Range report, Sapphire Pro II Follow-up

100 rds. of Fiocchi 147 gr. FMJ through it and the weapon functioned flawlessly. It has a total of 200 rds. of 147 gr. through it; think I will move to 124 gr, then to 115. Unfortunately, it was not kicking the cases into a neat little pile. I actually had to hunt for four or five, maybe!

Lower 70's, no wind, bright sun at the range today. Finished up by 0930 as it was beginning to get warm.

You poor poor guy. Starnovi is getting hit in the head with casings while you're playing seek and find.....

Guys.

Down ain't the problem. You can fall down.

UP is the problem; thank GOD for benches.

Then there're the knees....

I like reading your range reports Dave, makes me want to be outside when I read your weather conditions! Well, the good thing about shooting indoors is, just sweep the casings down range!

@ Starnovi;

There was a ton of 380 brass at the range I was on yesterday; I've even found 38 special. I can't figure how one loses that. Of course, not everyone at our club reloads....

It's surprising how many people do not clean up after themselves on the range, indoor or outdoor, even with signs posted! I always go with the motto...leave a place better than when you found it.
