Range report

Took 3 guns to the range yesterday. My Ruger SP101 shot 50rds
130gr American Eagle 38's through it.
My Ruger MarkIII, 100rds Federal Target 40gr, this thing eats anything I feed it but I prefer the Federal. The last outing I put Thunderbolt, Bucket O' bullets, and some other cheap stuff and no problems.
And my new to me Kimber Ultra Aegis. Put 50rds of 124gr Blazer Brass through it, flawless I wanted to shoot the Blazers since I just bought 1000rds of it on sale. Shot from 30" to 50', two hand and everything shot pretty good groups for me but didn't take any pics, forgot my phone and wouldn't hear it at the range anyway.

Great report Mike! (except for no pics) My bride took my SP101 away from me. I need to take it back just to clean the cobwebs out of it at the range. I really enjoy shooting that gun.

Thanks Glok, I like that gun, although I save the 357's for my GP100.
In the SP the back of the trigger guard really hurts my knuckle on "THE
finger" so just feeding 38's for now. That MarkIII is just plain old cheap fun. Glad I stocked up on 22 when I did, that thing is accurate

Than you Chuck. That's 350rds through it for me, can't believe how accurate it
is with the 3" barrel, I think the trigger has a lot to do with it.

Nice report Mike, those Utra's definitely shoot good and I also think the trigger has a lot to do with it.

Talking Sounds Good!! Me Like!!

Three guns, 200 rounds, no issues and accuracy, too!! Sounds like a pleasant and productive day at the range!! What more could you ask for!! Thanks for sharing this, Mike!!

I forgot my phone! What a sad excuse for not having pictures!!! The reason that we request pictures on KT is because some of our members don't read too good!!! Remember, a picture is worth a thousand words!!! thumbs-up.gifthumbs-up.gifthumbs-up.gif
