    I owned a Mauser98 in 45-70. Kicked like a mule with the trajectory of a rainbow. Purchased at a pawn shop, the build was rough.

    Was hoping you put a substantial amount of the above mentioned ammo through her. If so, would ask for promised photos to include one of your shoulder (:

    Understandable if you didn't shoot that one a lot. Cost of ammo and all......

    I put about 40 rounds through it. I'll have to count my brass, but I think the round count at the end of the day was 42 or 43. I have a nice bruise, but it's not too bad. Really it's only from a few rounds where I didn't have the best shoulder weld. I bought a C2 rower in January and have been using it religiously, so I'm significantly better padded in my shoulder than I used to be.

    It also helped that I mostly shot the lower power stuff. The Buffalo Bore ammo and other hotter stuff I have is physically painful to shoot, so the rounds I have left will last me a long time. At this point I'm pretty confident with the Henry out to 100 yards, but 200 is a stretch unless I'm shooting the "good" stuff. I know it can go out to 1000+, but I just don't have the eyes for it. I'll probably end up getting some Skinner peep sights on there eventually, and call it good.

    A couple of weeks ago, I had mentioned in the "what did you do today thread" I had loaded up a bunch of light loads for my boys' .308 bolt guns (their hunting rifles). I ended up with just over 100 rounds. We loaded up the truck and headed to a friend's house where we were told the Columbine Ground-squirrels were plentiful.

    The loads consisted of about 12 grains of Trail Boss under a 100 grain Hornady "short jacket" bullet.


    I had tested them out at the range the week before our outing. All shot essentially ragged 1 hole groups at 25 yards.

    The rounds are a bit louder than a .22 rimfire, recoil is just a gentle push, and muzzle blast is pretty much non-existent.

    Well, squirrels were plenty plentiful.

    The terrain was mixed woods and pasture, and we did spot and stalk in both. I was carrying my and Rayce's favorite shotgun, a Mossberg 500 (my older boys youth model, but with an adult sized wood stock attached).

    My older son got a shot almost as soon as we closed the gate to the first pasture. He shot at a big one like this, offhand at about 60 yards.


    I was a bit skeptical he would hit it, however, at the crack, the squirrel was flattened. I was curious as to what sort of damage was done by the bullet.

    I won't publish the photo. Suffice it to say, if you wanted to eat ground-squirrel, this one was already gutted.

    The same thing happened over and over again as both boys proceeded to plaster multiple squirrels for about 2 hours, at ranges from 20 feet out to 75 yards, most of them offhand and a couple sitting.

    I got a couple with the shotgun as well. We had to leave as the squirrels were really starting to come out, though.

    A good time was had by all, to say the least !

    Before I hit the range, I hit the LGS to pick up some ammo. So I picked up some ammo, and something new to use it with. 15+1 of 45acp? Yes please.

    I feel like you eye-bawlin' me, dawg!

    For when you REALLY need to be sure that whatever you are shooting at will not survive.

    Due to a stroke a few years back. I have a recoil restriction. I have a CZ model 550 in 9.3x 62(.366 cal.) . Legal for most Afagcan Big Game. My close shooting relatives and friends did not want me shooting it because of the recoil . In Gun Digest magzine, I found a recoil compenstater. looks like steel with 1 inch of rubber attached to two small shock asborbers . Now instead of idiots. cuts , just a gentle push.

    Yes, because we all know that .45ACP will vaporize your innards and rape your soul. So sayeth the Gospel of JMB.

    i'm so sad that i don't get to shoot my 1911 yet.

    .22LR plinking is not the same as sending 200grain hunks of soul raping lead downrange.

    On that same note, you really have not lived until you've sent a few hot 405 and 500 grain loads of 45-70 or something similar toward something you don't terribly mind being in multiple small pieces afterward. I was hoping to pull an office space on our old printer with it this range trip, but the wife vetoed it. As she typically does anytime she sees that look of maniac glee on my face.
