Sucess at the Range

Tried the Remington out today. Doc, you are right, it is a good gun.The CW guys were very helpful. One in particular spent the morning helping me and instructing my wife using his Remington. The loader worked great. I could load 2 cylinders while the musket people were taking a break. As suggested here I loaded 25 grains Pyrodex P, wad, and .454 ball. This was a get acquainted shoot. At 20 yds, hit a milk jug a half dozen times and a 2 liter bottle a few times. Fired about 30 rounds. My wife hit the target twice with 2 loads. We haven't been on a range in about 7 years, so were pleased with the results. The misses were not the fault of the revolver. Next time a bench rest and actual targets to test accuracy. But, I feel the sights are right on. My hits were not random, and were at the end of the session. Very pleased indeed!

Thanks again to you Forum members for the education. May have to buy the wife a revolver now. Any suggestions?

Good TR6

Nice that you can get involved in shooting with your better half.
