We got together and shot this today. Got up onto the low 50s and slightly windy.

I shot my Traditions Crockett .32 caliber again.
Cast .310 roundball
20 grains of Goex FFFG
.015 pillow ticking patch lubed with 50/50 Ballistol and water
Remington # 11 caps

GaryPL and I have a few members of our gun club that are beginning to join us for this little match. We have a good time and I have begun to look forward to this match every month.

A very pleasant way to spend the afternoon.

Was feeling a little bit better today and had a high of 41. I needed to get out of the house :)
Traditions Kentucky 50 CAL
1/66 twist
.490 round ball
.018 patch with bore butter
30 grains of Tripple 7 FFFG
My 10 year old also went out with me. He shot too but with a shooting stick. I told him he could not officially compete because he had a rest. His is the exact same load. His is the second picture. He wanted me to share! :)

As always thank you for hosting.
Used the old garage sale Jukar .45 that should not shoot good but does :dunno:.
Ya almost got me switching bullseye!!
And of course I pulled one as per usual.
Used homemade caps also, I'm not unhappy with them. View attachment 117350
