1st Black Powder Grouse Hunt Success!

Well, it wasn't much of one, but I got one! In total, the 3 of us shot 2 dusky grouse over 8 days of hunting.

It was really dry up there and the forest service was nice enough to run a dozer through the trails and that let all of the yuppie "Hunters" get into the good places and set up camp in the hunting areas we've had great luck in. These guys actually think they can park in a field and have elk run across their hoods or something.

In total we saw 5 grouse, 2 of which are in the freezer. We got a whole lot more meat in the cooler, but thats a story for another day.

I busted this one in a tree at around 40 yards, I aimed a little high as I knew she patterns a little low at this kind of distance and squeezed the trigger. Wings went flyin and flappin down the tree until she hit the ground! 

70gr Jim Shockeys Gold Super Powder.
over powder card, lubed wad and 1oz 7 1/2 shot

A great deal of shot hit her square in the head.

Almost dialed in!

With hunting season closing in, I decided to switch out my old .080" thick front sight with a thinner post as my updates eye prescription had turned the slight blurry for me.

The new sight I installed on my .58cal CVA Hawken is the typical traditional German silver blade sight and is .050" thick and allows my eye to see both the rear and front sights clearly.

The target above was just me dialing it in. I have since brought up the point of impact by filing down the front sight a little at a time. I will do the rest of the fine tuning once I head out to my 100 yard range. For now, that 50 yard 3 shot group was me feeling comfortable and relaxed with my current load.

MLP Solid Film Lubricant Pen

Local store had a fresh batch of supplies come in and this one caught my eye. I had seen it on a commercial and picked one up.

I shot my shotgun Hawken today so I took the lock apart and coated the parts.

The MLP Solid Film Lubricant Pen meets the performance of Mil-Spec requirements. MLP is a semi-permanent, lacquer-like coating containing molybdenum disulfide and corrosion inhibiting pigments. This air-drying material prevents corrosion, galling, seizing and fretting. MLP is a low-friction coating that exhibits long wear life when operated at -320°F to +300°F. For internal firearm application only.

Shooting the 1860 Colt Army. 44cal Black Powder Revolver

I've had my 1860 Army .44cal revolver loaded for 3 months with 20gr pyrodex select since late April and finally took her out to shoot it off and clean it. No rust that I can see, all 6 shots fired off flawless and accuracy was pretty decent at 15 yards standing up, double handing it. I was really surprised with how well it shot. I'll have to shoot it more, I just get tired of casting all the balls since I can shoot them up so quickly.

I just took the still pics off the video camera, nothing fun to watch with a target. Next time I'll set up a little shooting range.

Cleaning Tips and Tricks
When cleaning Goex, KIK, Swiss, Pyrodex, Triple7, American Pioneer, Alliant Black MZ always start with a bucket of HOT soapy water to help break up stubborn fouling and melt/remove patch/conical lube from the barrels rifling.

Soak breech end of barrel in the hot soapy water (Dawn or Murphy oil soap - Pinesol) and allow it to sit for a few minutes.
Use an old tooth brush to scrub fouling from nipple area and other areas where powder residue is present.

Remove nipple from barrel and with the correct cleaning jag, attach it to your cleaning rod and with the correct diameter cleaning patch, pump the hot soapy water up and down the bore until your patches start to show up cleaner.
3 to 4 patchs is normally a good start before its time to dump the dirty water out.
