    sounds/looks like they're attempting to fill the defunct H&R gap. IF that's the same 'traditions' company that hawks those spanish built trad muzzleloaders, beware.

    heresy. just get a cheap lee mould and cast yer own, it ain't rocket science, a sprue flat on the ball don't mean squat, and there is no such thing as the oxymoron "round ball". :)

    of course .44mag will do for long distance silhouette, gong and paper targets, but NOT competitively, and that was my point and why i specified "bpcr/bptr".

    I already checked, the Chromebook 14 doesn't support this, with no time line for having one available. I'm leaning real strongly towards a Dell Inspiron 15 3000.

    They aren't hard to do, but are not a fail safe. I had one rifle with double cross bolts, that still split. A good idea with a heavy recoil rifle, though.

    I wonder what happens with the modern substitute powders? I have no knowledge of the detonation rate of that fake powder. I guess if you overload one, you will be notified by parts of the gun leaving the area at high velocity.

    Mauser - for starters: from the looks of the bullet you posted the grease groove bands are not filled out. Means your mold and melt are not up to the proper temperature (say 700 -750). So heat the melt & mold up and stuck lead should melt out with...
