Levergun plinking.


Recommended Posts

Thought I would up my small game load in my 30wcf today from 14.5gns of A2400 to 15gn.

Glad I did. Shoots a little tighter.

I shot three at concrete with a stone  set in it smaller than a rabbits head at 50yds. First shot hit it and the next two landed on that splash.

The previous load I felt was a touch erratic and it showed on similar targets as in more flyers.

Next I went to a ploughed field in a valley and plinked to 400 yards.

400 was pushing it but 200 & 300 was straight forward enough. No rabbit wants to be giving me rude gestures put it that way!

It was fun and confidence building, I wish I had brought a few full power ammo now just to compare.

For a 56year old rifle it certainly shoots good and is easy to carry all day. Its like shooting a BB gun off hand too.

Short video.

You get the mole SD , I’ve got the lead 👍

I mean for the price you both could get one lol. Think their made in Slovenia so the most expensive one is only like $120 I think. Head nothing but good things about the guys and he even runs custom groups buys on CastBoolits.com . Looking at getting the 311410 myself.

Thanks Wolfie but I really do not want to go the casting rout. I could get a used Lee mold tomorrow. It looks to be 130gn round nose gas checked.

I'd rather just scavenge jacketed bullets. I'll just reverse them if they are too pointy.
