New Remington Genisus Muzzleloader

5 posts in this topic

I got a new gun for Christmas and finally got out to shoot it. I know they say they come out of the box sited in. I have an issue with mine. I shot twice and the gun is shooting 10" low. I moved the site as far as I can and at 30 yards I'm still 3" low. I can't move the front site because it is a perminent mount. Any suggestions??? Do they make a shim that goes under the back site??

yep, more powder grin seriously though you need to post more info. what cal./size of round and how much of a charge are you useing. I have a few smokepoles and my bud has the gun you have and never had a problem sighting it in out of the box. I use Hornady sabot 250's with a 120 grains loose triple seven FFg (not FFFG too eratic) and it is a tack driver grin A hair high at 50 yards and dead nuts at 75yds. You have to tinker around with every one on an individual basis to find what yours likes but thats half the fun.

I was using Hornady sabot 250 but only using two 50 grains. I was going to try and drop another 50 but didn't have time. I know there are so many different shots to use. I tried staying with the stuff that came with the gun. Even in their video they put in two powders. I just thought it was odd. I did clean the gun good before hand and after two shots I cleaned it again. My groups were tight. Like I said now three inches low at 30 yards but will try and drop another powder and see what that does. Thanks for the help.

Don't get to excited to drop another powder in there. I have found that the extra powder is a waste. I have seen the biggest problem with most guns that shoot low is because most guns are not forgiving and most people do not get there head down to line up the sights. IF that is not the problem I would drop about 25 grains in the bullet before I start using more powder.

Try that and see how it goes.

Colonol, I have that gun. I love it, shot great out of the box. I'm shooting 250 grain, with 2 pellets (100 grains) of 777 powder. It is right on at 50 yards. I don't understand how it could shoot that low, but I doubt you would be the first to have gun issues.

    • Next up Grow Lights, I have a south facing window in my den that I use to start plants with. I have a big shelf at window height then I use glass blocks and put steel closet racks on top to set my plants on. I can stack about three levels high. Above all of this I have a three bulb flood light fixture This year I went out and bought three 15 watt grow lights. I had to buy some socket extenders so the grow lights would screw into the floodlight sockets. Tried them out last night and they are pretty dang bright. I am going to have them on during cloudy days and in the evening to see if they help promote growth. Any day now I should have some tobacco coming up and I will see if the lights help speed up their growth.

    • I think the Wild vs Jets games are pretty awesome atmosphere-wise. They have a lot of fans that travel down here for games too. It would appear to be a fun place to watch a game in Winnipeg for sure!

    •     Actually I haven't advocated anything. Just pointing out the War on Drugs hasn't been a success along with skepticism that anyone can "win" it   I'll leave the debate of legalization and the pros and cons of doing such to others    
    • The problem of prescription abuse has been recognized on a national level, but it must not fit the agenda, since there was no funding appropriated to go with the legislation.         On the national level, Congress this year passed the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act(CARA), which increased to 275 the maximum number of patients for whom a physician can provide medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid dependence. In a provision aimed at controlling usage and reducing diversion, the law allows prescribers or patients to request partial prescription refills and then opt to have the remainder filled within 30 days.

    •   They're legal until they fall into the wrong hands.  But I haven't heard of many cases where doctors or patients have ended up in prison for distributing narcotics.  So far, the suggested remedy for the epidemic seems to be for the states to set up online information sites so the public can be "educated" about the dangers of using addictive drugs.     So, apparently, armored vehicles, swat teams, and prison sentences are the answer for illegal drugs, and education is the key for legal drugs,
