Re: My First Attempt Past 200yds

I'm impressed, whats the twist rate on that rifle? Are you shooting them for fur?

The twist rate is 1:11. I will attempt to salvage the fur, as I have a skinner who will process and ship them to the canadian fur auction (along with any coyotes I get in the farmland or elsewhere) for a portion of the proceeds. I am hoping it will bring a cost-covering profit, but regardless I plan to shoot as many as I am able.

Good idea - in time I will be doing exactly that, however in the short term I needed to ensure a consistent load for fall rifle hunting (I am now consumed with archery for the next 6 weeks).
