    The only way I know of is to pick it up from the distributor. Saves the postage as well. Perhaps you can go in with some friends and order a case so you can spread out the fees, if you are located far from a source? -Nobade

    That is a dandy. Except for the flintlock and natural white , your rifle bears more then a passing resemblance to my J. Browning mountain rifle. I also have the single set trigger which I am warming up to. My rifle is currently 50 cal and I...

    Yes, if you heat it you can get the brake off. They are not threaded. Terrible design, makes it louder but doesn't do much of anything for recoil reduction. If you are going to shoot it with cast bullets you'd be well advised to get rid of the brake...

    Nice! That ought to do the trick. You could even drop the lube grooves and make it a slick, it would work fine in muzzle loaders. -Nobade

    A lot of it depends on how you personally hold the gun. It's hard to predict, just start going lighter until you find out the answer. -Nobade

    However big a bullet will slip into a fired case is what you want to use. Mine shoots great with .433"bullets, terrible with anything less. If I want to use some of my normal size moulds I just paper patch the bullets they throw. Size to .427" and...

    Big fan of Moose Molds here. They cater to the skirmisher crowd and have several designs for the Sharps. I use their France mold myself, very accurate. Of course you'll want to do a chamber cast to determine the throat diameter so you know what to...

    You can buy the basic Uberti Low Wall rifle in 32-20 for somewhat less than $1K from Buffalo Arms. Nice little rifles and well proportioned, not too heavy. The fancier ones are more money but you get cool features like a pistol grip and double set...

    Can and should are two different things. I'd just tone it down a bit to 223 velocity or a bit better and you'll get great bore life and have a lot more fun shooting it. -Nobade

    If those old 357 mag Marlins weren't so bloody expensive now I would have bought one to rebarrel to 30 Badger already. But at current prices it isn't going to happen! Maybe a Rossi '92 but even those are coming pretty dear these days. -Nobade

    338-06 works great, I shoot one myself with PP bullets. Just not the AI version, lots of drawbacks and no benefits. 38-55 does work quite well, just make sure you have a properly spec'ed chamber for what you want to do. A poll sounds like fun, no...
