More info would be nice!

Just a little shoot I throw together every year...steel at 400, 5something and 750 yards, then a bunch at 1050. Camping available close by, a supper and refreshments provided. Approximately 2 hours east of Edmonton.


What distances?

Same range as always H..........or arrive a day early and can maybe go to the 2600?.....
Have the 45-70 target at 400.....unless you want it somewhere else?


I have to witness some of the stories....

No witnesses!!! ;D

What says at DMAYS stays at Dmays....
Ewe ultra long range. I'd better get dialed in, in advance.

The closest thing I own to a long range rig is my Browning BAR hunting rifle in 300 win mag. I don't know how much I'll be doing with that....BUT....are canons allowed ? :)

2600 sounds like a good time ! Shane should have his 338 improved done by then ! Time for a snipetac spanking him and putting him in his place me thinks !

I am so in on this one. Hurry up damn McMillian!! July is only 10mths. Thats enough time to make a baby, but likely not enough time to make a McMillian!! I still have the .284 though. 1050 is easy. 2600 I will have to try to shoot into space though!

Looking forward to this year Dmay!

Ok set the 45/70 target out to 900 this time and paint 45/70 only on it so we can see our hits. So that's 3 guns to reload for.. I'm leaving here early, maybe sleep in armormans garage wed, thurs, and do day trips to shoot..

No target is safe anymore somewhere between .27 and .375, tears make it difficult to measure. tears of joy

You can have 700 yds.....or 1050.....sorry, nothing in between unless I erect a tower....

Good to see ya out pullin' a trigger Hugh. I been lax down here lately, but so damn windy all the time, and of course I been moving scopes so need some calm to zero properly.

Okay, I'll expect you and Armourman on Friday with hangovers....hopefully its hot and theres lots of set-up work still to do :evil1:

tigrr
05-08-2015, 08:30 AM
That shouldn't be hard to fulfill.
Or we whack some bush out and drop it down that hill!! Ok 1050 is good. Black powder reloading time. I bought some SPG.

Dmay
05-08-2015, 12:06 PM
I bought some SPG.

That's the business!!

Okay, then that's what I'm shooting this year too....(them smokeless powder guns are just a passing fad anyway)......45/70 and the 172/1300....;D

338 Improved is here!! First 25 rounds and it is already printing a half a minute at 300m with 97 grains of Retumbo. As usual Jason did a great job.

No Snipetac spanking here. Besides, last time we where out, you got owned at 1200m by a .284!! No excuses about a shot out barrel. Thats what happens with a overbored whore like a Snipetac. Not all of us need that much powder to hit stuff!

tigrr
05-09-2015, 12:16 AM
Ok smarty SPG bullet lube. You using swed bp or that goex crap they sell by the box full. Just chuckling by the face I know your making reading this!!
I'll be using GOEX this time out. I have a longer drop tube to lighten the powder compression by bullet seating this time. I have to go and reread all the bp stuff it has been so long.
That 172/1300 the cannon?
Setting up a shooting range from the back of the lot to the hill 500 yards behind me. The hill in front is 2000 yards away. I have to wait and see how much road de-activation goes on here this year. Less back road traffic means more lead slinging from my lot.
Hey Edenchef you coming?

Edenchef
05-09-2015, 10:15 AM
If you will allow a reprobate like me, yes, I'm planning on it. Loading up the 45/70's with Swiss Powder. Getting them dialed in.

Sent out some directions on PMs for those that haven't been before. Steve likely has the GPS coordinates if ya need.
Should be ready to commence shooting by 9 or 9:30, but welcome any time. Typically shoot til 4 or so, then retire to the yard for supper and refreshments.

Yesterday morning at 7 am I had no oil pressure in my 6.1 liter diesel. Sat around the ford dealership till 1pm to get it fixed. Low oil pressure sensor. Made it to Wildwood yesterday. Off at 7 am again and home at 7;30 pm. Tired but still smiling. 338 to a mile later this week.

Don't feel bad. Here's why I had to bail out. Had a wee fire that I got a little too close to. It isn't that gruesome, but I'll just post the link.....some people don't like looking at burns. Yea...it hurt like a MF. It's almost healed now and I get to go back to work next week. There shouldn't be too much scarring. Next year, no matter what.

Thanks to everybody for coming out and making it the great time that it always is. Cumulatively (Hey, good word eh?) there are a lot of miles travelled by a lot of great people to bring together a very enjoyable gathering, and I appreciate that.
