Cool
Recently, I had Jonathan swap out the rear sight for me and here are the results. The range was getting busy so I didn't get in all my shooting like I had planned but there's a few more week ends before I leave. 
I was only able to shoot at the 25 and 50 yard benches today but I'll get to the 75 and 100 soon. The load today was changed from 85 grains to 90 grains and like Jonathan told me, the hawken loves that load and you'll see why.
So it's 90 grains 2F with a .570 ball, .015 patch w/mink oil and CCI Magnum caps. I did try a .018 pillow ticking with mink oil and at this time I'm staying with the .015's.


1st target are the first 3 shots at the 50. I then went to the 25 to check out the rise, if any. As you can see, at the 25 the rifle is dead nutz........All 3 shots in the same hole...............Low left is the last shot I took using a .018 patch. For now I'm sticking with the .015 's with mink oil. THANKS JONATHAN cheers cheers This rear sight is great...... 75 and 100 is next time out.....
That's the same target I used at the 50. I covered the holes. There's actually 4 holes in the bull. 1 from the 50 and 3 from the 25.
Ray............. t up
BEWARE ALL YOU SMOKELESS, SABOT LESS, KNURL GROOVING SHOOTERS. SIDE LOCKS ARE COMING OUT OF THE DARK SIDE.....
Don't tell anyone but I think my new spes had a lot to do with it...... Wink
