Re: My T/C Scout 209 conversion pic heavy!

batchley1972,

Sorry no updates. I hit a road block with the velocities out of my pistol and the bullet I wanted to use. It works just fine other than no safety. I figured if need be I could always prime if a shot was ever presented

How is the eye relife on that scope. I have a Simmons 4x and I am not impressed with the eye relife.

Has anyone noticed if it makes loading any easier?

Re: Another sabotless Test (Oregon-Colorado)

Any data on the low end velocity for good expansion? I am looking for an easy to load sabotless bullet that will work in my 209 converted T/C Scout pistol shooting pellets.

Re: Federal 50 Caliber Muzzleloader Bullet Revisited

No, i haven't contacted Federal. It occurs to me that this may not be a good bullet to use in your hand gun A muzzle velocity around 1200 fps may not be enough. Have you considered something like a 250g XTP, or some such? Over the years I have shot most everything available. The reason for these is...

Re: Two new Lehigh Prototypes Bullets

Definitely interested in the .500 x 260 sounds like it may work in my Scout pistol. I did try the Hornady FPB's and they were tighter than I wanted. The accuracy was good!

Re: Federal 50 Caliber Muzzleloader Bullet Revisited

HMM? If I recall right 1150-1200fps MV Is right about the velocity I got from my Scout pistol shooting 90 gr 3f and #11 caps and 290/300 grain bullets. I was hoping for better low velocity performance from these. I will be doing similar testing soon. My initial session showed promise for accuracy ou...

After pushing the bullet down with the ram rod the few taps with the hammer seemed the same as though there was no crud ring buildup.

Re: My T/C Scout 209 conversion pic heavy!

I am moving away from the loose stuff in this converted Scout. This Scout seems to have bore damage which I can't see because of the pinhole in the closed breech and I do not have a bore scope. My last session last 10 rounds I cleaned the bore well and shot 10 rounds without cleaning. I did notice i...

Re: My T/C Scout 209 conversion pic heavy!

Range report, I shot the conversion 18 rounds with one 50 grain 777 pellet with no hangfires. I shot the Federal Bor Loc bullets. They loaded very easy! My last 10 rounds I cleaned the barrel before and did not clean again. I still felt I needed to tap the bullet home after pushing it down which may...
