Shooting With My Dad



I went up to the hills today with my Dad to do a little shooting and had a GREAT time. We shot the 22 pistols, drank some coffee and bullshitted for a while, then got some 41 time in. These pictures are of him shooting my Ruger Blackhawk chambered in 41 magnum. The loads were 285 grain hardcast bullets over 20 grains of H110 and a large pistol primer, for a velocity of 1400 feet per second. Yeah, that load thumps a bit as you can see by the bottom picture of him in full recoil.

Sweet!!! Looks like that Ruger has a bit of rise to it!!! Glad to hear you had a good time with your pop. Keep burning the powder, brother.

Neat. Looks like a nice place to shoot and chill a bit.
