Did you get rid of that school desk recovered from Hiroshima yet? ;)

ROTFLMAO!!
NO....LOL :lol:
Remember guys, I was shooting head long INTO a 20-30 MPH wind. And when you see my shooting bench
you will understand the fliers.
Update... I tried to upload a video tonight, but that was about the time the debate was starting and You Tube Choked on me. Will try again later.

Went to the BLM property yesterday and shot fifteen handloads of 40.0 gr. Deep curls.
The load was as described above. Very accurate.Thanks Sheepdog. The only negitive is
loading one at a time. Would not feed from magazine. :(

That's odd, what was happening? Was it a mag problem or a COAL problem?

Update.... Hoot, you will be happy to know that we have finally ordered a heavy duty, commercial grade picnic table. The sucker weighes 250 pounds. I special ordered it from Lowes a month ago and should be here this week.
So the little tattered school desk will finally go away.
