    I'll double down on the suggestion for the Lyman 457122 Gould. It has been the quintessential Eastern 45-70 boolit since its inception. More history here than any of its follow-on copies. And...

    Since you have a 98 Mauser action I would not worry about the cases. They are as strong if not stronger than the original - since they are all based off the same case anyway. Your other actions I...

    Let me clarify - I use sawdust to clean the melt. That is basically once and done until I introduce more lead to the pot. This is a 20 lb. pot on a gas burner. I use wax to reduce the tin back...

    Of course they rely on beetles and flys for pollination, prior to the European transfer there were no honey bees in America.

    When I add new lead to the pot I flux with sawdust. To reestablish the tin in the melt I flux with wax. I do this whenever my melt gets stringy, or when I see tin on the surface of the pot. Those...

    Exactly. Happiness is secondary, always stimulated by something else. Joy is of the Spirit and is spontaneous.

    25-06. When I was in Grad School I had one - that was 40 years ago. Was at the range shooting it and a guy came up to me and asked if I had used any H870? I said No. He said, "You ought to, that...

    Wow! I guess Greg hasn't looked at Rom. 8:28 and 8:29 together. 8:29 defines 'good' in 8:28, sometimes I think separating the Greek up into verses has done us a disservice - no one would have...

    I would not touch a Krag original in 45-70. They are not strong enough for that cartridge, not as strong as the Trapdoor. I agree, the Shikari but limit it to trapdoor loads - it will hurt on both...

    I have seen mounts that fit between bricks, tensioning between the two bricks. I don't know where to get them though.
