Re: Paper patch 45/70 bullets

It’s tit for tat as for the differences. Books can be written to answer your question. Better to ask a single question and don’t ask which is better, lol.

Re: New member saying hello

Welcome, before I would invest in any great amount of brass I would find four or five pieces of whats available on the market and give each a try. Plenty of trail and error in finding what a new rifle likes and that goes for molds, bullet types, primers, etc. Lucky for you that you have a mentor, go...

Re: Rifles designed in other countries eligibility

Just another thought as a reason why American only would be the number of makes that are true black powder cartridge rifles and the additional burden of what is safe and what is not. Too many makes and a good number were marginaly safe when new. Sure would be nice though to see the better foreign ma...

Re: Rifles designed in other countries eligibility

Due to it's uniqueness and unavailibility to those that compete in this sport I would say no. Now if it was American made back in the day and is made in large numbers today I would say fine. We need as many interests as possible to keep the game going and exclusion should be and is at the bottom of ...

Re: Pedersoli high wall won't eject shell

If it makes you feel any better a friend has a $3000 American made rifle that suffered from a number of problems that were easily obvious to any QA person. The Italian Highwalls on average are serviceable from the getgo. A visit to a competent gunsmith may be in order if a visual inspection finds no...

Re: Pedersoli high wall won't eject shell

Besides what Brent has stated, remove the stock and forearm and using a bright light operate the action to see if and what could be interferring with the action's movement. Sometimes just the removal of the wood in itself frees up the action. These rifles come off a production line and anything is p...

Always finish my barrel clening with a wet patch of Ballistol, nothing puts a stop to rust better.

Re: new caliber help

The drawback is the the brass. I tried one with shortened Prvi Partizon 303 British brass and found the neck area for the 40-50 to be way to thick. Never did get the thing to reliably seal the neck and was left with so-so accuracy, ten shot groups usually had 2 or 3 fliers. I heard Winchester 30-40 ...

Re: 1000 yard sporting scope

Don't go cheap if you are a serious shooter. The cheap scopes are lacking in one area, the most critical one, that being quality glass. Do yourself a favor, attend a long range match and ask the competitors for a looksee through their scopes, a few looks will show you the difference I'm talking abou...

Re: New 1886 Winchesters in .45/90

The new 86's will take any of the loads listed for the 90 by powder makers. The design prohibits going past their recommended loads. That said, the max published loads will pound your shoulder into mush post haste.

Plastic wad orientation

This thought crossed my mind and I wish to ask if there has been any discussion about which way the plastic wads should be facing when seated. I'm thinking the sharp/cut edge should be facing down and the rounded/extruded edge facing up against the bullet's base. It maybe a waste of time but just cu...

Re: Current Lyman Postell mold quality

For the little difference in money I would go with the RCBS molds. Very excellent machining and metal quality. If only shooting black powder the correct lead to tin ratio is more critical that bore/groove fitment, obtruration is your friend. Good luck.

Re: How Clean is Clean?

Was the barrel producing clean patches before the last shooting event. If yes then continue cleaning, if not then a examination with a bore scope may be necessary to see the condition of the bore. Pits and machining marks can hold a bunch of fouling.
