A little reloading

Reloaded 5 boxes of AA trap loads for next Sunday.
11/8 of 7.5 in a Clay Buster shot cup over 17.4gr of Red Dot in AA super sport hulls.

100 of ........223 in new Lapua brass, 55gr Berry's fmjbt over 25.4 of Varget.
200 .357 mag with Win brass and 158gr Hornaday XTP over 13.4gr of Unique.
I had to check the cylinder gap on the S&W 686 after a trip to an indoor range.
The gap fire went to both walls..heh.

About 75 and clear here, nice day.
The bride is holding her own, which is good.

WTF is Trump appointing a open border Obama asshole to head Customs and BP for?
The troops (including a grand nephew) hate the guy. Not good.

Y'all be careful out there.

Reloading boolits an' chot

Sorry 'bout the pic.

I like Berger at around 2550fps.

Gonna try them for the first time.

Some of my Lapua brass has got some miles on them so I looked up Midway and they want $.75 a piece. Are you chitin'me!!!?
Oh well, could be worse, Kali wants us to register and buy a permit for ammo soon.
Gotta stock up on components....sigh.
Y'all be safe.

Clay shooting

Been shooting a lot of trap lately.
Normally, if I'm using Federal 1 1/8, 7 1/2 loads I run around 69 or 70 out of 75.
I drug out the MEC 600 and reloaded four boxes of AA hulls with 17.4 grs of Red Dot and 1 1/8 of 7 1/2 shot. Big difference.
First round last Sunday was 25/25, second was 24/25, third was 24/25 fourth was 23/25 and that was blamed on my having to yell at the speaker on station four three times to get a bird. I know, lousy excuse.
Oh well, I don't feel too bad as I beat a guy on the first round that is a state champ shooting a $$$ Parazzi against me, an old blind geezer shooting a Citori thats seen better days...both of us.

Y'all be safe, shoot straight, hug your kids, and turn off the news for awhile.

New year

Nice and quiet here. That will change soon as as all of the idjits start poppin' caps in the air around midnight.
Raining, but if it stops by morning we will shoot a little trap at Kingsberg tomorrow.

Y'all have a safe celebration or whatever. Remember, there will be a lot of amatures  out on the roads.
