    LAGS replied to a thread Woodysrocks Puck die in Muzzleloading.
    I bought Two dies from Fly a few years back. I have just about worn one out. But I have had no contact for a couple years with fly. That die that you show , looks like it is very good. That may be a good investment. When I first started making...

    LAGS replied to a thread Goes Clear Shot in Muzzleloading.
    Just for safety, I would stay away from using it as is. But the suggestion to mix it with other powder is doable. Or just make fireworks out of it.

    Did that happen on only one shot. Or was it a consistant issue ?

    I have the same issue with my chuck loosening up. But if I tighten it up with a pair of pliers , it works better. But still not if you are working on metal and grinding hard. But my other two rotary tools like Craftsman and Ryobe have the collets.

    Do a few tests in the barrel channel. That way you are staining the wood that you are actually using. And if you don't like the spot test , the barrel will cover it up. But don't color test in places like under the butt plate. That is End Grain...

    The first M N that I shot was one my dad brought back from Korea in 1951. He sold it back in the '70s because he couldn't find hunting ammo for it. But I have had over 30 over the years. I am down to 4 now that I am downsizing my collection now...

    Alcohol based dyes like for leather , penetrate pretty deep. And they dry faster. But are expensive compared to oil base stains. Heck. I even thin Linseed oil and Tru Oil for doing the first coats on my stocks. Turpentine works best. But...

    I used the Minwax Ebony stain to darken some walnut grips for a pistol before. It was a small project. So I don't know how it would look doing a rifle stock in it.

    Years ago. I took a cut off section of an octagon barrel and welded 4 pieces of steel rod to the cut off piece so it slipped on to the rifles barrel indexed. Kind of like a False Muzzle. I would load the slugs thru the cut off section I could...

    I am with the bending of the wedge. I have put a oiled paper shim under the barrel. That works good. But you have to remember to reinstall it every time you pull the barrel.

    Thanks MaryB, I’ve used the foam that comes in a can on an ice maker once and it was messy got it on my hands and was difficult to get off. Probably smarter now and will use rubber throw away gloves.

    The pins should drive in from the right. Drive out from the left. Hold the rifle or pistol and point it . The right side is on your right. After all. Isn't a gun an extension of Your Body.
