The gun in the picture is a Colt New Frontier. ;)

Correct. Thanks all for the advise. I was hoping for some action with it this spring...but I guess I will have to use the camera till aug/sept!

You can always go out and practice with it and get it dialed in, that's always fun.

With that gun not being as strong as the Rugers I would suggest a lighter weight bullet than what I have been using. Perhaps a Keith style bullet weighing 270 to 290 grains. Let me know if you would like load details.
