Warm weather!
« on: March 31, 2020, 03:03:02 pm »
Finally getting some warm weather, so I cast a few hundred 220 grain Krag bullets.  Now it just needs to dry out a bit so I can start practicing with them!

Can't think of anyone who needs "practice" less than you Ned!

I have to cast some Krag bullets, also.
Micah might be using the new-to-me '03 for the Expansion match.

Cast about 135 Lee 500 .459 3R today and tumble lubed them.  Probably looking at 3 more days of tumble lubing.  Plan to shoot them out of a .458 Socom at approx 1230ish FPS.  They shoot good at 100 from my 88 Trapdoor (BP) but can't seem to hit the target at 200 so will stick to the 405 HB for that rifle.

Finally got to play a little on the range!  Shot a '76 Winchester, a '95 Winchester, and an '03 Springfield.  Went fifteen for fifteen at the 100!  Woo hoo!  Back in action!  (There was definitely some luck involved, but I feel much better now!)
