    BT Sniper replied to a thread 22 cal VLD heavies! in Swaging

    What does any of this have to do with Paper Patching? This should be moved to the "Muzzle loading" section.

    Since it started life as a 32-40 and was rebored I am assuming is an original?? If so dates of manufacture become somewhat important. Winchester started using stronger steels in the barrels around 1894 for the 94's and the 95's. Not sure when...

    megasupermagnum is spot on. Case volume will determine pressure. Some slow powders do odd things with too low of pressure. Powders like Unique work very well with the same charge in the 45 Colt and the 45/70 so loads like these would be fine for...

    No, not in the casting business but between work, Air National Guard, competitive shooting schedule and family when I would cast it would be for 2 or 3 days for 12 to 16 hours a day.

    At some higher end steak houses you get dry aged beef that has been aged 240 days. Is it tender, yes, but I don't care for the flavor. For beef 21 days to 90 days is were I like the flavor. Passed 120 days not so much. Aging any meat does effect...
