Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Two more targets were shot today over my lunch hour. The temperature was a mild 80 degrees and light rain. I had the range all to myself which helps me to get back to work on time. I love shooting the cast lead loads using TrailBoss powder. They don't heat the barrels up and I can get by with just earplugs instead of earplugs and earmuffs. (I don't have much hearing left) This was the first time using cast lead in the Remington 1903a3. It is just as much fun as the FR8.

Jeff,

You inspired me to play around with some cast loads. I recently acquired a Lee 8mm Maximum Mold. It looked like a good bullet for the Lebel. I shot my Gew 1888/05/35 vs my Lebel. Much to my suprise, the Lebel won...I had never tried cast in it.

Nice looking rifles and great shooting!
Someday I may take up casting my own lead but as for now I have been buying them online.
