    this is one of the places I sometimes wonder about. I have had ten pounds of foundry pure Tin in one pound bars for sale here for a month at $16 per pound. Shipping included if you bought all ten pounds. That is $3 a pound less than Roto Metals,...

    Wish I had known about this project. I have a 10-bore double SS. I have a couple of the British Paradox Rifle slugs from a gentleman in the UK who used to make molds. I wish someone here in the US would offer a single cavity mold. I have a round...

    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...

    The one I ordered from Skinner says it is .015" oversized. We'll see if it does the trick...hoping!

    that would be a good reason, but I was letting you know that there is also data beginning at .22 in those editions Loren

    I have not tried the Hornady 174's in mine yet, but I did procure some recently and will try them soon. I have been using the Speer 150 gr. HCSP with pretty good luck. I have gotten them as tight as 1.5" at 100 yds for 5 shots, but the norm is...

    Good shooting Dick. That 4 wheeler looks way to clean, but you got more time to get more blood and mud on it. JW

    For 25 ACP, both first and third editions have data for the 252435 51 gr bullet- the data is the same in both editions. That bullet does not show up for .22 Jet or .22 Fireball Loren

    I personally believe that most of it is "snake oil". However, I do believe in keeping clean. That means a shower with some sort of non-perfumed soap when going hunting. If one is out and about for a few days without shower facilities, wash up the...

    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...

    NOE makes a very nice 316299. Shoots well from my 303's. As Larry said, make sure your throat will accept .316, but I suspect it will. JW

    Hah hah salpal! It's kind of like the tradition of eating Lutefisk is for the Scandahoovian folks. Only black is good stuff for flintlockers and is generally pretty reliable stuff to boot. Pretty smelly for folks to have to endure who ride back...

    I have used the Black MZ in quite a few different guns with great results. Worked in rifles from .32 to .58 in the same volume as 2 f black. Also works well in shotguns. Went dove hunting all day without wiping between shots, nothing.. I used T...
