    Lots of fun, out of 20 various sized silhouettes I dropped one shot, off hand shooting, best I’ve done for a while and with a new load, usually use 63grains FFG and a 500 grain projectile!

    every time I want to upload a photo it decides to try playing a game and making it hard for me.....

    Anyway, imagine a paper cartridge for the sharps. that was the photo.
    Use enough gun
