    It cleaned off without a problem :) You can click on the picture and I think it might bring up more.

    It don't get a good cleaning to often :) I used one of those small one gallon vacs and ran it between the concrete floor and the paneling where things get swept under out of reach of a broom and that was enough to put the vac out of commission :)

    Lead pot replied to a thread rifle barrels in Our Town
    I have used two for bench rest. One in the .222 and the other for a .22 hornet. I don't think you can find a better barrel made.

    If you want to tell me what your shooting and load powder/bullets I can give you some sight setting come ups that will get you close enough to at least kick up some dust.

    Pretty much what Don told you. I been shooting the Quigley since 2005 and seen just about everything as far as weather except a snow storm but heavy hail one year as well as very strong winds enough to roll a pop up camper and tents tore up but it's...

    I will add one word of caution on this subject. And don't ask how I know :roll: Just don't use a shop vac cleaning the mole den floor. You might blow the lid off the vac. :???:

    And then there is the person coming from behind and standing along side watching you shoot the flintlock that gets the education what not to do.

    It pretty much takes a hot red spark to set off blk powder. The plastic bottles the powder is shipped in is a static resistant plastic like what is used working with sensitive electronic components. (grounding shields) I stuck my fingers in the...

    Jim, That Metford bullet I have shot past 1500 yards, 1585, with my 19 twist in the .44-77 with the bullet at 1.325" and I will say that it will connect with a Buffalo in the vitals and put him down if you do your thing. I used my Shiloh Hartford...

    For the 19 twist .44-77 I use the #1 type nose in the Brooks adjustable mould set at 1.325" and it drops a bullet at 485 grains with my alloy. I don't even try the #3 or the #4 in the ..44-77 with the 19 twist. It does not push the bullet fast...

    Jim these are the bullets I use for long range in my .44's 16-17 twist and the .44-90 BN 19 twist. They all shoot very well except the far right it was supposed to be a prolate but it did not make that grade. :) it looses it at the ram line if the...

    Jim, It won't take a month to get that rifle going. I would be willing to say after the first ladder load outing and one follow up of the best load with one below and the other above the best you will know what to use.

    Jim, I'm glad I had the foresight when Bell still made the .44/3-1/4 basic brass fo get several hundred and also picked up more .44-77 and .44-90 from Jamison. I have two .44-90 bn's and one .44-77 with another coming soon in twists 16, 17 and 19...

    I have to ask if you really use those loads under black powder. You are in double charge loads for the .45 ACP and over loads for the .44 mag. 10 grains of bullseye has to be over 34,000 cpu with lighter bullets than used in the .45-70.

    Keith the tight spot at the end of the muzzle could be a choke build in. Has it always been tight? if mot it could be lead build up. That will show up when you push a clean cotton patch through. If there is lead it will leave a gray streak on the...
