Penetration test ( yes Seriouly Al) 180gr pugnose.(Update)

Post by Vaquero » Sun Mar 22, 2020 3:31 pm

Well there's been this box of old books sitting on the deck.
So I took them down by the backyard gongs, 50 yds. from the deck. Walk back got the Rossi put one of the Missouri bullet 180 gr pugnose rds in and let rip.
Nearly 5" and it shed some weight, there was a lot of crumbs in those pages.
I weighed several and they vary a bit, but 184 is a good average before.

My first attempt at a video, no where near the professionalism of forty. ;)
Working with the cell phone, yep I do need a little more time. :lol: but you get the gest.
And yes Al the grass needs cutting but the rain is pretty much never ending. :(
