    So am I hahaha, I just topped off my 74cf tank and set my RegMan regulator to 2900 psi so all shots with the different ammo will be the same psi.

    So I put the Aztec Emerald 5.5-25 on it with the LaserWorks rangefinder so I can see how that works on coyote size targets, right now I have a nice size pumpkin on the lake at 60 yards and that will be my temporary zero until I get a frame made for my Elmers Board and shoot n see targets, then I can get it dialed in all the way but for now I just want to shoot it.

    Went to set up chrono, opened the door and it’s a Southern wind and it’s fricken cold, blows right inside so I’ll see what tomorrow brings being it’s just to windy and cold to have the door open, I need to get some styrofoam insulation and put in the door when it’s open, if the wind was out of any other direction it would be just fine but south doesn’t cut it, I’m not that tough plus I don’t want to freeze the inside of my home.

    At least I’ll get to see if it all holds air.

    Hahaha popcorn will be fine today and no way my heater would of helped, I need to get a sheet of styrofoam insulation and make a filler for the door when open on windy days or I could of shut the heat off and put on my snowmobile clothes, well at least I’m ready to shoot today.

    This is the very 1st ammo shot out of this bulldog so I still need to shoot it more then do another chrono test after I have shot a few hundred rounds through it.

    Wind hasn’t quit changed all the way yet but I did do three 5 shot strings being 5 shots of 81.02, 110gr HP, 130gr HP. Needless to say I forgot to connect my iPad to digital link so I hand wrote the numbers for this short COLD test. After a couple clicks on the scope all shots hit pumpkin at 60 yards so the accuracy is there just need a better target to zero in. I would of re wrote it but naaawww it’s readable.

    Should add that the NSA 110gr are Hollow Points and the 130gr Varmint Knockers are Hollow Points also and the JSB 81.02s we’re right out of the tin.

    The Bulldog shot just fine and wasn’t to loud but if I was going to shoot it in a back yard I’d definitely go with a Ronin or Emperor on it, all I put on was the Pitbull Long Moderator which for outdoor range shooting is just fine without ear protection, I was shooting it indoor to the outdoor target and it was ok even though I was right next to a china hutch and kinda I’d the corner of the room so the noise was probably amplified a bit more then if I was more in the center of the room, the Bulldog will definitely stay with me now and it will be a good medium size game getter, can’t wait to get it out to the range and start shooting AR500 plates out to 100 yards.

    Forgot.

    JSB 81.02gr were 154 fpe.

    NSA 110gr hp were 160 fpe.

    Varmit Knockers 130gr hp were 179 fpe.

    Just a little more fill pressure and the 130 grain will give you a better shot string . 

    "Swage ammo really does give excellent shot string numbers" . Tomorrow I will have 

    another 357 mold from MP Mold it's a .358 that's a  93 grain hollow point it will probally

    cast out at 98-99 grain with my lead mixture , I want to see what it will do in a stock Bulldog .

    More then likely I’ll turn up the regulator to 3000 psi and give them all another go and see how much the numbers change.

    Right now I also have some .357 slugs that a member sent me because he didn’t need them, think they are MrHollowpoints but not sure, I’ll try them in the spring out at my range under better weather conditions being I only have a certain amount of each gr and I’ll have regulator set at 3000 to give them the full monty, I normally shoot all my airguns 100 psi under max pressure don’t know why but I do. Here are those slugs I got from a member here.

    At first I though HOLY CRAP! those low ES and SDs for an unregulated gun?

    Then I scrolled up and saw your REGULATED TETHER set up!

    So how do you like the Ping? (Actually LACK OF)…

    It’s nicer to shoot that’s for sure but if you really listen you can still hear a faint PING but it’s drawn out and really really light, don’t think you would hear it 3ft away, it’s like it’s letting you know it used to be there but I just started shooting it so more then likely it will fade away as it gets broke in as they say.

    Hopefully when I do shoot them I’ll remember to turn on my Bluetooth hahaha but for now I’m just going to be enjoying shooting 44.75’s.
