    Nobade replied to a thread 40-65 in Smokeless Paper Patching
    I generally get the best results with the slowest powder I can manage. I shoot a lot of WC860, and it should work in this case also. You would have to duplex it to get it to work right. For non duplex loads something in the range of Winchester 760...

    Nobade replied to a thread 40-65 in Smokeless Paper Patching
    The usual deal is boolit .001" or so over bore diameter, patch to be a snug fit in the throat, light or zero neck tension, case full of slow powder to set the overall length, jam into the lands as much as your rifle design allows. Fairly soft lead,...

    Thanks Lyn, I hadn't been on here for a while and missed that.

    Hey McFred, you and I have some similar loading techniques. And have reached similar conclusions - a bunch of slow powder can make boolits work where less of faster powder will cause leading. Been using that same boolit in my 9mm over AA#5 with...

    I want to buy one of those old Ideal 20 ga reloading tools to make up roll crimped black powder ammo for my old shotgun. Anybody have one to sell or trade for?

    Measure the ID of your hulls to see how they compare to your wads.

    Nobade replied to a thread 1873, 1892, 1894 in Leverguns
    I replied to the second post mistakenly. Oops... on the cases, my Marlin 45 colt only gets sized to where the base of the bullet is, and well annealed. The loaded rounds look like fat 44wcf cases but they seal the chamber, feed well, and are...

    And as you know, load them with soft lead and black powder the groove diameter doesn't matter much within reason.

    Nobade replied to a thread Cricket .22 kids rifle in Rimfire Area
    I have the pistol version. I needed a second .22 barrel for the Contenders so both kids could shoot at the same time. Then I found out I could buy a Crickett pistol for $100 less than a TC barrel. It's plenty accurate, I can hit a golf ball at 50...

    Nobade replied to a thread E85 gas in Our Town
    That's pretty much the only legitimate use I've found for E85 - the anti knock is through the roof and you can make incredible power if you build an engine to take advantage of it. I recently encountered a Nissan 370Z that was putting out over...

    Nobade replied to a thread The old gunsmith in Our Town
    Fortunately our shop has figured out how to survive. By concentrating on one thing - high accuracy bolt action rifles. No general gunsmithing, no repairs, no wood finishing, etc. I can't say it makes me happy, I'd surely love to be doing all of...

    Nobade replied to a thread Hunting with cast? in Cast Boolits
    Cast hard, anneal the nose, drive them to 1800fps or more if you can, and most importantly put it in the right spot and it will get the job done.

    Nobade started a thread It's a start in Muzzleloading.
    In the spirit of the thread about converting a Lyman rifle to use a Chambers lock, I started something similar. After hearing about Kibler's new locks, I ordered one of the Siler looking ones. Supposed to be a month out, we'll see. I'm hoping I...

Lord, make me fast and accurate. Let my aim be true and my hand faster than those who would seek to destroy me. Grant me victory over my foes and those that wish to harm to me and mine. Let not my last thought be “If only I had my gun”; and Lord if today is truly the day that You call me home, let me die in a pile of brass.



I am out of town, enjoy your holidays.
