Re: Spotting hits - is it even possible
A local smith was into silhouette 30 years ago. He built many longrange hand rifles. He was discouraged from competative shooting due to the fact of blowing holes through the steel targets, clubs are usually closed minded about things like that. You would have thought this would have ended his handgun adventure...it only encouraged him. He kept building more powerful handguns. He has finally ended his persuit of power due to his age, almost 80, but he did build several 50 cal. blasters that were a hazard to shoot. He based his 50s on the 378/416 Wby and launched a 750gr bullet at hand numbing velocity. It was always a treat to visit his shop and find a sucker I mean a customer at the bench ready to touch one off. Even with a LER scope Bob would remind them to stay back from the scope. After the third reminder, you were on your own. I had one of his XPs in 7mm08. Finally sold it. Just got tired of shearing off mounting screws and cracking stocks. The last of the big ones Bob built were stocked in rear handled aluminum. End of story. If you need someone to operate your pistol while you spot the hit, let me know. Happy Thanksgiving Len.
