    Yessir, I just came in from getting it all back together, it was upside-down. Thanks for your response. I will check out those videos.

    Can anyone tell me if I have the mainspring installed correctly on my new rifle? There is a good video online I was following, but my lower tang screw (under the lever) retains the strut support with the hammer strut & coil spring in tension on the...

    I tried 42g above, and it was accurate with little to no leading. I suspect the small amount that was there was from before. It may take some time to get it all out. The published velocity by Lyman is 1258fps - I'm shooting whitetails and hogs...

    I can try that also, wondering about the lead myself. But loading down to 42g made all the diff in the world! Man, can't get a photo to attach, but just shot 4 inside 2", and 3 of them were 1" or less. Makes me rethink whether I still want a...

    Thanks, I meant to put the sizes down. The bullets were .458, .459, and .460, and the mic out pretty much that way. I'll try to find some jacketed bullets and inspect the bore. I still have to order some lead to slug the bore, just figured I...

    I finally bought a new 1886 deluxe, and looking to start casting bullets for it. I wanted to try a few to see how it shot before investing in mounds. I can't get anything to shoot well, or even ok. I tried two bullets from Montana Bullet Works,...
