    Wink First World Problem: It happened again, thanks Dad!

    ADVERTISEMENT
    G70 3/8" chain link was the ultimate answer to my First World problem until this weekend when Dad missed the gong and hit a link dead center at the weakest spot with the 243.

    Oh well, it's always nice to have him around





    Cheers All

    What’s the bag limit. 243 enough gun for chain? But don’t use it on 1/2 chain.

    Can not help but to tell an old joke(story.... whatever)

    Drill sergeant takes bunch of new soldiers to a shooting range, to teach them proper shooting.
    They shoot all around ,missing bunch.
    Sargent gets mad-steps over to the closest rookie,grabs his gun,and says-I will show to all of You, how to shoot properly.
    Then he fires-and misses.
    He turns towards the rookies and says-This is how You bunch shoot.
    Then he fires again-and misses.
    He turns towards the rookies and says again-This is how You bunch shoot.
    Then after this scenario repeats 5 more times-He hits the target.,
    He joyfully turns towards the rookies and says-and this is how I SHOOT!!!!

    I was using 1/4" chain but it couldn't take the 45-70 and other calibers, so I looked online and 3/8" seems to be the best bet so far. The 22's disintegrate when they hit the gong.

    But that link was a dead-pan target a good marksman should have been able to put a .243 bullet through the center of the link. I recall having messed up like that with my .303 on a 50 cent piece size washer, back in my youth. Bro tossed the washer into the air for me to shoot at. When the bullet made contact with it, there was this resounding twang and the washer disappear into the blue. Of course, if the washer had drop to the ground out in front of us. I was on the ready, to offer the appraisal that the bullet must have passed through the hole in the center. That was my once in a lifetime shot, which I have never again attempted to duplicate. As a preamble to it, a bit earlier on bro had taken a bright shinny 50 cent piece I had out the air with his 44-40, but it took him three attempts to do it.
