    Smokinfeathers that is awesome. You are doing it up pretty good against those squirrels. Nice looking muzzleloader too. I am curious about your load (power charge and type), wadding such as cushion or plastic. I am living thinking about my past...

    Although I would probably bore him to death, I think Bill Ruger would be an interesting fella to talk with.

    Tony I have read most of the posts up to the end. Some I just skimmed over. I think you have received some good electrical advice from a lot of folks here. Fact is that without a schematic or a wiring diagram we are all just shooting in the dark....

    I think your full house 525 grain along with a case full of black powder is going to be hard on the shooter and the 14" TC single shot. I wouldn't do it. I think the approach you are thinking about of the carbine load and a 300 grain boolit may be...

    Sorry to hear about your accident and your heart procedure. You sound like your attitude and present condition is good. I'd say go for it and about the 30-30 as back up to your primary 7 mag, you should be good to go. If you are methodical and...

    smoked turkey replied to a thread Powder containers in Our Town
    blackthorn I seem to recall that the containers need to be opaque such that light cannot get to the powder since that can degrade it. I think that is why powder containers are usually in black. I save my old canisters when I empty one and re-purpose...

    Yes I also gave your hunt some thought today. Like you, I just knew that everything was lined up and today was to be the day. I think someone forgot to inform the deer. Oh well as you said tomorrow is another day to enjoy the great outdoors. I hope...

    Rich, It sounds like you are going to have a fantastic time with that .54 cal muzzleloader. Your hunting area does sound like a honey hole. I expect a positive report soon on your hunt. I agree with the water approach. I have a bow hunting buddy who...
