    Range report and thanks to all that advised

    Ok....not what you are used to, but damn I'm happy here. I am attempting to upload a pic that will not go, but I'll try. My 45/120 with paper patch project went to the range today, and I'm THRILLED! First round smacked a 4" steel disk at 50yards after having all my sights off and "bore sighted" by looking down the barrel and pointing sight to where looked good. So far already better than EVER! Next was a few groups at the same distance of 1-2.5" again so much better. Later in the day the others were playing hit the quarter....I put a 520 grain so close I couldn't believe it! Like within a quarter inch. As for anything longer range that was out. Fog was so thick you couldn't see 80-90 yards at the range. So again thanks to all that threw in their two cents worth. I'll keep trying with the pics. Okie Out.

    Congratulations! Always good to see a happy shooter. Especially when he is shooting well-dressed bullets.
