Stumbled across this the other day
This must be what DD is talking about .
Would be curious to know what loads were used and what the results were.
Obviously not good.

Yes Semtav, I remember the jubilation and run up to that match. Shot in it I do believe.
If you get a chance you might research the scores and who won the matches?

Id like to . If I could find them.
Would be interesting to see what their loads were also.

Seem to recall, one of the prominent proponents of PP loads shooting in that match earned a nick name from the team pulling their target:

Went something like rock-shootin-bugger or something along those lines. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Which suggests short rounds doing rock fragment damage to the face of the target. :roll:

Yeah, see if you can find those score sheets, also seem to remember the two lowest scores were not recorded on the final bulletin. :wink:

I think I've seen that moniker under someones name.

Funny thing about dirt diggers, once you figure out what causes them, they tend to disappear.


Unfortunately, I think most of the scores disappeared when Steve's site shut down.

Wasn't me. I earned that handle in 2017 shooting the fabled grease groove money bullet. Put a rock about a 3 inch rock right thru the 8 ring at 5 o'clock. Still have that rock on my desk. :)

Didn't find the scores yet, but from the looks of Kenny's pictures, PP might have held its own at that match

Yep, that is the match I was thinking of. This was when black duct tape and 2" wide masking tape became common in the pit target repair kits.

The Doc & Dan show was one of the best ever to shoot with wherever they were found.

Hopefully one day Doc will once again grace us with his presence on the long ranges.

Yes, in a Billinghurst Muzzle Loader by the way and Ray shot quite well.

Muzzle loaders are always welcome at AZWINS March Matches.
