little problem this afternoon
Knight50cal and I went to the sportsmens club this afternoon to shoot our inlines...
We ended up getting rained on and he did not want to shoot but I decided I'd atleast run a few shots thru and make sure things were ok for the season and then next time out we would work on his inline...
Well, something has happened to my scope... Eratic shots.. only took 3...then Knight50cal decides for me to try a 4th shot with a 45 cal bullet in 1 of those 50 cal plastic sleeves...
I loaded 100 grains of pyrodex pellets and went to start that sabbot (If that is what it was, he will have to say what kind it was)
Any how, it got stuck right inside the lip of the barrel....we tried pulling it out with a puller but could not get it to pull....so here I am with a 100 grains down the barrel and a bullet stuck at the end of the barrel...
So, we decided to use his range rod and ram it down....we got it half way and it eased up and went SMOOTHLY to the bottom....
We pulled the Breech Plug and rammed it the rest of the way out... I did not feel comforatble to shoot it from how it went in!
What do some of you guys who been shooting for awhile think might have been the problem?
Do you think it would have been safe to shoot it?
We decided afterwards that we did things right and pulled the breech plug and shoved everything out the other end...Better to be safe then sorry!
Now, I have to clean up everything for things got wet...we are gonna try again wednesday or thursday if it is not raining and get my scope fixed on alignment and his shot in aswell!
