    If I need a larger bullet, I dissolve vi-ag-ra in some water, and soak the bullets. They only stay bigger for four hours, so you do need to shoot them fairly quickly.

    I have been running 10mm pistols for over 30 years. A little history lesson might be in order here. In the mid-1970s there was a significant amount of R&D under way to "improve" the performance of autopistols beyond the capabilities of the 45...

    Old Henry-- I have used your load listed in my 40 S&W pistols for 20+ years. It runs in EVERYTHING, and shoots well. I avoid Taurus products like the plague. There are far too many fine and affordable 40 S&W pistols available in this...

    It is possible to make "powder puff" .45 ACP loads that function reliable down to the 155 grain level. You'll have to experiment around a little and be careful. The key to this performance is to use a wad under the bullet. This decreases case...

    My shooting partner passed and liquidated his stuff. Another buddy did the guns. Cans and boxes of loaded ammo. No loads listed and he wasn't the most careful reloader so I pulled it and remelted the bullets and reprocessed the cases (mostly 9mm)....

    Probably 60s. The earlier Hodgdon's were all orange as well as I recall. Started buying them about 1961 and they were all one color with the printing changed between types. 4831 a dollar a can. The guy had a 40 pound keg in back and he sold it...

    Never saw any of those in my travels but the procedure with the brass tube is doable. Had a friend that made .41 Colt cases in a like manner way back when and they worked out all right and enabled him to get a SA Colt going. Not like that's a real...

    Missoula is only 30 miles from Montana. Since you will be so close, you should visit the state! Missoula is Berkley North. Quite a bit to see in the area. Phillipsburg is a nice side trip, and the nearby Granite ghost town. Garnet ghost town isn't...

    They don't know the rules until they have been there. We don't allow any .22 bores in our military matches, and the newest gun you see on the line is a Garand. We also restrict sporterized rifles. Those are a separate class that we shoot at two week...

    waksupi replied to a thread burnt patches? in Muzzleloading.
    I've used it in revolvers over the powder, rather than greasing the chambers. I was able to shoot more cylinders before the gun would tie up with fouling. I see no use for it in a long gun.

    waksupi replied to a thread Barrel length in Muzzleloading.
    As with any other gun, a longer barrel will give a longer sighting plane. My main smoothbore is a 42", and one of my most accurate rifles is 44". I have shot very short barrel guns that were plenty accurate, if you could get a good sight of the...

Signature


The solid soft lead bullet is undoubtably the best and most satisfactory expanding bullet that has ever been designed. It invariably mushrooms perfectly, and never breaks up. With the metal base that is essential for velocities of 2000 f.s. and upwards to protect the naked base, these metal-based soft lead bullets are splendid.
John Taylor - "African Rifles and Cartridges"

Forget everything you know about loading jacketed bullets. This is a whole new ball game!
