    I took pictures but I found out cannot post them from my computer without a photo hosting site (which i do not have) oh well. So here I go with X shots from a 50 caliber percussion Lyman great plains rifle "stuffed" with 50 grains of FFg powder behind a hand cast patched .490 round ball fired with CCI magnum #11 caps I cut the board horizontally. -Caintuck rifle

    OK there's 2 stacks of firewood. :thumbsup:

    Please don't post the number of shots taken. Just send me the info in a private topic and I'll post them at the end of the contest.
    If everybody knows how many shots it took you some of 'em might not bother to enter. :idunno:

    I went out today with my flintlock T/C Renegade with a .62 cal. GM smoothbore mounted. It was a nice day at the shooting range, I had it all to myself and I succeeded in making splinters. Jethro said he would decide on the categories after he receives the results. I would like to enter the category of everyone shooting the 2x4 contest at the Pleasant Creek shooting range in WV on June 2, 2012 @ 11:00am category.

    Smoke, judging from the cardboard backing looks like you only had 2 or 3 "hits" to cut the benched
    2x4 and 3 or 4 hits to cut the off hand. If the balls are in the same holes I'd think they wouldn't have cut much. Just trying to understand the few holes. I haven't tried it yet.

    So Jethro, I guess this isn't one of those,"set it up & shoot it in two", but one of those "shoot til you get a good one and send that one in". Making it more of a "who has the time and the powder and balls to shoot til you get a good one"
    Which way did you intend it? I'm not complaining, I've got the time and the powder and balls.

    Well, I guess I forgot to say...
    I had intended it to be a one-try-per-gun thing. Then, if you want to try again, grab another board and a different gun and have at 'er again.
    :hmm: I'm thinkin' a 4-bore might be a good choice... :wink:

    Sounded like makeumsmoke only shot one 2x4 in half off-hand with his .50 Hawken so he should be according to plan. Benched ones don't count.
