I really like the idea here. I wish the rifle were just a little more in focus.

I'd say 150g 30-30 Could even be hollow points. The blurred background image of the rifle is excellent. The overall lighting is great. Top marks!

Not sure how the anti gun crowd will vote on this... But a very nice image. I like that you lit the image from the side, rather than head on. The bullets are nice and razor sharp. The rifle is soft enough not to compete, but clear enough to identify. Very nice work. As the owner of an early Model 94 Winchester, I also enjoyed this on yet another level. Good luck in the challenge.

the liberals will probably rail ya, but I like it, especially with the blurred rifle in the background. nice touch.

is that a Sharps rifle? .45-110 Cal? or some such?

well the rounds like narrower than a .45... maybe? hmmm. hard to judge size from the pic.

nice job.

Love the shot, but the white balance feels off. It's a little cold.

Lovely shot, nicely photographed, great lighting and even the border suits it very well. Should do very well!

sharp - fitting title. Nice bokeh on the winchester

it took me a while to figure out that it was a gun in the background

good light, good contrast, I would have perhaps liked to have seen more of the gun in the background, but you have done well.
