Yipee !...Our Clubs Woodchop is on Tuesday night & for a comp. that's only held on every 5th Tuesday in a calender month, it's taken quite seriously

I've loaded up some "special" 200gr .40 S&W loads to take down my log, just hope my team mates are as fanatical as me !...LOL

For those not familar with the concept, you have a team of 4 shooters letting rip at a green 7' pine log set a approx 13yds - WHAT A HOOT !

If you've never done/seen it, get some friends together & give it a go. You won't be dissappointed !

Are you insinuating that these loads are hot even byyour standards? Boy, these must be hot loads. Glad I'm a continent and an ocean away

We Won !
In 1min 4secs....
Not exactly an Earth shattering record as the logs were really green & had been left out in the rain for a few days.
Still had lots of FUN !
Next shoot is August the 31st, start sandbaggin' the bedroom (fal) LOL

fal, HS: According to my calculations HS' loads go into low earth ortbit, and there have been unexplained strikes on some shuttle flights. There should be little danger (except on re-entry, but 200gn. bullets should burn up before reaching sea-level... were a bit concerned here in mountain country)

I wonder how the 454 Casull would fare in a Woodchop? - naturally, would be limited to five shots (in the Raging Bull) - no question of using speed loaders as the firing hand is usually (temporarily) crippled for a while after one full cylinder. But come to think of it, if the team is four shooters, the heavier artillery could 'soften up' the log for the faster wimpy guns...

Hasta pronto amigos!
