Re: 500 yard muzzle loader accuracy from the Gunwerks boys

Well a member on Dougs message Board got a 5.2" group with a Savge 10ML-ll with a Pacnor 50 cal barrel with a 6.5-20x50 Leupold scope sighted 1" high at 100yds. With 70grs of H4198 and a 300gr Barnes bullet. It took 23 minutes of elevation to get a 3 shot group 5.2" at 500yds. With a rebarreled Savage 10ML-ll and a good scope. Price below $2000 so you can do it cheaper than $7000. And you can not use that load in the $7000 gun. I might have to rebarrel my 10ML-ll.

Re: 500 yard muzzle loader accuracy from the Gunwerks boys

my franklin gun cost me $1800.00 its on a 700 action, kreiger with a HS stock and a jewel. I can shoot a six inch plate all day long at 612 yards with a 325 parker and have it on video to prove it. i have shot .25 inch groups at 100 yards. Franklin retired last year, but i know a smith in that same area that is producing the same rifle and ones built on TC encore actions. PM me if interested. If you build one order your barrel 2 inches longer and have your smith cut off the extra. save the piece and send it to swing lok rifles in Erie Pa. He will build you a custom swager that swages the bullet with the lands and groves already cut its an exact match and its awesome!!!!! I also shoot 4198 at about 2700

I also have a t/c from the guy in that same area and a swing lock die , for the money , accuracy , and easy of reloading there is no better set up on the face of earth to hunt with than Justin's ML guns. I will more than likely be selling my franklin built because I dont need two ML with the same capability.
