Are you using the Blackhorn breech plug? I sighted mine in also last week. Blackhorn 209 and Barnes 290 grain TMZ. Shot about an inch group at 90 yards. Shot 6 shots with no cleaning.With only 2 weeks until NH muzzleloader, I tried the new Blackhorn 209 with the Barnes EZ in 250 grain. With 90 grains of Blackhorn I didn’t need to fiddle with anything! This is a 75 yard group. The “flyer” was a slight hang fire...no idea why that happened as all shots at 25 and 75 yds except that were perfect.
by slight hangfire I guess it was a fraction of a second between primer strike and boom. 1st time that has happened with this rifle.
Bullet went down pretty easy even on the later shots.
