NMLRA Spring shoot
« on: June 17, 2017, 12:33:20 PM »


Best target of the match for me.  Surprised me as I kinda had the jitters.

The dreaded brass frame, historically inaccurate, .44, "it'll self destruct if you load it with more than 3 grains of powder", Pietta.

Being a fan of brassers in their proper context, that picture gave me a big ol' smile!

Dave, bet you are "laughing all the way to the bank" with your junk throw-away brasser! ;)
What sort of loads are you shooting?

18 gr Olde Eyensford 3F, filler, .454 ball.  Used 25 gr at 50 yards but may use lighter charge there as well if I figure out where to hold.
