does make a BIG difference---Others here please chime in if you agree or disagree.
Well put!Retiredusne8 said:Lyman and T/C are a good choice,If you are close to Dixon's muzzleloader shop,they can be of great help to you,Remember the Flintlock is only as accuate as the person behind it and how much time you spend on the range getting use to it and finding the right load for it.
Cabelas hawken rifles have the same barrel manufactuer as Lyman. I shot beside a guy at the range a couple weeks ago that was shooting a Lyman, and his had all the same markings as my cabelas hawken. Not sure of the model of his. It was about the same size as my gun. He was shooting 240 pa conicals, and I was shooting 200 gr 44 mag sabot's. We were both able to get about the same accuracy. I was getting around 2" at 50, and he was getting a little more than that. I would tend to think it was the shooter and not the gun. No. I'm not patting myself on the back. He was having some issues.zimmerstutzen said:An Italian InvestArms Hawken style gun, as sold by many mail order outfits, is a close second to the Lyman.
