    rusty - call henry and have them pick it up and fix or replace it. there's no excuse why you need to accept a production line lemon.

    cookies are built on the fly, into a loaded case. drop fill the powder compress with a wad (the cookie bottom), use the case to grab the grease, add the top wad and press in, add the PPB.

    You'll get no argument from me about having a Henry single shot able to swap out barrels. However, even without that bbl swap ability these guns at their street price point of under $400 are great values providing the obligatory trigger/hammer...

    ironic that the 18th century hotbed of colonial freedom has sunk to the depths of stupidity it's enshrined in today. the declaration of independence signers are rolling in their graves for sure.

    didn't have a creedmoor version, have had a .45-70 bodine 34" and three 30" silhouettes in both .45-70 and .40-65 cartridges. the 34" bodine was a bear for offhand for me, the 30" barreled guns were fine for offhand at 200 yards for me.

    what i meant is that BACO offers their various caliber compression plugs for various manufacturer expander die bodies - lyman, rcbs, redding. if you already have one of those expander die bodies, buy the appropriate plug to fit that body.
