one-ounce loads was a wise decision. They work very well for targets out to 22/23 yards.


??????? Huh :? I just use 1 oz all the time and have broken targets well past 23 yards,gotta disagree big time on that statement.

Thanks again for all of the great suggestions. I just finished reading the suggested post on gun fit - excellent information - thank you!

Regarding my headache - it actually happens immediately - after my first 2 shots with select O/Us. I have read where some suffer from a headache later in the day or the next day - but that is not my issue. And this is a very strong, sudden, acute headache. It's not hurting my face - but the back of my head. And I don't think this is related to the sound (I'm a handgun shooter and always wear extensive ear protection) - it doesn't happen with a semi.

I'm going to work with my instructor this weekend and make sure my mount is correct. But I suspect I will be purchasing a semi soon. I am loving this too much and really want to learn. I don't want the discomfort of the gun to affect my ability to enjoy this new sport!
