I did get the Hepburn out to the range, but only got a chance to zero it before the weather turned sour.  The wind got ugly and it started to rain off and on which is not good weather for shooting groups!  I was zeroing at 50 yards to start and then planned to take it to 100 and test 3 different loads; it's looking promising so far.  If the weather improves this week I'll try to get out again ...

I may have passed my "Best Before" date, but I haven't quite reached my "Expiry" date yet ...

Tried again today, but didn't even get the Hepburn out of the gun case once I got up to our club.  Range conditions were terrible up there compared to when I left home.  Steady drizzle of rain and a very heavy fog that obscured the target holders past about 50 yards most of the time.  The wind kept blowing the fog in and out, but never cleared it comletely.  I'll try again another day next week if the weather improves ...
