Went to the range with my new Green Mountain barrel that I purchased from a member of this forum. It's a 50 cal drop-in for TC Hawken.  Wow!!! What a shooter. I put the barrel in a Renegade stock and shot round ball from 50 yds. with 75 and 90 gr. of Triple 7.

The balls were Hornady .490 and the patches measure about .018. I'm new to this muzzleloading stuff and still learning.

Nice to see that barrel is shooting good for you. Those GMB are shooters for sure. I still have one in a 58 cal and it is very accurate. Al

Glad you're happy with the barrel. Were you shooting offhand or from a bench?

I would play around with the powder load. The barrel is capable of tighter groups unless you were shooting offhand.

No, shooting from a rest.
I will try Goex next and see what that does. I'm just getting started with this.

Good man. We love real black powder here. It's dirty and smelly, but so was my old girl friend.
