Hey Red Cent,

Yes.

Using a couple different cast bullets, both Penn Bullets and Moyer's, and a bullet a pal casts for me, with 10.0 gr of Universal Clays, am consistently grouping about 1-1/8" to 1-1/4" at the 100 yard line.

You want a .380" or .381" cast bullet, for best result.

Skinner Alaskan rear sight, and a Skinner "Blade" up front.

Have other pics, can't seem to locate them? (am a confuser ignoramus) LOL

Later, Mark

Hey Red Cent,

First, make sure the barrel is not fouled. (if you have used jacketed bullets, they may have left copper deposits, easily removed with Sweet's 7.62 Solvent)

Bob (at http://pennbullets.com/3855/3855-caliber.html ) only casts the 245 gr bullet.

Have only used Moyer's http://moyerscastbullets.com/rifle.html 260 gr Gas Checked bullet, at .380". It shoots like a house on fire.

I would not "cut/ream" the chamber in your rifle.....(there are many tales of those who regretted it)

I am using the Starline "long" brass, with a roll crimp.

Check your screws, both on the "wrist" and the "forearm". Also check the trigger plate screws.

Some rifles seem to "prefer" the "short" brass. (do not know the exact numbers, but do know the "long" brass can be trimmed to "short" length.

I can routinely "ring" the 10" dinger at the 200 yard line.........off hand, with either the PennBullet or the Moyer's Bullet.

Using shooting sticks, can ring it every time. LOL (sticks are almost "cheating") LOL

Do know a man whose rifle "likes" a .382" bullet (that he casts) ??

Have had real good success on the chronograph with the Universal Clays......single digit "extreme spreads".

Fed 210 primer.........

Hope some of this helps.

Later, Mark
