    I have been using The TC T-17 for black powder with good results. I swab it out before I put it in the car after a day's shooting and then when I get home, I take out the nipple, give it a couple of swabs and then dry until the patches come out...

    I hear some are using it in Martini-Henry 450/577. I need to check that one out. I wouldn't see why it wouldn't work in cartridges. It works great in small & large bore m/l rifles & small to large shotguns of the front stuffing variety. Lights...

    I have the one with the safety on the bolt & the dovetails are definitely oversized. You would really make a mess of things trying to pien it down tighter. I just now ordered the Skinner front sight in hopes that it solves the problem. Too bad...

    I see a lot of that stuff about how holy black being the only way. Unfortunately, when someone is looking for an answer to a question about using a substitute and the "keyboard commandos" kick in their 2 cents, it gets really confusing. It's good...

    Well I have diesel pickups, that's right I said more than one. I have them because I never know what I will find and load in the back. One truck weights 8900 pounds which is empty to me. The other I have to admit is more of a 4x4 car so far. I have...
