Re: How much is too much Leade. ?

I would advice against a .230" gap between the wad and bullet. It's a disaster possible. It might or might not show up after the first shot but the potential is there. Keep in mind, when that powder is lit it's a good chance the bullet will be wall to wall in the chamber. But I breach seat a groove ...

Re: Figure of Merit and Accuracy

Brent that is a good way. I look at the average even when I see 4-6" groups at 200. With 2" or 3" that land out the group the average can still be good.
You can still shoot 8's, 9's and 10 and get a couple 7 will still win the match with a average 3 MOA :)

Re: How much is too much Leade. ?

Brian If he is doing this I would use caution not to go too deep and I would not use a wad like felt because they are not dense enough. If the bullet is, say .458/9" and the cylinder freeborn is .460 or plus a little I would not worry about needing extra wads because the bullet would obturate tase e...

Re: How much is too much Leade. ?

IMG_0317 copy.jpeg When you say freebore, are you referring to a cylinder or a tapered ? there is a difference in the way they perform. I have rifles with all three different chamber ends, 45 degree, cylinder, and tapered (funnel) plus tapered compound throats. 40-65 browning copy.jpeg Here is a 4 ...

Re: 38-50 vs. 38-56

I had a .38-56 back in the 70's but it was a 86 Win. and it only had the barrel sights but it shot well. But back then I still had eyes that needed no corrections. I loaded the rounds with black and smokeless powder and both loads shot well. as far as long range accuracy I cant say because I never s...

Re: Powder moisture one more time

I might give it a try. I have some Swiss in two different lots as well some OE 2 and 1.5 F. I just started a new lot of 2F OE and worked up several 5 shot ladder loads for the .45-90 and 84 and 85 grain loads will throw one shot out out of the group that is 2" or less out 1-1/2"- 2" and it's startin...

Re: cookie cutter

Why mess around with a cookie cutter that will do nothing but stick a pile of lube wads together on a pile and get deformed when you pick them up. Get a 12" shallow straight walled round cake pan put it on a hot plate with a little water in it and some lube and let it simmer for a while till all lub...

Re: Paper rings

Brent I had that happen a few times with my .40-70 and I think your right about the case being to close to the 45 degree chamber end. Also I think it also has something to do with the patch folded under not far enough that keeps the wad from catching both wraps with a shallow seated bullet. That mad...

Re: We are back!!!

Oak Ridge is on my list to make this year but I have to pass the early one. I just picked up 1300 sqf of 3/4" hardwood flooring I will start laying in about a week when it matches the moisture in the subfloor. I hope I get it done by Alma because from Alma the Gypsy wagon will be putting on miles. G...
