    I agree with the round lead ball, especially in .22 or .25. 209's should have plenty of snap to send that ball flying. Cost is still likely going to be more than .22lr but it is an interesting project.

    Some might say the 12 will carry a little farther. I've shot lots of stuff with both, from Canadian Honkers down to Hungarian Partridge. The 20 will do the job, and it will do it with a little less lead, and powder. Not a big deal for a box...

    how much, on average, would a gunsmith charge to do 2 crossbolts? or maybe just one through the bedding block if that's the best place?

    I'm not a vet, but if I am out in public and see one wearing a hat I have often taken the time to walk over and thank them for their service. I was 4f when my classmates were getting drafted for Nam. I did not serve, but not because I did not...

    Fast powder to go slow, slow powder to go fast. On the fast side I like light loads of Red Dot, but most of the shotgun/pistol powders in the faster burn range can be made to work. If you want more speed then look at the slower burning rifle...

    ok, because in the future if I convert it to a 416 ruger, it will probably need them, or at least one. I intend to do a lot of shooting in the 9.3 barrel before I do that. ik just wondered if it would be a good idea since I intend on shooting 286gr...

    GhostHawk replied to a thread recoil in Single Shot Guns
    You can make almost any rifle bearable. I have a .444marlin handi rifle that is a pussycat. But I am not shooting factory loads either. Essentially shooting moderate .44 mag loads in .444 brass. .357mag with light bullets and 4.6 grains of Red...

    I don't have a .44mag handi rifle. But I do have a .444marlin handi rifle that shoots .44mag loads in .444 brass. I like the lighter weight 220 grain Truncated Cone. It is in a Lee 6 cavity mold, does very well. Shoots well. I also have the Lee...

    I have noticed that, unlike the cz550's in 375h&h and up, which have to crossbolts through the action, the 9.3X62 does not. I was thinking that it would be possible to install them, to protect the stock from cracking, and otherwise making for a more...

    Waiting to see what they come up with for rifles caliber wise. But color me interested. I have a definite "thing" for unique single shots. At 800 to 1k$ which is more fun, 4 of those in 4 different calibers? Or a baby Rolling Block? Tough...

    Yes it will hold an edge. I have at least 7 or 8 around the house. I do like to put the knife in a vice (padded) and take a small file to the back edge. They tend to have a rounded profile. For ferro rod work and scraping fatwood I like a...

    Look em over carefully in bright light. Modern pewter will say it is pewter and is 95% tin. And the other stuff won't hurt ya none. As mentioned above, soft, bendable when thin/flat. Low melt point, silverish color, if more blue and no hallmark...

    I shoot my .357 handi in .360dw brass also. They tend to have a long throat. I played with a dummy load until it would just snap shut without leaving rifling marks on the bullet. Then used that dummy to set my dies. 3 in one hole at 50 yards,...
