If it is a Caplock, it ISN'T an Inline...an inline is a ignition system that is directly behind the powder charge.. a caplock is NOT An Inline, the cap is struck at the side and the small flame from it goes down thru the tube and ignites the powder from the side...
Throwing the rifle in the back of the truck is NOT Good for it..How old is your buddy?
Get rid of the Shocky's gold sticks and get Black Powder and work with that...start with 70 grains behind a low grain power belt!
Is he resting the rifle?
If so, is he Resting the BARREL on the rest to shoot or is he Resting the STOCK on the rest when shooting?
IF he is NOT Resting the rifle to shoot it, get a rest and USE it...IF he is Resting the Barrel on the Rest, STOP THAT, Get the STOCK on the Rest!
How are you and your buddy trying to shoot this thing in?
Explain it, not just the powder and bullets, HOW are you 2 shooting this rifle?
What type of set up are you using?
Picnic table with a rest?
Off Hand standing?
Give us a little info on how the shooting is being done!
And get Black Powder.. those sticks are made for Center Ignited Systems that are TRUE Inlines...it can be used, but isn't what those caplocks were made to be shot with in them!
