    I have used both NAPA cutting oil and Ballistol. I think they are very similar and have noticed no performance differences. The NAPA stuff is a fair bit cheaper if you buy a gallon jug. I think that the price is the main reason people use the...

    I think you'll be super happy with it. The .32-40 is the perfect choice for offhand in a traditional rifle. What weight barrel did you choose? I have heard a few people say they prefer a #3 profile for offhand, but I really like my 28" half...

    Gunlaker replied to a thread Fuzzy Ballistics in Single Shot Guns
    Modern bullets are a different sort of thing. The nose designs don't work as well as a typical black powder long range bullet once velocity drops, also the boat tails that many of them have reduce the base drag so they become unstable more easily. ...

    I'd check with what other people think, but I find that for shooting from the bench the single prong Schoyen buttplate is better than the standard double prong. But then for offhand I like the standard one. I might one day order a loop style...

    Wow, exhibition grade and engraved! That'll be a looker. Is it a #52 schuetzen jr.? What other options? I have two of them, but not engraved. The first is a #52 Shuetzen Jr. with upgraded wood and #4 half octagon Badger barrels in .32-40 and...

    I think it might have been renamed. There was a fellow on the Shiloh forum that was complaining about name inconsistency in their mold part numbers. I wonder if he got them to renumber it? See this if you are interested: ...

    I do not know anything about the chamber design of the CPA rifles, but in a Shiloh the Saeco #740 is one of the best bullets out there. The Buffalo Arms 400gr Money bullet ( 409400M4 ) is also quite excellent. Chris.

    Ted, I'm sure that if the bore condition is good that it can be made to shoot extremely well. I generally don't shoot from a bench rest, preferring prone shooting, but if you check out this ASSRA link you'll see a target shot by my .38-55 CPA...

    Ted, I don't have a Ballard, but I can say that should you find that bullets of the desired diameter won't fit into the case then I'd advise looking into breech seating your bullets. Many people these days can't be bothered to shoot that way, but...

    Joe I got into it after the duplex loading phase of BP competition shooting was more or less over. I've heard that with lower quality powder like plain Goex, you can get better velocity stats, and more velocity by going to duplex loads. I have shot...

    Chill, I didn't shoot black powder long range up here ( I'm Canadian ) when everyone was shooting hot rod duplex loads, but most of the old guns I know of were rebarreled Ruger #1's which can survive higher pressures than your average antique. I...
