    YAHOO (you always have other options). Contact some of the guys that swage and bum some of the small lead wire pieces that are extruded in swaging. No need to crimp, pinch or bite. Just clip off what you want and wrap around a loop in the line. ...

    BAW, can't argue with success like that. Whatever you're doing, keep on doing it. From my experience, a GC hides a lot of sins and base divots and they usually shoot better than do PB bullets with divots. Now, this is a discussion thread so I'm...

    You shouldn't need a gas check in a .45-70. Find a bullet that slips into a fired unsized case with slight resistance, that should be the right size. I used to shoot a 500 gr. bullet with excellent accuracy in mine

    I keep some 1/4 X 28 stainless all-thread in the shop to make vents if needed. I don't mind installing a vent that somewhat over laps the breech plug. The drill will make some clearance on the face. I then unbreech the barrel, and smooth the...

    I would specify a MUZZLELOADER gunsmith. Many modern gun mechanics are not that familiar with them. You want someone who knows where to put the vent.

    Degrease the mechanism, and use reverse electrolysis to remove the rust. Reducing pressure on the spring is the correct route, You may even want to thin it. I have no idea why they make the spring so strong. I personally detest set triggers, and...

    I agree, don't care for the threads on the White Lightening, although the tap isn't all that hard to come by. They were popularized by the eastern cult. They work no better than a standard 1/4 X 28 vent. Another point on that. Vents DO wear out....

    I get daily real estate listings. There are some reasonably priced properties in the Lemon, S.D. area. If you want cheap and dry, look at Glasgow, Montana. Only problem is, you are a LONG way from anything resembling a real town.

    Good job. too many are afraid to tackle a plank build. I find them easy to do, and you can make them as you like. Too many kits have sloppy inletting, or the lock mortise out of place. I've not done a Kibler kit, but they apparently have such good...

    I was advised that if you have to go to an old well that hadn't been pumped from for quite awhile, to dump in a gallon of bleach, then let the water run for 24 hours to clean the system.

    I had one done when I was a young kid, and another when I was in my 20's. Very little pain, and no bruising at all. What the heck are they doing to cause bruising?
