So much more ummm satisfying than shooting paper. 178grain ELDX sounds like a train wreck at 300.
My first time to shoot steel. Love it.
It ain't easy being me.

Glad it's working for you.

Paper is for zeroing and load development. Steel is for DOPE, and practice.

Wait until you get out to the longer ranges. It's incredibly satisfying to pull the trigger, call the hit, then wait "forever" for the sound to get back to you.
Silver spurs and gold tequila

Pretty girls and old cantinas

My neighbor heard me clanging the gongs this morning with the 45 auto. Kinda surprised me driving up on his utv while I was muffed up. He said it sure sounded fun.
One shot is all it should take.
