Would make sense. I had it adjusted for 200 yds., but of course the targets at BRR weren't that far away . . .
overshot quite a bit.

Thanks Scotty.

River City, I was referring to the difference of your shot to hit ratio between the first and second skirmish of the Muster last year, after Drydock suggested adding a little elevation pilgrim! Thought you were going to run out of ammo on the first skirmish, and you didn't miss on the second!
It is far better to remain silent, and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt!

Oh, . . .OK.
But still partially explains The NE Muster fluster. Did not change sights from last setting. Well, that and with new meds my blood sugar dropped.

If you don't care for Scotch, you can always mix it with Gatorade for a "Gun Shoot Thingy" cocktail!  (We'll explain that when you get here......)

Mules are feed, wagon loaded.  Leaving Tejas coastal plains within the hour.
Should make camp near Kansas/Nebraska border around sunset today, and then Taylor/Sargent on Thursday.
Godspeed.

All packed. Col. Diamond rolls in tonight for supper. We'll leave tomorrow after breakfast and be in camp around 1:30 or so.

(On a side note, the USPS Tracking says the new seating die should be delivered today. Hope so, 'cause then I'll load up another 30 rounds or so for the Mauser.)

General Pisptr, I'm bringing that 1860's leather trunk for Ft. Hartsuff that we talked about. Also, Ned, bringing orange water cooler and three .303 brass cases.
And Delmonico, found a little something for you that I think you'll like.

And don't forget those Door Prizes!

I will only admit to being a lousy shot.

If'n Diamond is that susceptible to the power of suggestion, I'd better start jinxing him in the car on the way up.

"You seem to be nervous. Worried you won't shoot well at the Muster?"
"Are you sure you brought the best rifle and right ammunition?"
