:grin: I worked on one for a friend so he could go elk hunting. The key to tight groups was using loose pyrodex instead of pellets. The best bullets were powerbelts, just because of their ease of loading. I do statistics and used fairly precise methods to reach these conclusions. I had several groups with all 5 shots touching using loose powder, but never with 3 pellets. Best group was 130 grains pyro, 250 grain powerbelt ballistic tip.
