Re: wiping instead of blow tube

On the other side of this subject,

Have you ever found a BP barreled rifle that wiping was a mistake? And just maybe, the blow-tube saved the day?

Re: Trimming cases for B.S.

Is each powder charge weighed on proper powder scales before dropping thru the drop-tube, into the empty case?

Are all the cases fired in the same rifle?

When were the cases last cleaned well?

Just askin',

Re: .40-70 1885 Modern Repro - but who was the maker?

I have a Uberti 1885 highwall carbine style rifle that has the exact same markings on the bottom tang. Kinda late to the party though!


Hope this helps,

Jim

Sounds good I know but I remember trying it and getting water all over everything!
Think upside down Dixie cup with a 7/16ths dowel poked through the bottom, and let your imagination run amok !! :wink:
Ah, the old master's advice! I'll bet there's not much OLR has not tried, :lol: !

Re: Oiling bore for P.P.?

There has been some use of olive oil in a clean bore prior to the first shot. I didn't find that it made cleaning-up any easier, although some shooters may.

YMMV

Re: NATIONALS!

Without a doubt, the Nationals are a fine test of man and rifle. And with certain fellows being "on a roll" these days, well I guess we'll find out :lol: ! My old carcass won't stand that much activity behind a big-bore rifle anymore, so it kinda leaves me out of such grand events. I wish all attend...
