The MAH BP comp.

Postby joseyclosey » Sat Mar 01, 2014 3:13 pm

Right, got myself a loan of a Parker Hale Volunteer rifle for the coming Thursday so I am anticipating getting started on my targets for the MAH BP shooting competition.

Will I be the first to get a target in I asks meself?

Well Joe, the total targets already received is.........................NIL so you are in with a chance.
Don't forget, I need the actual target in the post to qualify for the BIG PRIZE

Good luck mate!

I'm going to have to print out the targets on a card paper as the normal printer paper is tearing badly and it will make scoring the cards difficult. It wasn't a wasted morning though as I now have a load sorted out for 25m.

It'll be two weeks now before I can borrow the rifle again so I will shoot my cards then.

Thanks Joe.
I bought my first muzzle loader not so very long ago.
I have to warn you.
It's very addictive.
I wish I started years ago with this part of our hobby.
I like everything about it.....yes....even the cleaning afterwards. :mrgreen:

Good luck to you too Joe.

Well, I shot all four of my cards on Thursday and I reckon that my scores won't take too much beating. :oops:

I did enjoy shooting them though.

Joe :D
