PostSubject: BH209 & Scoped Inlines   August 6th 2017, 4:09 pm

Just amazes me at how easy they are to sight in and go. I put a scope on a CVA Wolf so my friend has a back up rifle in case something with his GPR goes wrong. I keep asking him to come over and order parts and that hasn't happened yet. Rifle is almost finished, but the sights are terrible.

Anyway, I mounted the scope months ago and got a chance to shoot it today. First shot, center, but 4" to the left. Took one more shot, clipped the first. Adjusted, took a shot, bam! Right in the center.

Packed up and walked to my 100 yard range and took a shot and dead on! Then I noticed I was using the 50 yard reticle! Evil or Very Mad  damn scopes are packed with that BDC stuff you got to watch out!

Took another shot and was hitting close to 2" high using the 100 yard cross hair. Adjusted 8 clicks down and right on the money! Egged out the bull hole I was using as a bulls eye.

Just a real lazy day of sighting in and shooting. I was so relaxed that after getting the rifle dialed in with 6 shots, I kept loading and shooting, and ended up blasting a total of 13 rounds down range!

I used 90gr Blackhorn209, .501" 250gr Thor, CCI 209 Magnum primers.

Rifle still shoots sweet after all these years. Just no longer my style. But great to have on hand for others!

Sounds like a great day!

I enjoy shooting just about anything.  Seems each has its place and special attributes.  I'd like to get a slug gun and shoot some1 1/4 oz chunks of lead.  Don't need one and likley won't part with money. But there you have it!

"I used 90gr Blackhorn209, .501" 250gr Thor, CCI 209 Magnum primers."

That's the same load I used in my Sile Hawken yesterday but I didn't want to shoot more Thors than absolutely necessary due to their cost and availability.
Mine shot the first one 5" left with a clean, oiled barrel. The next two were almost touching 1" to the right of the bullseye at 100 yards. I hadn't changed the sights since I had been shooting a 260 PT Gold with a crushrib sabot.

I shouldn't be shooting at more than 110 yards so I'm not touching a thing.

It usually take me several shots to get in the bull.  I always try the "two shot method", 1. shoot the first shot, 2. hold the rifle tight with the cross hairs back on the bull, 3. then adjust the scope's cross hairs to the first bullet hole you shot. 4. shoot again and you should be sighted in.   "Never seems to work out in 2 shots".   Very Happy   Always a little more "fine tuning".

While I do enjoy the effectiveness of my "scoped-inlines", I reel myself back every year to low-tech, traditional hunting.  It's hard to beat flint-locking (or stick bows) to re-instate that challenge.

Is it hard to get genuine black powder where you live?

All shops around here quit carrying it when haz-mat became an issue years ago.

I got lucky and bought a mixed case of f grades of Goex, Elephant, and Swiss.

Still have enough left for my lifetime.

Powderinc.com used to sell as little as 5 pound lots if your willing to pay haz-mat.

I went in with several others to split a case and I fronted the money.

They ALL backed out! Go figger.

So I have enough for my lifetime and my kids lifetimes.

Got over 30 one pound cans left.

I do the same and then lots of fine tuning too. Rolling Eyes

Most need more than two shots, they don't mention that. Then there are the ones that never get close to being on target and count on several shots to get their game or end up with lost wounded game animals. :tdown2  again "they never mention that."

1. Shoot at 25 yards.
2. Adj. scope to bullet hole while keeping it centered on bullseye.
3. Shoot at 100 yds.
4. Cuss, shoot again and cuss again.
5. Try another weight of powder and start all over.  No Dunno



Actually, it's easier with a bolt gun or inline because you can bore sight it before the first shot. I never have too much trouble sighting in the scope. It's getting the most accurate load that takes all the time and all the shooting. I go in 5 gr. increments and try to be consistent in every other step. However, I'm impatient and don't usually wait for the barrel to cool so I have to fine tune the scope next time out.

I may try some of those one size fits all 300gr third later today. Been itching to try them and see what they clock on the chronograph. Got a new one btw. IIt's the new caldwell chronograph. Seems to be accurate and well built.

That's good Jon.  I'm shooting the Barnes Expander MZ 300 grainer.   Your chrono report should give me an idea of what my bullet is doing.  When I get to the range I'll check with my chrono too.
