I am wanting to get into BP for this guy. I am really stuck on history, and this gun was shot its entire life as a black powder rifle....so I want to do that and see the difference. Amazing this gun is pretty clean, nice bore. Looks like it is going to rain all week, that means this weekend if I want to shoot I will have to drive to the club, or dig out a swamp buggy......my shooting area is really a flood area....There is a waterfall around where the steel sits at home. I am going to cut down each of the recipes a smidge and see what I am getting. I don't need to fling them that hard.....What I am working on is a good accurate round for a CMP match.....yea I want to shoot this thing in a cmp match.....I think it will be fun.....I so suck at that game as I am squirrel and then on to something else....Still need to shoot my carcano in a match. I bet I would get pretty good at one thing if I could just do one thing....just not the way I am wired.
