PostSubject: THE LAST DANCE   April 29th 2015, 6:03 pm

Well took her out for one last dance today, and like she has done all these years she did not let me down. Shot four different bullets thru it, they were the Barnes TEZ 250. Barnes SOCOM 300. FTX 300, and 250. the charges were 10/50 4759/4198, and I only use this charge on the first three shot on the first target, the other one was a single charge of 65.gr. 4198. Was trying ti give Dave s tarting point and a single charge to use. You will also see a pic of what this BP looks like taken apart for cleaning. The items to the right of the BP are the carbide bushing and the nut that holds in place, and the bushing will last a looong time. Also a pic of the BP back together ready to install and the lube I use for sizing. Here are some stats.
Primers used were WIN.
POWDER USED WAS IMR 4198, BOOSTER 4759
 FIRST THE TEZ WITH THE 10/50 DUPLEX, AVERAGE SPEED WAS 2475 FPS
 SECOND THE TEZ SINGLE CHARGE 65 GR. 4198, AVERAGE SPEED WAS 2647 FPS
THIRD THE SOCOM 300 GR. AGAIN SINGLE CHARGE, AVERAGE SPEED WAS 2561 FPS
FOURTH THE FTX 300 GR. SINGLE CHARGE, AVERAGE SPEED WAS 2529 FPS
THE LAST BULLET USED WAS A 250 FTX AND THE AVERAGE SPEED ON A SINGLE CHARGE WAS 2650 FPS

The targest are label except the black one which were the FTX 250 gr.
As you see from the pic she is clean and ready to go.  All I have to say is GOODBY OLD GIRL, and you are going to a good home. Dave she is all yours, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.

Looks like she likes 250 gr. bullets better than 300s.

Shooter

Great shooting as usual Carlos. Those groups are great. Any shooter would be happy with those results from any one of the bullets. Like I said before, it's in your blood and believe me, it's not your last DANCE............. Shooter

Great shooting Carlos.  She looks great and shoots. That's my favorite color laminate.

Great shooting Carlos.  A question from the sunny side:  Is the best shooting smokeless muzzleloader you've shot more accurate than the best shooting Blackhorn 209 muzzleloader you've shot?  250 yards and under is the range.  Just wanted to know from someone who has shot both extensively.

Carlos, Is the bushing a .030 or .040 and which one do you prefer?

Scott I believe when I asked him it was a .030 bushing...I was asking on Dougs about bushing size and cold weather...I was told either size will work and both will go bang ..thing was some say that 4198 will  slip into the .040 bushing..but no biggy..Cole suggested I do the .030 bushing since I wont be doing duplex loads...just straight 4198...Hillbill told me the same...he may just open the flame channel a bit more

Sorry about being late for the last dance, was called into work early and just got home to catch up on the reading. 
Carlos, Great shooting and thank you very much for what you have done, It has/will help me a lot for all the info that you have gathered for me. 
Everyone, he will be checking it out one more time, and making sure that I am taking good care of it in Dec. when he comes to Iowa to deer hunt, and if everything works out, he will be in the same field when I get that big one that he came to shoot.
Thank you

Dave

Tony to answer your question, Yes. The any of my smokeless will run rings around the best ML that I ever shot hands down, all the way out to 250 and beyond, and beauty is that it will also shoot the BH 209. So you have the best of both worlds.

The bushing I have in this gun is a .030. The bushing in the 458 is a .040 bushing. As far as which one I prefer, it would be the .030 bushing.
