WCChapin | Is It “The Wiggler”? – The LEE TL309-230-5R in 300 Blackout
Putting a few 300 Blackout “Missiles” on target at Johnson’s Mosquito Ranch. Special thanks to my friend Mark Johnson for the camera work and a chicken dinner!
I messed up and left my GSL Multi-Cal suppressor at home on a different 300 Blackout, so these shots were fired unsuppressed.
Both Mark and I were fidgety from the attacking mosquitos – we hurried to get the shots downrange and spent a minimal amount of time downrange where the bugs were unbearable.
My 150 yard hold on the 8″ gong turned out to be a bit low – The 2 1/2 Mil holdover was just catching the bottom of the gong, and a couple broke the flanges off the T post support just below the target.
I did a poor job with the target review at 150 yards…the impacts at the top of the gong were actually from my Ruger Mark IV 22/45 Tactical shooting CCI Clean 22 Subsonic through a GSL Woodland suppressor. It’s amazing how well it shoots.
