    NSB replied to a thread Cast bullets in 45-90 in Cast Boolits
    Oregon Trail bullets are available in both .458" and .459".....which one are you shooting? Also, as mentioned above, lower the velocity or use gas checked bullets. I've gotten "decent" accuracy from Oregon Trail bullets, but at much lower velocities.

    I've shot more .22lr ammo than most people on this planet. I shot competition for years and used to go through 35,000-40,000 rounds or rimfire ammo a year. I did that for years. I rarely cleaned the barrel on any of my guns, but I was extremely...

    You can't change the nature of the powder, but you can change the way you reload. I shoot several types of powder that can bridge or meter poorly (worse on some measures, but not accurate enough on any of them to suit me). You've either got to put...

    My extensive testing with a variety of single shot rifles says no, you don't need to crimp. I'm a bit of an accuracy nut, and I haven't found any improvement in accuracy by crimping. FWIW, I use a lot of WW296/H110 and it doesn't do any better with...

    Sabots come in different thicknesses and there really is no such thing as a true 50cal muzzle loader. Every manufacturer has some different idea of what the bore diameter should be on a 50. I've owned quite a few different muzzle loaders, every...

    NSB replied to a thread Any Roofers here in Our Town
    Water finds its own level. What do "all the trees" have to do with water running down hill? Trees don't make rain fall any harder or faster. Gutter pitch should be 1/2" for every ten feet. For runs longer than 40 feet they should be pitched from the...

    The drip edge has to stay over the gutter. At 24ft there was no reason not to do this. My house is 64ft and I had new one piece gutters put on and even on that length, the drip edge stays over the gutter the entire length. You got a bad install.
