Went in the early afternoon, when temps had climbed towards 108, and I hoped 99% of shooters had retreated to the safety of the reloading room.
It worked.

Image

OK, it was warm - I soaked through the bandanna I was wearing under my Berrys hat. But it was a good one right from the get go, as someone kind left behind a ton of 9mm brass and reloadable shotgun shells!

But, back to the shooting. All I was really out to do was chrono some rounds with these two fine rifles.

Image

That's the Spanish 1916 Mauser rebarreled to 8mm Mauser, and, of course, my wonderful CZ 527M/CSR.

Since I was using the chrono, I decided to use the stool and rest, so as to avoid shooting the machine AGAIN....

Image

Got some OK results, testing some loads in 8mm with a big 216 grain bullet and Green Dot powder.

Image

Image

Did OK with the 527M/CSR, but the sweat was running freely...:)

Image

Gave me ideas of where to go, and as always, was nice and relaxing... :)

Nice report of a sweaty-yet-productive range visit :)

Chrony says 8mm cast loads with Green Dot are slow....the 12 grain ones went rumbling downrange at 1311 FPS. That last 7.62x39mm load, though, was zipping right along for a cast bullet load at almost 1900 FPS.
