The 480 Achilles at CSA

Post by JimT »

Day 2 of CSA ... friends shooting my 480 Achilles ... I found the Killebrew Bullet with 12 gr. 2400 to be quite accurate.

One upon a time I shot that revolver exactly five times at the steel plate at the far left of the field at what was said to be 75 yards. Didn't hit it at all. Not even sure how close i got. Mister Quinn shot it once and rang the plate. I believe you had it loaded with the traditional hollow bullet.

I shot at the 50 yard plate today and missed. Rob Adams hit it 4 out of 5 with the same load.

That is a fun and interesting gun.
