My brother-in-law has the same gun. His shoots 385 Hornady Great Plains bullets over 90 grains Pyrodex RS real well - 2 1/2" 100 yard groups.

I took the Grey Hawk out to the range yesterday. I had cast some Lee "real" bullets for it,and wanted to see how they shot. At 50yds. the first shot cut the bullseye,on the right. I moved the rear sight,and the second shot was dead center. I was using 80grs. of T7. Now I started shooting,and the longer I shot it,the farther it would go to the left,so I would give the rear sight a couple of clicks to the right. I switched over to RPB and the same thing would happen. I've checked all the sights (front,and rear) and they are tight. I was shooting pretty fast,could the barrel have been too hot? This one has me stumped ??? Any ideas are welcome. Ron

Sounds like yer barrel got warm and started walking on you. May have a pressure point on the right side causing it to hit left as it gets hot.

smokepolehall You are prouably right! I tend to shoot very fast. I need a guideline on sighting in,as how long to wait between shots. Maybe 2-3 minutes between shots? Ron

I love GBO, I just picked up a .50cal Grey Hawk today myself and have entered into the new world of Black powder. I came here first to check the threads, and .......well nuff said. So my question so far is the use of powder vs. pellet. Can you use pellets in this cap type firearm or is that for in lines only. I plan on just using ball ammo at first and work my way up. I'm sure I will have lots of questions as I grow.


Take care and let me have some opinions

It takes me several min. too load from scratch, ain't in no hurry. I am thinking you have a pressure pt. causing it to string like that. Mongo, pellets take serious fire to ignite them. Very hot caps with lots of flame time. I personally have never tried it but have read on forums of others that did. They usually went with musket caps or converted nipple fer shotgun primers.

Thanks smokepolehall, I do have one more question. Can I load this as a shot gun as well as a rifle/muzzle loader or because of possible fowling of the rifling I should avoid this?
May be a dumb question, but for now I just don't know the answer.


Thanks

Mongo
