    Roy this is a very interesting thread you have created. I can't do anything like this but I like to read about those who can. A tip of my hat to you and I am impressed with your "smithing" abilities. I have read some of your other stuff so I know you have other "smithing" abilities. Good write-up an wonderful photos of the process.

    the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy,
    its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery."

    Yup...It Shoots!

    50 yds / 430g LEE / 70g Shockey FFG / CCI LR Mag Primers

    Bench rested:


    Off Hand:


    I drifted the sight over and the next few shots were spot on windage.

    Interestingly, I made a front sight out of a brass door lock key. Made it tall and took a file to the range. With a 6-O'clock hold, at 50yds, it was near perfect elevation!

    Tomorrow I'll load some more ammo and take it out to 100yds and 200yds

    Well done sir!!
