80gr shuetzen! No recoil at all really, very comfortable load. 90-100 grains is where it should be for accuracy.

Looks good, would you build another of the same kit or go in a different direction?

I'd easily do the same build. The cva hawken IMO is the best rifle to build off of due to all the calibers and barrel lengths easily available from deer creek. I have to call DC for prices on some parts,but my next build may be either a 32 - 36 or 46cal hawken.

Jon,
My rifle really stands out in the sun light. Jon once again you did a fantastic job in building that CVA Hawken. I won't be able to turn my back on it at the range for too long. The stain makes the grain jump right out at you. She's going to be my hunting rifle next season so that gives me the opportunity to fondle her all summer long and enjoy every minute of it.  t up 



Ray.............  Wink

First up, .562" round ball, .020" patch, 80gr 2f Schuetzen powder @ 50 yards.



I tried 90gr which will be shown in the picture below and it reacted the same way my 58 likes it, Not good at all LOL. I won't bother with the .562" ball Ray, The 2 shots in the bulls eye are proof that this .58 is like mine and loves the tighter ball!

.575" ball, .015" patch lubed with mr flintlocks patch lube. Ray, The .570" ball with a .018 - .020" will be PERFECT.

AWESOME Jon  Exclamation  Exclamation  Exclamation You got that baby right on   Shooter  I've got the .570 R/B's and .018 lubed patches so I'll be ready for the range.
Those primers and patches are in good shape also. No residue, clean and in one piece.  Cool Let me know when you send it and the tracking number.  bounce  bounce  bounce 


Thanks Jon,
Ray............. t up (You did one hell of a job. That rifle will be the high light of my collection).

You're gonna have fun shootin' that smoke pole hawg.   It's bound to come sooner or later on that beauty, but just remember that first scratch or scuff mark from hunting will give it some character.  Wink
