Bill, Richard, Hank, Jim, Herman (Frank), Dennis, Zach, Gary, others,
I enjoyed meeting all of you. Salt of the Earth people!. However, I was very disappointed about one aspect that apparently all of you have. You shoot too well! I’m going to have to burn lots of powder/bullets just so I can finish in the bottom half of the group/relay, whatever. My wife said that she hoped I had a really good time and asked how my being there will affect what I’ve been doing. I told her that I’d be contributing to a guy’s retirement and that guy’s name is Kyle. See you later this year.
PS I am particularily grateful for all I’ve learned from Richard over the past 15 years and for his very nice 45, Kyle for his excellent 40 cal bullets and history lessons, Hank for his excellent accessories and Jimbob for 2 beautiful 40 cal rifles. I’ll be giving reports on how the 6#13 oz 40 is doing.
Sew it was very nice to meet you and thanks for convincing me that I need a light rifle also 😂 . I look forward to posts on the progression of your testing and shooting of that fine built 40 . Thank you for being a pioneer in this sport and the 40 cal.
Gary, I have no illusions about the light 40 being a “tack” driver. As I showed you, in over 30 mph winds, mostly cross, it kept about a 1” - 1 1/2” 5 shot group at 100 yards (62g H-322/228g AccuMax). It should get somewhat below MOA which will be ok. Jimbob made such a beautiful rifle! 19 years of shooting a 40 and still convinced that “that’s where its at”. 🙂
PS. We certainly know how to stay late and get there early. I really enjoyed meeting you both.
