Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

My new Beaumont Vitali.

#1 Post by KneverKnew » Sun Apr 26, 2020 10:17 am

Here is my latest Beaumont. The first series of pics with red background are the ones provided by the auction house. The ones after are of the day it arrived. I also pictured it alongside my first Beaumont I got a year ago. I refinished the stock since it had already been sanded down and finished with an ugly brushed on poly stain. It was truly sad. But that rifle shoots fantastic with a shiny bore. I only hope my new Beaumont shoots as well since ill need to sell the first one now to recoup some of the expenditure. The new has a nice shiny bore too. It also came with bayonet. As discussed in previous post, the. Leaning rod is fake.
I’ll be making several posts to get in all the pictures.

Picture post 4
Taken on my deck as I shot some loads I had laying around.
My cast 400 grain with 28.5 grains IMR4198. Shooting 50 yards they grouped 3”. I expect to do better as I work up. My first Beaumont grouped 1-3/4” at 100 yards with 30 grains.
The out door lighting makes the while metal and wood grain show up better.
