    Ballistics in Scotland... steam bending wood veneer..... son of a gun, even if I can get the dimensions and try Wayne's method I think this method is worth testing too! Thanks for that suggestion! As for fakes, oh I am sure if there is a dollar...

    Not to leave anybody out, I'm really enjoying what I'm reading, and if any of my replies seem "aggressive" that isn't my intent by any stretch of the imagination and if I am coming across that way I do apologize. Larry Gibson I like that idea...

    I appreciate the link, and it is a curious item, but I am suspicious and my neck hairs are standing on end. Considering most of the video, and a good portion of the advertised kit show Lee Classic Loader parts (which I already have), AND at no...

    If the rust remover worked, cast one more in it and measure. As has been said 45-70 should be .457-459 depending. If it is still casting at 449 it was not for 45-70 and as mentioned MIGHT have been a 43 Spanish. Also besides measurement check the...

    Now see that is along the line I was thinking too (hoping Wayne will chime in). I thought about reversing it though. take four pieces of wood, match of the corners, round off and shape the outside after chucking it to a drill somehow. Drill out...

    I agree that I would not be afraid to shoot them, because (as was pointed out) corrosive ammunition just means you have to do a good job cleaning. I also agree that there is something historic about them that will be lost. I would NOT try to pull...

    Yes you most likely could, and you certainly could if speer ever made a .457 or .458 capsule to go along with the pistol .45 capsule for shot loads. However part of the appeal of the wood capsule is the historic value of it, AND it would be easy to...

    Couple of things that just dawned on me. I'd be curious what Wayne Smith (who seems as eager as me to figure these out :p ) and anybody else would think. #1 wonder what wood was used? Heavy and dense hardwood? Light softwood? #2 wonder what...

    Bruce Drake, yep that is one of the sites I found, but other than a few pictures and descriptions there isn't much there. No information on how they were made, dimensions on wall thickness of the sabots, load, powder, etc. I can't imagine that the...

    I ran across a new one to me the other day while going on a walk about the internet. At some point in the long ago past the US Govt made "Forager" rounds for the 45-70. These had wood capsules with birdshot in them, and I even spotted one mention...

    GoodOlBoy replied to a thread strange time at range in Our Town
    I used to shoot on a private range with a guy who would take all of his 44 special brass and "supe them up" after the fourth reload then leave them where they lay. I would find them and smash them before putting them in a scrap brass bucket. I...

    Well in April the wife and I passed the 20th anniversary. Why she ain't kilt me with a fryin' pan yet I'll never know. My vision is getting worse, so are my hands. PTSD is much worse, so is my depression. On the up side she is doing better. ...

    I knew some bowling pin shooters who used 45 acp, low charge weights and standard weight cast bullets who would drill out the flash holes to get more consistency out of low charge weight rounds. These things often looked like fat drunk bumble bees...
