    Texas by God replied to a thread fuzzy balls in Muzzleloading.
    Put them in a plastic bowl and pour a can of Coke on them. Rinse with water and repeat if necessary. LLA coating (light) will prevent it from happening to stored balls. Sent from my SM-A716U using Tapatalk

    I'm smiling; I learned to drive in a Morris pickup. Cute little breakdown prone thing that was built like a tank. Every time I shoot my wife's 999 H&R .22, the Webley crosses my mind. Sent from my SM-A716U using Tapatalk

    I'm betting that you get it lined out. What did the fired case look like? A 700 in .280 Remington has been on my wish list as long as I've had wish lists. Sent from my SM-A716U using Tapatalk

    A foot of 3/4" copper pipe can be used as a non- marring cheater bar for increased leverage in times like those. Or did your last post mean that you broke it? Yikes, I hope not. Sending it to Remington isn't an option anymore...... Sent from my...

    I'd love to have a Remington 788 6mm- with the bolt handle on either side. A 22-250 788 was my introduction to centerfire rifles- and a good one. Sent from my SM-A716U using Tapatalk

    I'll ask both of you- was there a K98 "standard" pattern- or did Mauser, BRNO, Sauer, etc. use different buttplates, bands and hardware on the stocks? I've seen laminated or walnut stocks on different K98 rifles. Sent from my SM-A716U using...

    I reused a Sako/ Browning .308 barrel to put together a .300 Savage on a 98/22 Mauser. It turned out accurate and handy - so my nephew talked me out of it- and then had me rechamber it - to .308! The price of a box of .300 Savage ammunition scared...

    I've used two Richard's stocks. They were seconds, which meant I had to do a bit of corrective shaping or fill small knot holes- but the figure was amazing for the price. This was 15 years ago or so so- I don't have any recent dealings to speak of....

    The 6.8mm SPC is based on the .30 Rem case which basically is a rimless .30-30. My idea was to make a rimmed 6.8 SPCR for use in single-shot actions using .30-30 brass. I used a Ruger #3 for my SS so I just chambered for the standard 6.8. It has...
