Re: Hornady PA Concials and group sizes
My buddy & I both shoot PA hunters, his is older without the "QA" or whatever they call the newer ones that are not rifled at the muzzle. We zero & practice with plain Hornady patched [censored] & 80gr of FFFg till we're good, and then put 1 or 2 conicals through them. The conicals seem to shoot at least as well as the patched [censored] and are better bullets to hunt with. My rifle has a peep sight so it seems to give tighter groups than the other one, and 2" at 75 yards is a dead deer every time. Worried about the bullet slipping off the charge? It's possible, but I always ramrod the load one last time when I sit down, or climb up, or wherever I'm hunting. Good luck!
Forget about the danger; think of the fun!
