righto!Ya buddy,Nothing like it. After spending some time with it- It’s Not difficult to hit accurate. Just gotta focus on front sight through the process.
and then along comes a rifle that shoots so well from the first flash of the primer that a less knowledgeable person would think I was a capable shot!
I shot the .45 TMR again today just to see if the shooting at 150 yards the other day was a fluke. once again it shot so good i kinda expected something to break. things were going too well.
next time any of you guys see me I will be doing my Charlton Heston impression. and shouting "from my cold dead hands!" this one is a keeper.
after the TMR, i got out my Ardesa .54 to see what my new lube mixture would do. shot 24 consecutive shots, no swabbing, just a felt patch under my lubed Maxie's. if i could only remember what all i put in the lube!
anyway, the Ardesa .54 shot about 1.75 inch at 65 yards. paper plates from lunch were donuts when i finished.
also introduced a guy to BP muzzleloaders. he is a shooter of them other things, with his normal range starting at 1000 yards.
loaned him a t post driver and he came by to return it.
saw him eyeballing the Ardesa and asked if he had ever shot a muzzleloader. Nope. he left with the normal grin of a newbie that is hooked.
now to get him to commission a rifle!
