Oneokie,

I use LBT blue lube in my .45/70 smokeless loads with 40 gr. H4198 in a Browning 1885 Hiwall. There are others, but this is a very good lube, and I've never had any problems with it. Loads shoot very well from 90 deg to below zero. Check it out at www.lbtmoulds.com

Well, I dunno about all that fightin' stuff; perhaps an occasional spirited debate might be a more accurate description. And that was indeed very good shooting; 5 shots in a little less than 3/4 moa at 200 yards on demand. Nicely done.

Kelley O., Speaking of Gunny, do you ever hear anything from or about him anymore? I kinda remember he was having some health problems, and I think he sold a couple of his rifles. I miss his "see Spot run" common sense approach to a lot of things. Never missed a chance to call a spade a spade and no...

Hank, It doesn't look like you're getting many bites on your question re: Wyoming deer hunting. You might try contacting Mr. Steve Garbe in Cody, Wyoming. He is the editor of the BPC News, and I think he is a former big game guide. You might reach him easily on the Wyoming Schuetzen Union website. A...

I shoot a lot of H4198 in a .45/70 with a 405 gr. FN LBT bullet with good results. Do you guys have any info re: H4198 as a duplexing powder in a .45/70? If so, what proportions of H4198:ffg Goex black powder?

Coydog, I forgot to mention a couple of things re: the muskrats in the dam on your pond. If the water levels are fairly stable throughout the year the bank dens will stay close to that level. If they flucuate a lot over the year, the bank dens will be at multiple levels which is much worse for your ...

Coydog, You have a very nice looking place; my compliments. Kinda nice to have something like that, too. Reviewing your muskrat removal protocol I see nothing wrong with it at all. It looks to me like you have all your bases covered; just about everywhere the muskrats go to conduct their important a...

Kelley O., Thanks for the compliment. This is really getting away from BPCR, but you bring up a very good point re: muskrats. Muskrats really like to build bank dens and the majority of them are where the shoreline: water gradient is the steepest. In ponds and small lakes that typically is the face ...

Coydog, Beaver reamaining? It kinda depends, but this time of the year most beaver colonies are going to have 2 adults (probably 30-45 lb. size or larger), and last years litter of 3-6 kits (about 20-25 lbs at this time of year). Because of territorial behavior more than likely there is only 1 colon...

Coydog, Well, I got good news and bad news for ya. The good news is that now that your "crippled" you may still have an ace in the hole on the beavers should they return to insurgency country. Check the Ks. fur regulations to see if you can legally shoot beaver in Ks. during the open harvest season....

Throck, I've run into the same bent bases on the bigger bullets from Lyman moulds (#457132 and #457125). The way I solved the problem was to swing the sprue plate around during the cut-off procedure about 180 deg. from where it is when filling the mould. Then, while opening the mould slowly push dow...

Coydog,

Do you have any data/info on the effectiveness of the larger sizes of steel shot (e.g. T or F sizes) in relation to this subject?

Ranch, Click on the website in the post made by Steve R.; then click on "results" and viola--the whole shebang. Got that .40/65 shootin' them all in the same hole yet? I'm kinda toying with the thought of getting one of those in a Shiloh heavy octagon; kinda of heavier bench gun to shoot the Wyoming...
