    That’s a new on me ? It looks a little like a Crescent action but yours has the bottom tang non removable and part of the action casting and the takedown arrangement is different. Also the front face of your action looks to have a rounded...

    Years ago I use to use a Hopkins Allen underhammer muzzloader with a short 20Ē barrel shooting a .440 round ball for deer hunting. I only shot 60 grs. Of black powder so the velocity probably wasnít really that fast and the ball weighed about 143...

    Congrats on the deer ! I notice the dog is cautiously sniffing the deer in your pic, that’s just how my last dog was he wasn’t quite sure why I was handling the deer. Jedman

    This is what I was going to say. If you have a simple way of depriming, priming and have a scoop powder measure or a scale the rest is pretty easy with plastic hulls. With your old single barrel you shouldn’t need to resize the brass or steel head...

    Jedman replied to a thread Mauser 98 in Military Rifles
    Sounds to me like it would be a lot of hand sanding. Take some quality 80 grit Emory cloth and tear or cut in to 3/4” wide strips and work it side to side over the crest carefully until it’s mostly removed. Then I would take a piece of sheet metal...

    When you ask if ď ALLĒ of the H&R frames are the same size the answer is NO. There are many early H&R frames/ receivers that are way different. I donít remember many of the numbered models well but I did own 3-4 of the M 48ís and they did not...

    Really there weren’t many pre 1885 22 rimfire rifles except a few that shot the short black powder rimfire cartridges. The Winchester M 1873 was chambered in 22 but not until 1884 I believe and I am sure there are probably plenty of 1873 prop guns. ...

    If I had any faster powder like bullseye, 700 x, red dot, I would start at about 5 grs. and work up if needed. I think 7 grs. of unique would be a bit high for a starting load unless your not putting a lot of the boolit in the case. The slower...

    Jedman replied to a thread Rolling Block Help in Single Shot Guns
    After just looking at my own no. 4 in 22 RF , I would say it probably is a 22 because my serial no. has 22 stamped after the serial number but in-line not at 90 degrees like your pic. But a rebore is not out of the possibilities. Jedman

    Jedman replied to a thread Rolling Block Help in Single Shot Guns
    Looks to be a Remington no. 4, if you can find a 1/4Ē drill bit and it goes in the chamber itís a 32 if if donít go itís a 22. Sorry after rereading your post I understand you donít have it in your possession to check. Jedman

    I have 2 handi rifles in .375 caliber, both were shotgun barrels with a turned down rifle barrel used as a liner. The one is a 20 ga. with a Winchester 94 AE barrel chambered in 375 Win. that I believe are still available from Numrich. The OD of...
