Come on PW season

Postby BIGERN76 » Sat Sep 29, 2012 8:38 pm

I finally got to sight in the Hawkins 50 cal. with the patched round balls. Upper left was the first shot to see where it was. Made adjustment and shot the next highest shot to the right. One last adjustment and I shot the last two that are almost touchin. Only shot at 50 yards cause that was all the room I had today. I may hunt the special doe season this year just to try to get me one!! :ylsuper:

if they weren't so hard to clean, I wouldn't mind getting mine out of the safe & playing with it.. My son has seen it & wants to shoot it..

What load are you shooting? If I remember correctly, I was stuffing about 90 grains of FFG down it with a patched round ball.

Wonder how many youngers have actually had to adjust "iron" sites before.. most all of them, my son included, have never adjusted anything but scopes & lasers.

80 grains of pyrodex rs.
It really ain't that bad to clean, takes about 30 minutes. It does stink though (literally)..

hot soapy water, flush it in & out of several times... then oil the heck out of it... makes the house smell like bad farts after eating thai food & taco's.. they don't mix in the intestines well..

Cleaning is just as much fun as shooting them . Most times while cleaning you pick up on small faults or hickups the gun has and you can set it right .

You and I think along the same lines Spit...I've always enjoyed cleaning them as much as shooting them. ;)
