Took the Century Limited 1894 to an annual match
« on: October 18, 2021, 09:53:21 PM »
Took the old girl to the annual "Peaceful's End of Track" at Railroad Flat, CA.  I shot the first day Wild Bunch match with it, and most of the 12 stages of the annual match with it also.  Shot absolutely clean with it, including some distance (50 yard) targets.  MUCH faster than my beloved 1860 Henry, though the HRA 1860 is as accurate!

Initially I only planned on using it for the first day Wild Bunch match, but enjoyed it so much, I continued using it instead of the Henry for most stages of the main match.

It loved 7.0 grains of Trail Boss under a Bear Creek 205 grain. .428 bullet.
