Well, I think everyone who showed had a good time. I think there were about nine of us all told, unless I didn’t meet some people. Lots of lead went downrange. I shot the half-inch rebar support for the 100 yard steel swingers. Twice. My AR-15 Olofsoned on me because the hammer pin walked loose. (It is disconcerting when your semi-automatic AR-15 rips off a three-round burst.) I guess a loose hammer pin qualifies as a machinegun these days. (Hey, if a shoestring can…) I discovered that my 180 grain .40S&W loads don’t group, they pattern. But my 155 grain handloads work pretty damned well. That’s good, because I was prepared to sell the Witness until I managed to whack the 50 yard plate six times out of ten with the 155s. (I could barely frighten the plate with the 180’s.) I learned that a front-stuffer charcoal-burner actually doesn’t make that much smoke if you load it with Blackhorn 209 powder. I learned that the action on a Swiss K-31 really is very, very smooth.
I’ve got some pictures up for you to peruse.
Got to do this again next year.
