Default 45 Hawken

Took the 45 GM LRH out today trying my 11mm paper patched bullets. after a couple sight adjustments I taped up the holes and fired a 5 shot group. I think this will work. 50 yards. Sorry it's sideways for some reason

Brat!! I'll just turn the rifle 90* like a gangsta!! I posted this from my phone and it uploaded at 90* That's about a 3/4" group.

It is grouping at 3" high at 50 yards. Should make me good out to about 125 or 150

I really do. But I'm pretty fond of my .58 GM round ball shooters too.
