Bought this W.W.Greener "Made for the NRA" Enfield 1888 Martini in 22LR and even though the barrel looked good it shot terrible, 12" groups at 100 yards.

I pulled the barrel to find a ringed barrel and washed out rifle in the first 8" from chamber end.

I decided to rebarrel with an old Anschutz Match 54 bull barrel I had bought 15 years ago. it came out well and shoots into one hole at 25 yards.

.22LR being such a well known black powder cartridge, thus ideal for discussion on a black powder forum?!  :confused:

Here is an interesting thread from another forum about loading .22 black powder cartridges. Got to try that sometime!
