So I shot my new 16Ē .44 first time ever today. Iím not too confident in my own abilities with this wee little rifle so I brought my own target stand to set up a 50 yard target on the 100 yard range.

Gun ran fine, no issues. Loading gate was tight but once I got the hang of driving the shells in then up it was easy. Gun is tight but cycled 100%, no issues.

The cheap 900 FPS rounds were a delight and had no recoil. The 225 grain Barnes copper solids shot well and didnít have too much worse recoil. The gun actually performed best with a box of Hornady lever evolution 225 grain ammo. Itís actually funny because my vision sucks and the people next to me were commenting on the insane report of those rounds going off. I thought Iíd go check the target and see I shagged rounds all over the place but it was a decent group. Iíll post that pic below. All of the rounds did well, didnít bring a ruler but all in all it was all 2.5-4Ē groups, which isnít great but 50 yards offhand itís minute of pig.
