    mooman76 replied to a thread What type of lube in Muzzleloading.
    The patch depends on the gun they are all different. Since you already have two choices, try them both and see what works best. As far as lubes there are many many out there and everyone has their own choice. I still use good ol spit. I can shoot...

    450 seems high to me for a used flinter. Make sure it sparks good. The lock is the heart of a flint rifle. The other parts can be mediocre but if the lock doesn't spark good, the gun is useless.

    That's the right way to do it. Also notice the notch on the front of the cock. If you guns don't have that, get out a file or Dremel and do it. It directs fragments away from the eyes, and helps split the fired cap for easier removal.

    Yep, they do that. People around here open the hoods of the vehicle when camped in the back country. The pack rats prefer enclosed spaces

    Are you saying the hammer when resting is not all the way down on the nipple or are you saying it is hitting too high or low and is not going over the nipple completely? If it's the first one it may still strike good enough through inertia. Maybe a...

    In case you didn't know, one inherent problem with the CVA mountain rifles was that the trigger group was inlet too deep. This sometimes prevent it from going to half cock or making it easier to go off accidentally by bumping the butt too hard. An...

    mooman76 replied to a thread Range box in Muzzleloading.
    I have the big wheeled tool box for my center fire stuff. Top detaches so I don't always have to take the whole thing. For my BP supplies I have a tackle box and as I got more and more calibers, it was getting too crowded and too heavy with all that...

    I didn't find much, if any difference in the roughened balls. Both the smoothbores I have at the time shoot like rifles, so what would I do with a bit more group tightener? If I am on target, they are going to hit.

    I don't think it was made for trade, as the gun has much nicer engraving than the Chief's grade guns.

    Steel wool will not cause a problem, as long as you let the previous layer of finish dry completely before rub out.

    People are getting the brushes stuck all the time. It's best to use a well made brush when you do and turn it clock wise before you pull it out so the bristles aren't doing a 180. I also like to use a well used brush when I di but I don't all the...

    Try adding a little tin. If you have a small WW that should be fine. Pure lead actually melts at a higher temp and needs to be hotter and tin helps with fill out. a very small amount of tin won't effect hardness noticeably. I usually start out real...

    I've never had a problem with bullet fill out on this mould. Just because you think you are running hot, does not necessarily mean you are running hot enough. Are you running pure lead? If so a touch of tin might help. Crank the heat up all the way....

    Yes this. I've done it a couple times and if you can get it moving, it is almost always going to eject. Not always with allot of power but you might be surprised. It only takes a couple grains. If it doesn't go all the way, just push it back in...

    Put a good coat of oil or wax on your gun before taking it out if it looks like rain. Wipe it down good at the end of day and reoil if needed.
