    If you tap the wood handles off, they will fit in a small FRB.

    I never tried them in a pistol but in a rifle they shot ok, good enough for minute of deer but they loaded tight. All mine came out .501/2. Since they loaded tight, I had to use some force to get them down the bore and figured I might as well be...

    Your front sight should look a little fuzzy. You can't focus on to different distances at the same time. I see not reason a 32 twist should not shoot sabot well in the right combination and fit. I have heard of 1-48 twist shooting sabot well with...

    Well, when I stated suction, that was probably poor choice of words but I still believe there is a force to pull of push more powder out than when firing just blank powder.

    I gotta wonder if this problem would likely more from a fowling shot rather than a normal load wear you shoot a round. Just kinda thinking but I think the pressure from shooting a projectile would make the powder burn better and more completely plus...

    It seemed there for awhile, just before CVA quite selling sidelocks that it would put out a new (named) ML almost as much as people change their underware. Usually they would have one or two tiny little changes to it's style.

    Me too exactly. Mine shot both RBs and conicals real well. In fact I shot it at the monthly meet and everyone laughed at it's size until they saw I took two events with it. Wish I still had it, it's one of those that got away.

    The Mountain rifles were notorious for being inlet too deep. Easy fix was to shim out the trigger. The one I had if you set the butt stock down the least little bit too hard, the hammer would fall. I know you shouldn't be setting it down with the...

    IMO the 1911 is one of the easiest do do cast with. It is a low pressure round so you should be able to find a good cast load very easy. Some of the variables are more personal preference than they are best. Alox works fine but I got tired of...

    Hawken's were famous for their 1-48 twist, that's why most modern copies are the same. Not sure why CVAs weren't that way or at least at first. I think later on they did along with a few other twists.

    I had a box like that. It was actually a Stanley tool box but held allot of stuff. Also I could leave the bottom section home if I thought I didn't need it.

    That's a slow twist for 32 caliber. The smaller the caliber, the more twist is needed.

    Bring too much. Seems you can't have too much stuff to fix a problem like assorted tools. You don't have to have everything on your bench but if it's there in your vehicle you can get to it. Actually as I got older I started bringing extra guns....

    CVA's manufacturer did not incorporate the dat code into the serial number until the 80s, I believe the late 80s. They also did not have a "K" designator for kit.

    I don't like doing back orders. If they don't have it in stock, I prefer to look elsewhere or order later unless I desperately need it.

    How picky are you on the size? I should have some, I'll have to check but they probably run more like .310/311. They aren't pure but are soft.

    I would think, especially using BH209 you could just lube the wads and get away with it. Should be a little less messy. Cary the wads in a small plastic bag. I have used range lead for REALs. It does work, just a little harder to start. I wouldn't...

    mooman76 replied to a thread 98grn .32 hbwc? in Muzzleloading.
    1-48 is only a compromise in certain calibers. The larger the caliber, the less twist is needed and the smaller the caliber, the more or faster twist is needed. That is why most 32s are the 1-48 twist. But yes, the minies do better with a shallow...

    mooman76 replied to a thread 98grn .32 hbwc? in Muzzleloading.
    It depends on what you want to shoot. 1-48 is common for .32 but that is more of a RB twist but I have heard of some shooting conicals ok. If you are wanting to shoot conicals, I myself would want a bit tight twist, like 1-32 or 1-36.

    I have thought of trying it myself and even have them but just never got around to it. I see no reason it shouldn't work with the right barrel twist.

    I couldn't find anything current with 777 powder for a law suit. It was mentioned in the old CVA law suit and there is on for Boeings 777 aircraft. The one time it was mentioned the guy used 3 50gr pellets in the CVA which would be over the...
