    A fat one was looking in the window a half hour ago watching me feed May Bell. Probably jealous.

    3.) Idea mould- 456121 no handles. Appears to be New, old stock. No sprue plate. $35. Shipped Is this what it looks like? That's a variable length design so how many grooves it has determines the weight.

    There's deer tracks all over my front yard. Sometimes they hang out by the back deck and give the cat bad dreams about prey animals that don't know their place in life. The better 2/3's yells at them out the bedroom windows to stop eating her...

    Dang it. Dug through all the toy boxes and don't have a suitable scope without pulling one off a rifle. Now I have to figger out which make and model.

    The hard part can be getting the boolit to load straight in the chamber. Especially so seeing as many reproduction revolvers have chambers than are less than .45". Sometimes the best way to go is sizing just the hind end of the boolit to less than...

    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...

    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...
