    I’m a big believer in using 45 caliber handgun bullets for 45 caliber muzzleloader‘s. I have a CVA round ball twist Kentucky rifle that I hunted with a 255 grain lee RF for a few years. According to standard wisdom, That bullet is not supposed to...

    Additionally, the 357 had a headspace issue that I didn’t catch when I did the epoxying, so that probably exasperated the cratering issue. I corrected both issues with the bushing. The final product isn’t as pretty as I’d like it to be, but it...

    Sorry for not getting back sooner, fire. I don’t think I ran any specials through it before I did my bushing, but I doubt you would have a lot of trouble with cratering from them. If I recall correctly, the 44 specials don’t crater on the other...

    That 410 based cat sneeze rifle sounds very much like a project I would like to do! I have a couple of old model H&R 410 barrels that would fit my handy rifle, and they would be ideal for that kind of a sleeve.

    If I recall correctly, when these were being made they seemed to be a cheaper and more adaptable version of the lone Eagle. Same cannon breach design, with the availability of swapping barrels, plus the company would chamber a barrel in almost any...

    I did two of them like Jedman did. One of them is in 357 and the other is in 44 Magnum, both of them shoot way better than they have any right to. The problem that I did Encounter was the firing pin diameter was too big on both of them. The 357 was...
