You are indeed a sick puppy but the problem is I understand completely!

We all have our sick spots.

Took her out again today. She hated the .020" patches so i switched back to the .018 pillow tick and got a decent group at 50 yards. I was using 110gr 3f american pioneer this time and it did ok. Room for improvement. Tomorrow i will try charges of 70gr and 90gr APP 3f and see how she do. |

|Hunting Man||I remember using a 535 ball and .010 pre-lubed patch in my GPR flint lock. Probably one I should have kept.|

GPR came in today! |
After scrubbing the bore clean and then JB pasting it, i took it out to 50 yards with 100gr JSG 3f, .015 patch and .530 round ball. Didn't group well at all.
Was going to call it quits but then remembered i had some thicker .018" pillow tick patches in a little tin than were unlubed. Poured down 110gr JSG 3F, stuck the patch in my mouth and sucked on it, grabbed a ball, laid the patch across the bore and rammed the ball home.
Took 2 shots and they were touching! I didnt even use my lead sled today and i pulled it off LOL.
Took 2 more shots with 100gr JSG 3F and the same tight patch combo and ended up with 1 1/4" group.
Not bad, but just like the last GPR i had, a powder pig!
Even got a mold too which looks to be a heck of a lot better quality than my Lee mold.
I got some loads ready for the morning of 110gr American Pioneer 3f, .020" patch and .530 round balls. We'll see how that does off the Lead Sled .

|Hunting Man||FG, wasn't sure there for a minute, but I understand now! I should get that 1/2 stock Hawken project around the 4th to see what I've got myself into. Now I will have to clean my work bench/area find all the drill bits/taps ect lay everything out and take stock of needs.|
