    I finally think I have my ROA dialed in????

    I was getting 2-2 1/2 inch groups shooting from a sand bag at 25 yards with the following load:

    30 grains of Goex 3f BP
    10 grains of cornmeal
    Sagebrush lubed wad
    Hornady .457 ball
    CCI #11 mag cap
    Bore snake down the barrel after each cylinder.

    Changed to Speer .457 balls and CCI #11 regular caps and my groups went to 5 inches.

    Would a different brand ball and cap make that much difference??

    What kind of accuracy with what loads are you other ROA shooters getting?
