  1. Maybe this should be a separate post/thread. Regarding the winter range black powder single shot match. I have shot this the previous two years, and in each year I shot 10/10 scores to earn 2nd place due to time. The first year the 10/10 took me about 300+ seconds so last year I was determined to not lose to time. No wiping no blow tube, my 10/10 took about 140 seconds only to lose out to the first place of about 130 seconds Almost any shooter could use my rifle-ammo-settings and score 10/10 it is fairly easy. This has become a SPEED event and if that is the intended goal then so-be-it, no need to read on. Personally I would like to have an event that requires more skill versus speed. Yes, the buffalo event is at a greater distance and I do not think there have been 10/10 hits. Suggestions, try targets distances that require different settings, different shooting positions, different target sizes.

  8. Not wanting to hijack other threads. Please share your process to successfully reload Winchester AA Low Noise Low Recoil hulls. Using MEC 9000G press, claybuster pink 3/4 ounce wads Lets say out of 100 reloads only 40 have good crimps AND pass inspection of a 12 ga shell checker. of the 60 most have poor crimps and are not checked at all

  11. The 23rd Annual Roop County Days as hosted by the Battle Born Rangers is now in the books. Held in sunny Fernley, NV the competitors arrived from California, Nevada, Utah, Nebraska and points East (New England). A full third participated in the seldom copied, often ignored, Tom Horn categories. Rifle caliber rifles being used in all 12 main match stages. Smokeless or black powder, single shot or lever action, the rifle and shotgun reports and raucous approval of the challengers could be heard across the range. Additionally, the club found a half dozen of the category winners and five of the top 17, from the SASS Western Regional at Chorro Valley had signed in. Old friendships and rivalries quickly came to the front, but all came with the away with the enjoyable exhilaration of stage by stage challenges as the two day's match continued. The evening between the days found banjo melodies by RW SASS 98351, Will Cooner SASS 59484 on spoons and Sanddab Sam SASS 9632 on washboard, drifting through the camp. https://youtu.be/1weM_Dj7saE After the awards banquet and awards and the well filled raffle tables were cleared, the celebrations around the campfires flowed into the evening. Please find the results at northernnevadacas.com under BBR, see how close first and second place was, and consider joining us next year. Oh and BTW, the banquets food the best is by far the best.

  12. Howdy Uriah, We were all very honored that you choose RCD as one of your stopping points along your cross county trip. The weather was very good, the shooters were great. Give me a few days and we will be posting all the results. Again, many thanks for spending your time with us. -wylie
  13. Then please answer why the ONLY email I was send from SASS was on the DAY OF the drawing. This thread had close to 1,000 views in less than two days. I wonder how many of those who viewed it, just learned about the raffle based on this thread. There is a saying in sales, "Those with complaints, at least have an interest. Good or bad, you never hear from those who do not care." Just maybe sending the email three months ago would have increased the interest and entries. You could have even had someone start a "promotional" thread, months . . . weeks ago. There are many members out there who care. You need to give them a chance.
