    Would you kindly explain how you could score 93/100 with 13 shots when the possible for each shot is 10 points? For 13 shots a perfect score would seem to be 130/130. :confused:

    NICE shooting! What are the secondary smaller holes on the target and what is your shooter?

    We reuse targets that aren't shot out. They're just 22 holes from a previous shooter that i didn't bother patching out since it easy to spot the difference lol

    What do you mean, my shooter?

    Thanks junkman, thought I was clear. Freddy, we have so many names for gun's over here it would take a book to complete the list. Gat, Peacemaker, Equalizer, Rod, Smokewagon, Saturday Night special, etc, etc..anyone else want to enhance the list?

    Freddy, I didn't realize that Walkers were used in serious competition. I thought 51's and 60's were preferred for open tops in that category.

    I did the gold inlay on my Colt Dragoon, and silver on my Colt 1851 Navy. I think it looks good. But the more I see :scrutiny: of the Walkers with the white metal cylinder, no bluing, the more I am liking them.:cool:

    New Member, First Post

    Good afternoon Ladies and Gentleman. And a Happy Thanksgiving to you all.

    I ran across the “The High Road” a few weeks ago and have enjoyed all the posts and information. I have a Ueberti Walker, so I thought I would make my first post here.

    I purchased my Walker from Cabellas about three years ago. I shot a few rounds through it and put it away. This fall I took it out and sand bag tested it for group, and across the chronograph. Because real black powder is impossible to find in this area, I am shooting Triple 7 3F at the recommendation of a friend.

    I started with fifty grains and the gun shot a six round one hole group at fifteen paces. It seemed kind of hot so I started backing off. At forty grains, the group opened up a little, and it felt a little more reasonable. The chronographed difference was only 36 fps. There was still the big roar, lots of smoke, lots of flame, and lots of fun. I figure I can always go back to fifty grains if I need to shoot horses in a combat situation. In reading the posts, and I have not read all 129 pages, it appears other guys/gals who shoot triple seven settled on forty grains.

    This is my experience with the Walker. I also shoot and 1851 Navy, and 1860 Army.

    I am aware of the Walker Club, but people tell me I “do not play well with others.”

    Take care and have a happy holiday season.

    Earlier today I was directed to some information on the dating of Italian proof marks, by which I was able to date my Walker. It turns out that it's the same age as me, having been made in 1971. This is rather pleasing, particularly as I encountered it by chance.

    My Walker

    Scrat

    Here is the picture of my Walker you requested. It looks kind of plain though after seeing the gold inlayed Walker you posted. I think I will keep it plain.

    Crossfire, the best way to keep a shooter. Many yrs ago a very good friend of mine got a new 44 mag revolver and had it gold inlayed, looked beautiful til he ran a box of ammo through it. I've also seen a few very high end inlayed shotguns with bits if inlay missing.
