Re: The Gun Room

I just simply need new eyes for shooting any kind of group anymore. All I see is a blurry back sight, a fuzzy front post, and a blob out there past 25 yeards. Lining up the blurry, fuzzy blob give me some semblence of "accuracy", but I'm sure a better eye would bring out the real accuracy.

You don't say what 240 bullets you're using. But, in general, the 1892 doesn't like semi- or full-wadcutters. There needs to be a bit of an ogive to facilitate the feeding transition from angled on the carrier to straight into the chamber. 2ndly, the clearance between the rails is critical to contro...
