Sunday Family Shoot 07/19/15

Sunday shooting in the back yard, with our new, improved backstop.  Last week I experimented with Fast Draw Cartridges, which are .45 Colt blank brass, a standard primer, 3.0 grains of Hodgdon's Triple Seven, and a wax bullet.  The small charge of black powder gives smoke for the spectators and makes the match more visually appealing.

The match cartridges aren't necessary, but as an old-time reloader I had what I needed to make them and decided to put some together.

Here, in a short video, we have Matt shooting against Zachary.

Milady and I will practice some this week, then start packing for the shoot in Odessa next weekend.  We'll leave here Thursday morning early, and be ready to shoot on Friday morning.

Coning together rather nicely! And under a second is GOOD!
