went to the range today with my dad (the one behind the camera:34:) mainly to shoot skeet. But we got quite caught up in trying to capture the m38's fireball with his new camera and only 3 out of 194 pictures and 5 videos captured the fireball.



If you look closely a little bit behind the muzzle brake you can see a tiny little flame.





Some Steel cores I collected also a .357 magnum and some Brass cased heavy core 54r (bulgarin, headstamp 10 over 55, yellow tip) which cycled VERY well, and the one on top of those is a copper washed steel core heavy ball.

Some videos

I wasen't really trying to aim in this one, I was just shooting for the sake of shooting(and for the fireball).

BTW, The m9130 that have the ler scope on the dove tail did not move when I fired it. also I did not bother sighting it in, I'll save that for another day.

I also noticed that right-handed bolt didn't seem to slow you down, zephri. I'm left-handed, but I've always shot right-handed anyway. Doing the little "make a circle with your finger and thumb, bring it in looking through it and see which eye it goes to" test says my right eye is dominant anyway, but I wonder if that might be just because I trained it up to be dominant, by using it consistently.

Thank you for the pics and videos. It's the next best thing to being out there ourselves...

If you want to see a large fireball try using the Czech. 7.62x54r white tip.
It only has a 44.8gr projectile, it's out the end of the barrel long before all the powder burns results in a big flash.
It is good for scaring the .22 plinkers off the range:laughing:

Nice videos, and way to crank those rounds. Ya gotta love that (brass) Bulgarian for easy cycling. Did you hit the target, or just scare the heck out of everyone there?:)

Fireballs and big noise are two of the reasons we love M44's and M38's. Noticed you are using an extra butt pad... smart move.

nighthawk80 I'm shooting at the wilbur wright DNR range In New Castle. It's a free range which is why I go there.

Geo m44 I wasn't really trying to aim In some of those pics, but all of the rounds hit the target back board which is a yard and a half long, Although some of them bounced at the targets feet and hit the targets face:09:
