Took my Rifles out getting ready for my Hunt this weekend.First popped a Cap on my .54Cal. Hawken didn't fire :confused: changed Primers,did better but still not right,the Hammer wasn't hitting right,made sure it was tight.Didn't have no more problem.

It was shooting 425gr. Great Plains Conicals low with 80gr.Pyrodex,got it hitting right on.

Then shot my .50Cal. Hawken,it will shoot Patch and Ball right on.But shoots .385gr. Great Plains Bullets 6" low.Its got fixed sights so not much I can do there.

Took my .50Cal. Inline,shoots .245gr. Sabots just fine,with 90gr. Pyrodex,same with .385gr.Great Plains Bullet.Only thing I was concerned about with my Inline it was blowing my 209 Primers from back pressure.

So I'm taking the .54 Hawken start out with it,if need be go to the Inline.
