Now the way I remember it is you arrived on a golf cart and I was in a brand spanking new F-150 with a chaffuer :lol: Yes I can see it as plain as day now. Oh BTW does your foot still bother you :huh: If anyone wants to know about the story of the tater ............I will explain in person only $5.00 donated to my favorite charity.

 

I think Ringo made a bundle on that story and I received no royalities either. I need a new manager that's it.

Can't wait, boys and girls!!

Cherokee Charlie has introduced a new side match at Ambush....shooting table making. So far, me and AQ are tied for first place!

 

All it takes to get entered is build a shooting table for CC's .22 sidematch....who else wants to join in :P :P :P

Was doing some reloading this afternoon when I discovered I'd had a tremendous brain fart. I had two fifty round trays of prepped brass - primed, sized, case mouth belled - the works. I hand-dip my BP, so I took a tray and loaded up. I don't have to worry about double charging a case, as I use a full case load and compress the bullet on top of the BP and put a healthy crimp on the round to make sure I maintain consistent OAL.

 

Finished with the first tray and started on the second and ten rounds in, I dropped a case and, lo and behold, I didn't spill any BP! I had neglected to dip any BP in the second tray! Pulled all ten rounds, dipped all fifty cases and then finished up loading the cases. I wasn't distracted - no TV on, no stereo playing, no kids running around my feet, and no cell phone to bother me.

 

I just wasn't paying attention to what I was doing!

 

Reload safely, Pards!

Glad you caught that, BR. I got a couple of Oops awards a few years ago when I had a powder measure that would occasionally fail to drop a measure of powder when loading .45 Colt. It caused my son to have a couple of squib loads.

 

I ended up pulling and checking right at 400 rounds. I found about a half dozen without powder.

I can understand your feelings. Above all, "Ambush" means more then just another shooting match, annual, or state match. Its a reunion of partners and families we become. MT

This will be my first Ambush. I've heard so many good things about this shoot, can't wait to get there. Looking forward to meeting all

the Ambush pards. See ya in a few days.

 

Driving my RV to the match. What is the best way in (road conditions)? Will be coming north on 59. Is it better to come in from South or

go on up 65 and come in from the north. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

I've got a Cowboy match and a Wild Bunch match this weekend and then I start packing for Ambush. Ammo has been losded for months and the dutch ovens are clean and ready to load. I even got to the range last weekend to practice with the .22 pistols. I hope the weather cooperates like the last 2 years.

Howdy Big Daddy Jenks,

 

Come up 59 to Birmingham and hit I-65 there. Go north to 565 East, towards and through Huntsville, AL. That will run into US Hwy 72. Continue east on Hwy 72 into Jackson County, AL, and watch for the Cathedral Cavern State Park signs...follow them. You'll turn to the right off of US Hwy 72 onto on Jackson County Road 63. Go approximately three miles and turn east on Cavern Cove Road. Go approximately 0.2 miles and turn left onto Ambush Trail. This is the driveway to the range. If you get to Kennamer Cove Trading Post, or the entrance to Cathedral Cavern State Park, you've gone just a mite too far. I'll send you a PM with my cell phone number in case you need it.

 

We'll see ya there!

I have got some reloading to do! I just counted 27 stages of shooting, between the black powder, wild bunch, .22 shoot and the main match! Oh yeah I forgot to add for the night shoots and the other side matches. What do you think will 5000 rounds cover it? :wacko:
