    Firing a .30 carbine Blackhawk with “full charge” loads is unpleasant without adequate ear protection. Lake City 1944 Ball ammo gave 1586 fps from my 7-1/2” Blackhawk, versus 1981 fps from a WW2-era Inland US Carbine. Cast bullet loads in my...

    Outpost75 replied to a thread Lead bullet in Leverguns
    Original blackpowder loads were either pure lead or lightly alloyed with tin, either 1:75, 1:50 or 1:40, depending upon manufacture. I use 1:40 tin-lead with both smokeless and black for hunting ammunition, good accuracy and bullet performance. ...

    I had a similar problem with a Ruger Vaquero in .44-40, cylinder throats were .425 and barrel groove .429. Chamber necks in cylinder were also tight at .444" so these had to be opened up as well as the throats. John Taylor corrected the...

    I have shot and own several examples of both. I’ll take a #4 Mk 2 over any Swede if my life was on the line. My Swedes are beautiful and capable, but it’s the Enfield for me in this hypothetical situation.

    Imagine that hitting a large bone in a deer or similar animal at bullet velocities. It would disintegrate, losing all it's mass and ceasing to create a wound channel. Where something a bit softer would expand and stay mostly in one piece going...
