dummkopf forgot to order my....er ,i mean his, yes, his patches for a flintlock cva hawkens 50 cal. :ROFLMAO: i have to order the patches because they are .015" and all i got locally are .020 to .025".


now i have to use a tc encore 50 cal inline for early ML doe season. when i went to a local gun store to buy pyrodex pellets and some 209 primers, i was in shock. $30 + up for a box 50/50 pyrodex pellets and $12 for cci 209 inline!!!!! the last time i bought pellet and primers it was $18 pellets and $3 or $4 primers. that was 10 or so years ago. as far as i concerned the pellets can sit there, i have 2 1/2lb of goex 2f. the primers, i have to buy tho they are expensive. i bought cci 209 because they were only one there!!!

anyway, i shot the encore open fiber optics sights at 50 yards. there was a (.429")255gr keith sabot and a 280gr wfn sabot with 70gr of 2f. they both go about a 1" at 50 yards(3 shots) and i decided to go with the 280gr wfn. i should have took my chrony just to see the fps.


i've got to get out more often.

Walmart sells that striped pillow ticking in three thicknesses by the yard. Take a micrometer and buy enough patches for a war.

That's not the point. Half a pup tent worth of pillow ticking cost what one package of pre-cut patches cost. Buy it anywhere, but I see it in Walmart and don't haunt fabric shops normally.
