  1. It was a pleasure meeting you on Sunday. Ya shot well. Matamoras will be starting up in April, see you then. Gringo
  2. The issue you’ll have at 500 will be the light bullet and wind. The 45/70 will allow you more tolerance at ranges over 300. Ymmv Gringo
  3. Tenhunter, stop by Sunday. Great shoot with a great crew. Check out the website listed above and come out. Bring your eye and ear protection. Gringo
  4. Cholla, shooting positions vary by match. I’ve shot them seated at a table, standing using sticks, seated on the ground using sticks, prone w sticks and off hand. Basically, you play the hand you’re dealt. Anyway, it’s 3 to 10 shots usually so you won’t be in that position very long. Gringo
  5. Ron, just from my experience, don’t crimp. I don’t like having the case affect bullet flight. Star line cases will have slightly less case volume compared to Winchester cases. As for fouling control, the two methods most used by competitors is 1. Wet swab between each shot or using a blow tube between each shot. For nra matches that’s fine since you have 30 minutes to make your 10-14 shots. In a sass side match it’s more speed based. I can fire 5+ shots with no fouling control and have not seen any accuracy issues. The difference is it’s sass targets vs x ring in nra matches. Ymmv Gringo
  6. Howdy, the bullet heads you’ve selected are good for 200 yards and 300 if the wind isn’t bad. I prefer a 525 grain money bullet, spg lube, 62 grains of Swiss 1.5 and Winchester cases. I load powder by weight not volume as the load data I strive for is very specific. I use a drop tube and custom compression die to fit the powder and achieve the results I’m looking for. There is a lot of trial and error that goes into accurate loads. Every rifle will like different combos. Enjoy the fun Gringo
  7. Howdy Croc, don’t shoot your eye out. Lol, have fun and hit the targets Gringo
  8. Hey John Boy, you gave me a good laugh this morning! hope you’re feeling better and that you’ll be able to attend Purgatory in October see ya soon Gringo
  9. Buckshot, buy what you like. Both are great but I prefer the look of shotgun chaps. I bought the light weight leather, only good for cowboy action not riding. The leather is so light that I don’t even realize I’m wearing them. They easy to get on and off with the metal clips. YMMV Gringo
  10. Dang, I thought we’d be discussing gin vs vodka. Gringo
  11. Well, as Creeker stated this is very subjective. At the end of the day every one of us is responsible for their own happiness. That being said, I enjoy a mix of target distances as in some matches are up close and some further back. I enjoy movement and the ability to shoot a flexible stage design. At the end of the day if I wasn’t entertained I would move on. The past 10 years have been a blast and the pards I’ve met have made this game a part of my life. One month till Hellava Ruckus! Gringo
