Got out again this afternoon - nice and warm for Nov. 7 C so 44.6F.
6" of snow on the range, but shot not so hot. Oh well - mine don't count, anyway.
I score it 8 8's and 2 4's, so 32/50.

Well here is mine (well the only one near good enough to post).
.40 caliber Kibler SMR, .395 balls .013+/- pillow ticking patches with T.O.T.W. Mink oil, 60 grains of GOEX 3F. Only had the 1 day as it is hunting season, Thanksgiving and Pacific N.W. rainy season.
I will bow to the official scorer but I see it as a 48. Not bad for an old guy with shaky hands and bad eyesight.
