Default What a wonderful delemia to have!

Took the Old Knight out this morning after having installed the new 209 conversion kit. Fired one shot and was hitting about 5" high so I made a scope adjustment. Then fired two more (covered with tape). I then fired the 5 shot group with the 300 gr SWs swabbing with acohol patch and dry patch between each shot. Nice!? Then I fired 5 more with the 250 gr SWs and got the group on the right. I was using the Harvester black CR sabots for both loads. Really is a toss up as to what bullets to use. But I think I will be using the 250s cause the 300s shoot better out of my GM LRH Hawken barrels. I think I just might hang on to this rifle - what do you all think?
