At the range

Post by bluestringer » Sun Jan 12, 2020 11:14 am

Finally got to the range to shoot my Henry BBS. I shot some Blazer Brass 158gr. JHPs, and some handloads using 357 brass, with loads from hot to very mild. All worked fine. The mild loads using 158gr. plated FP bullets and a low dose of HP38 powder were a pleasure to shoot. Quite impressed with this little rifle. It is a sweet shooter.

No, I don't hunt anymore. I will be using it just for fun shooting and possibly some cowboy action matches.
