Bob, not sure about Goex, he said he was bringing Swiss and having a special as it is metric by weight. Something about he can't ship it out of the store, but can sell it out of his booth.

Our usual group of eight will be there! Really looking forward to it.
By the way, I have a new, to me, camper this year and coming from Iowa. Is there somewhere in Forsyth a guy can full his fresh water tank before heading out to Quigleyville?
Thanks!

Fresh water fill taps available to campers are getting to be real scarce Todd, the lawyers have seen to that. There is a dump station at the Town Pump and a rinse hose but I sure wouldn't want to use that hose. I have a friend in town that lets me use his garden hose. Have a good shoot but most of all have fun, that's rule #2.

My buddy filled up at the water processing plant in 2019 in Forsyth, I'm hoping that that will be available again for my camper.

Would even fill up in Miles City if anyone knows of a place. I just hate to drag that much water that far.

Ok, I just called and you can still get water at the Forsyth Water treatment plant, just have to go in the alley behind, instead of in front. Said should call when pulling into Forsyth, and they'll help us out.

Their #4063467511.

Take your own hose or two. My wife got water from a convenience store in town, no charge. She never had to unload the water reservoir we carry. Forsyth is pretty glad to have us visit.

Per another thread, OE loads for a gong shoot, which doesn't count I guess......

40-65s main rifle and backup. Don't know which is which right now. And enough loads to keep up with Kurt. :lol:

That ain't enough Gussy.
I took 1800 one year and ran out before the second Baker shoot. I thought I had a box set aside but when I pulled it out the camper and it ended up with just a couple over 20.
The next year I took 2000 rounds and Brian's Daughter confiscated a box so I can shoot the second match :lol:
I think she told Brian, I would think at his age that he would know how to pace himself :lol:
But I think she forgot the memory chips get a little overloaded at my age. :lol:

mdeland, if your squib load was just a result of only the primer pushing the bullet into the rifling (you forgot the powder) and you reloaded with a new cartridge and its bullet was pushing the squibed bullet you probably would not have had a blow up. 1865 testing of the Peabody kept going until other rifles had been eliminated and the Peabody was fired with 80 grains of powder and 5 balls with no damage. It probably would have kicked a bit. The damage would have been if the first bullet was halfway up the barrel.
