    You wouldn't be alone! Although some of the targets are so small, a trade gun is really put to task. Olives at 25 yards, anyone? Plus shooting through the loops on a pretzel without breaking them!

    The twist is fine. Just treat it like a sore pecker, and don't screw with it.

    waksupi replied to a thread Cheap India guns in Muzzleloading.
    I would recommend putting a ramrod down the bore, and comparing on the outside to see how much breech plug you have. The breech plug should have as much length as the bore diameter.

    ...............If you're using a "Big Bore" like 375" or more (like .458") 45-70 etc, a FN design cast 1-10 or pure lead paper patched will do all you want to considerable ranges. You just have to do your homework (ie: ranges) to be an ethical...

    Search "Beagleing". I think that is spelled right. Tells you how to make your mold cast larger.
