    Reverend Al replied to a thread 40-63 ballard in Leverguns
    There is a bit of .40-63 info on the ASSRA forum ... One of my Pacific Ballards is in .40-90 and I use 9.3x74R brass to fire-form "shooter" brass for it. I anneal the case mouths...

    It was a while back now, but I added another Ballard "project rifle" to my single shot collection. It's re-stocked in maple and the barrel was sleeved into .22 calibre, but unfortunately it's in a centre-fire (haven't done a chamber cast yet, but...

    I bought a Remington 700 Tactical with the heavy round 16.5" barrel and I love it ... cheap to shoot and tons of fun! So far I've been loading 150 grain jacketed bullets with Winchester 296 to fire-form the brass that was made from shortened .223...

    Back in my better days I would look for `Bubba` worked over Enfields like this to make into some very nice looking and shooting sporters. My favorite caliber for my rework job was the .338/06. I think $200 or less would buy it.Robert

    Reverend Al replied to a thread How did I do? in Single Shot Guns
    Have a look at the reference photos on this website for the "smallbore" sights. I don't know if they would give you enough detail to work from to try and duplicate one, but I see that some of the dimensions are listed in a couple of the photos? ...

    My 8.15x46R is an "H. Speeman in Neuss" Schuetzen. Still haven't shot it enough to really get onto it yet. I just know that it has the lightest set trigger of any rifle I've owned yet (and I've had a bunch of set trigger guns!). This one will...

    semtav replied to a thread Fluxing in Black Powder Cartridge
    I had a candle once that actually seemed to dissolve the oxidized stuff back into the pot, but still made a stink of the place. Most of them don't seem to do that good. The "flux" I first bought when I started, seems to work as good as anything....

    One could use 250 grain jacketed bullet loads minus 10% and work up for full effort loads. I shoot a 300 grain cast bullet load in my 358 Norma. I started 10% below heavy bullet loads and worked up carefully. Accuracy is good but I found my alloy...

    Out here in Western BC we have "ruffies", Blue Grouse (Dusky Grouse), Sharptails, and Spruce Grouse. Blues are much bigger birds and I've usually roasted them whole with a pan full of mixed veggies. Ruffies (and Sharpies) tend to be fairly small...

    My second outing with load development showed good results with 65.5 grains of powder at 3020 fps. For some reason the next time I went out with this load it showed a beautiful horizontal group, the vertical spread on these 4 shots was less...

    I don't know if it is genetics for the area but it was common enough in North Dakota that they changed the licenses from Buck and Doe to Antlered and Antlerless. I have personally killed two. One was a small rack 2x3 and the other was a medium...

    And if you have a number 7 RCBS shell holder and a set of 8x57 Mauser dies it is dead easy to form shooter 8x57R cases from .303 British.

    I am more old school I can run manual machines faster for most single parts. That being said with the new machines with good operators leave me in the dust.

    I've found several pumps that way, but most pumps won't reset until you recycle the handle at least once.
