Came across this video so thought I'd put it up ...

Nothing special but you see Zulu weapons in use & a Martini-Henry blowing holes in bricks

And did you notice who was making the holes in the blocks?. I have to tell you Terry missed three times before he hit it. In the opening sequence I did four live rounds in ten seconds.

It is worth noting the load was not Black powder, but Sanadex a sucrose BP substitute, it was an unknown quantiity so I went sparing on the load, Smoke was the dissapointing thing, hardly any.

Just out of interest The range across where we were shooting was where the Utulwana ascended from the Buffalo to attack RD

Just to make you aware the link above is connected to an anti-virus software company. A message comes up saying your computer has a virus. Then its try’s to load software onto your computer. You will see a list of Trojans virus and critical errors messages
This is off course a hoax it’s a company trying to sell software that will do absolutely nothing apart from remove the messages ect.

If you agree to download the software and don’t proceed when it comes to the payment request. You will continue to get these annoying messages every time you log on.

This has happen to me, but I did not download the software. I just closed everything down and restarted the computer.

Please let me know if you have come across this when clicking on the link above.

I have not removed the link yet. Just in case it was just my computer.

Neill. Just out of interest how far was the target away. Because that was a mighty fine shot you did. I estimated about 1000 yards.

Chelmsford

Actually it was only about 120-130 as the crow fies, the camera was on full zoom, but the one for the actual impact shots were locked off near the target. As it was placed across a gulley you could not pace out, however the sight ladder was set at 100 yards, point of aim. We fired from the kneel, replicating a shot in open order or volley, I would expect to be more accurate lying or behind a bench or rest.

We did four shots, Terry skimmed it first time (if you note in the film he goes to take the first shot, I go "Pressure really on", mine was the next impact on the 6 ring (the black bull of the target is a PL7 or 150mm disc),

The block were not "breeze" ash blocks, but cast concrete, they weighed around 30lbs, the bullet went clean through two of them.
