Range report - Colt Walker

I was able to get to the range this afternoon for a little bit and made a lot of smoke with my Uberti Colt Walker. All shots were from 25 yards, standing (see target below). I used 50 grains of Goex 3F with a special lubed conical made by Kaido Ojaama.

Any variations were due to my changing the aiming point and a little rust -- I have not shot a revolver in about six or seven months.

It was nice to take advantage of the unseasonably mild weather...

....Oxhill Tours is an interesting approach.
