I've just been home from the range long enough to swallow down 3 cold Dois Equis brews and probably more to come. I'm very dehydrated from the heat after all of the monsoon rains and cool weather we've had. Mostly my first real attempt with cast bullet 32-20 rifle loads was pathetic. I had test loads ranging from 3.5 grains of Unique to 5.5 grs with a lyman keith style 100 gr bullet. The 3.5 and 3.7 loads showed promise but after that they looked like number 4 buck out of a cylinder bore barrel. The last two charges of 5.3 and 5.5 would have two bullets in one hole and the third one so far off that you couldn't call it a flier. I think my bunny loads may not be realistic if this continues. My Grandson is a pretty good baseball pitcher and I think even his knuckle ball would be more effective. This was fired in my Marlin 1894 CL. My next attempt will be withTtitegroup Powder.If I don't get much better I will have to build a cage and put my bunny targets in it and let them re-produce and maybe then I can just shoot into the bunch and cripple one.
