Hello, everyone. Had a good time shooting this morning, always wondering if we were about to get drowned out, as rain clouds were everywhere else...but it went well.
LAGS brought out a lot of military surplus rifles with home made scope mounts on them ,all scout sighted. I wish more pictures had turned out better - the K98 cavalry Carbine and the Mosin M44 looked especially awesome.
Here is LAGS shooting the Finn 91/30 Mosin Nagant rifle, at 50, then yards.

Results from the 1891 and the K98.

LAGS was really doing some nice work out there, and it just kept getting better, even as the wind started picking up serious speed.

As for me, I was just experimenting with some loads in my 98 year old 1916 Spanish Mauser, and some experimental loads in the P-09...truly firearms worlds apart.

Image

The cast bullet 8mm loads worked quite well, and I'll be building more of them, using the Reloder 7 Powder - good stuff!

This picture is from a "mad minute" shoot, just flinging 125 grain conicals downrange at 10 yards, and still they went darn near exactly right. Full mag, so that's 20 holes right there. :)

Brass is tumbling and I will be loading this afternoon. Always love it when a plan comes together! :D

Looks like a great day at the range. And really great to see Larry after a while.... he sure looks great. :text-bravo:

Unfortunately, I haven't been to a range since last two years, almost. I wonder I still remember how to shoot a gun :think:

So nice seeing the duo after a long time. I loved the M44 and P09.
And how is the teacher? We miss him. Cheers

That does seem like a fun day at the range. But where is thugly?
I just had a session of rifle shooting with .22LR and i actually like this stuff. I hope to shoot some of the bigger calibres in the very near future. Good to know you both are doing good with the shooting.
