So Monday armed with a Baer SRP and a couple hundred rounds hand loads consisting of 4.8 grains of Tite Group and 230gr Xtreme plated RN. It was a good morning but would have been so much more fun if I had a shooting buddy along to share the time with.
Over 55 years of shooting sports I have noticed this to be a common trait for most people in this sport category. I run a couple of informal events each year, and although it is a bit of effort and work, the rewards of meeting new shooting buddies far outweighs the work. Might be something to consider.
