After reading about the "Lever Action Jubilee" shoot at Ridgeway I thought we should do something like that here in Montana.

The TENTATIVE CONFIRMED date for the festivities is June 25, the Saturday following the Quigley match.

The place will be the Yellowstone Rifle Club just west of Billings.

The exact course of fire is yet to be determined, but targets will be steel.
The range is set up for regulation NRA rifle silhouettes and there is a 700 yard buffalo gong.

Stay tuned for details.

Twodot, that sounds awesome. Have you got a designated videographer? I'd love to see some video of that............ 8)

Things are shaping up for a good time.

Targets will be full size chickens-pigs-turkeys-rams.

Will have to limit the 700 yard gong to hyphenated calibers and cast bullets, but hey that's what a buffalo gun is anyway.

More to come.

Did this ever take place? I heard the Quigley was called due to flooding. Any report TwoDot?
