I took my family to the range Saturday, where my son made some more smoke from his left handed cut down Kit Carson that LAGS over at CB rebuilt for him.

All rounds fired at 11 yards, two hand standing. 25 grains of OE 3f, need to try again with longer paper and 30 grains. For some reason the people shooting downwind of us seemed to need to leave suddenly, no idea why...

I sure wanted to make it to this one but between being behind at work and a bad u-joint on my truck, couldn't make it happen. I'm glad y'all had a good one. Is it held the same time every year? Is there a spring rendezvous as well?

Yes Sir! it was a great time & wish you could have made it down.

Our Spring camp is the 4 th weekend of April & Fall camp is the 4 th weekend in October. Every year, unless something drastic happens.

Waiting by the front door for some black powder to appear so I can put it away for latter.
Got 5 more pounds to add to my stock pile. First time that I've purchased any Swiss powder. At $10 more a pound it probably will be the last.

After three attempts, I finally made some powder that ignites. If commercial powder becomes hard to come by, I have an alternative.

And today I dry balled my rifle :doh:.
So, I had the pleasure of disassembling the rifle and remove the breach plug because I also screwed up pulling the ball. It was a learning opportunity.
