"on three shot groups.
That sounds like a good start of a five or 10 shot shot group. its easy to get three lucky shots, but five in a row is a safer bet. A ten shot group is a good test of rifle and shooter.
I can't get interested in 100 yd. stuff , unles it's with traditional hand guns.
How small of groups does your Sharps shoot at 100? it's soo close it might burn holes in the paper with muzzeblast, so be careful.Try to shoot at our BR score target at 100 and it might interest you. Not too many 400's shot even with pure BR guns. I never wanted to shoot small-bore at 50 feet, then I tried it with a buddy. it wasn't as easy to shoot 10's as i had thought. Heck I shot cast at 300 yds all the time this 50' stuff would be a whiz....It weren't
I'll pick my m-83 F. A. .454. You can pick a pistol.
I have seen FA .357 revolvers shoot 5 into 1” at 100 yds before. Amazing revolvers!! I shoot with Bill Bartram a guy who won a few Silhouette Championships. He claims to have designed the 357 and .22rf FA guns. I would love to own one of his .357 FA's!!
By the way I started this challenge because of the two piece stock thing.
I think single shots are accurate. We just need to define accuracy. I love Ruger 1#'s and defend them, but they have their issues. I would generally pick a bolt over a SS up to 300yd for my lead shooting though. Past that range I only have opinions as I don't have a range that i can paste 500 yd targets. I shoot at smallish rocks out that far and hit them, but that tells me nothing.
real world whether hunting or tactical when we need to grab our gun and count on one shot, If I'm using cast bullets I'll count on my Sharps
I cant argure with that choice,but for me the bolt rifle make more sense.
I was joking about the 100 yd match with my 22-250.Making bold statements about cast accuracy can get a guy in trouble, you and Ric need to get this one resolved.
