target  :-\

Unless it's puking afterwards....all over the dash of your car....in front of the girl you are trying to impress. ::)

I'll bet you guys are thinking you could have done without the visuals about now.

May want to scatter football field marking chalk in front and to sides of target, don't think it would hurt soil or maybe lime if soil is too acidic

Yes, maybe. I'm going to try the 300 WM next and if I still can't see impacts, I may try Lady Catherine ::) :o ;D
