RE: may have stumbled on to a good combination
I shot some Goex before I shot the JSG, so I had to give it the normal scrubbing after I got home. I ran a couple wet patches through after I shot the BP and the JSG seemed to be very clean. The group was without any swabbing between shots.
One wierd thing, though. The can of JSG says use un-lubed patches with round balls. I only had a few un-lubed, so I tried a lubed patch on one shot. Almost no recoil, felt & sounded like a "squib" load, and hit way low?????
I like the JSG's performance so far. It ignited fine, and seems to be very clean. I plan to try it in the Lyman Mustang with Barnes bullets this week and see if it will group them as tight as Pyrodex. If it does, I'll probably switch to it.
It cost me $21.95 at the local department store, but they are high on everything. I bought the Lyman Mustang from Mid-South, but asked the local store to price it first. The asked $80. more, and when I told them what I could buy it for they said that was more than it cost them. [:-]
