    Question for all WV'ns

    Ate lots of squirrel brains when I was a kid growing up in West (by God smile when you say it) Virginia. Ate lots of other things also. Possum, skunk, ground hog, etc. etc.

    45acp WB loads

    C G, for those of us who have been running the guns in competition for over 50 years I think the general consensus is that the 45 ACP runs well with 230's. Others use 185's. I don't thing too many GM's used 200's. The general feeling I have got over the years was that the heavy bullets give a nicer recoil feel but the lighter ones cycle the gun faster so it is possible to run it faster. Neither seems to be a clear advantage. I think 230's are more popular now as always over the lighter bullets with professional shooters. JMHO

    Scope recommendations...?

    As Lumpy said, SWFA and my personal preference Europtic. Best place to deal with I have ever used. Not sure if you qualify but they have discount programs for many. Check at their home page to see if you can qualify.

    1911 mags that suck

    There is NO prohibition on removable bases !!!! As long as the magazine meets the requirements stated in the rule it is legal. I should know, I wrote the rule.

    20# spring?? I kind of doubt it. Maybe an old one that has lost it's temper.

    45acp WB loads

    3.8 WST under a 230 TC bullet. But I only use Kart barrels. Most need 4.0 with other barrels.

    Scope recommendations...?

    Bushnell Tactical Elite scopes are the best for the money you can buy. Made in a different factory than the other Bushnell scopes. They can be found on sale often. The 6x24 is a great scope. The Vortex RZR's cost more than the Bushnells but have great glass. The Vortex less expensive scopes are a good choice. Sadly, Leupold isn't what it used to be. Remember, you can't hit what you can't see. I tell everyone I know buying a long range gun to plan to spend more on the optics than you did on the gun.

    OT: What non-AR semiauto rifles are available?

    There are many out there. Copies of the HK 91 and 93 come to mind first. I have the original ones, as well as NFA versions of them. Awesome rifles. Plenty of rifles available in 7.62 X 39.

    When is brass too old to reload

    B V, how is your place in Mexico faring with the storm?? Hope all is well.

    Question about sights

    Use the one with the short sight. Nearly all new sights are filed down to make POA = POI.

    I am not here to start an argument, just to point out the pertinent rule. Normally the CRO/TO would stop the shooter when they moved with the closed SG (unless it was a hammered SG) and then check to see if the hammers were cocked. Easy, just pull the trigger/s and listen for the hammer/s to fall. If they fall, SDQ, if not reshoot for "impeding the shooter" . Simple easy call if the CRO/TO is paying attention.

    Patagonia Pete: Read the rule you just posted: .........Hammers fully down ........... If you open a hammrless shotgun, empty the shells and then close it the hammers are cocked.
  15. Happy Jack, SASS #20451


    IF the shooter had a HAMMERLESS shotgun the target engagement order is mute. SHB page 22 Stage Disqualifications: Changing location with a long gun with the action closed and the hammer cocked.
