Re: VELOCITY LOSS QUESTION - FOR FUN

Denny just about nailed-it - they got 2382 fps for a ten-shot average with the 14 inch barrel, and accuracy of very near one inch at 100 yards.
I guess this information is very useful if you ever get the urge to shoot 168 match bullets at .30-30 velocity [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Brent, not really a great back-up gun if one of those big furry Alaskan teddy-bears with the big toe-nails decides to have you for lunch - is it! I would take a bowling-ball cannon anyday, but only if you would pack it for me [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] You Alaskans do it right, those pictures of your New Years Day Shoot are the best!
(I really need to experience the firing of one of those babies! Hell, I would even set up my 35P's to do some downrange velocities, and make up a 1000-pound block of Poor Man's Ballistic Gel (mud) to shoot into. Not sure if 1000 pounds would be enough to stop one of those suckers!)

Re: VELOCITY LOSS QUESTION - FOR FUN

I'm really going to have to check this thing out closer now! I'll let you know what dads load was and how it does over the "Oehler" this time.

I can take a vidio of the bowling ball shootin but there's no sound on my little camera, just wouldn't be right without sound effects. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

I'll stick to the "low brush grizzlies" (squirrels) with the Striker for now. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] They still see it as a "big bore". [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Poor mans ballistic gel!! Too funny!
