Primers & power - yahoo

I found a new (to me) little gun shop on a side street, in a tiny little town, in central PA. Found Federal & CCI BR primers and a recently arrived inventory of IMR powder.

I felt like a kid in a candy store. Bought all kinds of supplies. They were also affiliated with a local sportsman club with a 300yd range. 30 concrete benches and facilities for several different shooting disciplines. Cost - $30/yr, so I joined the club even though I live out of state and will shoot there only on rare occasions.

Continued my travels to a friends farm and slapped a few groundhogs just for the he__ of it. Killed the little buggers out to 175yds with the tiny 17HMR. I don't take shots beyond 200 with the HMR; not because I can't make reliable hits but because the terminal performance is lacking on the fat PA hogs.

Sometimes things just go your way!

The store was in Mifflin and the range was in Mainville. They are both within 3-5mi of route 80.

Figured it was somewhere around there.
Next time you're through, check out Mifflin County Sportsmans Association Range about 8 miles from the store.
Beautiful range with boards out to 500 yards and a board at 1000.
