    I don't know as I would hold Goex up as an example for anything. Serious competitors are using Swiss or Old Eynsford, at least in Long Range ML. Any variation will show up at 500+ yds. I would stack any of my home made up against Goex at 100yd or...

    A 32-20 is pretty much a small game gun. A 100 to 150yd shot on a squirrel is sure not possible with my old eyes.:shock: Bob

    This was a Swede with Treebone stock and a take off barrel. Less than $700 when finished. Never shot it past 125yd but then it was built as a hunting rifle. Bob

    With the back pressure from shooting heavy weight boolits I would think that you would burn a flintlock touch hole out pretty quick. It takes about 20 rounds to burn out a standard steel nipple in one of the long range Gibbs rifles. Even the...

    Shiloh Sharps, either 45-100 or 45-110. The brass was produced by A-Square when they were in business here in KY. Bob

    Early on I did a comparison of several different powders and the velocity was surprisingly equivalent when the powder was weighed and loaded. Of course the volume was significantly different from commercial to corned and then screened. IIRC it took...

    Try a damp patch and then dry after each shot and that will probably turn into 1- ragged hole. Bob

    I'm planning on being there. You should compete, seriously, it is a laid back match and everybody is extremely helpful. If you are using the stock sights I can give you numbers to get you in the ball park. The first distance is 200 yd which is...

    I've never seen anyone use a RB in these sort of matches. I think beyond 200 yds they would be extremely in-effective. 535gr+ conicals and 90 to 100+gr of powder is pretty much the standard for those distances. Bob

    To a certain point that is true, especially if you clean before loading. Most LR shooters use a long tube though, which includes most of the top notch competitors. The tube has the advantage of getting the powder where it is supposed to be without...

    If you have any interest in LR MLders this is a great match for beginners. The distances are 200yd, 300yd, 600yd, and 1000yd. The rules are very lenient as are the time limits. This is a great match to get your feet wet. This year it is on Thur, and...

    I had the aluminum tube from another project and figured it would be as good as the brass or maybe better because it is softer and of course not near as heavy. Ted, the lube wad isn't really necessary since you are cleaning after every shot anyway....

    Yes, mine is 1/4" ID aluminum tube. I just use an MTM funnel that I fitted to it. Some LR shooters just use a short one to drop the charge. Lee Shaver believes that dirt build up on the tube can cause muzzle wear ruining accuracy. I use a long one...

    The Lyman trimmer I have is the cheap model, Accutrimmer so I think I would rather get one of the more robust models. This one seems to have a lot of flex and the spindle is showing wear. I'm not even sure how long ago I got it, but I didn't trim a...

    Rusty, sorry I missed your question but it was a re-barrel. I had a Douglas 40-65 barrel from a C-Sharps that I upgraded to a Badger barrel in 16 twist and put that barrel on the Roller. This was one of the rifles that Don mentioned. I gave $225 for...

    This round has been a REAL education to say the least and it isn't finished yet. I got the rifle 1-1/2 weeks before deer season and really wanted to use it. I worked up a load for a 325gr mold that I already had and zeroed the sights just in time to...

    I have one of the early CVA colonial pistols as well as the Philadelphia Derringer. Never shot the Derringer but put quite a few rounds through the Colonial pistol. IIRC the kits were less than $20 back then (1974 or so). I had a buddy that pulled...

    I just got a Shaver PH front sight with internal level, $100. Definitely not as cheap as the 17A but way cheaper than some and I like that larger diameter front. Bob
