Postby Elvis Kiwi » Sat Aug 10, 2013 7:52 pm

took my old single barrel Baikal out for a walk this morning while checking our sheep and the trap line
first shot fired was a 40grm load of lead #4s the last one I had result 1 dead rabbit 30 yards
second shot was a factory steel #3 result one dead in the air parrie duck at 30ish yards
third shot was a 7/8th oz load of steel #4s at a bolting small rabbit the dog put out at 15-20 yards one dead bunny

Does this say , you're a better Bunny shooter than one on the fly ? Or , Rab- bits are better eating over there ?

lol one shot at a stationary target
one flying and last one running flat out :huh:
its good to have great gun fit the aim is instinctive up and boom
my ol shottie looks like crap, but shoots like a dream, for me at least. trouble being my son has taken a liking to it as well :huh: nah no problem there, he is welcome to use her and Ill lug the pump around, I just thought I would post this as going by the threads started lately a lot of guys get all hung up on choke and what load when good gun fit is 75% of the battle before you slap the trigger, at the closer range targets anyway.
and yes the cotton tail bunnies are good eating as are the hares.
