    I used the white, because I had a section laying behind my shed. Any pipe will work, or for that matter, anything that will contain the steam. A long wood box would be just as good.

    You need to fit your bullet to the throat. Try asking on the wanted section, you can probably find some samples to try.

    It sounds like you are going to need three different molds, or try to size down the largest diameter to work for all. A heavy for caliber Loverin will work well nearly every time. I like to take a fired case, and find a size of bullet that slips...

    waksupi replied to a thread F vs FF in Muzzleloading.
    You can use them, and they will be accurate with round ball, and there is no reason loads couldn't be worked up for shot that are effective. You would be working with lower velocities, and the coarser granulation you use, the more fouling. I use...

    Something to keep in mind. If you already have an accurate load, you will need to add 300 fps to appreciably flatten a trajectory. And then not by much. Then you are back to searching for an accurate load again. Better off staying with your most...

    Some of the best memories of my youth, were days spent hunting squirrels. Most of the time it'd be a a couple of us kids with assorted .22's and usually a shotgun in the mix now and then. It didn't matter to me back then what I was shooting because...

    I've done blond maple stocks, and in my opinion they come out a bit too light. They will darken a bit with age, but it does take along time. My fiddle that I left blond is around 20 years old, and it has gained a mellow yellow color over the years....

    If I need a larger bullet, I dissolve vi-ag-ra in some water, and soak the bullets. They only stay bigger for four hours, so you do need to shoot them fairly quickly.

    Missoula is only 30 miles from Montana. Since you will be so close, you should visit the state! Missoula is Berkley North. Quite a bit to see in the area. Phillipsburg is a nice side trip, and the nearby Granite ghost town. Garnet ghost town isn't...

    They don't know the rules until they have been there. We don't allow any .22 bores in our military matches, and the newest gun you see on the line is a Garand. We also restrict sporterized rifles. Those are a separate class that we shoot at two week...

    waksupi replied to a thread burnt patches? in Muzzleloading.
    I've used it in revolvers over the powder, rather than greasing the chambers. I was able to shoot more cylinders before the gun would tie up with fouling. I see no use for it in a long gun.

    As with any other gun, a longer barrel will give a longer sighting plane. My main smoothbore is a 42", and one of my most accurate rifles is 44". I have shot very short barrel guns that were plenty accurate, if you could get a good sight of the...

    There is a company doing it, just can't remember the name at the time. We used that method at Serengeti Rifles. You need a plank a minimum of 2 1/2" more is better, and a good resaw to be able to pull it off. You also need a good table belt sander,...
