PRB in an inline ML!

Hello from Germany!

In other forums I read that PRB won't work in inline-ML because of the fast twist of 1 in 32'' or even faster. today I tested some PRB in my .50 CVA inliner at 40 yds. I have to say they worked very well. 3 shots were within 1,5''. I shot free stand.

Regards

My Knight will shoot some real respectable PRB groups as long as I don't push them with more than 65grs of FFG

PRB in an inline ML!

Yesterday I was at the range and tested it out again. At 30 meters I got 1'' groups with 3 shots of 60 grs WANO PP, .490er PRB, 0,20mm lubed patch. At 50 meters the groups opened a bit up to 1,5-2''. I found that the accuracy becomes much more bad in a short twist barrel when fouling increases. Because after 10 shots the hits spread over the target.

I figure the ones that say that have never tried it.
I've a Lyman GPR with the 1:32 hunter barrel that has sent many rabbits/squirrels to their maker with patched roundballs.
Last year was given an in-line as a gift...sighted it in with patched roundball.
If I was to take it to the woods...them rabbits/squirrels would be in real trouble. Yes
