    Hello guys, I've been busy these weeks, I am finishing a new project at SQM (lithium company) and the rounds of BCG I hope it will keep me free of cancer, next Monday the last round, a bit annoying but I tolerate it well ... however didn't forget the practice in the spare time, this can this afternoon, lots of fun :D, I hope you are all doing well far far away from the virus
    cheers

      Good to hear you’re on the mend and healing up Arturo, hope that continues Sir.

      I must say that is a gorgeous Conus, what kind of wood ?

      Great to see you back on the shooting range and sharing a picture with us. That looks like a new Conus? Or at least one that we have not seen?

      Beautiful work on the can top. Still trying to learn how to do it that well. I did get some 7/16 ammo, but haven't clean cut the can top center yet. You are always setting goals for us wanna bees! :):):)

      Hello Monroe, that's the wide gap Samurai, it is the same initially modded just added the same gap slope of the fork tips. I cut the can only to obtain the top piece, there is when the fun starts :D ... smaller is target better, I change the can when completely hollowed, lasts more shoots and you miss more hahaha
