    dale 2242, lucky you. Wished I had a stash of old surplus 4831. We used white cardboard Dairy Queen pint ice cream containers.

    In the late 60's the old surplus H4831 was the first powder I used. 70 cents a pound but I had to bring my own container. 6mm Rem, dip the case in the powder, shake some out half way down the neck, seat a 80 gr Speer hollow point that had a huge...

    I live in the country, I have a dish, which 'downloads' fairly slow. They all say to go slowly. By going slowly I have had good success with red dot, blue dot then unique. Not bad success with 700x, titegroup, hs7 and hp-38 in 45/70. Boolit size...

    gumbo333 replied to a thread subsonic 45-70 in Hunting with CB's
    For some subsonic data check out gmdr.com/ lever/ lowveldata. Read the story too, very interesting. I've had very good results with 405 gr cast with red dot, blue dot, unique, and more. Also 300 gr cast. Never tried the 500 heavys. I'll bet a lot of...

    Didn't you watch any old Daniel Boone movies? How they poured a little trail of black powder to blow up a keg of black powder, lit the trail and it fizzed its way to the keg. Kerblewie. Just lay out a little trail of powder, maybe a neat design,...

    Missionary was this a Peruvian pelican? Different? Had a good friend who for several years went to the Dakotas to hunt sand hill cranes that were legal there. They were pretty good. Snow geese are hard to make trasty, except maybe for the cats.

    Yes they do make multilayered rectangular air fryers, that also work as toaster ovens where the air doesn't blow. Dont think mine blows so hard it would desturb the powder but I have never PC'd.

    As to landlord liability, I think most states have laws that landlords are responsible to do their best to keep safe conditions on their land, even to trespassers. I know I'm insured for that. Same as keeping his livestock on his property on not out...

    gumbo333 replied to a thread Stuck Round Ball in Muzzleloading.
    If you try the drill press idea (its a good idea but a 2 man job - large channel locks work good to turn with) possibly heat the nipple with a wood burning tip. It won't get too hot to hurt the metal. This is the trick used to remove scope base...

    gumbo333 replied to a thread Stuck Round Ball in Muzzleloading.
    GreglaR did you get the old ball out? If you can't get the grease gun/ zerk to work ( likely the pressure will push the zerk out first) rather than brazing a screw to a long rod, braze on a drill bit. Drill progressively larger holes in the lead...

    Not Monarch but PPU 150 gr 308, blue box, fired in my grandsons Roger American(youth) is hot. Big boom, stiff recoil, big fireball out muzzle, something like max load of H335. Rem and Fed 150 gr factory is much more sedate. But I do like PPU brass...
