    Ha ha ha ha my wife has been conditioning me by having me wheelbarrowing gabion rocks all over the property and carefully placing them out. I should be good for up to 1050 fps. If it hurts too much I could tuck the butt under my arm like a Nancy boy.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    So it looks like maca 49 is bringing a removal van full of interesting things. Might as well leave mine at home and use his (-:

    What is the cartridge with shoulder halfway down the length ? I know of at least one Cape gun being used next weekend

    Oh, and @Rushy, I ran the 300gr projectiles in the 45/70 over a chrono last week. Seems I underestimated the velocity of my current load a bit, you might want to get a couple of preparatory shoulder massages before heading down
    The shorter, small dia is a #2 musket back powder, the long thin one is a 450/400 nitro
    Boom, cough,cough,cough

    I'm just a bit worried about your snoring Rushy.

    What nights are everyone planning on staying?
    Overkill is still dead.

    Friday night and Saturday night for me. The shed will be rocking to the dulcet sounds of Rushy at rest.
