Re: 3/8" and 1/2" steel gongs

Ian,

I welded some 1/2" nuts to the back of my plates and used tie wire at first but have some chain and carabeaners on them now so I can bring them home at night.

I been pretty busy lately, but I managed to get out sunday to shoot my brothers LAR Grizzly 50 BMG with some increadible amazement too.

We shot about fifty rounds up at some rocks in the cliffs about 1000-1200 yards away.

The thing just shoots FLAT, WOW!! Point and shoot practically. We were shooting in about 30mph crosswind too. Bullets just impacted a couple moa two the right.

The thing was super accurate from what I could tell. Recoil was about like an '06 with the new brake they're using now.

We shot from a bipod off my tailgate on the 6-wheeler while squating or kneeling on the ground.

We got 300rds of ammo for $350. so it'll last a couple more weeks anyway. I can't shoot my 416wby for that price!

Oh ya Ian, where did you get your Nikon Tactical at?

I'm picking up my new NXS 5.5-22 after work tomarrow if all goes well.
