Well, it arrived this morning, in very good condition for a 50 year old rifle. Manufacture date is 1967. :razz:

I'd bet an extra four round magazine for that rifle would cost a bit....if you could find one for sale.

Found some new software for my endoscopes. Unfortunately the 5.5 mm OD one has stopped working so I hade to use the larger one to produce these images. It is too large to fit down the bore BUT I have ordered a new one that will.............

Last night's reloading session for the Savage.( More Rock & Roll music on YouTube!!)

49 cases ( 50th is 'dry' loaded as a test round)

FIRST LOAD.jpg


Cases; Winchester.
Powder; Tubal 7000.
Load; 52 gr.
Bullet; PRVI 120 gr FBHP.

I have another 50 to load after trying the first loads.

No range time until I have received the parts to adjust the eye relief on the scope. :(

I got the day wrong, the shoot was yesterday 15/4/2018, fortunately, I woke up before going to the range.
Sunny day, range 50 metres, aperture sight, gusty and strong wind (that's my excuse on the Fox :D :( )

Both shot without my specs :D now in my 85th year :!: :!:

There were six of us shooting Iron Sights and I came last, still, I'm quite happy to be last with a 95 score.

Participation is 100% enjoyment for me as I can just see well enough to make sure I am shooting on my own target :loco: :loco:
