    That sounds about right!!:kidding: I had one of the older Tritons 07 and it was nothing to write home about, this one has the Coyote motor, me like it a lot. Ford makes it- Coyote shakes it :-)

    Ford blue is great. I tried Chevy orange once and the towel got soaked in oil, danged bullets kept leaking.

    The throats on a revolver are on the front end of the cylinder(most are anyway, the 1895 Nagant is one exception)pin gauges are the easiest way to get a good measurement. You may find you have 6 different sized throats on a 6 shooter, not the best...

    I think the big thing about temp is the consistency of the powder lot to lot. That would be difficult to do in a hobby setting. Bob

    I would think that Mesquite charcoal would be too hard to make good gunpowder. You really need a fast growing tree to make the best powder. You should be able to find Tree of Heaven in TX. That stuff grows so fast you can stand and watch it grow. ...

    For Charcoal I've been using Tree of Heaven, it is an invasive species that grows very fast. It has outperformed the 2 different types of willow that I have tried. In this country high quality KNO3 and Sulfur are not hard to get. My 1st batches of...

    Read the thread in the Muzzle Loading forum, It will answer all of questions. The 1st few pages will give you the recipe and how to do it on the cheap. I jumped on board early 9 years ago. I use it in a cartridge rifle and ML. I have taken a number...

    Boz330 replied to a thread Gonic Parts Needed in Muzzleloading.
    The Gonics were a good gun but when the old man died and his son took it over he ran it into the ground pretty quick. I sighted a few of those in for the Outfitter I use to guide for and 4" groups at 200yrd was not unusual with the 50cal slug they...

    A lot of good comments. I have owned 2 RVs mainly used during deer season. I bought used and they came with their share of issues. The second and one I still use is 20 years old and I have spent more maintaining it than I paid for it. Every year...

    My Model 70 will shoot the Lyman 375449 like it's going out of style. 35 grains of SR4759 will drive it to 1950 fps. No leading, in fact, the bullet leaves a nice "star of Alox" at the muzzle. An absolute pleasure to shoot. By happy coincidence,...

    I've seen this before and it is pretty amazing what this country did during WWII. IIRC they turned out a B-24 every 52 minutes, think about that. There are somewhere around 4 million individual parts in a B-24. And we did that with everything else...

    Especially with the converted shotgun brass, they hold 115gr of store bought and the Martini ain't that heavy. I had a carbine for awhile but it proved to be waaaay too much fun even with the original load. Bob

    I tried that multiple compression idea but the accuracy went south so gave that up. I thought about using screened in my 577-450 but haven't tried it yet. That case is so big the fluffy powder should work out nicely. Bob

    Thanks guys. I have had decent luck with the Lee other than inconsistencies in GC fit from boolit to boolit. I would also like to have a little more production than a 2 cavity mold gives, even 2 of them. I was thinking a little more velocity would...

    Your mold temperature is too cold, maybe alloy temperature is too. It looks like your gas checks touch the top of the gas check shank on the bullet, and the bases with checks installed are concave, if so too large diameter of aluminum disc is being...
