I just got in from the range. My standard load of 8.0gr Unique/250gr RBFP coated or plain worked superbly, especially with that new Leupold 2-7 shotgun scope. To be honest, I don't believe the 50 yard range is that; seems closer to 40 yards. This was at the pistol range, as we can shoot handgun caliber rifles there. I was able to transfer to the rifle area and set out at 75 yards. Ohh, things opened up a bit, so brought it in to their 50 yard mark[and it IS 50 yards!] and the loads came back. That was the only rifle I shot this morning. My two Henry's are dialed in. Time to fool around with my 30-30 and some cast 165's from Missouri. Try as I might, I CANNOT load pictures. I gotta find a 12 year old kid to show me. It was a good shoot tho.

Back over there today, just a little more 45's.
Same 50 yds, 9.0, 9.5, and 10.0 of unique and those 255's.
Looks like the 9.5's were the best.

Then back to the 180's, 11.2 and 11.4 of 2400 is really shaping up. I shot a few of those lubed 180's also, 11.4 in those may be a hair tighter group.
But I don't have many of those left. lol.

Glad you like those 180 Pugnose/2400. It is a good combo. Al's got a pic or two of my targets I shot today. I only shot the .45. Good shooting Randy.

And because I haven't shot her in a while I drug the ole MX out, dusted it off and loaded a few rounds.
Well I couldn't find my load sheet, but knew it was near max. So I load 5 rds. at max, 5 .2's less, and 5 at .4's less.
75 yds., not much difference between 42.2 and 42.4, but the all shot like 3"high, the first I aimed at the bullseye and hit the top of the paper.
The other two I aimed at the bottom of paper.
Forgot to say, those were 170 gr Sierra Pro Hunters.

Nice job there Randy. MC sells those bullets also lubed. If you think you would rather go that way.

Al, I'll probably just stay with the coated ones, good to know they do though.
As long as I can hit the 100 yd gongs regularly I'll be ok. :lol:
Who knows I might try to get another deer with it at some point.
They should do that well enough.

Nice shootin Tom. ;)

Thanks a ton Al. I need to get back to the range at an honest 50 yards. Have an idea those loads will be fine tho. They seem to be very consistent.
Have to think the new scope helps a bunch. Man, I really like that .45 Colt combo. Thanks again Al. Much appreciated.
