I'll be there at some point in the next couple weeks.
I have a good load for my 308 I want to test at the longer ranges.

Not sure how I missed this thread. Bummer. This is a busy time of year for me though and as it turned out, I would not have been able to make it anyway.
The 3rd of April is already filled with twice as much stuff as I'll be able to do but there is a chance that the 2nd will be open.
I am getting a new/old .308 bolt gun that I'll need to test by then as well.
The weekend's after the 4-2/3-05 are looking even better.
Mike

I might not be able to make it having company over the weekend

I am going shooting next SUNDAY though Wonder how my NHM-91 will do in a highpower match. I am thinking of trying it out, and be the ONLY one to shoot an AK in a NRA highpower match... Who says that are not sporting arms???

I'm doing my best to make arrangements to get up there. Nobody from W&W has responded to my email about June 11th, so I want to see if I can talk to somebody face to face on Saturday.

I'm 50/50 on getting there Saturday. I'll have a better idea in the next 48hrs.

Maybe...OK almost positive if the moon is in the right phase, the creek don't rise and TEOTWAWKI doesn't happen, and if the gas price doesn't go up too much the weather isn't too bad and the temperature isn't too cold, or too hot, or too humid or too dry and if I get all my stuff packed up and my truck doesn't break down or not start and the grass doesn't start growing too fast or my furnace quit or the electric go off or........

Ok me too!


If my dog lets me go

Yikes! I've been so busy I totally forgot about today. For some reason I didn't get any email notification of the latest posts, either. Sorry, Mike.

The next time I'm free is probably Jamie's meet on June 11.

Well I did not make it until after noon but Geoff and Jamie were there. What fantastic weather, on a Saturday no less with an almost empty range.
There is a pond in the middle-back half of the pistol range and I am not kidding.
I finally got to shoot my new .308 700 LTR and it shoots pretty good. I was surpised to see the 155 gr. Federal Gold Medal Sierra BTHP's shoot better than the 168 gr. but I did shoot all my 168 (all 20 rounds!) while sighting in the rifle.
Thanks to Jamie for manning the spotting scope for me.
I will be working on 200 yards the next time out, maybe even 300 if I am feeling cheeky.
The lads shot my 21C and I am pretty sure they'll both be buying one before the next shoot! We did notice that it takes a manly grip to make sure it feeds reliably but I will not name the person who demonstrated "the wrong way".
As always, a nice day turning money into noise.
Mike

PS. Jamie's 30.06 model 70 is really loud.
