    I came across 4 new file handles at a garage sale for very little money. But, I also make my own handles from scrap hardwood/ dowels. I like to turn down the front end so that a short piece of EMT or copper pipe is a force fit on it. This helps...

    Lefty here too. Early on, I owned and shot right hand cap and flint rifles. As stated before, eye (and ear) protection is a must. Also, watch your hand/arm position. The pan flash can give you a nice black powder "tattoo" on your right fore arm if...

    I have a small jar of used clothes dryer sheets, use them to wipe down the powder measures. There are smokeless powders that will cling to the hopper tube also, Trail Boss being one of them. I sometimes use that in my cartridge conversion C&B...

    Ric, nice work as usual. Here in Wis. we are having some "alert" days this weekend. 6-12" snow mid-State, not quite as much for us. Coldest-ever start of April!

    mazo kid replied to a thread 1866 Uberti in Leverguns
    I did check the chamber and found a slight patch of surface rust. Luckily no pitting! I spent a few minutes polishing it up with 0000 steel wrapped around a bore brush. I had checked the bore when I got the Carbine and it was clean and bright, so...

    mazo kid replied to a thread 1866 Uberti in Leverguns
    Thanks for the comments and suggestions. Yes, the gun was used, and the ammo was "proved" in my Lyman multi-cartridge testing block. From reading I have done, it seems like the chambers were a little "loose" in those guns, so I was puzzled with the...

    mazo kid started a thread 1866 Uberti in Leverguns
    I have wanted a lever gun in 38 or 38/357 for a long time. I got the Uberti Yellow Boy for a good price at an auction. When I went to function test it, the ammo chambered very hard! Ejected just fine. This was my reloaded ammo with commercial cast...

    Thanks for those responses. After thinking about it, I realize I shouldn't have mentioned the Beaumont; I know better as I have several rounds loaded. The Mauser is different though in that IIRC , it uses a .445 boolit. The mold I referenced is a...

    I have a chance to get a Lyman 445599 mold and was wondering what you may think about using those boolits in a Dutch Beaumont and/or an 84 Mauser?

    +1 on drilling through holes, that would give very consistent length.
