    Mine is quite nice. Don't know if it has been worked on before I got it, but I doubt it. The 45-70 one I had was good too, makes me think they used lighter springs in the target rifles. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk

    Should work better. If you can pick up range scrap with lots of jacketed bullet cores, that works well. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk

    Should work just fine. Though looking at the load data, if you load the 458 win mag to the same pressure as the 458 socom you'll get almost identical performance and powder charges so the can shouldn't have any problem with it. Full 458 win loads...

    I had one of those for a while. All parts are soft, so if used much it wears quickly. Otherwise kind of neat little rifles, I found I could shoot it using 9X19 brass and seat the bullets way out to hold headspace against the rifling. Very light...

    Perhaps you are misunderstanding what some call the "forcing cone." In reality your bullet should fit the chamber throat in the cylinder. Some Rugers have a tight throat which doesn't allow a cast bullet of adequate diameter to slide into them. Some...

    Wow, I have never seen a case split because of corrosion. I wonder if they are shooting them a lot without annealing? That will do it. At any rate, I just put them back in the box, come home, decap, rinse, wet tumble with SS pins and Dawn, let 'em...

    You have the best possible situation! Just use heavy 45 Colt bullets that are already the right size to patch up to fit your rifle. As for tails, on 45s I don't use them. Just cut the patch short enough so it leaves a spot of lead in the middle of...

    That Lee bullet has such thick skirts it won't blow out. The hollow base is just there for balance. It is the bullet Pat Wolfe talks about in his Trapdoor book, pretty much a copy of the original government design. Those are great bullets for the...

    Sort of what I was thinking. There aren't many rifles out there tailor made for shooting paper patched bullets, this one is really good with them, I don't think I will change it. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk

    The reason is that a cerosafe casting is not precise enough. Cerosafe grows and shrinks a lot, and is only good for +-.002 inches. It's simply not accurate enough, nor predictable. A pound cast never changes (at least not enough to matter) and when...

    Not the Linebaugh, but I tried it in the 500 S&W. It worked rather well, plenty accurate but the cases are too thick and even with annealing they didn't seal the chamber all that great. -Nobade

    Of course. Homemade powder, around 2F, and paper patched slicks. Works in my .375, .45, and .50. all of them shoot lights out when loaded correctly. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk

    Nobade replied to a thread Packing Powder in Muzzleloading.
    An 1860 is supposed to shoot high. They're sighted to be on at 50 yards. (Or is it 100?) Either way they're all high at normal handgun ranges. Plus pyrodex really needs to be compressed tightly to burn right. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk

    Looking for a New Englander barrel I can use the breech plug and underrib off of to build a new custom. Don't care about bore condition or rust, just need the parts off it. Got one sitting around you don't know what to do with? -Nobade

    A suggestion to get you started. Pin gauge the bore, and get a push through sizer .001" larger. Then go to these guys: http://missouribullet.com/index.php and see that they have soft, unlubed, unsized 38-55 bullets. Then check the ID of a fired...
