Default Lyman Great Plain Rifle .54 Cal Range Trip

I am totally happy, I mean really over joyed with my results... not only with my Lyman Great Plains Rifle, but the Substitute BP AKA Alliant Black Mz. No scrubbing between shots or after 5 or 6 strings, but I kept shooting about 20 shots down range, no muss or fuss.

The first 4 shots at my AR500 steel target, one of them second punched over the other.



Clean up after all that shooting was a snap, unlike using real BP.



Will I continue to buy Alliant Black Mz, you bet.

Just for giggles, after we were done shooting with the muzzleloader, I brought out my Ruger GP100 6" and was hitting that 10" AR500 plate at 50 yards, with my reloads 158-gr SWC over 16.5 gr of H110... not a mild load
