I put a Hawkens together and it is shooting high then low, back and forth out of control. I read a post somewhere, don't remember where, and the guy had the answer to this problem. I'm shooting the old maxi-ball 320 gr. in a Green Mountain 1-28 twist barrel.

What powder and charge? It can make a lot of difference in accuracy.

I tried Pyrodex FF with a felt wad between 100grns. of powder and the maxi-ball. I also tried Goex FFF with a 100grn. charge.

Use a bore wad. Ox-Yoke makes a good wad.
