Ok boys, how'd it go?
How many competed?
Who took the top score?
Well might add top shooter was using 40 cal.
Any photos of the M5 targets shot?
no we didn't keep them , should have .
I shot a prototype .40 Knight 500 in the M5 match . Conditions were not that great ( a bit windy ) My score was 238 out of a possible 250 . I can not say i shot the .40 that much better than a .45 . With my .45 Knight 500 shooting a 300 grain bullet I have shot scores in the 240s . But... I was able to shoot close to the same score with a .40 and a 250 grain bullet .
40 vs 45 they both work and work well . It is just a personal preference.
Doug can you say what the twist is of the .40 Knight 500 you shot?
And any muzzleloader less than .45 is illegal to hunt with in the state where the shoot was held. When is Indiana gonna get with the program???
My Knight 500 is a 1-16 . I have shot 275s,300s and 312s . They all are stable with this 1-16 twist at 100 yards . When I get time I want to shoot all those bullets at 500 yards . I am very curious if the 16 twist gun will handle the heavier and higher BC bullets beyond 100 yards . The 312s leave the muzzle at 2250 I think they are down to 1500 FPS at 500
I do not for sure! but. were a betting person I bet they will be fine!
