.490 round ball is standard in a .50 CVA However as we know and I have had measured .501 to .503 are the actual diameters. My Question is has anyone tried say .500 and .01 on the ticking?
I suspect, that they used their rifling cutters until they were worn out, thus the varying bore dimensions..
Pedersoli barrels have always been a challenge to get the correct combination for the best accuracy. When still in business we carried odd size molds and cast balls just for the Pedersoli guns. We had customer from all over the front range of Colorado and Wyoming coming in for what was needed for their rifles.
That's a good plan that will benefit everyone.So much like the .490 round ball plan at least a day fitting patch/ball then another day shooting to see what works best. WAY COOL I will get the kids involved as well for the learning experience. Gonna be nice having kids involved from casting to shooting I want them to see, feel to experience what work and reward.
