Hi.  I'm new to FM. Went "Black" a few years ago.Time to post.

I got this .45 CVA Kentucky kit in 1980. Got it finished last year. I wanted to sight it in the "old way" but could never find the bulls eye. So begging Boone and Crockett  to forgive me I used the laser. After some time in a dark garage with a file and hammer I came up with this.

This was at 30' off a rest. 6 O'clock hold. 25gr 3f, .440 Lee junk lead ball,T shirt patch, 50/50 bees wax/tallow lube.

The first three were high. Was very happy with the last five.

Lasers do get the job...well as far as getting one close. Great shooting at 30'....especially with a pistol.
I have a .30 caliber laser, but not one to fit my muzzle loaders. Do they make 12 and 20 ga versions?
