Rangereport may 29th and June 5th

Post by ruhler » Tue Jun 08, 2021 11:14 am

Went to the range last couple of weekends with excellent weather with my Henry AW 44mag and my 10.5" Ruger SBH and some reloads with homecast bullets. Since I had some issues with scoping my Henry the scope went out of adjustments before getting it zeroed. I went back to basic, back to buckhorn sights. Zeroed at 25meters

Bullet: Homecast 15bhn, 265gr NOE sized at .432 RNFP GC bullets loaded with Vithavouri N110,

This is a 7shot group at 25meters with the support of a ordinary caldwell bag

Tried the same ammo a 3shot group to see the pattern and it looks good, a bit high but the sights are set for 240grain bullets

This is from last weekend shot a 4shot group shooting from 50meters kneeling with support on foreend with the scope that was out of adjustments. That flyer was on me, its not Henrys fault :)

That's some fine shooting with the 44 mag. Been a long time since I shot a 44. I do miss it.

That load is a keeper. My experience with Vihtavouri powders is they produce very consistent results. I believe that shows in the groups you shot. Great job.
