    Congratulations ...Well Done !

    Ironic , my pet 30-30 load is with a 175 grain Lyman #311041 GC FP
    over 27 grs. IMR 3031 @ 1852 fps .
    3031 just seems to work with the 30-30 and cast boolits !
    Good Shooting ... a clay bird at 200 yards ...WOW !
    I'm Impressed !

    3x9 scope. Sandbag rest. Not super hard.

    I disagree. If you hit a clay at 200 yards every shot with a .30/30 cast bullet, you are one hell of a caster, reloader and shooter. That is very impressive.

    Not every shot. Ranging shots with a spotter to figure out which cross bar on the post to use. Then hit the bird. Then quit while I was ahead.

    Always quit when ahead. 30/30 145 PB & 9.5 unique. Fun, no recoil and plenty for hogs. Just front bag @ 50. Disregard the top 2, an experiment that didn't work. Kinda cold that day, could have done better. Just loaded up another 30 rnds of it.

    Great shooting! Nice to see you use the same high end targets I use.
    Nothing gets rid of tension like shooting your old computer with a 10 gauge.

    That's a fine group at 100 , once dialed in I believe you would be good for 1 clay bird per shot at 200
