    The hang fires makes it sound like air space. Might be some crud preventing the casting to go all the way down. For my .54s I use a patch crumpled up and placed under the casting. I also use 60gns rather than 80gns.

    My experience also. I have tried the shoot-clean-shoot-clean regimen and can see no worthy results. Keep shooting a new barrel, and they seem to get better as the rounds add up. It will all take care of its self.

    Before I get one, has anyone used the Lyman Tang sight? I have an 1895 Marlin, and I have large hands. I could use the Skinner peep sight, but I have always liked the Lyman sight? Does it interfere with normal use?
