    The arguments arise from preference for claiming that chain fires occur only through ignition from either the front or the rear. No one who hasn't staked out a position should take either to heart before ruminating on the likelihood that ignition...

    Heh, I expect this is going to be some kind of fun shooter. REAL's, round ball, minies, maxihunters, lubed, paper patched, plenty of molds to play with.

    Needed #8-36 screws for the threaded scoping mounting holes. Ended up had to get 3/4" long and work the length down to fit the holes and the thickness of metal on the mounts. And the socket heads were too big in diameter to fit in the countersinks...

    Yep, just gonna have to try it and see. Being a TC all I have to do is drill holes through socket head set screws to make a handful of flash hole liners. Hopefully the lateral thrust from the flash hole will not require windage...

    My catchers tend to be temporary constructs fabbed from castaway materials. If a sample needs to be recovered for examination something gets cobbled together like milk jugs of water backed by either soaked bundles of waste paper, shredded paper or...

    I use a 9/16" gasket punch. How well your wads work will depend some on what you make them out of, how deep the rifling is, dry or lubed or soaked, all that jazz. Something I've tried is that spongy paper stuff that egg cartons are made of....

    Well, what I been thinking is that when I get on out there distance wise the small differences will be magnified just like with any reloads. And that the flinter flash hole is large enough to produce substantial back flow which will not behave in...

    Hey there. Just asked 'cause I'm working towards getting a fast twist flinter working. I'm anticipating variations in elevation due to irregular back flow. But puffs in the puddin' so we'll see. And my new glasses should be in next week so maybe I...

    Are you seeing any significant vertical stringing at longer ranges?

    Has anyone concocted a specialty boolit / over all length loading to provide an improvement in .45 accuracy with the Judge type revolvers? A cousin has purchased one and it's got me wondering what would work better. Extended brass and hollow...

    To each his own. For a cast bullet deer rifle I designed for accuracy and excess power for 200 yards, my personal shooting accuracy limitation in the field. Turned out I never dropped one past 130.

    I've tried various combinations trying to get Green Mountain .40 barrels to shoot other than round ball, with varying degrees of success. Lubed lead, paper patched, more powder, less powder... Getting consistent enough results just never happened:...

    On small diameters the flat moving a little bit towards the center rather than being tangential makes for an oddly flying projectile. In a percussion revolver maybe it wouldn't matter? I'd rather smoosh a sprue under the plunger.

    Got a 2nd hand Lee .319 to lap out. I'd much prefer to have a mold that would include a sprue as opposed to an oversized flat spot on the front of the ball. But I'll make it work.
