Default That was a close one!

Im getting all my stuff packed for my Sept 10 CO muzzy hunt and so im sitting here filling up some powder tubes with BH209, got all the primers and bullets in tubes as well, close up my belt bag and WHOOOOPS! Im sighted in for 110gr BH209, not 100gr!

I don't know how much of a difference it made but it was a dang close call at blowing a tag this year LOL.

yeah probably not but if i can make a deer out at 200 yards with these sights and my eye glass stick on "peep" that 10 grains would have changed my impact a good deal LOL.

I pretty much got all the essentials as far as pre loaded powder tubes, primers, bullets & sight tool. Even have some bore cots and my license stuck into my belt pouch. So im ok in that department.

Now to get the binos cleaned up and packed away, then clothing which i will have to pick some stuff up maybe tomorrow. Socks are always a weakness and never seen to bring enough so im doubling up this year since it most likely will be hotter than heck.

Im excited though!

Ughhh! Ok it dulled a bit LOL. have to bring down the sleeping bags and wash them.

Maybe! With the truglow ghost ring and now that peep sight i attach to my glasses, it might be possible to see the deer better this time around.
