I had my spy, James out with you and the big gun (small world aye), what sort of steel are you shooting?, it left some meaty craters in it thats for sure.

    Hi Steve, sure is a small world, he said he knew you yesterday.

    The steel is bloodly thick!! theyre old steel weights, with RE bar welded to a tube on top which the chain goes through, they worked awsome! the old system that we had @ 600 yrds it took about 4 shots then fell apart, so thats being converted to the new system for next weekends pasting!

    The rifle shot well but I didnt, lets just say it wasnt ideal conditions to be shooting in! I had rather large DOH!!! moment too, impact went to the left sooo, I moved to the left Whys it not hitting the gong? UMMMM!
    Im still human!!

    Regards 300WSMAD
