    Default Finally some range time

    Finally able to walk good enough to feel confident to hit the range. Wasn't sure how bad it would be with snow so i opted to just shoot at 50yds but also want to shoot some rifle. decided to try some 7.7 cast loads that i loaded using reformed .270 cases to make sure they would shoot fine and not split or anything. Seemed to work great in every aspect. Also brought a couple of revolvers in .357 and .44 mag being i didn't want to chase brass through the snow. Felt good to get out! Might try to go Friday too.

    Sounds like your time off has not affected your shooting.
    Heard that nice clink every time to hit the target.
    Good shootin'
    Glad your back in the saddle

    Well 50yds with a rifle isnt much of a challenge. With the .38's and .357's i was averaging 4 sometimes 5 and i think only once i rang all 6 with about 100 rounds i fired. With the .44 i did piss poor and only hit it a few times out of 50 or so. I'll have to bring that back out and shoot closer to see where I'm hitting. Don't know if it was me, or the sights got moved or it just didn't like the load.

    Glad you were able to get some range time! You will work your accuracy back with renewed practice. I am needing some range time myself, but we are knee deep in snow, and then some. Temps are up to freezing though, so I am hopeful to get in some rimfire practice, if nothing else in the near future.
    Knowing when and how...

    Just got out some ammo and will probably head out tomorrow too as it likes like it will be mostly sunny and break over 30 again.

    Do or do not, there is no try.

    I'm getting out saturday. Picking up a new to me Sears and Roebuck single shot .22 at the same time. Get to sight in my .224 Valkyrie as well.
    Meeting up with a guy from another forum I go on to pick up the rifle and spend the afternoon shooting. He could use the therapy anyway.
