    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.

    I don't think people around Moyie Springs check the mail often. A friend from there ordered an item from me, that I finished and mailed. He called two weeks later, asking when it would get there? I checked tracking, that showed it had been delivered...

    I can relate to being bored out of my mind with the drivel on TV. It's hard to find decent Bluegrass with banjo and fiddle and a big Tennasee Flat Top Guitar. I miss Johnny Cash and some of the great people in the music world of those years '65 to...

    Thick at the breech and muzzle, with a taper to around 2/3 length of the barrel. Think of it as a waist. Makes for a light, very nice handling rifle. Definitely my favorite to build with. Do a google, you should be able to find good images with...

    I'd personally go with a heavier bullet. 200 gr. would be nice. Here's a friend of mine who took a stag in NZ a few years ago with a flintlock.

    Not all staff there are the same. I was having a conversation with Veral Smith on temperature, pressures and lubes, and found myself banned. There was certainly nothing out of line from myself or Veral, but out I went. Never did figure that one out.

    Actually, it turned out to be a pretty heavy rifle, so I will probably shoot it for a few months, then sell it to some young fellow. Too heavy for me to carry around long! I'm already plotting on building another with a slim profile swamped Getz...

    Well, you CAN put it back on, by cutting and sanding filler stips to glue in. Much better to do it right the first time. The strips pretty much disappear on a finished gun. Something novice builders tend to do, is to keep removing the inletting...
