    I Won!

    I shot my first ever turkey shoot yesterday (first ever competition for that matter). I won a 5lb Bologna roll.

    I was using my SA MilSpec 1911 with a Lee TC 230gr. over 5gr. Bullseye.

    Came in second for the ham.

    I won a turkey once. I was about 14 at the time. When they handed it to me, it blead all over my boots, my jeans, ( we called them Levi's) and my brand new Colt . 243 and my K6. Never entered another one.

    Much rather had a tube of bologna.

    This one is a paper target shoot. They go to the freezer and get your bounty after the match.

    Congrats on the win. Always nice to hear what mold and load was a winner too.

    Shot 2 heats at today's turkey shoot. Didn't win. My work buddy won a turkey and a turkey breast. Another shooter there won both hams!
