    M-Tecs replied to a thread BP recoil in Muzzleloading.
    Yep for felt recoil it's makes a notable difference. I own a Marlin Guide Gun, a Browning 1886 carbine and a Browning 1886 rifle. All in 45/70. The 86 rifle has a crescent butt plate and it brutal with anything over mild loads. The carbine has a...

    M-Tecs replied to a thread BP recoil in Muzzleloading.
    Yes, it's no different than the mass of the powder hitting a muzzle break. For the rocket motors orifice size determines the velocity of the ejectorate http://www.jacobsrocketry.com/rocketry_overview.htm "There is one more component...

    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.

    M-Tecs replied to a thread BP recoil in Muzzleloading.
    Pressure doesn't directly create recoil. A theoretical example would be if the bullet was locked in the cartridge. When the cartridge is fired it would just be a pressurized vessel with zero recoil generated. The reaction to the pressurization is...

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

    waksupi replied to a thread large throat in krags in Cast Boolits
    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...

    Yes you are reading to much into it. Winchester 1890 & 1906 pump guns are fine rifles but they were never intended to be competition target rifles. Match chambers and match ammunition have there place and they do have advantages for specific...

    I am not aware of any major weapons system adoption that did not have some teething issues. I sure it was the same with the 1911. GAO report here https://www.gao.gov/assets/220/210461.pdf pages 10,14, 15 and 16 are interesting. "The first...

    The 92 slide failure was a very real issue with standard M882 ball when it was first issued. After the issue first came up we had to track round count and replace slides a 3K. Old slides were returned. Not sure if they did anything else but...
