Re: Euroarms 1851 Navy, Shooting High
Thanks guys, the pompt responses are great.
I fired again this afternoon with a 25 grain charge of FFFG (and just the Wonder Wad) and it still shoots high at 50 feet and actually is still high at 50 yards. I give up on the POI problem for the moment and will order a new set of nipples to solve the more ciritical problem.
This excercise has been a real learning experience and I apprectiate the assistance. I am an old bulleye shooter but have not done anything with BP revolvers before this adventure. My BP TC muzzle loader is as accurate as most rifles and I was hoping to get the same results with the revolver. I am learning fast that probably will not happen. However, even with the POI high, the groups are about 2 - 3 inches at 50 feet not too shabby.
Does anyone else own a Euroarms revolver?
