    I am the one that started the sizing with the Lee 500 S&W bullet. There are a couple things I would look at. First, Hardness of the bullet is NUMBER 1. If the lead is much harder than 5 to 6 BHN or .035 to .035 on a Cabine Tree tester the...

    The 1-30 twist guns will say "45 cal LRH". I use the Paper Patched RCBS 11mm rifle bullet paper patched and sized to .446 with a .500 felt over powder wad with a pinch of Bore butter. I use 80 grains of Pyrodex P. The mould is a 370 gr but with 8...

    Quite a BIG difference in cost! I have enough Goex for a loooong time, but my curiosity is sure peaked, even though I don't use sabots. Still yet, I am interested in seeing what it might do with a PRB. Reading about it is one thing, actually...

    idahoron replied to a thread Stuck minie ball in Muzzleloading.
    I have used the grease zerk method and it is hard to beat. If you try a ball puller and you end up with a hole through the bullet to allow leakage you will not get the grease zerk to work. The neat thing about the grease zerk method is you don't...

    I actually thought about using a punch but the reason I didn't was I wanted to swell the nipple down farther than just the lip. I wanted it. To grab inside the entire length of the inside of the cap.

    Rodwha, just because it's a "smooth bore" don't let that hold you back on distance. My experience tells me that distance is established as much by the shooter as the type of gun being used, and only the shooter himself, shooting the gun in...

    I did a video this weekend, I was shooting the Hot Rod Hawken. The test was how many times could I shoot the Hawken before the accuracy fell off, or it hang fired and I missed. https://youtu.be/su-1Ql-Nhtk
