Lousy Accuracy in a T/C Hawken
I have the misfortune of owning a .50 Hawken that will not shoot either the round ball or the maxie. Wanted to use it for hunting but have lost confidence in it. Bore is perfect, no pitting and sharp lands and grooves. I realize that in order for it to group, the bore needs at least one fouling shot. This has held 1 1/2" at 100 yards with 80 gr of FFg and a maxie after the first shot. Run a clean patch down the bore, loaded it a let it set for a few days. It was still fouled since it needed that to group. Then upon firing it, it goes wherever it wants to. Repeated this a number of times and it doesn`t shoot even close to where it should. Should I use this thing for firewood and fish weights or does someone have a solution?
