Default Split the ball

haven't tried this in quite a while so i figured while i was messing around I would give it a try .
the goal is to hit the axe blade , split the ball and pop the ballons on both sides.
i actually got lucky and managed to pull it off the first shot .
the video isn't great as my son was recording on his phone and was zooming in and out at the wrong time
54 cal, GPR
.018 patch
.530. All
80 gr Black MZ
30-35 yards . I didnt measure just stepped it off

shooting offhand

Oh well it was something to do
