Re: 2013 Long Range Shoots In Townsend Montana

Turns out the 2000 4.7 L engine trashes itself any time the water pump or belt goes south. Lucky for some folks that 2000 was the only year that engine was made.

Think I'll get myself a pickup.

    Next shoot in Townsend is coming up a week from today (June 15th) I look forward to good Montana weather, a good attendance and lots of targets that need worked over. I will get there about 8:00 ~ 8:30 am to set up and paint targets. We should be shooting by 9:30 am.

    I plan to have a Magneto Speed there to test along with my Oehler 35 so if you are wondering about these chrono's this will be a good time to see them in action.

    Also might have one of the Bulls eye Target cameras there to test as well if I get it in time.

    So, who all is planning to come?

    Jeff

    I'm hoping to be there. If I do make it, I'll bring the acoustic Superchrono. I'll also try to get there to help you set up.

    I will be there, looking forward to meeting some other long range shooters and seeing how those chronographs compare.

    I'm a bit iffy on this one. Last one set me back a bit

    Replaced the trashed Durango with a year newer Silverado. Kind of like Jeff's. And nearly as many miles. . .

    Hope you can make it Roy, going to be some guys coming from a ways away too.

    My old Silverado 1500 rolled 200K a while back. I gave her a little attention last week. New oil and filter along with greasing the front end and pulled a very dirty K&N air filter and gave it a proper cleaning. Then took Diane to Virginia City on Saturday and made a loop through Bozeman. Checked the mileage and the ole girl got 20.3. Not bad for a full size 4x4 with 200 K +. Gotta love that 5.3 in these trucks. This is the 3rd one I have taken over 200K and still running strong.

    Looks like it should be a great day for shooting in Townsend tomorrow.
