I am trying to diagnose a problem with my muzzleloader.
I am 90% sure that it is a mechanical problem and would like your opinions on the best place to start.
The rifle shoots two groups. First shot is almost always dead center, then I will get a bullet 1 1/4 inches right, then back on center. Sometimes I will get two center then one right, but it almost always throws one or two to the right out of 5 and almost exactly the same distance.
Here is a representative target:
Rifle is a Shilen .458 #7 barrel;
Bullets are 150 grain NAB;
Velocity around 3100 fps
Target shot @ 100 yards [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]
Savage Tupperware stock with the action glass bedded.
I have poor bench technique, but I think that this is mechanical.
