    Looks like they updated their webpage in the last couple days. I’m automatically logged in so I didn’t get kicked out. It’s kinda weird trying to find things on the updated site.

    H4895 shot 3/4” group at 100 yards with my cast vs varget all on the same hole so it’s a good second choice. Tri State told me they got lucky when I asked about the powder so i would assume they must have just got it in. I’m guess they get it a...

    I tried some last year but never used them for hunting. It didn't have acceptable accuracy imo...2 1/4" at 100 yards VS my 300 grain TC shockwave that all shoot in the same hole at 100 yards. I used three of my TC original black tc sabots to try...

    I put a red dot on my 8 3/4" anaconda when I bought it back in the 90's. I can shoot first sized groups with all six rounds free hand at 75 yards along with j words when I use to shoot it all the time. I'll have to try cast in it.
