Title: More 265 Yard Shots, 73' 44-40
Post by: Bryan Austin on December 07, 2019, 11:51:26 AM
Howdy guys....just another great morning at the range.
To make a long story short, the scope is set to 100 yards so you know what must be done when shooting out to 200 and 265 yards without adjusting the scope. I was very pleased with the results.

Another wonderful morning at the range. It was 32 degrees when I arrived, clear and no wind. I set up four targets. 7, 25, 200 and 265 yards. I also used the same load for both rifle and revolver. 25.8gr of Reloder 7 and 220gr 43-214A bullets. Starline brass with CCI-300 primers. Rifle is an Uberti Winchester 73' with a Malcom 6x scope. This scope make a 100 yard target look like a 25 yard target.

1,350fps Rifle, 760fps revolver

Revolver is an Uberti "Buckhorn" 44 Magnum with a 44-40 cylinder with a 7" barrel.
