They are freakin nice! Expensive but solid! I love how easy it is the adjust position on the target with the control arm. I believe its something like 5 feet of adjustment at 100 yards.

1:28 is great with powerbelts, at least with the CVA And Traditions guns. I had one omega that shot them real well.

I took it out after the Hail/Rain storm, it was really cool out, froze my ears off.

I think its pretty much ready to go!

3 shots @ 100 yards with the 245gr Aerotip powerbelts, 90gr BH209, Standard CCI 209 Primers.


Cold enough that i needed a sweatshirt,

My pooch went with me this evening as well,

ronn, I'm getting a really strong feeling that he likes it and you like that he likes it, something like that. Now if if was a TC there would only be one hole!

HM, Does that TC shoot that poorly where you're only able to hit the target once?

Well guys after seeing how well it shoots i gave it a scrub down with 0 steelwool that had been oiled, followed up by 0000 steelwool with oil as well. Ran hoppes patches, then windex and finally Ultra bore coat degreasing solvent. A couple dry patches and then a patch soaked in Ultra bore coat itself. Shes going to be as smooth as clean in the bore and clean up like a dream after a day of shooting.

I also drilled the breech plugs flash channel out to 1/8" VS the #32 drill bit i used to use to clean the original flash channel out. Im not sure it was worth t he trouble setting up the drill press as the 1/8" drill bit was only a couple hairs thicker.

That"s how many should be fired. You mean to say you have to shoot more? BB If i set the triumph in a lock down sled it would shoot awsome. I shoot off of a rolled up towel for the barrel to set on. With these eyes sometimes I'm seeing two targets and have to decide which one is the right one.

check out one of these then. They only run about $40 but that is unfilled cost. Filled runs $80


But a large sock filled with sand or beans under the rear of the stock and its a real solid rest.

What have you found a good load to be for a 1:28" twist? My Knight KP1 has 1:28" twist and right now im using 2 50gr 777 pellets with a 250gr Barnes Expander in a Harvester Crush Rib Sabot with Winchester 209 primers. It seems to shoot alright but I think it could be better......By the way that's a sweet shooting muzzleloader by the looks of it.
