    well I suggest that you go to the muzzle loader sub forum and ask for a show of hands for people who know how to work with this particular model of side lock and see who you can send it to with a little beer money to cover surgical costs.

    Placement is key, no results can be garunteed by anything smaller them 20mm or 50 bmg. This is the time of year the fat layer is the thickest on deer, its very common for them to be self sealing blood tanks when hit. Even a 243 with 100 grain...

    Some of the best accidents in terms of firearms come from people who have been using one a long time. Reloading is a good example of it. Not hard to find posts on forums how someone whos been reloading for 20 years or more had to spend a weekend...

    I believe 12-7-1941 will not be forgotten by any American, but I believe that it is not considered worthwhile to teach about in the modern socialist school systems here in America. The machinations that caused world war one and two are being...

    governmental attitude with hunting as just a money making Ponzi scheme, Ponzi scheme hunting regulations and fine systems, glamourizing of professional "hunters" on tv and in magazines kills the ability to get joy out of it.

    "basically the same" is somewhat similar to the reloadings world of one "red neck" telling another "yall come watch this now". I would say if it was made for black powder, keep it at black powder. May be smellier but in the long run it could be a...

    technically yes the standard Minnie doesn't get patched per say as the british did. However standard American practice was to leave the bullet in the paper tube when loading, thus impolitely creating a defacto paper patched Minnie ball. IN the...

    if I recall, the official reason savage stopped production was low sales, and that the breech plugs had a rather short life span. In the past I saw 20-30 shots per breech plug before the threads were to shot for safety reasons. Also the fact...
