  1. I've used rebar when starting out also after reading an article on shooting steel and splash back or splatter I can see the concern for some ranges that use wide berms and more than one stage on a berm because believe it or not splatter can be focused since it is going off at an angle to what ever the lead hits. It's a predictable angle something in the neighborhood of 35 degrees from the surface that's why if you look at the plates that are angled down you'll normally see a trough of lead in front of it parallel to the soggy line or it heads off to the side berm that's why sass recommends the targets placed parallel to the line not facing the shooter if they are not in line with the target the lead will bounce off at a shallower angle this way still hitting the side berm. I've only shot one place that I recall that didn't use berms of any kind. That range was on a private ranch and was part of a section of land owned by the landowner and on match days the livestock was moved to a clear area along with the workers from what I saw.
  2. If some one needs to borrow them I have a pair or roas blue 5,5" barrels and a h&r handi rifle in 38-55 if some one wants to shoot plainsman be sure to contact me so we can work out the details.

      Hi Blackey.

       

      EOT is out of my travel plans, as usual.

       

      The Bunkhouse Boss and I have started our 'house painting' and updating project, which will probably take most of my time and $$$.

       

      Right now, it looks like the only big summer match I will get to is Black Gold in KY., which is only 2 hrs away.

       

      Thanks for asking and I hope you have a good trip.

       

      As for the Marlins, I have also slowed down on their work because of the house work.   Marlins take a lot of time but the Henry .22 does not.   I still plan to work on those when they come to me.

       

      Slick McClade will probably be at EOT and he might be able to help with your Marlin.

       

      Have a great day.
