    I recall a so-called gunsmith who drilled through the barrel of a Sharps to mount sights. First shot, the sight took a trip.

    That's the right way to do it. Also notice the notch on the front of the cock. If you guns don't have that, get out a file or Dremel and do it. It directs fragments away from the eyes, and helps split the fired cap for easier removal.

    I'll have you know that I paid $200 @ $1 per lb for that "140 lb" pig. Lol But the 35 rem did do the trick. When you find out where Prodigal Son found that pig I am going to come visit your new home.

    Use any 190 gr load staring at the low end and work up. My lyman 49 edition shows many heavier loads for 30-06. You may find looking at that data useful. Magnum cases are harder to squeeze cast accuracy out of than say a 30-40 or 308 but it can be...

    Tripplebeards, I feel your pain. All these posters telling you that your bullet has a meplat as wide as a drum lid, or that your boolit is already the same diameter as an expanded 6.5 creedmore, or that you should worry more about your accuracy...

    ..............Picked up the Winchester M67A at a local indoor range for $225. It's in at least VG condition with a mirror bore. According to details, it was built in 1936. It has 2 common hiccups. It was D&T'd for a sidesaddle scope mount at some...

    I didn't find much, if any difference in the roughened balls. Both the smoothbores I have at the time shoot like rifles, so what would I do with a bit more group tightener? If I am on target, they are going to hit.

    I don't think it was made for trade, as the gun has much nicer engraving than the Chief's grade guns.

    9.3x62Al and I had a great time (as usual). Heck, instead of just having a good time I actually made a bit of an effort and managed to win the 100 yard group competition :-) If I'd do more shooting and less time blabbing and looking at everyone...

    Steel wool will not cause a problem, as long as you let the previous layer of finish dry completely before rub out.

    I've started claims before, and have found out they were delivered by the post office, rather than Fedex. Since I don't go down the mountain often to check the mail, I didn't know it had been sitting in my mailbox. Just another time in my life I...

    I'd won a pair of new cast iron skillets last year. Both were rough on the inside. I took one to the shop to smooth it out, left the other one rough. I used them equally, and the rough one seasoned much better and faster than the smooth one.
