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

    waksupi replied to a thread large throat in krags in Cast Boolits
    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 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...

    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....

    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.

    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...

    Feed it and have the sheriff come pick it up. Most truly rural areas don't have animal control so the Sheriffs or police provide this service.
