Its not a bullet problem you can shoot that out of your hawken muzzeloader your problim is getting the pan powder to ignight your powder in the barrel you need to make shure powder never got damp now on your hawken you have a removable torch hole were the pan powder lays take that out and just drill the hole out bigger not much just a little bigger in the part you took out this will make your hawken fire without any problem i have done this to many hawken rifles and its like night and day how it fires hope this helped ya out and good luck

    now i just saw it said nipple caps so if it is not a flint lock try a new can of powder or new nipples and make shure hamer is droping and hitting hard make shure hammer spring is not weak if nipple caps go off and powder in barrel dont try new powder or make shure rust did not build up and block spark to barrel you can find that out buy make shure gun is unloaded and force air down muzzle and feel if it come out at the nipple hope it helps ya out

Why does my 30 yr old redfield, widefield ,range finder accu-trac scope that has operated great for all these yrs, now I cain,t get it hit in the same zone a target. The rifle is clean and operates great...


well if the bullet hit is jumping about its all down to your scope,,,it could be that its just "lose on its mount!" or its died on you,,like the cross hair is bouncing about inside the scope so with the recoial it jumps into a new place with every shot fired there by giving you a new point of impact,,,
this can happen if the scope was wound right up or down or left or right and strain was put on the adjusters,,,you may need to buy a new scope,,,,a good "air rifle!" scope will work quite well on most full bore rifles,,,yer right i here you say!!! ok,,iv got air rifle scope's on my .303 + 7.62 + 22-250 + .357 under leaver marlin cowboy, all 3 of my .22 rim fire's and they have been on these rifles for years now,,,1000,000, of rounds fired so far, with no problems! and no drifting so far,,,
an air rifle scope is very strong you know,,,but they only cost £150,00p or less for a good one?????
ps,,,,dont buy a tesco scope there cra*y

Global Hydronics GH4000 with leaks


My advise is this: STAY AWAY from Global Hydronics, Bio Heat, Wood Doctor, and Hawken Energy. All negative stuff out there on them. See arboristsite dot com for more information that is being posted search for Hawken Energy, you'll find it. The only real solution is to sue these companies as they have neglected customers for years, over and over again. It has been posted that Hawken Energy uses an "independent" report that claims Hawken is the best in the business, they are not!!! By the looks of it, the owner of Hawken Energy made up this report and is using one of his other business to promote it. This is pathetic.
I say stay away from Global, Bio Heat, and Wood Doctor, as It would seem that Global hydronics makes them all, at least they all look alike, and the warranty complaints on the internet name these companies as being the worst. Hawken Energy once sold Global Hydronics units that they relabeled as their own, but did not tell the costumers this. I guess they even printed a flyer that changed the model numbers, but when you got the unit on your land it was a Global Hydronics and not a Hawken Energy. One or more of these companies is being sued now. Nothing good to say about one of these companies. The whole thread over at arboristsite should be read as it uncovers a lot of information these companies did not want the public to know about.

Model 342 Benjamin Franklin 22 caliber air gun


I recently purchased a rebuild kit for my 342. I bought the kit from airgundepot. It was the kit for the
392 and I modified it a little. On the new plunger, you have to drill a hole in the center of it the same
size as the pin's smallest diameter. You can use all of the parts in this kit except for the small o-ring. I think it sold for about 39 dollars or so. My rifle was manufactured in 1972 and it fires like new.

New leupold scope


You may need to purchase a base with a built in taper to help zero your scope. Look for "20 MOA scope base" if interested in purchasing. Go Here:
