I came across a deal on one of the forums I visit.. I am kind of excited about shooting these guns..

This is a Knight MK86 12 gauge shotgun with the turkey choke. I want to use it to see how far I can bust a gobbler with it. I intend to throw a RED DOT on it next week, as soon as I can get some bases for it. Then I will go out and pattern the shotgun.

Then I picked up this...

It is a 50 caliber CVA Tracker Carbine with a 21 inch barrel. I checked the twist and suspect it to be 1-32 which should shoot some conicals. I also have a CVA Stalker Carbine so they look nice side by side. I want to see how well this little stalking rifle will shoot.

Wow Cayugad looks like a couple of orphans have come to a caring home. Congratulations on those two. That CVA tracker looks a lot like my Traditions Buckskinner.

What kind of loads does your Buckskinner shoot? I was told by the prior owner that 80 grains of powder and a 240 grain sabot shot real good, so time will tell.

That CVA looks sweet. If you are shooting them things regularly, your lungs must look like a coalminer's! :D Don't start any grass fires with that thing. I'm guessing that it produces a pretty good flame with that short barrel.

Cayugad I can't help very much on loads. That buckskinner is the one with the very tight barrel that I used the JB Bore paste on but have not shot it since. About my best shooting load was about 70 gr of 2f Goex and a 44 cal bullet in a 45 cal sabot I wrapped the bullet with paper till it fit with the right degree of firmness. I also killed a deer with a 60 gr load of 2f and a powerbelt. That shot was over 80 yds.

this is my new rifle... I just got it today. It is a White Model 97 .451 with a stainless steel barrel, laminated stock, and a bold trigger. I mounted a Nikon 1X scope on so we will see if it is as accurate.

Cayugad Another one!!! best be careful that there is still room for you and the dog in the house. As I recall you have several whites now. As I also recall they seem to have some good results in the accuracy dept. Way to go.

I have two others... I might have to build another gun rack wall if I don't stop. So this is maybe the time to call my collecting quits.. :evilgrin:
