    This is getting better and better; putting together a group of like minded Montana guys. We are all Montana minded when we love the freedom of the wide open spaces.

    I am impressed by the Appleseed effort. Thanks glocker21 for stepping up for Montana. I instructed indoor smallbore in college at MSU Bozeman and also have some experience instructing international smallbore three position shooting. I like the idea of Americans focusing on marksmanship rather than just "firepower". With all of the technical refinements in equipment we have today, 500 yds. is still a heck of a challenge and a worthy goal for anybody.

    I encourage you all to check out Appleseed Project at Appleseed Project Home

    Frank

    unlike most other guys here, i was actually in butte mt. back in the late 70s.
    your right, you cant help notice some mining has gone on there.
    back then 30x378s were only owned by a few fools wanting more horsepower out of a 30 caliber.
    problem was getting hold of some of the very few powders that made it work.
    h570 was a surplus powder that was theee powder to use.
    those that had it wouldnt part with it, and some i knew had a bunch.
    id heard some of the gun shops out west had some, and i went looking for it.
    i did find a few 1# cans in butte, and the guy also sold me a 20# keg of h870 for $1.50 a pound.
    there was one store out there called buttreys that had 4 cans on the shelf at a whopping $2.69 a pound.
    the guy was all smiles when i bought all of them. i saved some of those cans with the price tag still on them.
    you didnt mention caliber of the model 70, so i assume it was an 06.
    the kv weaver was a very early varieable 2 to 5 power. my father had a couple of them.
    your shot is pretty typical of what took place back in the 50s and 60s.
    yours ended well but frankly many didnt.

    i was a smallbore shooter in the 50s, we shot 4 position but i would have gladly given up the kneeling part.
    my younger sister became national junior girls champ.
    i quit after that as i couldnt stand having her beat me.

    this is a very informative site, you will enjoy it and gain some new knowledge.
