Awesome groups can I ask why you switched powders. I am trying to learn and I have some 275 and some 325 accumax bullets. I don't have a rifle yet but I am trying to understand and learn from everyone on the board.
I'm sick as a dog right now, eyes watering so bad I can hardly go to work.
Oh, no! That's just how a 3-week bug hit my wife and I! Hope it's not the same as the one that has hit eastern Iowa. Not much on the news about it, either. We blamed it on O's south-of-the-border illegal imports because of rumors about something similar last fall. Lordy, hope it isn't what you have!
I think there is point to where fouling improves the accuracy of these muzzleloaders. I had 15 foulers before I shot group 6. I suspect that after a fouled barrel sets for a long period of time that the fouling changes consistency and may harm accuracy. I experienced this when shooting Blackhorn several years back. Shot my gun, left it fouled for 4 days and couldn't get the sabot down the barrel. Had yo disassemble and clean one opening morning.
