Jethro: -7? If it'd been that cold, the paper would still be on the shelf.
I know 18 deg is shirt sleeve weather for some but it's cold enough for my shootin'.
Right now it's.....lessee....one deg outside. Dogs don't want to go out.

:applause: I shot mine in the rain this morning. Then I dropped it in the mail on my way home. Should be there by Tuesday. :thumbsup: I forgot to mark my target with my weapon and load. They are a .54 caliber Early Lancaster using a .530 roundball wrapped in a .012 cotton patch over 80 grains of FFg Goex BP.

I'm still here guys......occasionally. Well I got it done this morning. I think Jim/OH was getting a little nervous about his partner. This workin for a living is sure interfering with my shooting. Should have snuck out last Thursday when it was 80 degrees but I decided to wait till this morning....when it was 25. :shake:

Anyhow it's on its way Jethro

All the targets are in! The measurements are measured, the math is done, Here Are the Results;

On a side note, there was somethin mighty strange that occurred here.

Grey Whiskers and Buripity. 2 good friends from Winton CA. Shootin' buddies. Went shootin' together the day they shot their targets. They BOTH scored 1.288" exactly the same as each other! :shocked2:

Different size holes. Clocked different on the targets but both 1.288".
