(honorable mention 'cause he shot at 50 yards)RC 4 and 22/16ths (??? I'm confused) at 50 yards with a smoothbore!
Bakeoven Bill (gets another honorable mention for bringin' something different) 5.187" with a Lepage flint dueling pistol, open, PRB
Swamp Rat 7.234" New England style .58, open, PRB

Thanks to everybody who played. :hatsoff:

If I forgot to put anybody's score in, just let me know. I didn't delete anything yet. :haha:

Just to be accurate, I should have listed Bakeoven Bill ahead of RC 'cause 4 22/16 is really 5.375". But it was late and it's been a long week for me. And that whole 22/16ths thing threw me off... But then maybe I shoulda divided by 2 since RC shot at 50 yards... :hmm:
:hatsoff:

Sorry Jethro, forgot to list what rifle I shot this contest with. :bow: It is my "Ugly Rifle", an old CVA percussion Mountain Rifle that had a bad barrel, so I rebarreled it with a 15/16" Green Mountain .40 cal. barrel (heavy - but a good shooter with good "hang"). It has T.C. Contender open sights and I used a .400" round ball. :v I just need to learn to quite waiting till the last day, was a little windy here, but that's my fault. Thanks for the opportunity to participate, and congrats to all that was in it. :hatsoff:

See ya, Jim :thumbsup:
