Lots and lots of images

What you are going to be looking at is images of target death. All from .45 Colt. Each picture will tell you what weapon how far. all of the bullet heads are 300gr Lead Round Flat Nose, and the Marlin 1894CB some of the loads are 11.9gr of Uniqiue This will be noted by the image, in fact each image will have a note telling you what you are looking at. All handgun are stooting the 9.2gr of Unique I may have in fact I know that I forgot that info on the images. The rounds out of the Marlin shooting the 9.3gr had a velocity of 1297 giving the bullet energy of 1120.35 foot pounds. The 3 inch Ruger had a velocity of 982 giving the engery of the bullet 642.24 foot pounds. The 5 inch ruger had a velocity of 1012 giving the bullet 682.08 foot pounds of energy. The 7 inch Ruger had a velocity of 1042 giving the bullet 723.11 foot pounds of engery. Very nice for hunting just about anything in North America.

Also you will find target death from the same 300gr bullet loaded in to .45 ACP these rounds had a velocity of 925.6 giving the bullet 570.46 foot pounds of energy. Very impressive for an ACP round. The main problem I had with the 300gr bullet in the ACP was I loaded it a bit to long and feeding was a big pain. I used 6.4gr of Unique and the back presure was a little high, it pushed the primers out a bit and beat the head stamps up pretty good.

It should be noted there are lot of images so if you are on dail up it may take a long while.

Marlin 1894CB 24 inch BBL

This is the test fire of the 11.9gr of the Unique powder it should be pointed out I wrote down the wrong powder charge on the target. The range was 25 yards and the grouping not bad, but I have shot better It will still take out a Hog or a Deer. The weapon was the Marlin 1894CB with a 24 inch BBL

Same load at 15 yards with the same weapon Better grouping


Image hosting by Photobucket
This is the same weapon as the last two but the powder charge is 9.2gr of unique this was at 25 yards better grouping then the 11.9 but I tried to take the picture down range and it blurred.

Ruger Vaquero 3 inch BBL All of the handguns were fireing the 9.2 Unique Loads

7 yard shot with the 3 inch Ruger not bad groups the recoil in the 3 inch is a bit heavey but after all it is a 3 inch barrel.


Image hosting by Photobucket
Same weapon as above nice groups I was happy the get groups like that at 15 with the 3 inch I also tried to take this image down range and it blurred. They looked good on the camrea.

I was just happy to hit the target with the 3 inch at 25 yards so I'm going to say the picture is a bit blurred but you can still see the shot group.

Ruger Vaquero 5 inch BBL


Image hosting by Photobucket
I pulled the first shot on this one, I my mind was still thinking 3 inch BBL and not 5 inch BBL but the other 5 went right in the 10 ring out of the 5 inch Ruger these are the 9.2 Unique loads


Image hosting by Photobucket
the 5 inch Ruger at 15 yards.


Image hosting by Photobucket
25 yards with the 5 Inch not real bad but could be better.


Image hosting by Photobucket
Ruger Vaquero 7 inch BBL


Image hosting by Photobucket
7 yards with the 7 inch, one could almost touch the target with that long of a barrel :-)


Image hosting by Photobucket
I have no idea how I did this and could not do if I tried. I think I was starting to get a bit wore out from shooting. 15 yards with the 7 inch


Image hosting by Photobucket
25 yards with the 7 inch I had one extra round so you can count an extra hole in the target. I had to have been pulling the shots at this point.

This is the test weapon a M1911A1 Auto-Ordnance 7+1 5 Inch BBL


Image hosting by Photobucket
This is the bullet a 300 grain Lead Round Nose sitting on top of 6.4 grains of Unique with a CCI 300 Primer


Image hosting by Photobucket
First Target 7 rounds at 7 yards you can see one hole high on the target I pulled the weapon.


Image hosting by Photobucket
Second Target 7 rounds at 15 yards much better groups.


Image hosting by Photobucket
Third Target at 7 rounds at 25 yards hitting high but still much better then the 7 yard target but not as good as the 15 yards target


Image hosting by Photobucket
recovered bullet, the bullet had hit the back stop and this was what was left.


Image hosting by Photobucket
This is my Marlin Camp Carbine in .45 ACP the bullets were loaded a bit to long for it to chamber but the 3 that load hit dead center bullseye at 25 yards, not really worth taking a picture of.


Image hosting by Photobucket
This is a blurred picture but if you look close you can see that the primers pushed out do to the high presure of the load.

The last image is of the brass that come home from the range all and all a good day.
