 Another trip to the range today.Had my Winchester Model 55 .30 WCF,a Winchester Model 64 Deer Rifle 30-30 and a Winchester Model 1886 45-70.Buddy had an Australian target rifle 308 and a Browning A Bolt 223 with a target barrel.

 

 Shooting free hand at 50 yards with iron sights ,put the six cartridges I fired from the 45-70 all in an eight inch circle,with one of them in the  two inch bullseye.With the 36 cartridges I fired from the two 30-30 rifles ,put thirty of them in the eight inch circle with two of them in the two inch bullseye.The other six were in the twelve inch circle.

 

  No John Wayne shooting,but for myself pretty good.Smile

 Another afternoon at the range.Today was a big bore day for me.Had a Model 1895 405,Model 1886 45-70 and Model 1886 50-110.Buddy had an Austrian Mauser 8 MM,Steyr straight pull 8MM  and a single shot Martini Henry 22.

 Did well with the 405 and 45-70 ,with 11 shots out of the 405 , put 10 in the 8 inch circle ,with one of those in the two inch bullseye and the other shot fired in the 12 inch circle.With 14 shots out of the 45-70, 12 were in the 8 inch circle with two of those in the two inch bullseye,while the other two shots were in the 12 inch circle.Not prefect,but pretty good for me.Smile

  Could not say I did well at all with the 50-110.Just could not seem to shoot it well at all.Perhaps the longer heavier  26 inch barrel  had something to do with that?Not sure.The 405 had a 24 inch barrel and the 45-70 a 22 inch barrel.

  Shots were taken free hand at 50 yards.
