Did a little shooting today

I think I finally found a load this little carbine likes. 65 grains of 3f with a patched round ball. I've tried a little more powder and a little less powder but these are by far my best results. First two shots are up top, next three below. I might tinker and try to get it a little lower this week. This is from a Traditions Buckskinner Carbine at 50 yards.

Re: Did a little shooting today

I'm pretty sure it has a 21" barrel. I bought it used. I'll try to get some pics up but it's nothing special. lol I'll say this, it's no problem to carry all day.

Re: Did a little shooting today

Here's a quick pic. Like I said nothing special. I'm getting ready to clean it right now.
