    Boz330 replied to a thread Pedersoli question in Single Shot Guns
    Dixie Gun Works has Pedersoli parts as well. I broke a firing pin on mine last year and I got the pins from Dixie, everyone else was out at the time. BTW not a bad idea to have an extra firing pin for the 74. Mine broke in the middle of a match,...

    You can do this with boiling water as well. Clean the gun till you get clean patches. Dump a couple cups of boiling water down the barrel and then clean again. They will come out black as coal. That is how I clean all my ML since someone told me...

    Boz330 replied to a thread Pedersoli question in Single Shot Guns
    If it is made by Pedersoli I wouldn't worry about it. The big difference is the finish and wood. Mat finish and straight grained wood shoots as good as fancy wood and high polish at a much higher price. I bought a Hunter special from Cabela's on...

    I think this is just another "old wives tale" because Winchester introduced the 264 Win Mag in 1958 and rifles and ammo were readily available, then 4 years later in 1962 Remington introduced the 7mm Rem Mag. They did indeed just neck up one...

    That is possible as WC846 was a flattened ball powder

    I take it you've never seen AA3100, or MR 3100 or as it was originally marketed as Mag Rifle(not in any way to be confused with Win Mag Rifle from 1990's) AA3100 is an extruded powder very similar to IMR 4831 in appearance, kernels are of VERY...

    Looks like blue wax was dropped on the ingots while still hot, seems some ran down the sides too?

    I think you mean 4759. IMR4895 shoots 120 J-words very nicely from mine. Bob

    Pressure too low to seal neck to chamber, then gas flows back around outside of case. Sometimes when this happens you get a little puff of gas in the face too.

    The K-31 is a fine rifle and the cost to make that today, especially as accurate as they are would be astronomical. I paid $159 for a Walnut stock example and the first handload I tried shot a 3/8" group at 100yd. You might find a new rifle that...

    Yes, it looks like the flint is too long, and from the picture it looks like the frizzen is in the white? I have rehardened my frizzen 3 times and it is mottled blue or case colored after hardening. The photo is of a cut flint in it now but have...

    Dave is the token liberal in our group, don't tell him I said, other than that he is a good guy. Kenn is shooting the Ingram and quite well. He took 9 medals and 3 aggregate plates in the World Shoot at Camp Butner in 15. Did you know Dick Hoff?...

    The Lyman Postel is hard to beat for an off the shelf mold. If you don't have any casting experience you can find almost anything on youtube or here for that matter. 20-1 pure lead to tin as a starter. Get a Lee pot to start and after that you can...
