Entries for the Chunk Shoot
« on: July 02, 2009, 10:43:20 PM »
  Thought I'd re-post this to keep the 'sticky' down in page size.

Just received Roger's entry at noon today - 1/2 hour ago = postmarked 13 June.  Guess that's why they call it Snail-Mail.  That's 4 entries but the prizes will be smal without more entries.  The cash sent in is sent back to the first 3 plus the closest to the centre, same as last year.  Com-on guys - send in the entries.

BTW- did some practise yesterday - not happy :'( as it took 3 shots to zero in on an 8" :o steel plate at a lasered 232yards ;D.  the 8" and 4" plates at 109 yards were pretty easy.  Humidity about 30% - bright white fouling on the outside of the barrels, .40 flint and .69 caplock - no wiping necessary.  Ask me if I'm happy to have the 14 bore back. ;D ;D ;D  Would have been easier, except the powder's changed a bit since 1996.
