CVA Mtn Pistol part 2

Took the CVA Mountain Pistol .50cal out to 20 yards again first with 50 grains Clean Shot 2f. A real fun light recoil load with lots of smoke, not great for accuracy but the recovered patches look great. I have almost a full bottle of it so why not just use that up before switching over to Goex, right?

20 yards
.490 round ball
.015" patches lubed with Mr flintlocks patch lube
50gr Clean Shot




Now Goex, that got my mind to thinking and putting the cold to the side, I went in a grabbed 3 powder tubes with 50 grains Goex 2f and loaded up the same patch n ball combo.

SUPERB Accuracy! Believe it or not, thats THREE Shots. The hole on the left you can tell its smudged out a bit where as the hole on the right is round.



I tell you, this is only my second time out with the pistol since I got it and I can already tell she and I will be real good friends. Just have to drift the rear sight over to get it center and then figure out where exactly I want my max range to be with this pistol for target shooting. I was thinking 30 yards max, but first I will shoot that yardage and see how it groups before doing any filing on the front sight.

Your going to crack your stock with 50 grains of powder. If it isn't cracked already.
