    They have been using ECM since 1993 and to the best of my knowledge they are still using it. I have a bunch of post 93 S&W's. Never had a barrel issue. http://www.benchrest.com/showthread.php?76633-S-amp-W-using-ECM-to-rifle-their-barrels! ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    It must have been the super hot water that I used to clean the rifle the last time. Now shes shooting consistent and without having a major issue with crud in the breech area. 5 shots late this evening from 50 yards. No, its not what I would...

    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...

    I own and work on a lot of different pistols. I have been a 1911 fanboy for a very long time and that has not changed. About a year ago I picked up a CZ 75 Tactical Sport Orange. That is an incredible pistol. I liked it so much I picked up a CZ...

    M-Tecs replied to a thread BP recoil in Muzzleloading.
    My guess would be the weight of rifles is different. Stock design will be different also and stock and butt plate shape will greatly effect perceived recoil. The RB in pure lead should be around 460 grains with pure. I have never owned a 69 cal...

    cream of wheat acts likes a felt wad, protects the patch, helps seal up excessive gasses, protects the base of conical bullets, etc. Its cheaper than wads but much slower to reload with imo. Doesnt matter if its smoothbore or rifled, you may benefit...

    That is correct. OE shot much cleaner and didnt leave behind the sticky fouling at the breech. Even goex shoots cleaner in my rifles. I may try a musket cap with swiss and see if that helps tame the crud at the breech. The seller said he has the...

    Feed it and have the sheriff come pick it up. Most truly rural areas don't have animal control so the Sheriffs or police provide this service.
