Big Elk Medicine Rifle, .58 caliber, 1/72 twist, 36" barrel. I use 120gr of FFG and a .575 ball with pillow ticking patch.

Audacity, and again, audacity, and always audacity.

Too bad you aren't closer.  We could have another challenge, splitting a round ball on an ax breaking 2 clay birds.

Just got back from the west side elk hunt and didn't have a chance to launch one.....

.595 ball over a .015 cotton patch with Ox-Yoke lube over 90 grains of 2f Goex out of my .62 caliber Green Mountain barrel, 1:72 twist, T/C Hawken percussion

We'll see what happens during the late hunt....
