well i have had my Gremlin from Bob Fionda now for 2 weeks, at first i kept it unbanded for collections sake, but that did not last long! it just kept calling to me, i put it in a drawer to silence it, went to make a snack and found it staring at me in the cupboard? i knew at that point i had to shoot it or perhaps fall to its "gremlin's mojo" so to do it justice i pulled out a set of Nathans double thera gold bandsets. i was reluctant to shoot it because i did not want to muck up the finish, but it needed to be shot, i began with 3/8' steel it shoots well, accurate as any i have, but the ss was calling for more, so i dug my .44cal lead from BH and took a few shots with the lead, missed the first 2 times, my targets are small since my shooting distance isnt as far as most of yours, but on my third shot i hit, now i know why lead is for hunting! the .44 is almost identical in size to the 3/8' steel, but the steel when it hits my little hanging key just make it bounce around, this is 1 hit with the lead................. huge difference............... good shooter Bob, thanks again
