Shooting chips in the Rock Pit
« on: January 13, 2018, 05:03:33 PM »
FINALLY.... got to go shoot today!!

Winter Break at the University is OVER - I am among the retired again!  So I packed things in the truck and headed to the Rock Pit...

Normally this time of year I would not be able to get to the pit, I would be snowed out! But this is one of those years and I was able to get in pretty easily.

I just need to shoot!  I grabbed the ULite and decided to shoot the new Lehigh .451x230CF Copper bullet.  For me this is my go to deer bullet... it has proven to be really accurate and deadly.

At the pit, I was really surprised, one of the groups before me had set up broken clay pigeon chips in the snow at 100 yards.  I was going to setup a bunch of new birds but the chips were there and would serve as a better challenge.

When it come down to it really wasn't really much of a challenge - load and shoot.  Really made me feel good to dispatch the various chips on the wall.

Took some pics of the outing - hope they are visible enough to make the point.

I was shooting 120 gr. (volume) of BH with the Lehigh from a Knight Ultra Lite with a Redfield  Revenge with a ACCU Ranger Reticule.

Keep shooting muzzleloaders - They are a blast!!

It was a ton of fun and relaxing.... I do not hunt with a center fire anymore so during regular rifle I use a scoped ML...  During ML the scope comes off and a peep goes on..



But to tell you the truth I could have come very close to do the same thing with the peep sight also..

Keep shooting muzzleloaders - They are a blast!!

They sell little clip hangers that you can hang an individual clay from for target practice - pretty fun stuff
