Trapdoor and silhoutte

Post by ian45662 » Sat Aug 30, 2014 6:34 am

Anyone here trying out trapdoors in the silhouette game? Any tips for me as I would like to give it a go. I will be using the standard buffington sights. My blow tube will not fit in the chamber so I was thinking I will just wipe in-between shots. My ammo will be loaded the same way spence wolf has laid out in his book. Anyone tried annealing their brass for trapdoor use (Winchester brass)?

I shoot a trapdoor in 40-65,to make the blowtube work I take the rim of the case off
on the end of your blowtube. I think thats better than wiping when shooting silhoutte.
