    Not with BH 209. I've taken 50 shots without swabbing, and never lost accuracy. It also never got harder to load at 50 shots.

    So far my best is a 2" group at 65 grains and I tried this without swabbing and I want to try 75 grains again because the group was about the same, 2" but that was with swabbing so want to try with dirty bore. the thors go down a clean barrel hard so I didn't think that it could be done with a dirty one but in fact it may be easier. hopefully I will get dialed next weekend. Also I had adjusted my spacing so the primmer is tight so I have no fouling around my primers or breach I definitely like being able to do this with the cva muzzys. Here's some pics if I did it right.

    That's certainly a kill. You might also try some JB Paste to smooth out the bore. 20-30 strokes should be enough. It might help it load a bit easier too.

    Don't be offended, but is the group size partly you?

    No offense taken, I started second guessing my scope and my self.

    Its possible but I shoot my rifles well with A scope free hand and on the bench. With that sad I have a 20 gauge bolt slug gun that shoots 1" group but to do that I have to pull down on the for-end a bit to manage the type of recoil (lift). I have been doing the same thing with the muzzle loader, maybe I should let the for-end free like a rifle on the bench. Im using a zero kick rest. There was a slight breeze to consider. I have all day sunday.

    So 2 inch group with a peep and 300 grain thor .500 the .501 may be just to tight. Then I find out that thor 300 grain are out of stock. Hope the 250 in .500 will group as well I have only shot them in the .501. time is getting tight, but I will get it in time.
    He may have just enough for me.
    Thanks for all the help.

    The final tally is good news the 250 grain thors are a go, and terry has plenty of supply in the 250,s. If I had only tryd them in the .500 first rather than in .501. I would have saved some stress and $$ But regardless I am happy. Final just over a one inch group at a 100 yards with a peep.
