    I assume you're talking about the big one with the recoil spring? I love the scope and have one on my 50's vintage Gold Cup Rifle. Let me check as I believe a friend has the manual. May I ask do you have a specific question about the scope? The...

    Dryball replied to a thread Cart paper in Muzzleloading.
    You really don't need nitrated or flash paper, although it certainly doesn't hurt. I use rolling papers and lots and lots of people use hair-curler paper. If you want nitrated paper IIRC Buffalo Arms has it and tons of stuff on youtube. Best of...

    You don't really need a "death grip"...it will take some getting used to but try this; wrap your weak had over your strong and apply pressure with your weak hand and use your strong hand to "steer the gun." Also, lock your wrists and not your arms

    Let's say you had the opportunity for a gun dedicated to smokeless patching with a 26" barrel. What caliber (in a bottle-necked case) would you choose and why? I am still leaning towards the .338-06 AI but am still able to be swayed. Whatever I...

    tdoyka...congrats. It stinks having to wait that long. I just ordered an MGM today and he told me about 3 weeks and that includes the work Mike Bellm will do. Mike is next door to MGM. Hopefully you won't have to wait the full 6 weeks

    Very good points. That's why I wanted to kick my idea around here. I never gave the 38-55 a thought. I have one in a Win 94. I swage for that one. Hmm, I still like the 338-06. I should do a poll and whichever caliber wins I go with that. lol

    Sorry . I forgot to mention it was for a rifle around 23". I was thinking along the lines of a medium to larger bore round. Was planning on a Bargera or MGM barrel. I thought about the 338 Federal or 358 win but wanted advice from people that...
