100 with a Pedersoli Mortimer Target .54 rifle0 Views
Here is pic we received from Hungary, From Balazs Nemeth. He shot this excellent group with his Pedersoli Mortimer rifle at a 50 m offhand (MLAIC Pennsylvania) practice session practicing for the World Championships. His load was 49 grains of Swiss No. 3 + 18 grains corn meal + .535 roundball with 0.38 spit patch. Don't know if it is 100 or 99, but it's an excellent group for sure.
