    . I shoot/hunt with a .45 T/C Seneca that has a 1:48 twist - it shoots T/C Maxi-Hunter conical's accurately, and has put down over a dozen large New England whitetail's over the past years. Good 'nuf for me ! :happy dance: .

    Get a towel, Uncle Grinch, and dry off...….. ;) Shimming a rear scope mount base does nothing to the reticle, it will merely tilt that end of the scope "up" when it's raised, thereby lowering the POI and/or bending the scope main tube slightly...

    . FWIW: Some scopes have a difference in adjustment range between the windage & elevation adjustments. :roll: Often, successful zero can be reached by simply rotating the scope in the rings 90-degrees, making the former windage...

    You also probably won't like the tang safety on the new Winchester/Miroku Sporter, which makes mounting a tang peepsight a little difficult. kungfustyle gave you the best option, short of finding a original - which could give you a reloading...

    . The cupped end of the RR is the ball end when loading. Tight balls can be seated via starting the ball as above & finish seating it and then pushing the entire gun including the small end against a handy stop (tree, stone, wall, etc). .

    pietro replied to a thread Winchester Model 64 in Leverguns
    . The Winchester 64, based on the Model 94, was introduced about 1932, and was supposed to replace the CF Model 55 (there was also a single-shot auto-ejecting RF Model 55 in .22LR). Model 64 SN's were in the 2,200,00 range when the model was...

    You can most likely save yourself some aggravation, and figure out if ANY reborer (including Jess) will bore out your .308" barrel to .358". The barrel can only be bored out to .358" if the completed rebore leaves a barrel wall thickness of .125"...
