    Bobby Hoyt barrel.

The company promises better groups, especially for problem barrels and I've got one. My 1/48 54 shoots PRBs pretty good but doesn't like minnies or maxxies . Rifling looks good...

    Old guy newbie

    I joined about a week ago so the way I operate I'm just in time to say howdy to you good folks. I don't have a lot of smoke poles, a Remington New army 44, a TC 54 New Englander and one unmentionable that is just not as fun. I love my side hammer and love reading your posts. Left Montana 34...
