    My mistake I wanted it in 45-120 but my gunsmith said it was too long to fit past the hammer, so we did it in 45-110. This was 20 years ago. Just a Green Mountain 18 twist 34 inches long. Even that was too much for me to handle so its now a 45-90. ...

    This was brought up on the Shiloh forum and Lee got a couple of good mentions. They have a brass drum and special wiper that wont crush the grains. I was thinking of getting one. All I am using now is a brass muzzle loader one onto a scale and...

    I have decided to go with Wano P. The other powders are faster but this is only for mid range. I have my 45-70 PP for long range. Nothing to write home about yet but 77 or 78 grains seem to be fairly consistant. I put the slug in the mould...

    As long as you stick to black its not a problem. They are a very strong action anyway. I have one in 45-70 and another in 45-120 and an original 12 mm like yours I shoot as a 50-70.

    No. I shoot at the Kilkivan range. I can not remember where I got the Swiss from. Three of us from here shot in the 2006 World Creedmoor match in Brisbane and we bought our Swiss before then. Some is in the plastic kilo bottle and some in the card...

    One thing I find disturbing but may not matter is that the breech bolt unlocks on firing. Seems to be mainly those factory slug loads, they have a bit of grunt. It unlocks and stops with about half an inch of case showing. One has to pull the bolt...

    I had some slight stock movement I wanted to get rid of. I bedded the tangs and front where it butts on to the receiver and put a through bolt in the stock that attaches to the tang screw. One of Mr Single Shots ideas. All is now tight. rebarrel...

    May be of interest. These cartridges are nearly 4 inches long and I have been trying to find a box for them. Then by chance I saw the boxes I use for my wifes 6.5-284. They looked pretty tall. Case Guard MTM H50. I couldnot use them for the 45,s...

    Just thought I would drop this in. Where I do my testing. Nice bit of shade but later when I go to 200 I will be out on the main range, no shade there. Its been 35 *C nearly everyday and bush fires all around us. You can see the smoke haze. ...

    It is time to prepare the 2nd lot of 50 cases. I bought a Lyman long neck size die and ran them through that instead of the sizer I made with the chamber reamer. Well thats all I needed to do. The cases fit perfectly with no further work. If I had...

    Well it looks to be a keeper:-) My Wad punch arrived from BACO so I quickly cut some .060 poly wads. Filled some cases with 80 grains of Swiss FF and Wano FF to see the difference. No lead fouling any more. The Swiss had little compression , the...

    Use it of course, with BP as was meant.I have 1867 Rolling Blocks I shoot with full loads of black. Rob Blomfield , a gunsmith at Pomona on the Sunshine Coast here in QLD does a great job in colour case work. A real specialist in old guns as well.

    Well the first shoot started out OK but quickly went west. I was trying out different wad combinations but my wad punch is just a hammer hit one and is a bit small I think. The wads measure .405. I gave up and went home to clean out the lead mine. I...

    I have been keeping mine in the little slide top plastic box that the 3 cornered lathe tool inserts come in. Each little compartment inside is just the right size . Holds 10 I think.

    Getting used to the scope but I need to think about a Tang and Globe. I have a tang sight that I think is a Hoke but these Rollers have a lot of drop in the tang and it looks like I will lose a lot of elevation. A Soule type sits the staff up...

    It came with a pistol grip stock that seems well made. Unusual design for a straight grip roller. Pics later.

    I tried that but it did not feel right. It was hard turning the belts and motor over as well so I hit on the method of keeping the tap straight and I could feel when it bottomed easier than by turning the chuck.
