Patched Round Balls Fired From .54 Inline Empty

Range:       50 meters. 
Gun:          TC  Fire Hawk .54 caliber, 1/38" twist barrel
Powder:      Black MZ
Patch:         Drill cloth
Cap:           CCI magnum #11
Lube:          Frontiers Anti-Rust And Patch Lube

This gun shoots patched round balls pretty well.   But only with one powder load, 90 grains of Black MZ.   80 grains makes huge groups at 50 meters as does 100 grains.   The three shot group with the pink Xs was fired with 100 grains of powder.   The six shot group was fired with 90 grains of powder there was one flyer, under the pink arrow. 

This rifle is sighted in for 100 grains of Black MZ powder and the .452, 330 grain hard cast bullet.  i don't want to change that. 

After the patched round balls i fired three rounds of the 330 grain hard cast bullet using 100 grains of Black MZ.   The third shot was low under the pink arrow again.    i climbed up the stock too far and got lightly tapped with the scope.   Not sure that caused the flyer though.
