75 Yard 454 Group

With all of the accuracy posts lately, I decided to shot this 3 shot group at 75 yards. I can not see the sights and or target to shoot any better this this any more. If I do shoot better it is because of the lighting and back ground allows me to see a bit better.
The Ammo is Buffalo Bore 360 grain WLFN Hard Cast

range it,check the wind, dial in correction, aim and only one shot

Good shooting!! I use a scope on mine, because I can't see the sights anymore, and It will shoot 2" groups at 100 yards most of the time.

How is the recoil with that bullet?

I have that same problem. What I did to help me a bit was to put a weight on the target to angle it upwards so it would reflect the bright sky instead of reflecting the dark grass.

I used to not be able to see that 8 x 12" target at 300 yards when the sun was high or behind the target, no mater what color I panted it; now I can see it anytime of day.

It also helps to have the chains in front, it tilts even more.

Great shooting BTW.

Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."-- Samuel Adams

Those Freedom Arms do shoot. I have one thats a dedicated hunting pistol all the bells and wistles done to it. It will shoot 2" or less groups all day long with a 2x Leupold. I also have one with a 4 3/4 barrel for general use, and plan on getting one in 500 Wyoming Express.

Nice shooting.
I'm using a Lee 300 gr bullet and 29.5 grains of Lil'Gun from my Encore with a 2x7 Burris and at 100 yards ain't doing too bad, but can do better. I'm waiting to get a can of Unique and see how my RCBS 270 SAA bullet will do. It makes really nice groups with .45 Colt loads, altho about 8" higher than where I aim.
