Default 8-25-22 ULite + .458x260 Sabotless Shoot

Well FINALLY! It cooled off enough that i felt comfortable to go out to the Rock Pit and get some shooting in! But I did take a fire extinguisher with me just in case.

The goal was to shoot this new 45 and make sure it was ready for the upcoming rifle deer season. Plus I needed to verify which primer might work best in the Bestill 2 piece breech plug.

This was the bullet I was shooting. A sabotless bullet at the time made by Lehigh Defense. I have shot this bullet a little bit last year. It was a very accurate shooter. Today I wanted to verify what I thought.



I really felt I would not have a lot of time before it warmed up so much that I would want to shoot any longer. The Basalt Pit warms up very rapidly. So planned worked out in my mind was to shoot 5 rounds. So I placed 5 birds on the rock wall came back in and set up the shooting bench and accessories! After that it was time to remove my long sleeve shirt - it was warming up quickly.

This is a composite picture of this morning activities.



After the five shoots, I quickly packed up and headed back to the house. Now I am trying to decide whether I even want to clean the rifle because it is suppose to be a good day for a morning shoot Tuesday morning. I really would like to do some more shooting!

Do you size those bullets down? If so what diameter?

Yes, I do size them to 451 with a simple Lee sizing dye, You are only resizing the drive barbs.

As usual Great Shooting Mike! If they ever ban shooting lead, I'm going to give them a try with my 451 White's.
