    I have tinkered with a 32 auto a little, the boolit I use is a 85 gr. made from a cut down 100 gr. mold. I have tried to use the Lyman but it doesn't work in my CZ very well. I think 90 grs. is about as heavy as I would use in the 32 auto. I tried a...

    I have owned some sort of 223 for years, one of our most useful rounds in my opinion. The first was a 788 that I should have never let go. I now have a Savage Hog Hunter, it is a utility rifle and nothing to look at but it works well. The sight are...

    The last Remington I bought ( long ago) had a foil lining, I had to dig it out of the nipple. CCI worked fine but RWS worked best. Back in the 70's I used CVA caps, no liner over the compound, loose compound dust in the box, dirty and rusted...

    beemer replied to a thread Old eyes in Muzzleloading.
    Have you ever wondered how the old guys dealt with this ? My gunsmith knows I like muzzle loaders so he took me back in the shop and handed me a old ML. The rear sight had been moved forward and the slots filled several times. As some guy got...
