That's for sure ! :mrgreen:DrMike":300jk1pm said:The accuracy of that load is certainly good enough for hunting. All of us want cloverleafs, but reality intrudes when we are in the field. A coyote's chest will permit some larger grouping than most of us would care to admit.
Mmhh, normally two shots in a row, followed by a 2-3 minutes pause...DrMike":300jk1pm said:What sort of time did you allow between shots?
Why's that ? :mrgreen:DrMike":300jk1pm said:I'm wondering if you were testing the rifle or testing the rifleman with this test.

Nothing like a seven year-old thread to shine the light on change. I'm now using LT-32 in my junky old 788, but still shooting 50-grain V-Max. The LT-32 won't get anywhere near the velocities X-Terminator give, but accuracy is unmatched---in my limited experience. I shot 5 five-shot groups to verify my charge selection, and they averaged 0.44 inch 8ncluding a 0.62 group that I am sure was my fault. I'll bet a good shooter could wring about a 0.3" average out of it.
Charge weight is 21.0 grains for anyone interested. Velocity was just shy of 3000 fps which is a bit low, but I'll take that accuracy any day of the week!
