395gr Lyman Plains bullet test

Not bad at all!! 50 yards today with my Traditions St.Louis Hawken .50cal shooting a Lyman 395gr conical over 80gr Alliant Black MZ. They load very nice! Snug at the top loading band and then go right down with a little resistance. No swabbing was needed to sustain accuracy, which is great for hunting in case you need another shot or 2. First 3 shots then a total of 5. Next up, I will run it out to 100 yards and see how low she shoots.I'm about to guess around 6" low. Also, check out that smashed up bullet I recovered from the tires!

Wow, those look like some pretty nice tires you're shooting up! Nice group, wish I could do so well.

lol they really were until the tire shop mounted them and found that they were completely full of cracks. Turns out these "new " tires were 17 years old.
