A little tip for that type target. Don't shoot AT the Bull. Shoot for Perfect Center. I used my sons' .50 cal Hawken as it it a little lighter and easier for me to hold steady right now, April I'll try my .54 Lancaster, again. The Hawken sites (front post with ball top and rear flat top edge and dipped round groove) are made for that type target. I had targets from MyTargets.com. That type I had #1 and #2. I shot #2 ( Had a black circle around the bull) and had to get the #4 for the match and re-shoot that one. But when there are crossed marks (Vertical and Horizontal) the cross apex is at dead center. Place the horizontal target line on the top flat edge of the rear site. Then run the vertical line down through the center of the dropped groove of the rear site while placing the top (sight Ball) of the front site at the Apex of the lines and squeeze the trigger; shot is centered. Just practice that if those are the sites and target configure you're using. It's not that hard. This was one of the Greybeard Lessons I rec'd over the years. My Lancaster rear site is almost the same but I have a thicker blade front site. I need to run the vertical line through the center of the front site while it's centered in the deep groove. Each shooter needs to develop their own sighting Picture and work it; over and over and over again.Then you become more consistent in squeezing the trigger the first and every time the sites meet the target. I feel sorry for all those members who don't have time to shoot once a month with us.
Sound wisdom. The more I shoot, the more I get out of the whole black powder thing.

Logcutter, we did okay. I'm glad the winners were way ahead of us so we don't feel bad about missing by just a point or two. Great shooting everyone. It was a fun shoot.

Thanks for showing the way, Ames. Sorry, bout making you wait for me to get my target in. That target with the black ring made it easier to shoot. shooting the correct target was a wee bit harder to see, but easier to keep the group tight. Good shooting partner. Good fun had and nice to see y'all making smoke and holy paper!. Like the idea of partners and I'll be sending a suggestion or couple for contest to the person of the month, our Judge, Adui! Thank you SIR. Family stuff keeps poppin' up to hold me off the range. Hoping the next 8 days I can get it in. My better half has a BD this week. I'll work around that. I got Lorraine out of the safe space, and plan on using her to spit lead again.
