    I had a mistake and it cost me a nice set of 1911 grips, a perfectly good magazine, and a barrel bushing. Double charge in my Kimber 1911 after I first got my Dillon 550 some 25 years ago. Hell yes I learned from it, and it has never happened again....

    Hi Ron, there is no doubt that sidelocks can be made to shoot accurately with paper patched bullets. You have proved it, I've watched your videos. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't you using pyrodex p, or did you switch to BH209? The Op...

    NSB, your experiences with sidelocks and inlines mirror mine. I have both and enjoy shooting and hunting with both. But just for grins I wish that rodwha would just load his sidelock up with some BH209 and a magspark. I'd like to see the bore of his...

    I looked up their profiles and it shows "Perma-Banned". I missed what happened, but whatever it was must have been pretty serious to get the "Perma" status?

    Unless you shoot ten 3 shot groups with each, comparing group size ES, SD and average of one to the other one group attempting a guess at which is best is meaningless. Groups of just 3 shots are meaningless in your example, specially with that...

    I have a Leupold VX2 3x9 on my Impact, with Leupold mount. I'm very impressed with the accuracy of my Impact, all shots touching at 100 yds from a sandbag rest. I use the Hornady .452 250 grain SST saboted bullets over 95 grains of BH209 with a CCI...

    The "Muzzleloader" 209 primers aren't recommended for BH209, not enough spark. I use CCI209 Magnums in my inline with 95 grains of BH209 and a Hornady 250 grain saboted bullet. I have no experience with musket caps, so I can't comment on that. I...

    I would say go for it then. Are you planning on using sabots? BH209 needs a really tight seal to work efficiently. If you do decide to do it, please let us know how it works for you. Nothing to lose I suppose, except maybe a little money. Sent...

    I won a 500 RD box of those Berry's bullets at a shooting match in Colorado. I quickly learned that I would never, ever buy any of them. My opinion of them is that they are junk.

    BH209 is the shizzle in Inlines, but I recommend to not waste your time or money trying to use it in a sidelock or ROA. I also recommend that you go to their website and read up on it if you are so inclined. It's really good stuff, but for for...

    I don't have a 45-70, but I do have the Lyman #4 Cast Bullet Handbook. Unfortunately, there are no loads shown using 2400 powder. It appears as if 5744 is a solid performer in the 45-70, might try to find some of that.
