Well, I've got to shoot SOMETHING for centrefire, so I'll join you. Mine's only a 327 Federal, though, so the bullets may just drop and hit the floor before they get to the target... :)
Missed this the first time. Nice. Even if they don’t fall to the ground they’ll probably just bounce off paper, right?

They usually do. Some of the wadcutters barely make it out of the barrel....

Cool! I may be doing the centerfire portion with my GP100 as well. :) I shouldn't give away a competitive advantage here, but I found that factory wadcutters are generally more accurate than FMJ .38 Spc. out of the GP. ;)

Good luck! :yahoo:

Heh! Yeah - the wadcutters are more accurate for sure, but the 32 ones are slow as molasses. My GP100 was sighted in at 10 yards, but was hitting to POA at 25.

Wow. The ones I was shooting were like a pea shooter- I think they were running about 740 fps. Mighty lazy, but they sure fly true and make scoring easy. The GP is such a beefy gun as it is, with those wadcutters it had all the recoil of .22lr out of a Ruger MK...

I'm relatively new to revolvers. After this conversation and reading up on wadcutters, I'll definitely be sending some down range next time out.

Revolvers are neat. Totally different thing than firing a semiautomatic, in my inexperienced opinion. Wadcutters are a hoot- the target looks like someone went at it with one of those hole punch tools. There are some semiautos that shoot wadcutters, too: Smith and Wesson Model 52 comes to mind- It shoots 38 Spc. wadcutters and the one I shot was the most accurate pistol I've ever shot. Simply amazing. Too rich for my budget, though. :)

I shot semis in 22, but don't have a centrefire semi that I trust at 50 ft.
All my handguns will do 50 ft easy as pie. I'm the weak link.

Well shake it up now, Sugaree. I'll meet you at the Jubilee.
And if that Jubilee don't come, maybe I'll meet you on the run.

Heh! Perhaps I should have specified "... that I trust myself to shoot accurately at 50 ft...." :D

Stuck with the plan and shot my 4" GP100 with .38 spl wadcutters. I love that combo. Wish I had actually shot the stages as practice. I had dry fired the stages to get the timing down, but would have benefited from shooting that distance under the time pressure once or twice before scoring it.
Hoping to do the CF tomorrow, with a 4" GP100 shooting .32 S&W Wadcutters. :)

Cool that you guys are using wadcutters! I wanted to do the same with my GP 100, but I took advantage of being at the range and shot with what I had since I didn't know if I'd have another chance before the first. Good luck!

Honestly, the 32 H&R magnums are more accurate, but they're over 75 cents a bang, so this would be an expensive match..... :D
