Took my wife and 3 boys out today along with 50 milk jugs and some clays and a Champion ball target. We got to shoot 2 22lrs, a 222 Remington, 6mm Remington, 257 Weatherby, 270 Winchester, 350 Remington Magnum along with an 1895 GBL 45-70 and my 444P...almost forgot the 410 and 12ga. And a 45LC Ruger Bisley. It was a lot of fun and made for a perfect Spring Sunday afternoon!!! :D

Sorry guys no exciting targets or tests just a lot of fun...

I did try to catch a 225gr TSX out of my 350 Remington Magnum but 10 jugs wasn't enough and the rest of my crew didn't want me to waste them all...they love shooting them too ;)

Interesting. 10 jugs beats the heck out of anything I have accomplished with a 30-06 by a wide margin. Impressive.

I was a little surprised myself...last time I was shooting jugs I caught a 180gr. Nosler E-tip out of my 300 Weatherby in the 9th jug I figured I was safe with 10, maybe the slightly slower velocity and greater mass was the difference. The Nosler out of the 300 was doing right at 3000fps. My 350RM load does 2690fps. It was pretty impressive for an expanding bullet anyway.
