    My 2020 Oregon Mule deer

    Yeah that winter a few years ago really did damage to the mule deer. Then last year blue tounge wiped out a ton of whitetail! We were in the Flatiron unit. I've never been anywhere near the Fort Rock unit

    My 2020 Oregon Mule deer

    Thanks everyone! Idaho Ron, I read your story, very impressive! Russelshaffer, I don't know on the weight, 150 lbs maybe? We were northeast oregon, not quite far enough east to be near the snake river though.

    My 2020 Oregon Mule deer

    I was lucky enough to put down a nice public land oregon buck in mid-October. I spotted him early on the second morning, and made a plan to get ahead of him as he headed towards where I thought he might be going to bed for the day. I dropped down off my glassing location, and got to where I...

    Help picking a 54 conical mold

    No my fault, I just reread your post, and your referring to Minnie conicals that are hollow based correct?

    Help picking a 54 conical mold

    Yeah I expect to get some of those responses . My goal is to find a conical that bucks the wind better than my roundball. Where I hunt can get very windy, and I don't want to have to "Kentucky windage" as much or at all if possible. I didn't think the REALS were hollow based, I'll look into them...

    Help picking a 54 conical mold

    Hey guys. Last year I worked up a great round ball load for my 54 GPR. This year I'm interested in trying conicals out of it to see how they shoot. I understand the rifling is designed for round ball, but from my research guys have gotten good accuracy with some conicals with the 1/60 rifling...

    My 2019 oregon elk hunt

    This was my first year ever elk hunting with a muzzloader. I've been deer hunting with a muzzloader for 10 years and usually bowhunt elk, but decided to cash in my points for a muzzloader elk hunt. Knowing I would draw the tag, I spent the last 2 years developing a load, and practicing like...

    Bigger round balls or thicker patches?

    I went with a bigger ball and stayed with the same thickness patch. S time people say use the biggest ball you can without having to pound it to get it started. The theory being that the bigger ball will seal the load better than a smaller ball with a thicker patch. It also engages the rifling...

    Lyman GPR Sights

    Yeah I believe it did. If anything I'm more consistent, which means more accurate

    Trajectory question

    My 54 with a 535 ball and 85 grains of 3f hits 2-3 inches high at 50 and center at 100. No idea of velocity, doesnt matter to me. Haven't shot out past 100 but plan to shoot 125 to check drop. I'm guessing it will be 3-4 inches low

    Sling attachment

    Update. Received the sling attachments today. The clamp on section fits perfect, but be careful. The small Allen head screw you use to attach it is soft metal and will round very easily (trust me on this) so be careful when tightening. The butt stock stud needed a bigger hole drilled in the...

    Sling attachment

    Midway USA was the cheapest, $15. I went to the mikes website to find the model for the proper width then ordered

    Sling attachment

    Thanks guys! I ordered a set today that fit the width of my ramrod holder. Should be a good fit, thanks!

    Sling attachment

    I'm looking into adding a sling to my GPR. I have looked at a few slings that slide off/on, but don't think I can use the gun with it on since my front sight sits fairly low. I was thinking of replacing the screw on the bottom of my butt stock that holds the metal butt plate on with a sling...

    Wind drift?

    Unfortunately where I shoot there are no trees. Next time I'm going to bring a broom stick and attach flagging tape to it to see the wind at the target. Thanks for your info it sounds like the drift I was experiencing is about right given the wind
