Not sure what happened to Solaris, hope we didn't miss you somehow?
I got there before most I think and was ready to go. Then saw the No FMJ sign. Crap. I had handloaded Sierra GameKings which are a FMJ round. Could not get home and back in any reasonable time. Glad you all had a good time. Place was packed with Cowboy shooters!
That's a shame. I brought my Garand and couldn't shoot it because the only ammo I have for it is FMJ. Oh well, next time Solaris. Maybe you could load some non-FMJ rounds or shoot a different rifle with non-FMJ rounds.

I also saw the crowd when first turning in and was glad to see, when getting closer, that they were over at the cowboy action area.

I had a last minute request from a close friend in dire straights to help move the last of her belongings out of her house, and could not come. Glad you all had a great time.

Solaris, neither the Gameking BTSP (boat tail soft point) nor Matchking BTHP (boat tail hollow point) are FMJ bullets and either would have been perfectly acceptable at a no-FMJ range.

I wish I could have come along but I knew that I'd be on-call this weekend. Next time, though :)

Correct, but I did not have those. I had GameKing #2115 FMJBT. Loaded, these look no different than Win 3130 FMJ or any other bulk FMJ round.

I learn something new everyday. I've never heard of a FMJ Gameking before.
