More pumpkin plinkin' with the Henry BBS 44

Post by fortyshooter » Sat Jan 11, 2020 5:06 pm

Neighbor gave me a box full of these little 4 inch pumpkins and I thought they would make an interesting target.
So set up a board with 4 nails sticking up to anchor them down and back about 50 ft. with the .44 BBS Carbine and shooting these
hot Underwood 180 gr. XTP rounds I 've had for several years.
Man the Henry loves them and shoots them like a laser being able to hit pieces of pumpkin and boy do they pack a punch
traveling probably 1800 FPS out the rifle! What a pumpkin smasher!! :lol: https://youtu.be/2ckzPZCuAbE

I picked up a box of the same Hornady 180 gr. bullets today and will load up a batch using 24-25 gr. of 2400 to get close to same
ballistics as the Underwood. You guys might try the same if you haven't already.

I'm sure they would give a great blast! Almost need one of those face shields from the small chunks of pumpkin flying around. :lol:
