O.k. I surrender

I shoot a Buffalo Bill Commemorative in our CLA matches. Heavy and slow is the way to go - for me, I cast a Lyman 170 grain (311041) and 26gr Varget. Mild recoil - and has enough oomph to knock rams down.

Gotta remember that pretty much anything can knock a ram down if it is hit high in the back or the horn, it's the marginal hits you have to take into account - hit it in the pecker, and tell me if 125 grains is enough (hint: It isnt...).

If you ever get the chance - come on down to PALA and join us! The match is this coming Sunday...

Hey shooter - thanks for the invite. Is it near Pala Casino? That's about a two hour drive for me, depending on the location of the range.

Your silhouettes have peckers?

Yep - the rams have peckers, and you can't believe the number of times people hit right in that general area! The ram in my small bore load block is a scale representation:

Lol - drop the rifle just a teeny bit at firing, and thats where the bullet ends up.

The Pala range is on the hillside straight in front of the casino on Henderson Road.
