    I want to use 50 caliber round balls as all my guns except the slug guns and my chunk gun are 50 cal round ball. A new barrel would be nice but whatever I get will be cut to 16 inches or so. A twist rate of 1 in 48 is okay as the maximum distance we...

    I want to shoot it in our Schuetzen matches but the organizers won't let me. The main reason is how do we measure holes that big! Plus it doesn't use a cartridge, big deal! The original owner I was told had a John Unertl scope on the rifle when...

    I've taken my 22LR jacketed 40 grain bullets past 4100 fps with my 1-12 twist 22-250. Rpms kill bullets, not speed. If the quality of your bullets is good, I rather doubt you could push 'em fast enough to spin 'em apart with a 1-12 223. 320k rpms is...

    I have assembled one of the first 100 T/C Hawken kits a racing buddy gave me. It had great instructions with it and I have pretty much followed them with the "kits" from various suppliers and then made several slug guns from scratch. Here's what I...

    At our monthly pistol matches we have several single shot users. The most accurate is one from England that won several world championships. Bill got them in the estate sale after the owner passed away (old). The stock fits his hand like a glove,...
