THE WORST DAY HUNTING BEATS THE HECK OUT OF THE BEST DAY WORKING
I'm shooting 90 gr of 3F in my 50 cal deerstalker. Then again, I am pushing a very heavy 385 gr conical. I have found that I cannot reload in the field without running a patch through the barrel first, so maybe unburnt powder or excess residue is the culprit?
Yesterday I fired a shot and went to run a cleaning patch and my ramrod got stuck in the barrel. I was miffed. It took me 5 minutes to unwedge that thing.
