Snider range day..........

Postby DuncaninFrance » Wed Dec 14, 2016 3:53 pm

I finally got some free time and loaded up 10 Magtech cases the way my mate Rob showed on his recent video.
The cases were once fired so were fire formed to my Snider Mk:III.

Load: 70 grn ffg - 38 grn maize filler - card wad - .600 X-Ring lubed bullet.

Result: 2 sighters at 50 mtrs then 7 rounds at 100 mtrs. ( The bullet came out of one round in the box so could not be fired.) with 5 hits. Not a very good day........


Think I need to go back to backer rod and a properly seated bullet........... :roll:

Bad shooting is still better than no range time at all :P
