    I have one that reaches "out there" but the pain is not worth it. I have a Model 1885 in 50-90 Sharps and Kelly Soule Sights in Brass. This is one of the limited Winchester Series made in Japan by Myroku and it is a fine rifle in all respects...

    A proper cast bullet acts like a Nosler Partition, without losing the weight.

    I drove up the mountain to see the fine logging job going on. Well over a hundred loads of logs sitting on the decks ready to be hauled. Fire danger is now greatly reduced, hope they finish the section soon. Thought about burning a pile of old...

    I'm betting it's a 50-70, which is a good thing in my opinion. I do have a friend who has converted many old movie guns with bad barrels to .50-70.

    I usually loaded mine down to .45-70 levels. With Rugers, you may want to check if it was a model where the bolt locks when on safety, or not. I had a .338 WM that didn't, and found when in rough brushy terrain, the bolt could be pulled open...

    A few years ago, I had already shot smoothbore for score, and for fun went with a group of friends to shoot the course again. Being a bit of a smart ***, I shot the course left handed, and still beat the others scores! They are still whining about...

    I just take any scrap wood, and rough one out when needed. As we know, files and rasps aren't cheap. The ones I use most cost from $50-70 each. I also use Bogg's for sharpening.

    I wonder why that weapon was stored whilst not loaded? What is the point of having a firearm if it is not ready for instant use? They have these electronic boxes where you can store your gun and get to it in about 2 seconds. You can screw this box...

    If it's like one company I worked for, it would consist of inserting the barrel into a catch trap, and pulling the trigger.

    I'd mentioned that a while back, warning those along the Missouri River to be prepared with sandbags. There is a LOT of snow in the mountains.

    For those who leave a vent pick in while loading, if they will just give the gun a couple light slaps, or bounce it lightly on the ground a couple times to settle the powder properly, that is unnecessary, and gets the powder as close to the vent as...

    Most experienced flintlock shooters will not use lead wrapped flint. Several makers will not warranty their locks if it is used. I am one builder who won't warranty a gun that the owner uses them.

    I went west from Kalispell yesterday for a shoot. The snow is going away in my area, but I was amazed at how much snow is still on the ground just a little way west. And no one is giving Donald Trump any credit for ending global warming!

    This current gun is right on 8.5#. I would estimate the small profile barrel to make into a rifle of around 7 - 7.5#.

    When I rode in for my checkup the Doctor saw me getting off the bike and using the crutches to walk with. During my checkup he suggested that I curtail the bike riding for while as another mishap with this healing leg would not be a good idea.
