    Yes you are reading to much into it. Winchester 1890 & 1906 pump guns are fine rifles but they were never intended to be competition target rifles. Match chambers and match ammunition have there place and they do have advantages for specific...

    I am not aware of any major weapons system adoption that did not have some teething issues. I sure it was the same with the 1911. GAO report here https://www.gao.gov/assets/220/210461.pdf pages 10,14, 15 and 16 are interesting. "The first...

    I own and work on a lot of different pistols. I have been a 1911 fanboy for a very long time and that has not changed. About a year ago I picked up a CZ 75 Tactical Sport Orange. That is an incredible pistol. I liked it so much I picked up a CZ...

    M-Tecs replied to a thread BP recoil in Muzzleloading.
    My guess would be the weight of rifles is different. Stock design will be different also and stock and butt plate shape will greatly effect perceived recoil. The RB in pure lead should be around 460 grains with pure. I have never owned a 69 cal...

    If I need a larger bullet, I dissolve vi-ag-ra in some water, and soak the bullets. They only stay bigger for four hours, so you do need to shoot them fairly quickly.

    I dislike crimping, especially SS loads, unless I find it improves accuracy. I've not personally used 5744 in the 45 2.1, but have read of many who have had very satisfactory results with it.

    I've used it in revolvers over the powder, rather than greasing the chambers. I was able to shoot more cylinders before the gun would tie up with fouling. I see no use for it in a long gun.
