No, not mine. Although mine were shot about an hour up the road from Phil. BTW do they still station the state police around Phil leading up to GH day?

50 yards and there was only about a half inch of skin holding together.
Haven't had a chance at a long shot yet.Shot a crow at close to 250 yards with my .22-250.
