    Tom W. replied to a thread Light rust in bore in Muzzleloading.
    Try Rem Oil rather than WD-40. If left to sit for any length of time it will turn hard, orange and difficult. For cleaning I'll use what I learned from the NMLRA magazines, very hot water and Ivory soap, and use gauze instead of t-shirt or...

    I loaded up 10 rounds of 30/30 w/ 33 gr of H380, and 10 rounds w/ 30 gr IMR 4895 and the same RD boolits. I dunno how they will shoot, and it's probably a moot point as the rifle is reamed to 30/30 A.I. But I had to do something in the shed...

    All B/P side-locks have there quirks. It appears yours OP has to do with its preferred Patching lube. I have used this Track product for years in Northern MN in its extremely cold weather. As that is what Mink Lube was designed for. To be...

    I leave mine plugged in and turned on. The only time it gets turned off is when the power goes out. This has been my SOP for the last 10 years at least... And contrary to the information that came with it, the fluorescent lights don't bother it...

    I bought an NEF Handi Rifle when my youngest son was maybe two or three years old, back in 1981 or so. I don't recall any brass having to be discarded. I did have to learn to load on my own, so I got quite a few lube dents in the shoulder area, but...

    Tom W. replied to a thread Cast iron skillets in Our Town
    My late wife bought an enameled Lodge CI pot that I used to make chili in. I'd put the burner on low and fill it with whatever struck my fancy that day. It was always delicious...... One day before she passed she turned on the burner under it and...

    I have a 25-35. Not a carbine but a original long barrel 1894. I much prefer a 30-30 over a 25-35 although both are-equally close range accurate. The 30-30 has the better of the two bullet selection for Big Game. The carbine model 25-35 was...

    I cast em, lube em, and tumble them lightly in BLL to seal the lube. It doesn't remain sticky or dry out then.

    I lube the inside of the case with set of Midway brushes and some RCBS lube. The outsides , depending on what I'm loading, will get rolled on the lube pad or some Imperial wax. I found out that too much lube on the shoulders WILL cause lube dents,...

    I just stuffed a few wax wrappers into the lubrisizer, I supposed they would melt and blend with whatever was in there at the time... I did this off and on for a few years. Nothing scientific, nor was there a lot of wax at one time. The cheese was...

    I really don't know much about em. Like the OP I thought the same. (entry level lever rifles made by Win) Although I have occasionally over the years seen other hunters tote em in the woods for deer. As I recall nothing fancy just a plain jane...
