    On Browning's high gloss finishes they use polyurethane. Not sure on the 1895's. I am fortunate to have a dip tank that I use MEK for stripping epoxy and polyurethane. The above recommendation should work.

    The caliber is within 577 Snider dimensions and first thought was to use a 58 Mini but it's a little small. I have an old mold that I made years ago and is no longer used so will open it up. Thinking it might be around 500 grains. I'm getting to the...

    H322 was originally a repack surplus powder but it was not the ball powder Accurate 2230. H322 was surplus IMR 8208 an extruded stick powder from 5.56. When surplus ran out I believe Hodgdon had a replacement made in Scotland for a while.

    I had something close to your idea but not quite as large. I came up with a new box of 28 gauge brass and thought it might be fun to build a rifle for it. First thing was to measure the brass and see how big the inside diameter was, .590". Next was...

    Had a customer that paid $2500 for a #1& 1/2 and it had rust in the bore. Bunch of people told him not to line it because he would loose all collector value. I deal with several collectors and they would never buy one for that much with rust in the...

    Yes it threads into the front of the breech plug. Other versions use carbide bushings. http://arrowheadsporting.com/breechplugs.html Not sure what a flash hole extension is but these systems do reduce and extend the flash hole. Once they erode...

    "Perhaps there actually isn't any greater increase in pressure inside the primer? Or if there is an increase it is not a sufficient increase to pose any problem or danger." I don't know the answer but I tend to agree that it's not an issue at...

    Threads will be different, Ruger has 1 -16 and Martini has 1-14 and may be bigger depending on which Martini.

    Same cartridges are 65,000 PSI SAAMI. Priming compound will not produce 65K. With the smokeless muzzloaders some loads are over 50K using a primer designed for a 14.5K max cartridge. The small vent liners restrict the gas pressure enough so it's...

    For me with my current needs or wants it would be a 220 Swift. I love this cartridge. If you want something different 225 Winchesters are nice in single shots.

    I have a Browning 1886 rifle and a saddle ring carbine. Never had any issues so I never took them apart. I have no idea how close to original they are. I picked up the saddle ring cheap due to some deep stock scratches. Just picked up a blank...

    Comparing one animal to another means nothing. Comparing the same cut of meat from the same animal is easy. Age some, freeze some and prepare them at the same time. Question answered.

    John Taylor replied to a thread H&R huntsman? in Muzzleloading.
    The firing pin for the H&R muzzle loader is to big for a 209 primer, designed for a percussion cap. Many years back before all the inlines hit the market I was taking the H&R shotguns and making them into muzzle loaders using the 209 primers. Then...

    One more point on the tolerancing. Normally manufactures tend to shoot for the middle of the tolerance. With gage pins they tend to be very close to the plus or minus tolerance. A .0002 plus will be very close to .0002" over and a .0002" under...

    I think there are about ten different 40-70 chamber reamers with the 40-72 also fitting in there. The difference between a 40-72 and a 405 is the bullet diameter, both use the same brass. I did my Phoenix in 40-50 SS but have not made any ammo yet...

    I use 262 Loctite for liners. Never had one come loose and a bit of a pain if you install the wrong liner and have to remove it ( don't ask).

    36.5 grains IMR 4198? That has to be a typo.

    Either one will work for you. Most use the minus tolerance (.0000,-.0002) pins. The tolerance selection is mostly to ensure the pin tolerance doesn't allow a bad part. Example it a hole with 1.000" max and a .999" min. You would select a minus...
