Trying them out in my Traditions St Louis Hawken .50cal 1:48 twist with 70gr Pyrodex P, .490" chilled lead round balls and .020" patch.

Awesome accuracy so far, but now I see the accuracy starting to drop off big time.

I figured since they were accuracy and easy to load like a soft lead ball, they would be great for rendezvous. Not the case as I have to have solid accuracy no matter how many shots I take.

Letting the rifle cool down for a bit before trying some more shots.

Cool down did not help! They simply just allow me 5 amazing shots and then they scatter all to hell.

Your rifle is hungry for soft lead ball.
