I finally got the time and weather to try shooting my new target 38/55 at 100 yds. I am happy to report that it shot a 10 shot, 4 inch group at 100 yds. I found out a few things. first I can only shoot about 3-4 shots and than have to have the barrel cool. I also need to wipe the barrel inside with a clean cloth about every 5 shots . My gun likes a clean, cool barrel. I'm as happy as a child in a candy shop. Again thanks to all here who helped me achieve this level of accuracy!
