After takin a year and a half off from such doin's, letting my wrist heal up, the weather was right, the stars were aligned and my aura was green for go so I went shooting. I hit more than I missed, but missed more than I wanted to, both 2 hands and duelist style. All shots were at a couple of cans (they bounce nice), and a steel clanger at 22 yds. The Remie and Rogers & Spencer were flawless, shooting a 452 230g rn over 7.7g of Unique. My newly installed cap rake worked perfectly on the Colt 62' Navy, (20g fff w/lubed wad and 375rb). The NAA Wasp, (22MAG), has tolerances so tight that it binds up after 3 cylinders. But that's OK as I have no intention of getting into a gun fight with it, (fire all five, if I miss or hit and he's not down, toss the gun at the perp and charge with my pocket knife

Nice little arsenal you got there.  I like that R & S.  I gotta get out and shoot real soon.

Thanx guy's.

Dave the R&S has been my favorite shooter since I bought it about 12 years ago.

For some reason I thought you had to use BP in the conversion cylinders.  Shows what I know (or don't know).

I finally made it out to the range today with my Mosin Nagant.  I loaded up a bunch of mild loads and some moderate loads - much better than that surplus ammo in the green can.  Those rounds make my head hurt.  The rounds I loaded are fun to shoot.
