I've wanted a .58 caliber PRB rifle for some time now so when I got a chance to get this one.....well...here's the result thereof:

When I received this rifle it had a very small but definitive V in the rear sight blade and I had to work on it with a three cornered file to get it into the right configuration. Had to file down the front sight also and first two shots hit amid ship of the small buffalo silhouette at 60 yards. I wanted it about 2.5" to 3.0" high at that distance so a little more filing on the front sight brought it in to the right elevation. I was pleased with the remaining eight shots. Charge was 100 grs KIK 2F using a .570" swaged round ball.

That looks like a very nice group!
Makes me wonder why I do not have a muzzle-loader.

Yet ;-)

That's a hammer .57 and I thought a .54 was big. Nice shooting.
