Ordered barrel for my encore today. I went to the range and watched a guy shoot his for pattern. I was pretty impressed, I had no idea a blackpowder barrel would be THAT good.
My son has been pestering me about going with him for two or three years, and up till now I just didn't have much interest in going. But after I saw the pattern and range of the muzzleloader at the range the other day, I got kind of excited about going this year.
I love to hunt with a smoke pole, so this might turn into a good thing for me.( If nothing else, it's a little more time I can spend with my 2 sons doing something we all enjoy) This will also give them something they can show the Ole Man something about.
