I just finished preparing for the range on wednesday !
First off I got my Ruger #1B's in 6mm REM and 257 Bob out of the safe so I can finally check the scope settings . Last time I picked up my 270 and 280 by mistake .
Loaded 20 rounds for the Ruger #1B 25-06 with the Hornady 117 SST and IMR4350 . Wanna make sure the scope settings for that one is okay also .
I had a 25 round box of the older Remington 12 gauge 2 3/4" Foster Slugs (look to be late 60's early 70's) so I put 4 of them in a plastic bag and I'll try my Philadelphia Fox Sterlingworth at 25 and 50 yards .
If the forend comes back for my LC Smith 10 gauge I'll cart that one out to try the new firing pin and some more buckshot patterns at 25 yards . Have 3 loaded with 12 pellets of 00 Buck , 2 loaded with 16 pellets of #1 Buck and 2 loaded with 32 pellets of #4 Buck .
Finally the Ramshot X-Terminator powder a friend gave me got loaded tonight in cast bullet loads for one of my 444's !
Loaded 3 rounds of each of the following ,
RD 432-240GC with 54.4 grains COL 2.500"
RD 432-265GC with 51.5 grains COL 2.488"
RD 432-300GC with 49.1 grains COL 2.522"
MM/RD 432-325GC with 47.1 grains COL 2.503"
RD 432-350GC with 44.8 grains COL 2.532"
NOE/RD 432-350GC HP with 44.8 grains COL 2.575"
BRP/RD 432-375GC with 42.6 grains COL 2.528"
BRP/RD 432-375GC HP with 42.6 grains COL 2.522"
My plan is to shoot 3 shot groups at 50 yards with all the above and Chronograph at the same time . If the weather cooperates I should be at the range set up and ready to go at 07:45 wednesday !
