    If this is a .44 mag revolver, I'm sorry but I don't use those powders. Others will chime in before long. FYI, I do shoot the Lee 310 mold, which casts a smiddgen lighter for me than a real 310 grains, and I have had good success with 16.4 gr of...

    725 replied to a thread 777 question in Muzzleloading.
    777 is hard to light but when it goes, OH MY. It's energetic. Above is good advice.

    Haven't killed a bear with it, but I like the looks of the Lee 310.

    Now that looks positively mechanical. Did you re-hab that? If so, well done. It's beautiful.

    Easily enough. Black bears aren't hard to kill. Take your time and get a good shot placement.

    +1 ^^^. Pour molasses on a stump. Stale doughnuts, etc. Chain a barrel down and cut a restrictive hole in it and place bait within. Bear will have to work to get the bait out and thus give you a good long time to pick your shot.

    725 replied to a thread T/C Scout carbine - .54 in Muzzleloading.
    I hope that is it. I heard that early versions had a 1 / 20 twist.

    Would depend entirely on your purpose or intentions. I can see a value, fun & otherwise, for all of 'em. I just got back from the range with a new load for my .44 mag carbine. My intensions are hunting.

    725 replied to a thread mossberg patriot 7-08 in Factory Rifles
    Just wondering about the condition of the bore. I've worked on brand new Rem 700's that had machine marks that caused all sorts of problems. Fire lapping followed by some hand lapping turned it into a real shooter. No question that a truly...

    Considering the nature of very old steel, I'd tend to use cast in the .32-40 vs the greater friction caused by copper clad bullets.

    Seems if your #10 cap stands off the nipple, that might cause a momentary delay. If the #11 cap fits, I'd use it.

    I've been using the SS media for several years now and it's the best thing I've ever used in my 50 years of loading. There is a slight learning curve with the SS but it's nothing that any loader can't do. The biggest thing is cleaning your pins when...

    Jerry was pre-scouting for elk season. He had a buddy with him otherwise he'd be dead. Said he never heard the bear at all. He caught the movement just a moment before contact.

    The OP wanted thoughts about rifle vs shotgun, so even if I might want to carry a .44 mag loaded hot, just for the convenience of a handgun vs a long gun, I'm tossing my hat toward the 12 ga. roundball load. Shotguns can be shortened up to the...

    A thought about reducing recoil: Use a lighter bullet, drive it more slowly & make sure to "fit" it to the barrel. Slug the bore and go from there.

    I've used .30-30 brass. It just comes out a little short. Shoots fine. Annealing it does help.

    Yes, that is the bleed hole. When cleaning or changing lubes you unscrew this screw and use a hair dryer or heat gun to melt the lube and this hole makes it easier to clean it all out. Every person has his way but if you have solid sticks then you...

    Seems like the wiz-kids - bean counters never allow for the unintended consequences. They bought out a viable H&R Co., destroyed it with the intention of replacing it with Rem-lins, which sounds like an aggressive business plan, but sours gun guys...
