    I meditated on this yesterday. Seems that, since I am hopeless, 100% guilty, if He truly judges me as I judge others I'm better off! It's Christ that makes me acceptable, I can't.

    I just ordered some 30-40 brass from Cabelas. I had some credit there and got that and 7x57 brass - 50 of each.

    If the barrel is marked for caliber I'd keep it true to the barrel markings. You are just the current custodian of this fine rifle.

    It was a combination of high impact on the forcing cone and the barrel erosion from the powders used that wore out the earlier versions of the S&W guns.

    Now this one I disagree with as written too broadly and not even seeing the lesson in the text. It isn't "Don't judge", it is "judge justly and carefully being very aware of your own vulnerabilities". In another place we are positively told to...

    Wayne Smith replied to a thread Baker Rifle in Muzzleloading.
    What I quoted above was written by Baker himself and was the users manual for the rifle. Mallets were initially issued but withdrawn and the rifle was loaded with a rod only. I don't expect the movies to get it right. When loaded with the paper...

    Mine was set up for scope but needs a rather high rear bell to clear the handle. I got away with using an old (my father's scope on his 336) bear cub (Redfield, I think? - mid 50's) that is a 4 power scope. All my other scopes were too big or the...

    Are you adding weight to meet some sort of standard or do you just want to shoot the rifle without pain? If the latter consider that the 405gr boolit was standard for the carbine, the 520gr was too heavy and created the exact problem you have. My...

    You are new to the site - so realize the primary critical measurement is the diameter of the boolit. If the diameter is correct weight is controlled by alloy mix - the greater the percentage of lead in the alloy the heavier the boolit will be. All...
