So after putting the 10-40x50 scope on it i took it and shot it at 100yds 200yds 300yds and 370yds. Yes 370yds for a muzzleloader. I wanted to see how this thing was going to shoot. After getting it on paper i fired 2 shots in a group at 100 when my brother came and i asked him if he wanted to shoot it so he shot the last shot in the group. I put some pressure on him cause the first two were touching but his shot went right through the first two.
200yds 3 shot
300 yds 4 shot
it was kinda funny cause i shot my first 3 shots at 300 but almost could not belive it so i shot another one just to see and by gosh it landed right there with the other ones. Boy was i happy.
370 3 shots
it was starting to get dark but i was able to make out the target pretty good however i would have liked to put another one down range to see if the last shot ( bottom one) was a fluke or possibly me.
I am so happy i decided to do this build. It has basically doubled my effective range for a muzzleloader which is a big help. My neighbor seen how good this thing shot and bought one less than 16 hours later. Ok here are the specs
Savage Model 11 action (already had)
28" stainless Pac Nor barrel .45 cal threaded for Petes breach plug $417
Petes breach plug $95
Choate ultimate sniper stock $190
Osprey 10-40x50 Scope (already had)
If there is anybody out there that is looking to extend there range with a ML and your state allows it it would be bennificial to take a look at building one of these. I am so glad i did
