Doing some plinking out at the Farm today

Like everyone else, I have been locked in the house. I took a ride out to my niece's farm to shoot my 51Colt, 58Remingtion cap and ballers, as well as my M95 Nagant seven, shot revolver. I loaded some gas seal cartridges last week using my early model Nagant die with a few mods they worked great. Before that, I was using an M1 Carbine Lee Loader I moded that also worked well. I loaded the 7.62X38R cartridges with 2.7 grains of Unique and some real.308 jacketed wadcutters. I wasn't too sure how they were going to shoot in a .312 barreled Nagant. But they shot really well. They shot to a minute of a tin can no problem success! I got a good clean burn on the powder but they were a little on the light side this time I am going to try three grains of powder. As for cap and ball revolvers well those are just pure fun to bounce cans with. Now it's time to start cleaning guns.

Be vewy vewy quiet I'm hunting wabbits! Hahahah
