    Kinda rough at 50 to 60%. I collect and wouldn't give that kind of money for a carbine model even if President Trump was its owner. 1000 to 1200 max I'd say is fair & equitable for such condition 1894. No Gun Value books here. Only my intuition...

    OverMax replied to a thread Boolit in sabot in Muzzleloading.
    If you can find some? (hint: EBay) T/C Break-a-way sabot are the best I've ever used. All the other sabot available today are simply clones of each other. As far as cast materials: BHN for hunting purposes. A touch of clip-on wheel weight added to...

    All my ammo is marked on their Base: Head stamped (originals) are >Green sharpie. All other substitute brass > Red sharpie. Just so all you know: 32 special brass re-sized for 32-40 use I consider target shooting cartridges. I will bother to...

    I've been told that the wall thickness in wadcutter brass is consistent at least 1/2 way down the case so that it doesn't deform the Boolit. After measuring a mixture of standard brass (Star Line, Winchester, Blazer, etc.) they all measured .010"...

    99s are a dandy rifles for those who like to move about quietly thru the woods instead of perched in a tree all day every day. Although due to the cartridges short neck it does take a little extra time learning the in's and out's of its reloading....

    OverMax replied to a thread molds for 32 win spl in Leverguns
    My opinion: Not all that many molds were produced for the 32 spec. I get by with a long ago discontinued lyman 321297 G/c mold. As far as what is available today. The only mold manufacture who usually has a decent selection of cast weights for the...

    As I recall Treso once made such short starters. I still have one. Given some thought I believe I bought mine off EBay.

    OverMax replied to a thread 45 TC Hawkin in Muzzleloading.
    Having a cheater peep mounted will undoubtedly enhance target shooting as will a future planned scope. Having two Renegade 54s. I wouldn't mind following suit. But I haven't got the courage to try. (re-shaping their stocks.) One Renegade of mine...

    Always have used CCI #11 Mag caps on my T/Cs. 11's were mounted on Knight's {slender looking} Red Hot nipples. Thinking back. Quite a few CCI's were given the OverMax treatment for looseness. i.e. A slight squeezing between my Eye teeth for their...

    OverMax replied to a thread Win 94 action question in Leverguns
    Lever actions. Quite similar to today's push feed system observed in a bolt gun. Controlled round feed: is a entirely different system of loading.

    Have a pre model 64 in 32 special made inbetween the years of 35 & 1936. Have shot it only a couple times with Remington 170s. Targets ok. About the same as a 30-30 but no-wheres requiring the rear sight ramp on its highest notch. More like mid...

    The center line alignment pins are a dead give away to it being a late '71 to '74 mould. The later models were made with typical alignment pins like Ideal & Lyman. This mould should have a good collector value, especially in it's current condition...

    I found with my 44 mag rifle the best weight to use was what typically is seen on shelves. Tried 180 gr. 200 gr. (225 were reasonable accurate but 240 jacketed gave the best overall accuracy. With a mold purchase having the same grain weight (240)...

    OverMax replied to a thread 2f vs 3f for 50 cal in Muzzleloading.
    Both Black & its substitutes target equally well. The only noticeably difference between Black and Pyrodex. Black is a bit forgiving when it comes to timely fouled barrel cleaning. Pyrodex isn't. When you read of some others barrel taking on the...
