PostSubject: Fired Patched Round Balls From .54 FireHawk   Sat 11 Jul - 13:45

This group was fired yesterday from 100 yards.

Gun: TC FireHawk. 54 caliber
Scope: Weaver Grand Slam set on 6X
Powder: 110 grains of Black MZ
Cap: Winchester #11
Bullet: Hornady round ball
Patch: Commercial
Lube: Outers Leathe R Seal

First round went high. The other four grouped nicely. Fouling was soft due to humidity: i did not swab between shots. Used 6 o'clock hold.

The action of this rifle is glass bedded. The barrel is floated.

i'm ready for OK deer season.

that's some damn excellent shooting! A 54cal is a great rifle when using patched balls. It's just so hard to beat the price of the ammo and how well it does when it smacks into flesh.
