This customer has a "net"
nickname of "Wuddy". We'll post targets as testing continues
on his Barnes 45 caliber pcp.
I don't have the exact group size
(the target was e-mailed in). However; those are .452 holes. That's
pretty good shooting I'd say.
Another target from "Wuddy".
Those are Barnes Pneumatic slugs.
How's that for a nice clean, straight punch?
I think that's a 10 meter target,
Well, we stretched that one a bit!
That's 80 meters (87 1/2 yards)
These are Barnes 270 grain "Bishops"

How's that for some fine shooting?
50 meters (54.68 yards) off the
And - how'd you like to have that
kind of room indoors?
That's a five shot cluster of Raptor
205 grain slugs @ approx. 900 fps.
Go Wuddy, Go Wuddy Go!
Now, that's an indoor range with
some . . . Class!
Great Story . . .
Wuddy has a great set up. He's put
together the hardware to allow him to keep his Nitro Express hooked
up to the SCUBA tank at the bench. His yoke assembly has a first
class regulator built into it. So, he can sit and shoot and let
the reg do the chore of refilling. Neat.
Well, this arrangement promotes quicker
firing. All that compressed air being moved around promotes some
moisture. So, Wuddy's rifle is getting cooler with firing. The
guy on the range lane next to him is shooting a firearm. His rifle
is melting down from shooting. And, the fella's alittle warm under
the collar too - seems Wuddy's 100 meter targets are coming back
consistently smaller than the other guy's 50 meter firearm targets!
Eventually, the guy can stand it no
more - he challenges Wuddy to an "Off-Hand" show-down
on 50 meter targets to simulate "actual hunting conditions."
Oooohhhhh . . . I cringed . . . BIG
MISTAKE . . . (I've seen Wuddy shoot Off-Hand . . .)
"Wuddy Cleaned his Clock!"

Oh please . . . stop . . . I can't
stand it . . . thump thump . . . I'm on the floor over here .
Oh Heavens, I wish I could have seen
that . . .
More of Wuddy's Targets
I designed a slug which I called
a "Bishop". Wuddy seems to know how to feed them through
his Barnes Savannah Class 45 Nitro Express with the skill of an
Once again; this is a Barnes Handmade
rifle, sporting a Barnes handmade rifle barrel. The projectile
is a Barnes designed slug which "Wuddy" cast himself
in his Barnes manufactured bullet mold, and then sized in Barnes
It just brings a tear to my eye
. . .
Look at those clean slug punches
. . .
Here he's finding the range - walking
the slugs down the page.
Wuddy says that first shot - the
10X rattled him. Then he walked out of the group. After the high
shot, he broke for coffee. I've had this happen. When you see
that 10X, alone on a clean target, it's very unsettling to pull
the trigger the next time!
7 Bishops @ 100 meters (109+ yards)
6 Bishops @ 100 meters
And, 3 shots off Wuddy's knee @
50 meters. By Golly, that's fine shooting!
I've got to get me one of these
rifles . . . and a knee that steady . . . I'd have to be wrapped
in duct tape from head to toe . . .
