    Went out blasting the new toy and that was fun!. Used both Buffalo Ball-ets and sabots over 90,100, and 110 of black powder and also pryodex. The rifle shot to the left by about 6" but all 3 of the shots int he groups touched usaly up and down not clover leaf at 50 yards. Useing 70 gand 80 grain loads made it shoot very low (12") but was a very mild load interms of recoil. At 100 and 110 the Ball-ets (270? Grain cant rember exactly) would make egg shaped holes instead of round. Called T/C and they said anything under 350 grain was too light and may not stabalize. Will shoot what I got and get some heaver bullets....
