With a process of Shoot....file....tap I'm finally getting this Hawken to shoot where I'm pointing it. I've got the rear sight regulated for windage pretty well and using a 6 o/clock hold on this piece of tape you can observe where the shots are hitting. This is with 90 grs. KIK 2F powder. With 100 grs. of same powder at 50 yards the POI will be 5-6" higher which is what I desire. I may have to take the front sight down just a bit more! I'll find out tomorrow weather permitting. cheers Wink I also fired these rounds with NO wiping!

Wow your eyes are better than mine. I doubt I could even see tape good enough to even shoot a group that good at 60 yards. Al

Called meaning he "called" the shot being pulled off target. You know when you shoot and exactly after the rifle goes off... Ahhhhh! I pulled that one a bit.

I believe the rifle shoots good enuff to kill a nice buck this coming September during the ML season in Kansas! I hunted there last season for six days, saw probably 25-30 bucks but never touched the trigger! I'm kinda 'picky' about what I shoot! The grandkids usually provide us with the meat we need! This is what we'll be doing real soon:

Sharpsman, what is your recipe for frying wild turkey breast? I have fried the whole domestic turkeys but have never tried the wild breast.

Thanks
Glenn
