At our annual SASS shoot recently we were challenged with a small-ish steel ram at 125 yards...make that read dinky !

I had loaded and done a bit or practicing with my 38-55 using 6 grains Trail Boss,under a cast boolit with good results, so decided to see if I could stretch it out.fps was right at 900 fps,240-ish grain bollits.

I used the Marbles tang sight as a ghost ring,next year I will use the eye cup thingy,I installed it afterward and was surprised how large the hole was for viewing, Way more accurate I"m thinking.

what we did was load and shoot 5,then reload 5 and shoot them for a total of 10 rounds for score. I got 6 out of 10,standing, next year I hope to beat that with more practice.

I gotta tell ya ,whacking that ram and hearing that clang was sooooo gratifying !! :)

I took this short video after the timed even just for fun.

Nice shooting.
That is rather small considering the holes in it.
