My new Plains Rifle
Got her in trade and she came in yesterday. Custom .50cal Plains Rifle, 28" custom "no name or numbers" barrel with a 1:48 twist and deep groove rifling. L&R lock, sweet double set triggers. Stock is just amazing on it. Sorry that the pics don't do the rifle justice!
250gr Thor Concials @ 50 yards with 90gr American Pioneer 3f. Round balls are next on the list tomorrow!
Nice rifle, congrats!
nice rifle, awesome looking furniture.
That last pic is great, nice rifle that is a keeper....
very nice plains rifle!!
FG it kinda has a leman/Hawken look to it. Very nice looking rifle, wood shows very well. Let me know when you get tired of it and don't scratch it.
Got that custom .50cal out to 110 yards today, had to move the target back a good deal as it was in the shade and impossible to see. Once i moved it into the full sun, the 3" dot was fairly easy to see even with my eyes.
I got the perfect load for the rifle it seems and this will be my elk load this September once i find what unit i am going to try for.
90gr Pyrodex RS, lubed wad, 250gr REAL. 110 yards
As you can see i am impacting low. I will buy a brass front sight and mod that one as i do have trouble seeing this front sight at times during different light times. Today the front sight looked perfect, most times it has a huge shiny glare which makes finding the action edge of the sight very tough. This one however is sighted in perfect for patched round balls so i will leave it for ronnyvoo shoots if i go this year, and for just fun round ball shooting.
I'll file the new brass front sight to be dead on @ 100 yards and then try 150 and see if i want to make any more adjustments.
A good day!
Nice rifle, really nice lumber!!
I'm waiting for FG to get tired of that rifle. :rolleyes:
