'Nuther range report

Got a hunting load for Thumper! Hornsurgeon's (CB board) RL7 load did nicely again last night. Was getting a little late and was a bit tired of shooting but fired 10 quick ones anyway. Youngster shooting with his family on the next bench really enjoyed the fireballs @ sunset. The high hit was a called flier, guy on the other end of the bench touched one off @ the wrong millisecond. I picked up a flinch and was pretty sure I tossed 3 but only two were out much. 7 out of 10 well inside 2" is as good as I was going to shoot yesterday; this load's going hunting! .35 and .32 loads are getting close, peep helped on the 32 but it's still pretty awful. May be able to load up some suitable .35 loads before my next hunting trip. These RD boolits like to go fast, just need to pour it on and let'em rip. 32 and 35 loads are a bit conservative, will step them up and slip on the wimp pad.
All three rifles cleaned up nicely. I think I like these Ranch Dog GC boolits.
