    Thank you SO much. That’s the way I was leaning but because of a lifetime of reloading (243, 308, 30-06, 300 mag, 338 mag) my personal experience has been to use the powder that fills the case almost full. That is where I get the best accuracy. A...

    OK don’t kill me here. I’m just about finished loading a batch of 45-70 rounds, 32grains 5744, C.O.L. 2.552. 405 grain FP I understand the use of greased felt wads with BP and the need to have uniform powder compression in that arena —- why...

    Hey Lead….I didn’t know about the arrow trick until I was about 24 or so and needed to feed the family, an old guy (about my age now…) told me that if I emptied the shot out of that 20 gauge shell and was real careful curling the arrow feathers into...

    Greg at that time I was 16-17 and didn’t know what a “breechplug” was. I did know there was a “line” on the rear of that percussion barrel and knew it was probably a a separate part but had zero idea how it was attached to the barrel….. Art
