t was a beautiful sunny day and almost 40 degrees outside. I mean ... this is beautiful weather. So I decided to march through the snow and set up some targets. I looked at the rifles and decided to try some conicals out of the Knight LK-93. This rifle was a second hand purchase by me and the original owner was not real kind to the rifle and the bore suffered. I had JB Bore pasted the rifle twice, but the pitting and such is still very bad. But I decided to see if conical bullets would shoot out of it.

I wanted to use some Triple Seven 2f 70 grains worth. The .503 No Excuses conicals fit nice and snug in the barrel. You could push them down the bore with a thumb pressure, no short starter needed, then the range rod would seat them.

I was surprised how little that bulls eye looked through a 1X scope at 40 yards. But I started shooting anyway.

Over all the rifle shot conicals real well. I am tempted to do a mild lapp of the bore and then see what the rifle will do.

Now that looks great for a pitted bore and all. From the looks of the holes those bullets are hitting real straight and close to each other. Maybe it was the snow that made them crowd together in the target for warmth. Lol

I wonder how well your Bighorn would shoot those conical bullets? They are a real deer stopper.

Cayugad that is a good question! Pop and I have only shot 300 grain XTP's but we may have to try those.

I do have some bore size conicals that are nearly 500 grains that I may try in the bighorn. I have to shoot it a little anyhow as I replaced the scope and have only sighted it in. Besides I want to try something with the bore sighter that I did not do before and should have. I laser bore sighted the scope at 25 yds but it was too bright that day to see the laser spot at 50 yds. I shot it at 50 yds and it was high and about 2 inches left. What I want to check is to put the bore sighter in the muzzle and turn it on and turn it all the way around to see if the laser spot moves on the target. Oh yes more to do so I can burn a little powder.
