Default New Rifle Coming any day!!

I was looking through a Bass Pro Shop site and saw they were selling CVA Mountain Stalker rifles for $69.95. I need another rifle like I need a hole in the head so I have been told. Lets hope I am the only one home when the UPS man comes.

Anyway, it is a .54 caliber sidelock with a 26" barrel and a 1-38 twist. I am going to try shooting roundball with a reduced charge and some 300 grain LEE conicals that I make, out of it. The light conicals I think will do real good. They shoot excellent out of my T/C .54 caliber Renegade. I am not into sabots much, but if anyone has seen on of these, shot one, or knows a load they like, or could suggest some to try, give me a post.
