I'm nearly out of empty cases! Guess I might have to shoot a few of them so I can get back to reloading :lol:


Took my son out coyote hunting last nite, he with the modded 10-22 (velocitors) and me with "thumper" and a pocket full of reloads :wink:


There was an old plastic flower pot thing laying on the trail 80yds up...been there for years and really needed to be moved. I told my son to set the scope and blast away. He hit and nudged it a few times with the velocitors, good shooting I might add. Then I put the ear plugs in and my son slinged his rifle and grabbed his ears. KAPOOOWWWWW. The plastic pot flew from one side of the trail to the other, dirt flew up and left a slice down the trail. Hmmm, not bad. Seems to be shooting pretty good with the red dot and handloads. Next stop will be the range down the road.



Hey guys, thanx for your tips, hints and help!

The load is working well but for some reason still getting that 3rd shot flyer. I'll be able to get that prob figgerd out by this fall, though. I'm using a cheap (that's right, I'm not defending this thing) Simmons red-dot I got for christmas....35.00clams. It works great so far, has the 4moa dot and will put the first two shots so close it's unbelievable (sometimes in the same hole) at 50yds, but it's that third shot that gets me and might be a flinch. Guess I'll be sure to hit it with the first two!
