    Some years ago I was playing around at the range, trying to hit the 500M ram silhouettes with my 1863 musket loaded with balls. Crosswind was in the 20 mph range, really stout. Ended up having to hold something like 100 feet for windage to get...

    Sounds like some have not seen the value of a good towel. Crisco all the way always have a nice lube star on the muzzle as well. Only as messy as you make it.

    Yes. I have three Cherokees and one of them has a single trigger with the large bow like the new Englander. And it has a very nice trigger pull after a bit of work. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk

    i know from my point of view it as such; looking down the barrel sights as if to shoot ... the right is to my right, left is to my left ... top is the sights and top flat of the barrel and the under side or bottom is where the ramrod fits in...

    While not the most sexy nor attractive ... I much prefer the packmeyer presentation grips. They fit my hand perfectly and are not all that ugly to me.

    John, getting a custom barrel from you would be superb. Judging by the liner you did on my 93 Marlin I would be happy with a barrel done by you. PM sent

    The trick to the 400 Whelen is to use the Ackley body taper instead of the normal '06 taper. The case ends up .458" at the shoulder, and gives you plenty to headspace on. Kind of like a big 35 Remington or 300 blackout. Making cylindrical 30-06...

    Vellum is too strong. Since you are in the smokeless patching room I assume you are using smokeless powder? If so, that 15# green bar tractor feed paper works great. If you can't find any, even though it is too thick you can get away with the common...

    You had also better not use a case full of 5744. If you want a full case with no pressure problems try IMR3031. BTW, a case full of RE7 is dang near a 458 win mag load! Only for Ruger #1 or other really strong rifles. A full case of 3031 is safe in...

    that makes sense as the 45 Colt is a fairly straight walled case with hardly any taper. in the '73' this should not be a problem as the lifter raises the next cartridge up flat and shoves it in the chamber in this straight line afair ... now the...
