    On the fowler I just completed, I did a faux damascus finish, and just let the color go to a French grey, but still showing the pattern. There is a pilgrim in the club who couldn't believe I wasn't going to brown it. When I told him many original...

    I went to slow rust browning, and no longer worry about it.

    waksupi replied to a thread Making caps in Muzzleloading.

    He is good, and has been a teacher to me for 35+ years of gun building. I'm happy I can teach him a few tricks now and then.

    It sounds like a lot of inter related issues. One easy answer, no problem with the half cock. Put on the cap, let down the hammer, bring it back to half cock. IF it's only going to half cock, DO NOT drop the hammer on it until the fix is found....

    The barrels will work fine. Like has been said, make it wider for stability and space. I'd go 6' minimum, and would prefer 8'.

    Denny is anxiously awaiting a new flinter that one of our members is building for him. I suspect once he gets it, he won't be doing as many videos!

    waksupi replied to a thread The last North Star in Muzzleloading.
    There is a sticky in this section on shooting smoothbores that will answer your questions, I believe. With no rear sight, i generally match or surpass my rifle scores at matches, shooting at the same targets. In most of the shoots in this area, no...

    Better method I came across I've used for the last few guns I've blued. Get a section of 4" pvc, long enough to put the metal in. Get a plumbing flange to fit the pvc. This will be your most expensive part, around $25. Find a pot that this will set...

    I usually use my lead that is suspect for other alloys such as Zinc, Iron, Copper. The weight will vary per alloy outcome, so a 255 gr. boolit may weigh closer to 265 gr. with a softer alloy. More of a WW based alloy will be closer to 255 gr. based...

    If you got them from Crazy Crow, they ARE steel, that have been brass plated. About the only source for real domed brass tacks, is to find an old steamer trunk, and pull the tacks. Things I learned from 30+ years of museum restoration.
