    There is a sticky in this section on shooting smoothbores that will answer your questions, I believe. With no rear sight, i generally match or surpass my rifle scores at matches, shooting at the same targets. In most of the shoots in this area, no...

    Very nice. What method did you use? I hear the beetles they use for this purpose work real well. I did one a few years ago on a big one I found. We boiled what was left off using Borax and a big steel buck and campfire. Worked well, but took a...

    like mold maker use the graphite mold release agent. I just skim the pot as the strings build up then at the end I return it all back and flux the mess back into good alloy for the next time.

    any radioactivity they have seen will be shed in less than a month. they use lead because it is a shield/barrier not because it soaks up the x-rays or isotopes.

    they would do sometimes 6 different weights with the same mold number. it was generally the same cherry just cut deeper or shallower to give more/less drive bands.

    he is considering a lighter one from NOE. IMO a 350 is about as light as I would go in the 45-70. it could cut recoil but still retain enough weight for penetration. if things were gonna get tough and you needed to punch through a big Moose from...

    Better method I came across I've used for the last few guns I've blued. Get a section of 4" pvc, long enough to put the metal in. Get a plumbing flange to fit the pvc. This will be your most expensive part, around $25. Find a pot that this will set...

    He just bought this truck, and is in the process of fixing it up. A store-bought flush would be fine. The question is aimed at getting the best results, rather than the least cost.

    I bought new .25-35 brass to make .22 Savage High Power brass out of not long ago, so easy enough to get her up and running. I love Savage 99s and have several. You don't see .25-35 ones very often. Buy the rifle if you can afford it. You'll...

    the 50 is also the most known and available mold they made. so they don't command 'premium' or 'vintage' prices. so don't be spending 200$ for no 4 cavity mold, even if it's new in box, signed by both Hensley and Gibbs and their signatures are...
