Re: 45 caliber sizes

No 250 in 45 ACP....you can but you lose capacity to little positive effect.
You can load all of them in a gun chambered for .45 Colt. I have done this for a Ruger Vaquero. The one apt to give you a problem is the .451. Use a swaged bullet if you do.

Re: I'm going to try to make Camp Perry this year

It's great that you are planning to go. Note the big change....the NRA National Pistol Championships have been hosted at Camp Perry since 1907 . As of this year, that is no longer the case. The NRA has moved the National Championship to Camp Atterbury, Edinburgh, Indiana. July 1-5, 2020. There will ...

Re: Is the Smith 41 worth the price

The comment about diet sensitivity is right on, as is the comment about the trigger. Not all .22 SV ammo will give optimal, reliable results in any .22 pistol; this is especially true in thoroughbred pistols like the Smith 41. Buy and test a lot of brands. For myself, I have settled on your other op...

Re: Who shoots the M1 Garand regularly?

Yeah, I have a load that works for me in my M1. Now....what do you mean by “works”? Do you mean function reliably or do you mean 10 ring groups at 600 yards? I have a rack grade M1 that I bought at the CMP store at Camp Perry in Ohio. It aint a target rifle but it works just fine. The load is a 147 ...

Dot

Ha. I should have written that those last two scores were done with my standard Bullseye gun and a red dot, not with irons.

shooting

Last month, I took the red dots off all my pistols. Using irons again was and is a - let's say - interesting learning experience. At 65 my eyes are not what they were when I started playing this game. .22/.45/air pistol....all irons. Wish that I could say that I have shot some wonderful scores....th...
