Yes, guns have been hurting paper for years.

For example, my PTR 91 (which I lost in a tragic ice fishing accident on Lake Mille Lacs) made these nasty holes at 100 yards with WOLF steel ammo and a Leopold 1x4 scope...how mean!

What holes have you come across?

Paper plate on an old empty refrigerator cardboard box; 30/06 jacketed boat tail; 1000 verified feet away; 3 out of 3 shots on paper; couldn't even see the plate and barely the box without the scope; in the Grand Junction, CO desert north of town; long long time ago; and no pics, sorry. Couldn't shoot my own foot nowadays; I'm over the hill; way over; end of story; and true.

Took my 8 year old son out again. He loves 300blk subsonic and really put a hurtin' on the paper.

In no time, he will be better than his old man. It is great to train gun safety and good habits at a young age.

I lost this rifle while on a cruise on Lake Superior.

I've killed my share of paper but for a few years enjoyed killing innocent clay pigeons. I was competing in local tournaments to do this dastardly act!

Lots of dead paper here and from many years as a WTO for the NY Prison system. I have a 50 yard target right out the back door and a nice bench set up so I can shoot any time I want to.

Nice - what a cool deal to have your own range.

Here are some-more holes. The one on top was my wife's first time shooting an AR-15 and her first time shooting a rifle in 7 years.

I'm jealous of people that can shoot in their own yard, I have to go 3 miles off-shore. It is added fun though, timing the waves and sight picture on my target.

Wish I had a range at my residence but I have a great range nearby. The range provides all forms of pistol, rifle and shotgun shooting. This makes it fun to go there but it can be very busy at times.

Golly, do I ever enjoy letting cardboard breath a little better :p

Anyone ever use the new R.I.P. rounds? I purchased some in 9mm a few weeks back, but rather than test them, I'd rather hold onto them for emergencies.

What a great idea! -

You looked very smooth / natural shooting and reloading that shot gun - nice!
