    Watching the Colonial gunsmith of williamsburg last night, the smith stated the breech plug should have at least 6 full threads which will end up being around 1/2" long.

    I don't agree with that at all. Far from typical. I can drive my .490" .020" patch with up to 90gr Pyrodex P and at 100 yards is still shoots tight groups. Im not sure what twist it had, but I had a .45cal deer creek northwest rifle ( new named cva...

    Tight groups with todays muzzleloaders all depends more on the shooters eye sight and just how good of a consistent shot he is. My 1:48 shoots just as good as my 1:66 twist .50cal. A .50cal with the 1:70 twist just means you will have the option of...

    Very true but you can't use the normally much cheaper to purchase used rifle action to do a pistol since it becomes a short barrel rifle in the eyes of the ATF. It was a reply to

    100% machining your own action is legal, however, using a rifle action to do a handgun is not unless you get a SBR stamp.

    M-Tecs replied to a thread 6.5 Creedmore - NOT in Factory Rifles
    Running the long bullets in the .260 for magazine feeding requires the bullet be seated in the donut area of the neck. This creates issues since most competitors don't want to inside neck ream. They much prefer to outside neck turn. The 6.5...

    Yes it will feed the very long bullets used by the long range competitors out of a 308 length mag. With the .260 using the same long bullets the mag runs out of space.

    In the early 1900's it was very common for competition shooting. It greatly reduces fouling. Most BP competitions do not allow it today. http://castboolits.gunloads.com/showthread.php?137201-Black-powder-duplex-loads

    they pretty much build these guns in side alleys. Watched one youtube video of the guys roughing out the stock, trigger guard and lock pieces. No way! I'd like a questionable civil war barrel found just yesterday in the dirt over one of these things.

    is the breech plug welded or threaded? If its threaded, there certainly doesnt look like enough. 1/4" or less.

    No disagreement. I love the.17 Mach 2. My favorite is a Magnum Research semi-auto with a Kidd two stage trigger, I also have the .17 Mach 2 in CZ's, Sako Quads and Contenders. That doesn't change the fact that the cartridge is almost dead. ...

    That is one of the primary reasons the cartridge is on life support. Dirty chambers in a shouldered rimfire in semi-auto don't mix so chamber dimension's between manufactures vary greatly. Between the case splits and slam fires ammo manufactures...

    That would be my point. Consumers rejected lower velocity of the 17 HM2. A low velocity 17 HMR load would fair no better.
