I enjoy getting targets sent along
by customers enjoying their Barnes PCP's
This just came in this evening ...
That's a 100 yard group - shot just
before dusk in the Netherlands today 2-03-02. Light windy conditions
reported. Rifle - Barnes 45 Nitro Express shooting Barnes 215
grain Raptors. "Wuddy" at the trigger. Excellent.
Got an e-mail:
My scope box arrived today, thanks.
The Tundra is shooting quite well, I
have been shooting 1.5" groups at 80 yards all day long.
I am out of the
Raptors and thats what I've been shooting. I plan to get some
range time in
this weekend and intend to shoot bishops only this session. My
buddy and I
were shooting Quarters and Dimes that we set atop the target stand
challenge to see who could shoot better, I won with 3 quarters
and 2 dimes to
his 3 quarters and no dimes. We both took a total of six shots
expensive targets, but it was still fun.
James promises pics soon. He's shooting
the recently delivered 45 Tundra Magnum with Barnes custom "Raptor"
slugs. Shooting coins @ 80 yards sounds pretty good to me! Most
of us have a pocket full of "targets" at all times.
Should remind us to go to the range when we get change .... (smile)
Doc Marino called me this AM, following
up on this week's e-mail. Confirmation: 50 yd. Range at 1:00 pm
Doc was warmed up when I got there. Had this 5 shot group on the
50 yard backer. Yeah .... there were holes behind the target (I
So, I figured he was ready to test my new 32
caliber Falcons through his Prairie Classic.
I let him fire off a few while I adjusted the
second stage of the "Synapse" match trigger in his Barnes
Ranger FT. A sort of "House Call" I made for the Doc
Here's Doc's test group of Falcons
That's a 4 shot "Group" and one (between you and me) "Hideous Wild Flier!" @ 50 yards. Yes,
I know, I know ..... WHAT was he thinking ....?
Nice Shooting Mike. (actually,
I think he tosses one once in awhile just to keep me suckered
into shooting with him ..)
I made this 5 shot group @ 50 yards
with my Prairie 2 and Falcons.
Toward the end of the session - targets
were all full - I used the "Hoppe's" logo as the POA
for this 5 shot 50 yard group.
Well, there's a report of four different
Barnes PCP rifles which were shooting this weekend. Also 3 different
unique Barnes designed custom slugs. Hope you got out to enjoy
