    Hey nothing wrong with that. The wife almost always comes along when i head to the range. She loves her hand guns and 22 rifle. But is not one for recoil at all. But we do have a blast.

    I have a Lithgow just like that I bought from the Rose's Store in Aiken, S.C. in the early '90s when they still sold guns. Payed $59.95 for it on sale as I recall. Wish I had bought several more now.

    Is that the same "Rule .303" from Breaker Morant- the movie? Girls and guns forever!

    The woman don't take no (stuff) and never did. Have always liked that about her.

    Funny thing is that you and Mrs.Thumbcocker are using the same powder charge I use in my Finn model 27 but with a 314299 at about 210 grains weight. Have seen the same powder charge mentioned more than a few times. Must be a sweet spot with 4759. Frank
