Default The .45-70... It just keeps getting better and better.

Ok, it doesn't seem like I can go to the range without taking the Buffalo Classic (.45-70). Until I get tired of it, you all are gonna hafta put up with the 'range reports'.

This time I stuck to three bullets at three ranges. The bullets are the 500 grain Lee Postell 3-radius-ogive, the Lee 405 grain flat-point, and a "factory" 405 using what looks like winchester's jacketed 405. The ranges were 25, 50, and 100 yds. I only shot the 500 at 25.

I'll start with "real" targets and follow with my 'virtual' targets, and I'll start with the 500 grain bullet. Here are its real targets.

The top picture is of the single 3-shot 25yd group and the first 3-shot 50yd group. The second picture is of the second 3-shot 50yd group, and the last picture is of the 2-shot 100yd group.
