    Seeing the impact of misses is great feed back. Good on you for taking the effort of making your range fun and useful.

    You could size bullets down to what?, .219? after making them.224. But it is an extra step over just making them .219 I the first place. If making .224 bullets is also in your future, it seems like a pretty good plan to avoid buying two sets...

    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.

    Yep, they do that. People around here open the hoods of the vehicle when camped in the back country. The pack rats prefer enclosed spaces

    I didn't find much, if any difference in the roughened balls. Both the smoothbores I have at the time shoot like rifles, so what would I do with a bit more group tightener? If I am on target, they are going to hit.

    I don't think it was made for trade, as the gun has much nicer engraving than the Chief's grade guns.

    Steel wool will not cause a problem, as long as you let the previous layer of finish dry completely before rub out.

    Well if I was doing it, I would take piece of 2X4 lumber and cut a hole in it with a hole saw as close as possible to the diameter of your cylinder. Then cut across the hole with the grain, a rip cut. This piece of wood will allow you to grip the...

    I seem to recall some models of Toyota had a sludge problem. Do a search for it.

    You could purchase a .373 chucking reamer for about 25 bucks. If it was my pistol, I would chuck the reamer and work it down each hole of the cylinder by hand. The existing holes would be good guides, don't force it, and don't sweat a few...

    waksupi replied to a thread Fedex failed claim in Our Town
    I've started claims before, and have found out they were delivered by the post office, rather than Fedex. Since I don't go down the mountain often to check the mail, I didn't know it had been sitting in my mailbox. Just another time in my life I...

    I'd won a pair of new cast iron skillets last year. Both were rough on the inside. I took one to the shop to smooth it out, left the other one rough. I used them equally, and the rough one seasoned much better and faster than the smooth one.

    Brian respectfully asks that his secrets not be given out. One quarter by one is truthful. I will not give you three digits to the right of the decimal.
