    That’s a fine looking rifle. I think you did VERY well getting adjusted to irons from being used to a scope. It’s obviously a very accurate rifle too.

    I think true annealing of al. takes something like 750*. I simply heat mine for an hour at 500* in the same oven I use for ht of my boolits and let air cool. It hardens the checks enough for my loads. Some folks put them inside threaded pipe with...

    The Lee 356-120 TC shoots best in mine. The 6 cavity is much better in fit and finish. I can empty my #20 pot in an hour with about 700 boolits. https://leeprecision.com/mold-6-cav-356-120-tc.html

    I've always used lead roof flashing for muzzle loader bullets. Talk to any roofers in your area. I pay 50 cents per pound.
