    Consistent with my results from my 16" twist rifles. Seems that it hasn't really started to yaw at 50 feet. I really should get cracking on my project. Got a Stevens 44 action sitting here, and the donor barrels are in the shop storage room. The lathe has a reline job in it, which is today's excuse.

    Here is a target at 50 feet with a Ruger Single-Six and the Aguila 60 grain SSS ammunition

    Looks good, nice round holes at 50 ft.
    Hell, I was there!

    I had McGowen build a 1-14 twist for a lo wall 22 I had built, and while I haven't shot those 60 gr bullets at distance yet, they shot almost bug hole groups at 25 yards. Looking forward to some decent weather so I can try them on the 22bpcr rams at 200 meters.
    Long range rules, the rest drool.
