Dang! I was wondering if there is a shortage of pistol shells there? I know several folks around here who go to the firing range and siad it's getting harder to get pistol ammo.

Well it's not good here either, primers is what we need, for those of us who roll our own, primers is in short supply. You know who did stimulate part of the economy.:rolleyes:

Shoud be duck soup or rather swan soup, it will shoot 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 moa.:D Little wider groups if we go from the target load to the ones with the 330 hp, soft cast of course.:D

Swan are hard to kill. My experience is "shot", about 6 size in the head. These body shots with .22 are not any where near as effective, especially if there are witnesses....

No, not the shotgun unless it's flying, not proper, that's why I don't like turkey hunting in my state, shotgun only for firearm.

Here, use my classic Winchester Low-Wall, rebarreled to 22 Hornet, it will work fine, btw, that's one a them old steel K-12 Weavers from back when they were made in El Paso.;)
