    Hi all,

    I'm getting ready to finally shoot the Hawken and have a question.

    While looking at the load data for 50 cal. PRB, there are 2 Muzzle velocities
    listed for each load. For example: 70 grs. FFG lists 1643 fps and 1050 fps.

    Is one for cap lock and the other flint? Seems like an awful lot of deviation.
    I saw no explanation in the manual (may have missed it though).

    Many thanks,

    Bob

    Note the column headings and the units; 1643 fps is muzzle velocity and 1050 ft lbs is muzzle energy.

    Hi mykeal,

    Both headings are written Muzzle Velocity.

    ZZZ, mykeal,

    Many thanks.

    My manual is just typo-ed throughout the loads section.
