POWERBELTS WORK GREAT OUT OF MY DEERSTALKER. I THINK THERE 245 GRAIN AND 80 GRAINS OF 2 f IN THE BARREL. 4F IN THE PAN.

Not trying to highjack thread, but since this is based on Lyman deerstalker, I have question. Shot mine today with everything from 70 grains through 100 grains of 2F, tried roundball, powerbelt and t.c. sabots. I have the rear sight set as high as it will go and am still hitting to low, any suggestions on what to do because I am out of sight adjustment and trying all different loads i can't get the point of impact any higher.

Shot a deerstalker for a friend a few days ago. Laying shots on top of each other at 50 yards with a .490 round ball and 85 grains of black powder, 3f.

Punxsy, Try moving your rear sight down, not up. The bullet follows the direction the rear sight is moved. I use 70gr of 3f and .490 PRB and can lay snuff can sized groups at 50 yards all day long.

Punxsy said he was shooting low and, therefore, needs to raise his POI. So raising his rear sight, as he was doing, is correct.

Thanks for info guys, I changed the front sight today for a lower profile one, I will shoot it tomorrow and hopefully be in business.
