Video - The mighty .58 Roberts Remington rolling block
« on: May 08, 2020, 01:45:03 pm »
It's been a while since I shot the .58 Roberts RRB. I'd not chronographed this rifle before, so was curious what it would do. I was pleased to find this load of 60gr of Goex 2F under a 494gr bullet averaged 1139fps. Not too shabby!

Yes, it has a bit of whomp to it. Of all my rollers, this one has the smoothest action of all. Its as smooth as butter.
