Going shooting at Bullethole Sat. I'm taking ALL my guns that day, HK, FNP, Rem, and Marlin. Plan to shoot 300 rounds through the HK and FNP, at least 50 rounds through my shottie and 80 rounds through my new Marlin.
I've only been to The Bullet Hole range once. It's close to 40 miles from me, or I'd be going there a lot. (I live up on the NE side of San Antonio, near the intersection of I-35 North and 1604, and usually go to Bracken or Cedar Ridge.) That trip to The Bullet Hole turned out to be a very fortunate excursion for me.
I struck up a conversation with a fellow shooting next to me... and over the course of the next few weeks, he got me started in reloading. I went to his house three or four times in that time period and he graciously let me use his equipment. That was last January. I've now got my own stuff and have reloaded just over 3,000 rounds of .38 Spec, .357 Mag, and .45 ACP. Great fun, this!
Went to the range today with my nephew, who's 16, and carried all my stuff and all my guns.lol. Put 600 rounds through my USP 9 and 200 rounds through my FNP-40. Round count for my USP 9 is 3000 and 600 for my FNP-40. I'll be putting more through my USP in the following weeks due to that I'm in an L.E. academy and have decided to use my USP 9 for range use instead of a Glock. Not to mention 9mm ammo is much cheaper . Plus I have better control and better follow up shots with my 9mm than a 40 and much better than a 45. Also put 80 rounds of Hornady LeveRevolution 30-30 through my Marlin :twisted: . Shooting at an 8" target 50yds away with IRON sights, standing up, no bench shooting here, resulted in 90% of hits within the target , the other shots were no more than 2" from hitting the 8" target, with one 5" flier . Didn't get to shoot my shottie, but might do that Sunday, and put another 100 rounds through my FNP-40.
Went back to the range today to shoot my 870 and burn off the last 100 rounds of 40 ammo I had left. I shot some winchester ranger reduced recoil buckshot and Fiocchi reduced recoil buckshot as well. Both felt the same when shooting and IMO the Fiocchi had a little bit better pattern at 25yds. Remington's low recoil also shot well. I also finished off 4 rounds of 3" mag buckshot(rem). The pistol line all looked at me when I shot those shells. Some other guys had shotguns as well but were shooting birdshot or lead I think, nowhere near as loud or powerful as those 3"mag buckshot.lol.
