    We had some plates that were getting damage from the .300 win mag, but I'm pretty sure they were replaced. I've hit them with rifles running over 4000 fps shooting lighter bullets, and 100 grain bullets running 3400 fps with no damage.
    I've not researched the 28 nosler ballistics.
    The plates ^^^^ are on the 100 yard range. The plates on the 300 yd range where we will be shooting will not suffer damage at that distance.

    We did some recon yesterday in Tonkawa. We ate in town at Mary's. I had a Black and Blue Burger. It was an inch thick and tasty.

    So it appears June 6 is locked in as the preferred date with eats afterward at Mary's in Tonkawa. As we get a little closer so we can look at the weather we will look at a rain date if needed.
    The entrance road and range roads are all pretty much accessible no matter if it rains or not but if it's going to be a storm we don't want to be there under metal structures even though they are very well grounded.

    Picked up my new rifle last night. Looks like a damned anti-aircraft gun, lol. Sum***** is looooooooooong. I think the barrel ended up somewhere over 29". Gonna take 'er to the range today to get on paper. We boresighted the scope (borrowed one) last night, and then today I'll try to get a little closer.

    Looking forward to it.

    Is it weird that my rifles had their bags packed & ammo ready to go yesterday?
    They are more ready to go than me.

    Dennis, I can be there around 9 & can help you set stuff up if you need any help.

    Event is still on at 9am Saturday.
    We will meet at the front gate. Try to be early or on time so we don’t hold up those that are.
    If anyone has unforeseen circumstances,
    My number is 580-three 8 two-1 three 62.
    Profreedomokie and I will be out there this evening moving shooting benches and target stands.
