I am all ready for the first shoot this weekend, hope the weather holds. 40-70 Ballard pp and 32-40, both blackpowder loads.


The weather was nasty saturday and we did do alot of shooting, but was really having trouble seeing the sights/targets. couldn't see staying for the match, so we called it a day. i guess its time to get some new glasses asap!

Going to leave here as soon as I can get my stuff all loaded up, might be a bit and going to stay up there, and leave Sunday after the shoot, probably.

It was very nice to meet you.

As you well know the practice before the shoot was very cold and windy, but still fun, though challenging conditions.

And Sunday it was very wet and miserable conditions also.

This was my first official BPCR shoot, so now I'm official, with lots of work ahead of me to move up.

It was great to meet you too and put a face to the name. This was my first official shoot as well, but chose to back out and get the eyes figured out. made an appointment today. saturday really for me was a very good day. i had some different bullet configurations to try out for hunting and they all worked very well so i can at least move on from that for the rest of the year. we shot several times last year and things went good, but the eyes must have slipped a little over the winter. i'll get everything I shot loaded and be ready for the May shoot, but I may have to use my old glasses, we'll see I guess.

Hope you get the eyes figured out, the rain was tough for me to see targets on Sunday, just sort of misting in your face at times, from the breeze.

yep, and that mist is hard on pp bullets, it makes them soft and feeding problems happen. All you can do is keep the box closed and keep the rounds you need in your pocket. That was one of the things I tried on Saturday, was shooting some with Rooster Jacket on them and they fed and shot well. What rifle are you shooting?
