    Nope! Wano made in Germany Swiss made in the Aubonne factory in Switzerland Schutzen is the marketing / importer company joint ventured with Wano and brings them both into your country. Wano comes into Australia direct from the factory -...

    I'll back that - I started with an old lathe that only had a four jaw - hated it to start off but it MADE me learn setup - a good 3 jaw is way quick but makes you lazy.

    agree with the first part ---cleaner burning + consistent velocity --both beat extra velocity ---dont know how Swiss rates - have never shot it - unobtainable down under at the moment.

    1) could be because of cost - ie assume Wano is slower than Goex so if they the same price then Wano costs more to do the same job 2) usually more powder equalls more fouling - (not necessarily the case tho)

    That was me but I put a question mark after it ---I dont know at all -- it was merely a suggestion as to how (maybe) they might have got the extra energy ---- also in the testing quoted they were looking at a wano load of 90 grains and the 50%...

    Within your price limit that little lathe looks ok - the 38 mm spindle hole will get you out of a lot of trouble (or into it :smile:) I bought a small lathe several years ago with a bed long enough to work a barrel (just) but the through hole is...

    I can shoot a string of 50 blackpowder rounds without fouling out - dont think I have a lube problem - it all happened in the first three shots - once the barrel warmed (2 or 3 shots) then a good group comes .

    Lee's second edition maxes out the 405 gr load at about 1800 fps in the 95 Marlin I don't think I'd want to be at either end when the hammer falls. I shot a friends 350 gr at 1650 and that was enough for my geriatric shoulder. I don't know about...

    I think the main question over this would be - is it a difference in actual moisture content in the powder OR difference in the way a particular recipe reacts in the barrel ? There are so many subtle variations with blackpowder ---the recipe is so...
