I was looking for a little help. I have a Lyman .50 Deerstalker and cannot get this thing to shoot any pattern. I am shooting 90 grain of fff with a 295 gr powerbelt aero tip sabot. What should I be shooting out of this gun. I am looking to try and sight in Sunday because we got drawn for the Pymatuming hunt and need to have it ready to go. Very excited about that. Thanks in advance for any help.
I get the best groups out of my Deerstalker with patched round ball and black powder. I use 85 grains of 2f Goex, it is a .54 flintlock. Pyrodex works good to but I have to use about 10 grains of 3f Goex down the bore first to help light the Pyrodex due to it being a flintlock.
I have never got groups as tight as the round ball with conicals.
