I have a rear peep sight on mine and that cut my group size in half.

Reflects my experience form 1992

Ran my 50 caliber 20" MK-85 with 90 grains of RS Pyrodex 240 grain swaged .429" hollow point in the green sabot.

Very accurate with the gold bead, rear peep combination.


So, how did it do as a game getter?
