Took the 50th Anniversary .44 Mag out today with some handloads, the 250 grain Lyman #429421 and 10.0 grains of Unique. Shot these at 40 yards offhand.

I bought the targets at a local gun shop, I have one more that I am going to use to do two things, make more targets from cardboard and posterboard using it as an outline, and they are great for hunter safety courses showing the vital areas of the deer.
The grips came from 41magnum who is here on this forum, they are spalted maple.

Good, I was wondering if posting pics in the PM section would work. I had done it to another member, and didn't get a response. The little rope trick does help steady ones hands. Work on the length to where you apply pressure to it while you are extending your arms, w/o making it too short & it hurts.

Contender could you show us what you mean? Thanks,

don44, the little rope trick is where you tie your intended target to a tree, so it can't run away :lol: . This allows you to get as close as you want to the target, without it taking off. :D . Takes the shakes right out of a person(but sure as heck gives them to the target) :D :D :D .

contender usually does this the night before opening day, and has his buck hog tied for easy retrieval, the next day :p

don44, I'm guessing contender was talking about using a rope loop, that goes around your neck, and one arm, under the armpit, bandolier style. It is then hooked by your thumbs, when extended to arms length, as in your shooting stance. The loop should be snug, to steady things up.

I just couldn't resist the other explanation :D .
