    Accurate Mold clone of the Ideal 375166 - MOA out to 300yds and drops Rams at 500 meters. Not satisfied with a 380 base, depending on the alloy to be used - ask Tom to make it bigger. It's my Go To bullet for my HiWalls ...

    that happens all the time. this is all akin to some people asking "what's the best ... ?", when the "best" is actually elusively quite personal and the questioner should just be seeking guidelines as in "please help with ....". in my PPB...

    yes DT, time always seems to be the most elusive stuff of all. in comparison, all the other stuff is relatively easy. ;)

    all of this is about guidelines. guidelines are just that - stuff that might work for other people. all of this reloading stuff is fraught with some measure of uniqueness. testing stuff out on yer own is where your rubber meets your road, and is...

    Considering the .358 Win is based on the .308 case, I disagree. .358 Win is probably the finest cast bullet round you can chamber for.

    I recall a so-called gunsmith who drilled through the barrel of a Sharps to mount sights. First shot, the sight took a trip.

    +1 on using a good bore wiper AND a patch popper. one swipe of the delrin rod does it all and saves time best used for aiming.

    if ccw isn't a concern, any reputable full size 1911 would be the way to go. however, being able to digest hard ball, cast round and swc, hollow points, and whatever else - that might be an issue. had that problem with both remington and ruger...

    rfd replied to a thread What type of lube in Muzzleloading.
    the bottom line truth is that your gun (and if course, you) will need to see what patch thickness and ball size it will prefer, for consistent accuracy. how you would like to load may bring about a compromise of accuracy and easy loading. ...

    Black powder shotgun reloads will always have more foul in the bore than handgun loads. Why? Because part of the foul will be material from the hulls reloading with paper or plastic hulls or the fiber wad I too shoot SASS with BP reloads using...

    all interesting comments and dialogue. that's good and that's about all. with a black powder PPB cartridge the bottom line to me is that once a slick and patch mate well, and are harmonious with the bore, all is good 'n' happy and load testing for...

    That's the right way to do it. Also notice the notch on the front of the cock. If you guns don't have that, get out a file or Dremel and do it. It directs fragments away from the eyes, and helps split the fired cap for easier removal.

    it also depends if that misalignment is vertical or horizontal. if vertical, moving the drum/bolster up or down to square up with the hammer's cup would be the easiest to fix, but typically, it ain't that easy and then out comes the torch .........

    i had that misalignment of hammer and nipple with a .32 crockett kit 3 years ago. propane torched the hammer red hot and bent it with a vise grips 'til it hit the nipple square. worked just fine.
