Cabelas Hawken and a new bullet

Borrowed this mold off a friend of mine. Throws a huge conical at 454 grains. Used 70gr Pyrodex RS, 454 .501 conical, lubed wad @ 100 yards

Didn't bother with the 75 yard group pictures, Heres the 100 yard target and recovered bullet.

444.6 grains recovered weight.
