  1. Past hour
  2. Mount Laguna, San Diego, got some snow Thursday night. Today, here in Santa Rosa, Sonoma County it's 55 degrees at 10 a.m. and we are getting a light rain. Average for this date is 78. Today we might break 60. Record high is 98.
  3. I didn’t know if side match is allowed to mod that rule like they do to higher fps for range. That’s why i said “I wouldn’t think so.” Just looking for options.
  4. You know, I pointed that out to CHJ a couple of years ago. "You'll have that" he explained to me in true Ponderosa Pines fashion.
  5. No. Have you read the shooters handbook at all? https://www.sassnet.com/Downloads/Shooters Handbook Vers 23.2 MASTER COPY.pdf OLG
  6. Are jacketed rounds allowed for long range? I wouldn’t think so but it would open up what I can get from a store.

  8. Does not mount to the stock. Mounts to the rear of the rec'r tang. If 100 yds is all-Then load up some .357 mag cases with some 158gn lead bullets pushing them to around 1400-1500fps, will get'er done. Try your barrel sights first........ OLG
  9. Pat raises his glass for a toast. “Here’s to hoping for sunny days and beautiful weather for your vacation, Big Sage.” Beautiful photos. Keep ‘em coming...
  10. I’ll have fun no matter what. So I’m good there . I have no idea what to expect. Match description so far is “long range match”. Not sure if it’s pistol caliber or not. I assumed not. I do know the max distance at the range is 100 yards (they’re working on a longer range but it’s not done) so I was going for worst case. I hope it’s the multi distance thing described. I’d do alright for half of it at least haha. I should note... I don’t load yet. I have someone who may let me use their loader if I have a specific load but not sure they can before the match. I know what I have is terrible at 100 yards so my easiest option is store bought ammo. I had some 158 gr HSM cowboy rounds left over that I tried. They weren’t much better than the 125 gr cowboy rounds I use. Anything from Sportsman’s WH they’d recommend?
  11. Today

  14. Right up front, I am a newbie at hand loads. My method of learning is Immersion. I study, dig, build spread sheets, work the math and ask questions of those more knowledgeable than me. The intent is having a good understanding of WHY I want a starting point for my loads. I know from long experience that if I introduce my wife to the game, with a hot load, she will shy away forever. This is the same concept as the idiot who takes his wife to the top of a Black Diamond run on her first outing at snow skiing. As I understand it right now, there are three states: CUP < BHN, CUP = BHN and CUP > BHN CUP < BHN An extreme example would be as Bull Skinner notes above.. 8400 CUP with a BHN=22 bullet. There is not enough pressure to obturate the hard lead, so it leaks pressure. No barrel leading because the bullet is too hard for the pressure. CUP = BHN Wedded bliss. Pressure is matched to hardness for correct obturation and no leading. CUP > BHN Too much pressure for too-soft lead. Causes barrel leading. Your Red Dot is a couple points higher on the fast burning scale than Clays. I am very much interested in the Missouri Bullets 125gr RNFP in my Vaqueros and 1894CB. There is a 3.5gr Clays load where BHN=12, CUP=16,900 that exactly matches this bullet. This will be my starting point.
