Did you shoot anything today ?

Thread starter #721
I cant decide if I want a dot on it or not, thinking about keeping it simple. It throws up well like a nice fitted shotgun and both my son and I were poppin cans at 25 yards no problem.


I made the mistake of shooting one.

Big mistake. :rofl:

It flung a cravin'. (y)(y)(y)(y)
Yes @Dub that is her...she comes in at 12.8#...a fat bottom gurl

All of these are 5 shot groups and she gets hot quick

She really liked the 38gr of H380 under 50gr Balistic Tips...I let one of the 5 get away from me. I think it is really good considering what all was going on. This ladder was in FC brass and all of it had the shoulders pushed back to -.002. After checking my Mo's Gauge with the Go-Gauge we used for the chamber it is off +.002. So all of those rounds had unnecessary headspace .004 and allowed the primers to back out. The Lab Radar was acting up as well and for some odd reason I neglected to write down the speeds it did show for the 50gr.

She absolutely loved the 60gr Ballistic Tip on the H380

36gr a little erratic but I got 2 in the same hole. These were all in Hornady brass and the shoulders were set at .000


36.5gr let one of those get away from me too...average speed of the ones it picked up 3271fps


These got a little hot during this sequence...didn't allow for enough cool down time. 2 of the 5 caught at the top of bolt lift just a tad and the case stretched .002. I am going to back this one down .2gr and load a string and play with seating depth maybe. These ran 3340fps.


we are already looking at 69gr loads to see if it will shoot them. H100V and Staball show velocities way over what these ran for the 69gr bullet. I don't think they will stabilize but with that much additional velocity they just might. Can't hurt to try 5 :cool:
38.0 grains is how it got the name h380 in thshooting. With 52bthp i think.

Nice shootin.
