    You need to fit your bullet to the throat. Try asking on the wanted section, you can probably find some samples to try.

    Reread what Waksupi says about analine dies and create your own color. The dies do penetrate better than just about anything.

    I got a Pietta 1860 from Cabelas a while ago and just tried to take it apart to clean off the shipping grease. The wedge will not budge. I didn't think they were supposed to be this tight and I don't want to scratch the finish. Any bright...

    It sounds like you are going to need three different molds, or try to size down the largest diameter to work for all. A heavy for caliber Loverin will work well nearly every time. I like to take a fired case, and find a size of bullet that slips...

    waksupi replied to a thread F vs FF in Muzzleloading.
    You can use them, and they will be accurate with round ball, and there is no reason loads couldn't be worked up for shot that are effective. You would be working with lower velocities, and the coarser granulation you use, the more fouling. I use...

    Something to keep in mind. If you already have an accurate load, you will need to add 300 fps to appreciably flatten a trajectory. And then not by much. Then you are back to searching for an accurate load again. Better off staying with your most...

    Yes you are reading to much into it. Winchester 1890 & 1906 pump guns are fine rifles but they were never intended to be competition target rifles. Match chambers and match ammunition have there place and they do have advantages for specific...

    I am not aware of any major weapons system adoption that did not have some teething issues. I sure it was the same with the 1911. GAO report here https://www.gao.gov/assets/220/210461.pdf pages 10,14, 15 and 16 are interesting. "The first...

    The 92 slide failure was a very real issue with standard M882 ball when it was first issued. After the issue first came up we had to track round count and replace slides a 3K. Old slides were returned. Not sure if they did anything else but...

    I own and work on a lot of different pistols. I have been a 1911 fanboy for a very long time and that has not changed. About a year ago I picked up a CZ 75 Tactical Sport Orange. That is an incredible pistol. I liked it so much I picked up a CZ...

    I'd guess you are OK, but I'd load up a few and shoot them and then check the barrel. Only your gun can truly answer that question.

    M-Tecs replied to a thread BP recoil in Muzzleloading.
    My guess would be the weight of rifles is different. Stock design will be different also and stock and butt plate shape will greatly effect perceived recoil. The RB in pure lead should be around 460 grains with pure. I have never owned a 69 cal...

    I've done blond maple stocks, and in my opinion they come out a bit too light. They will darken a bit with age, but it does take along time. My fiddle that I left blond is around 20 years old, and it has gained a mellow yellow color over the years....

    The confusion came with the introduction of Pyrodex and then the copycats. They are all less dense than real black. Thus if one were to measure them by weight one would have a significant overload if one used the Black Powder charge weights. ...

    If you go ahead with this fire form your brass with a couple layers of Scotch tape around the base, enough to just fit into the chamber. This centers the case and the fireform exists ahead of it, centering the fireformed case. Not my idea, came...
