NEF 45-70

Postby gtk » Sun Jan 07, 2007 8:00 am

Sighted in my 45-70 yesterday, using the remmington corelock 300 grain.. Not flinching, usign a lead sled ...

I'm not too impressed by the grouping! It seems to "spray" the bullets around a 5" circle. Could be the scope though, Its an old redfiled 3x9 thats probably 20 years old.

I'm going to pick up some different bullets & try again...

What are ya'll shooting ? The hornady lever evolution is non-existant up here in DeSoto county..

I had the same problem with an old scope It would not hold vertical zero Mine is also very picky about powder charge but I can get a 2 inch group at 100 yds consistantly now

I've got a similar Redfield scope and it wouldn't handle the recoil. I put a Nikon Prostaff 3-9x40 on it and the groups tightened right up. 8)
