PostSubject: Testing my Pistol & Lubes.   February 11th 2014, 2:17 pm

First up was my CVA Mountain Pistol .50cal at 20 yards. I did filed down the front sight to get its POI right under the bulls eye at 6 O' clock and it looks like I got it perfect. For the first shot that is. After that the POI seems to start drifting down a bit but grouping fairly well.

50 grains Sheutzen 2f
.490" round ball
.015" patch
TOW Mink Oil patch lube

First shot on a clean bore is just under the bullseye and almost center, the next 3 were on a dirty bore.


Wanting to see if it made a difference I switched to Mr Flintlocks patch lube and bore cleaner. Loading the ball was a little stiffer due to the previous 4 shots, but once seated, I shot and it grouped down there as well. I took one more shot " Recovered the patch as well!" and smiled brightly as the patch n ball combo slid right down like it was on a clean barrel. My smile really lit up once I checked the target.


3 patches with Mink oil, and the very top single patch was the last shot I fired and recovered that patch. Its good to see how CLEAN that patch is after 5 shots.


Pretty much sums it up for me from this point on. Mr.Flintlocks lube for target shooting is a must for my pistol in order to keep her shooting clean.

Nice shooting results! Been thinking of getting me a pistol but, haven't decided on what I want yet.

Nice shooting FG.  I wish BP pistols were legal to hunt deer with here in Massachusetts.  It certainly would be a fun challenge. 

 scratch  FG, maybe you should start a BP pistol section somewhere  Question  Question

That ball must be going very close to 850 fps with 50gr 2F.
