    The 2” barrels are what go to the woods. When I “develop” a snake load, I test it on a cardboard tray on the ground. I usually test at 3, 4, and yards. My usual stack is powder, dryer sheet wad, shot, index card wad, nail polish sealant, crimp.

    After making all those frogs mad this weekend, I wanted to see how these penetrated. BTW, this was a .38/357 CCI Shotshell at about 5-6 feet. I don’t like CCI because I’ve had too many with extra thick rims.

    Thats pretty good penetration. Instead of a dryer sheet as a wad try cutting a piece of the outer cardboard cover from a box of primers. You may also have to increase your charge with the short barrel. You could be loosing up to 200fps with the 2" less of barrel length.

    If I can get some time tomorrow I'll load up a few and try them in my 2" Taurus and see if I can find what it likes.

    Youngest Grandson &I shot informal 22lr silloutte shoot this morning. He used his Savage CUB single shot, I shot my Savage FV bull barrel. Grandson was first time, he did ok & had good time. :).
    I only shot couple relays so I could coach him.
    My last relay was turkey at? 35m I think. I shot first string clean with no misses;all guys are ooh &aahing,
    Then proceeded to miss all but one in 2nd :HUMBLE PIE :lol5:.

    IMG_5059.JPG IMG_5060.JPG I spent the weekend with my brother (Fireman 170). We had a lot of projects going, but we did manage to get some trigger time. We brought revolvers (and my G34).

    Bobcat learned a valuable lesson today - pay attention. Pay attention to where you rest your barrel, and pay attention to where your brass goes. He had his barrel on the range bag (even after I explained why all the sandbags look the way they do), melted some of the covering to his barrel. That was a piece of cake to get off, though.

    This, not so much! Gotta watch what that brass might bounce off of. :D:eek:

    Nope, the 66 in the picture isn't the commemorative. It sure has a wonderful trigger.
