    Hmmmm It looks just like my son's Tradions 50. We have found the best load for ball in his to be just a whisper over 70gr Pyrodex RS (Can't get real BP here.)

    50 yds, open sights, eh? Sounds like a winner. Best 3 out of 5 target group or splitting match sticks? :D
     
  9. The nuther one...

    Here's the other one...Knight in-line .54 cal.,...I'll take the scopes off or leave em on,depending on any which way Ya'll want to shoot...best 3 out 5 no problem'o, anyway Ya'll want...:)
     
  10. This time...

    I think I'll attach the pic...:rolleyes:

    Sounds good to me. (I can't see matchsticks at 50 yards, anymore, anyway. :D ) Fire 5 rounds at one target, measure the best 3 round group, using centers and ship it? Iron or fiber sights only? With gost-ring/peep sights allowed? Target signed by shooter? Did I miss anything?

    When do we start and when do we cut off?

    READY ON THE RIGHT

    ;)
     
  12. A&S...

    I'm hoping we can make this an all spring, summer, fall event...Halloween should be the cut-off...do you have a digital camera?...:)

    Yes, I have a digital cam. It's pretty small, though. Don't know if I can hit it 3 times out of 5 at.......OH :D :p

    Yes, I have a digital cam. Sometimes, it actually works. If it decides to not, I'l just use one of the old standby's and scan in the shot of the target.

    well I shot today before I saw the rest of the rules,as it turned out I shot a 5 shot group and I had 2 fliers and 3 that hung together nicely.I will get a pic and try to post it but it may be a while, cause I dont have a digital yet.

    That's why I speced the 3 out of 5 rule. That is common with me, too (although sometimes it is 4 flyers :D )

    We'll use the flyers to break a tie.

    READY ON THE LEFT?
