The light is almost gone and the flash doesn't show the wood very well
Still have to dovetail for rear sight and drill and tap for drum or ventliner
I'm thinking seriously about putting a flintlock on now

Yeah it dont even need bullets if its less than a 20 yard shot. Just swing it like a baseball bat.
Im just a dirtbag that lacks the necessary skills to hunt like a real hunter, so I just sit in a tree for a few hours in the morning and evening.

All I like is installing the rear sight then sending it to Idaho to get some engraving done
Should be back and sighted in for November 22

And it shoots :2TU:
Still got to bench it and see what it does at 50, 75 and 100 yds but this long barreled rifle is rock steady

A note to the other 10 teams in the contest this is the gun I will hunt with 80% of the time
so everyone has a chance :stir: :W: :2TU:

90grs and a 500gr bullet should stack @ 100yds if recoil isn't to bad. What is weight of rifle? and what kind of load can it stand?
Nice rifle. Wood is excellant from what I've seen so far.
