Default Another run with the .45 Hoyt rebarrel

Today I was shooting Ed's 340 gr I bullets at 50 and 100 yards. I took Ed's recommendation and dropped my charge down to 60 gr. It made a world of difference. Right at 1" at 50 yards and 1.25" at 100 yards. Additional shots near the center were sighting in of my 22 LR.
I sure can't argue about how the rifle is shooting. With peep sights I don't think I can shoot much better than that.

You're probably getting something like 1200 f.p.s. with that load. Plenty of energy to smack the snot out of anything withing reasonable iron sight hunting range.

I'm sure of that Semi but I'm thinking of lowering the sight a tad and have it shooting dead on at 100 because with this setting I'm 6" high at 50.. Or, I can leave it like this and be good on a dead center hold from 75 out to about 125. I'll just hold at 6 O'clock for 50 and closer. What do you think?

That'll work if you're comfortable with it. I tend to go for a dead-on setting for the near shots and holdover for longer shots. No particular reason for that other than that's what I'm used to, and most of my shots are in the 75-yard range or less.

It may be that the nearer shot situations tend to have short heart pounding windows of opportunity and I don't want to have to think about adjusting my hold, while long shot situations usually provide more time to think about appropriate holdover. On the other hand, using a 6 O'clock hold for shorter shots gives you a better sight picture than does the holdover approach for longer shots..

Clem, I agree, I would do the same.
