Any thoughts???

X2 with the lead lapping and valve grinding compound. Good luck.

I used the valve compound lapping method on a TC renegade with a badly rusted/pitted bore. It did however open up the bore significantly. Using a .495 ball and .18 patch it is not as tight as I'd like and the accuracy shows. It does however, shoot the hornady penn conical really well. Thought it was hopeless, but it saved the barrel! I bought this rifle on GB, item description said "bore looks good" it was not. Luckily I only paid $180 with a 2.5x simmons in a TC one piece mount on it.

I used the longest machine screw I could find that screwed into my cleaning rod and used some aluminum foil on the end as a plug. it took awhile to get rid of those machines marks. I can still just barely see them in a spot or to but it is alot better than it was can't wait to get a chance to shoot it.
I even got the globe front sight put on. No more excuses now lol

I was thinking it would. I am curious to see what patch and ball size he settles on. And how much it changed.

I missed it above, i see now where you said Neatsfoot oil

I would try Stihl HP Ultra & Peanut oil as Patch Lube. Patch Lube makes a HUGE Difference

Do you have access to a Joann’s Fabric store? If so, Get yourself some Pocket Drill material and give it a Try, it is by far my Favorite stuff. Mine is .020 Thick

Well we are definitely on track now, I still haven't got a chance to get to the fabric store and get some pocket drill. I did get a chance to make up some more .015 pillow ticking patches made and lubed the with half husky 2 stroke oil "I didn't have any stihl oil" and half peanut oil. that made a big difference in loading. THANK YOU for the advice idaholewis on patch lube.

My first shot at at these target landed right in the middle of the stickers. I was aiming for the top sticker so I adjusted my sight up about 3" them shot the three shot group at the top sticker
.490 round ball
.015 pillow ticking
2stoke oil/peanut oil lube
over powder patch
80gn by VOLUME of swiss 1.5fg

the second group by the bottom sticker was
the same as the top group the only difference was that I used 80 gn by WEIGHT of swiss 1.5fg
that group measured 1 1/2" outside to outside and that was at 58 yards that is my best group out of this gun so far
