Been on the run lately but found some time to make up some new KHornets with 34gr "Dogtown" pills on top of 12gr mil surp WC820 powder (H110 data) with CCI 400 lighters. Don't know when I'll get the chance but will let you know how they group with pics to back up the windage. Soon I hope.......Attached File  100_0090_1.JPG   34.14KB   10 downloads

Sorry, but no groups to show as I haven't been able to make it out to the range which is 1 hr away but managed a little time at a friend's almond grove. Started with the tried and true KHornet loads of 12gr H110 data milsurp powder under 37gr Calhoon pills. CCI 400 lighters. Drilled 17 almond gourmets before the wife got antsey and wanted to get back to "work". With a bit of sweet talk I convinced her to hold just a few allowing me to try one of the "new arrivals" on one of those "35 lb crop buckets" (according to Hog). One shot-one kill! Caught this little darlin in the shoulder at about 30 deg angle at POA ranged 123yds and turned him over to show exit of the Dog Town pill. This though my Cooper M38 Varmiter (no longer produced) in spite of the fact that I did no sighting prior to the lethal shot. Very unusual for a small capacity cartrige. Very happy at this point and hoping group results off a good solid bench will keep me that way. Pic of Mr. Unlucky..........Attached File  100_0091_2.JPG   49.54KB   10 downloads
