Hitting that 1 1/2” 25 ring at 200 yards standing up is possible, just doesn’t happen very often. Trust me, I try a lot ;-)

Great video and a 2 oz trigger to boot. Looks like fun. By the way what’s behind your screen name?

Thanks for the video Bob. Very interesting. I can easily see the appeal of this kind of shooting. Personally, I doubt I could see the target little own the center ring! Impressive shooting.

Mike, the colored aiming point is big enough to see if shooting iron sights, 12”. Easy to see through a scope.

Miles, It is great fun. Only thing more fun is shooting 1,000 yards with a black power cartridge like 45-70 ;-)) Total disaster is behind the screen name. Overdosed by a idiot who probably shouldn’t be in the medial field. Took 3 years to recover my arability to type on a keyboard. Severe psychotic reaction. The Dr who claimed to be an expert and could fix me wanted me on high doses of Seroquel to spending the rest of my life starring out a window! My family convinced me to fire the Drs and become my own Dr taking charge of my recovery and migraines. Fair warning to anyone prescribed Topamax, there can be a giant down side! None the drs here will admit it, but I have been to Hell and back because of it. If you have an adverse reaction, you come up against what I call the “Great White Wall.” The lab coats the drs wear, sold wall of white covering each others hind ends, to hell with the patients when it comes to liability for incompetence. They are just collateral damage and a cost of doing business.

Looks like fun to me Bob. I never saw a rifle with the handle hanging like that, interesting. With the new prices and difficulty of even getting black powder these days there must not be much of this type of shooting anymore. We order it from a friend that manufactures muzzle brakes. My brother has a small cannon made from a bronze boat motor shaft (.38 cal) & we don’t get to shoot it much anymore.

Depends on how you are built as to whether you use a palm rest (that handle). Guys that can put their elbow on their hip or torso use it. Some let the rifle sit on top their extended fingers. I can’t get my elbow within 4 or 5” of my torso. Always had too much meat on me upper body. I just let it lie in the palm of my hand and it is still aimed a bit too high. The idea is to stand there totally relaxed with the rifle on target so you aren’t fighting it.
