Made the MK 85 PR look better so it would Shoot Better

Some of you will remember that I picked a 'Project Rifle' - a used SS MK-85 that I got in trade for one of my Renegades. The rifle looked great on the outside but the bore is/was slightly pitted top to bottom. Just drives me nutz! but, anyway I am determined to make it into a shooter! I have already experimented with a bit shooting 50 cal bullets -sabotless.

The experiment continues - this is ...

trying my MK85 again

Ok guys I have shot a T/C Renegade .54 for years. Always used BP and Maxi-Balls. Bought my wife back in the late 80's an MK85 in 50 caliber. With the BP and sabots at the time I could never find a nice reproducible combo. So it has sat for years and I want to try it again in this years deer season. I'm leaning toward the bloodline sabots. My question is this, instead of ...

MK85 Stock

So my hunting partner and I both use a MK85 in .50 cal for deer in Indiana. Last year his stock cracked during reassembly. Does anyone out there have one up for sale? It was a black synthetic with thumbhole but it doesn't have to be the same.

Project Rifle in the Rock Pit

The rain has stopped for the weekend so I was able to get some shooting in this morning. Headed to Rock Pit about 9 this morning, I probably should have gone a little earlier, by the time I got there is was already warming up pretty good.

Got everything set up and the sun was beating down but I figured what the heck you are only going to shoot a few sabots anyway then move ...

Project Gun MK85/Wiseman 50 cal barrel

Project Report #2...

We had to make a run to Spokane yesterday to pick up a new freezer (the freezer trip was a bust - they sent the wrong freezer) but the trip was well worth while as I found out this evening...

For a refresher the project rifle is a older Knight MK-85 with a Wiseman 50 caliber barrel. It is the tightest 50 cal. Knight bore I have but I really wanted to ...
