    Cleaning up a 686

    Back in the ' 80 I ordered a 6"629 and a 6" mod 29 through mid south . The 629 cyl actually drug on the forcing cone when rotated . I got Him Clark at Clark guns in Keithvile La to true and tune it for me .The mod 29 rear sight could not be adjusted enough to get anywhere close to bulls eye at 25 yd . Sent back to S&W 6 months later it came back with a list of everything the custom shop replaced including the barrel . I still have both guns and the 6" is the most accurate revolver I have ever shot . ____ Hopefully yours will come back as good . Sent from my moto e5 play using Tapatalk

    Blackhorn 209 Is absolutely garbage!

    You can do the same thing with smokless powder . That is why when you find an awesome load you buy several pounds of powder . ___ unless you are pushing the limits with 209 you probably won't notice any difference between lots .___ with rifle bullets ( 5.56 ,.308 etc.) 50 fps can make a lot of difference in accuracy but blunt pistol type bullets don't change much if any . ___ I say work up 10 dipped and 10 weighed and see if you can tell a difference . If groups shrink one way or the other do it that way . ___ Sent from my moto e5 play using Tapatalk

    Nikon Out of The Scope Business

    I fall into the trap of trying to "target shoot" game and often spend way too much time on a shot . ___ This year my buck came across at a little over 100 yds trailing doe and I had to take an off hand aim and fire now or never shot . I was thankful I have a habit of target shooting off hand at gallon jugs full of water . ___ unless you are handicapped most of your shooting in preparation for hunting should be unsupported or off shooting sticks .____ I am good enough to hit jugs a lot farther than I am game though .____Thank God for tripod trigger sticks.

    Nikon Out of The Scope Business

    I never have been a fan of cheap scopes nor expensive scopes and usually find middle price to fit my needs just fine .___ I have a Leopold on a 7/08 that is just as bright and reliable as the cheap Simmons 44 mag scope that has been on my 30/06 for 30 years . ____ My wife has no limit on what price scope she put on her 6.8 but she still chose a True glow 1x6 Chevron - dot because of the rectical and how clear and bright it is . ( Better than my vortex , Leopold or Nikon on 6 power). ____point is there has to be a reason for some one to purchase your product over the competition at the same price range . I only have one Nikon and even though it is an ok scope I took it off and put it on a shelf after a couple of trips out . The turrents are easy to adjust alright but don't lock and if you don't tape them down taking it out of scabart or bumping brush changes the settings . ____ Remember your scope is only as clear as your shooting glasses.

    I asked because I know of a guy who weighed out 120 grains thinking it was the same as dipping. He won't make that mistake again .'__I would chrono weighed loads from several lots to check concistantly but I already have a life time supply, all of the same lot .

    When you weight them out you don't mean you weigh 100 grn out and call it 100 grn equivalent do you ? Sent from my moto e5 play using Tapatalk

    Power belts don't hold tight until pressure is put on the cup which may be the reason for poor ignition . BH 209 does not flash when lit like black powder substitutes it burns slower . There is no reason to clean barrel between shots with 209 or even unload it overnight if left out in the cold , just pull primer . I use harvester sabots with either Hornady 45 hp or cast wide flat nose bullets . I have found the tighter the fit the more velosity and accuracy--- I love the fact you can shoot 10 in a row and the 10th will be right there with the first with no cleaning in-between . I believe if you change to a tighter bullet you will not want another powder . Sent from my moto e5 play using Tapatalk

    The only problem I have ever encountered with 209 was using easy load sabots , seems Magnum primers push them away from the charge and prevent proper burn/ pressure . Sent from my moto e5 play using Tapatalk

    Things that make me angry...

    As far as shooting off center I actually shoot smaller groups when I don't see where my last shot landed . I like to have someone else mark sequence of shots on another target . If by myself I often set up a camera close to the target ,it often shows the off shot was taken very close to or farther away in time than the others . 20 seconds one way or the other can be a noticable difference because of barrel temp / chamber - cartridge temp or slight wind change .
