Traditional Shooters

Anyone left that shoots traditional instead of these rifles with plastic stocks, stainless steel barrels, scopes, replica powder and saboted bullets?

Re: Traditional Shooters

YES!!!! i shoot a winchester(replica) .54 cal with self cast lymn bullets 525 grain or 329 grain that i dont know if you can get any more i think that the grains have changed and i still use tripple f powder but due to fowling i clean between every shot.

my brother shoots a .58 and does all of it himself and we are looking into making our own powder but his wife is realy conserned that we might blow ourselves up. but with proper precousions it will be interesting to see what grade and consistancy we can make. (sorry about the spelling im writing thid on my phone )

Goex is cheap and will be a better grade powder than you and your brother will make.

Not much to tell. I was walking around my backyard and so was he. I saw him first because he had his nose on the ground heading my way. I waited untill he got about 30 yards away (long distance for that and let him have it.

Re: Traditional Shooters

Lyman Great Plains Kit gun with round balls, pillow ticking & 90 gr of FF Goex. Sighted it in at 75 yards the day I finished it. Killed whitetail at 70 yards holding dead on & killed a Muley at 126 yards holding dead on. It's a running legend (joke) about how "flat" it shoots so one day we were rabbit hunting and we picked out a rock on a steep cliff face at 260something yards. I held dead on the first shot so I could get a feel for how much it would drop...you guessed it, nailed the rock. Sure... I know I must have thrown that shot way high, but you can bet there wasn't a second shot. The "legend" continues.
