Finally got back to the range

Due to a broken foot and work, I have not been able to get to the range since last August. Finally was able to get out for an hour today and make some smoke with my Pietta New Army Remington. I was using homemade cartridges filled with 19 grains of Goex 3F topped by a .454 round ball.

I was a little rusty but was able to get on paper and my last 6 shots were zeroed in.

All shots were from 25 yards out.

Great to get back to the range. Hopefully I will be back real soon!

Sorry about the foot Paul

Nice you could get out and do some shooting.

Due to a broken foot and work,
Good for you. Well over due for a good time with your New Army don't you think.. I don't shoot C/B pistol myself. But I do enjoy a good day at the range however. Target comment: Nice shooting for being away from practicing for the last 8 months.Your still on paper no doubt_

I appreciate the kind words. Yes, all shots were on paper. She was shooting a little low which is typical for this pistol and load. Took me a while to zero in once I knocked the rust off. Pre-made cartridges worked great - even though they were 9 months old - not a single hang fire. And they really speed up the loading process.

Glad you were able to get back out!

Black Powder: Not because it is easy, but because it is hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win...
