    My Dad's first combat was Guadalcanal and he didn't care much for the Japanese either. He mellowed some by the time he passed. He had some interesting insights about the Wildcats and P-38s in the diary he kept while on Guadalcanal. Bob Bob

    One of the problems with the printed word is that you don't have inflection that would clarify some comments. When I read my posts before posting sometimes they sound different than I mean them to be so I try and use an emogee to help get my idea...

    Jack, we RARELY NEED another rifle it is just a good idea. I sold a number of guns last spring that I hardly ever shot any more and turned the money into this Shiloh Sharps in 40-50. So far it has been a hoot to shoot. Bob

    I believe that the way you make your Charcoal will make a bigger difference in consistency than the density. JMHO since I haven't tested that theory. I have tested my powder against 2 store brands and found that the difference in velocities when...

    The recipe is in deer camp, 170 miles from here, also where I squirrel hunt. We slow cook them in Chardonnay along with some vegetables and pour over mashed potatoes. Best to just quarter them, not as many bones that way. I got the recipe from the...

    Pistol and rifle twist for the same boolit are usually different, but all you can do is try it and see what happens. Years ago I tried shooting a 38-40 boolit in my 40cal ML with a 48 twist barrel. For the most part it shot minute of deer. About...

    Probably true, even a big vice might do the same. To be honest I haven't felt under powered with the powder that I've been making since I use it for hunting. 2 deer and a bushel basket of squirrels sure couldn't tell the difference. Bob

    With that twist it will like slugs better than RBs. Probably made for a mid or LR gun. Deer Creek made their own barrels before it was sold. They had 2 rifling machines on site. I have had 2 of their H&A RB guns in 50 cal and they shoot lights out,...

    I had pretty good luck from a Lee REAL in a Euro-Arms 2 band musket, in fact it shot better than the Minie's. Bob

    Scored a decent 8 point opening morning with the Shiloh. 325gr boolit over 50gr of OE 2F. Now to work up a load for the 400gr Steve Brooks mold for silhouette and mid range. A little bit of a challenge since the Marbles tang sight shot 5 inches high...
