My brother did some reloading for this one and got the charge down to 18 grains 3f and recoil is very light. I told him to keep it easy on powder to prevent the frame from stretching. Its just a little target gun made to put smiles on your face.

Me shooting at 10 yards and you can see the orange block target falling off the log.


I also filled a bottle with water and shot it, I found the bullet 3 feet behind the bottle!

Compared to my 58cal that I recovered from 150 yards today.

If that's not a blackened brass frame, you should be able to give it a bigger charge if everything is tight on the gun.
