Re: small bore?? ( Watson)

Hey guys just an update on the bullet size issue. I returned the ammunition that would not chamber in my rifle and the distributor also tried it in their display 1884 and it would not fit. Come to find out it was a manufacturing error and I received a full refund. I did get some brass, primers and bullets both 405 and 500 and the Lee Kit and loaded about 40 (already had powder for my muzzle loaders). She shot well, range was right about 50 yards, however she shot high and to the right. ( I assume that the base notch is set for 100 yards??) I only shot about 5 rounds of the 500 grain and yes she does kick. But probably not as bad as my coach gun with slugs. Yes there is mild shoulder bruising as well. :)

Look forward to shooting more in the future, thanks to all who gave suggestions to my dilemma. Fortunately it was the bullet and not the rifle.
