    rking22 replied to a thread Lee "real" bullets in Muzzleloading.
    Could it be the differences in the Lee molds? Curious about cast diameters. I am a round ball shooter, so the interest is academic only :)

    Well, I ran across another M141 today. Got to reading and wondered how the bear hunting went?? Oh, as I stated before, I tend to buy these when ever I see one. Yep, my new one is a 1948 vintage 35, and it is unbelievably clean, the original stock...

    It’s not, the lighter 7/8 oz load does pattern tighter but it is due to less deformation of the shot from acceleration, less inertia. Also the commercial international loads are all with hard shot, which also reduces deformation. A 7/8 load at 1200...

    Well made gun, many of the lesser priced hunting guns of that period put their modern “betters” to shame. I refinished an Iver Johnson Hammerforged a while back. The interior components were all stoned to fit and properly hardened, once cleaned up...

    Personally, I like raw eggs, but I hate milk! I have found that I have very little stomach issues since I quit drinking soft drinks.

    Have you taken a couple shots on the pattern board to check point of impact ? Lots of times it won’t be what you think it is. Don’t aim it, just focus on the boards “mark” and put about 3 shots on it from 20 yards. You want to have about 60% of the...

    Very interesting idea, I will be converting a half dozed 327s shortly. I suspect the size discrepancy could be spring back, perhaps anneal the neck area first???

    I love this forum, 100% good advice. 7/8 oz of shot, the international load at 1350fps, breaks bunker trap targets with authority. Bunker is a much more difficult game than ATA trap. Twice the angle spread, 50% more target speed and there are 15...

    I suspect lots of the small parts may be common. Seemed you needed a hammer and that is definitely different! Glad you got it back running, blackhawks are dime a dozen unlike ROAs! Get the Blackhawk, next year :)

    Thanks, Larry Gibson, more valuable data on some well known loads. Since my 44 specials are both 5 shot midsize guns(GP100 and 696), you have confirmed these loads are more than I want to put thru them. And, even better, a quantifiable value to make...

    Excellent! Glad they fixed you up, I was under the impression they no longer had parts. Glad that is not the case. They are very good shooters, if a bit on the heavy side for carry.
