    Sighting in and working up a load

    I had an old TC stock, and purchased a Green Mountain .45 barrel for it about a year ago, but never got around to firing it. I had set the barrel up with a Lyman peep sight and a 17A front sight...something I have never done on a muzzleloader before. I went out to my range yesterday and gave it...

    A really good friend

    Just got back from the Commie left coast where I was visiting with friends and kids. One old friend of mine sent back a bunch of odds and ends of muzzleloading stuff, along with a couple of rifles. I took out the rolling block he gave me in 45/70 to my range today to play with it. I haven't got...

    File...defile...and file some more

    I recently purchased a new California sight for the front of my Manton style .40 caliber pistol. I had it sighted for a 6 o'clock hold and decided to try for a poa sight in instead. The California sight is really tall..which is great as it leaves you plenty of height to play with. I sighted it...

    Goex vs Swiss...etc

    Just a little curious about some others experiences and opinions. I've used Goex for probably the last 40 yrs. or so, and see no reason to change, but I read occasionally where some folks feel that some of the premium black powders out there are more consistent in the size of their granulation...

    White round balls

    Ran into a little problem I've never been faced with before. I opened up a box of Hornady .445's at a match last weekend, and they were really white and crusty. They shoot just fine, but it really sort of bugs me to be dealing with the rough corrosion on the balls. I came home and checked out...

    Shooting a turkey

    Went to a club match sunday...sure was chilly out ! They have specialty shoots for thanksgiving and Christmas and we had a turkey target to try and shoot the eye out at 25 yds...to win a turkey. The eye was about 1/2 inch across, and I thought I was fairly close, but no turkey. Another fella...

    Muzzleloaders at a gun show

    Went to a gun show in Tyler Texas today. Saw on TC Renegade completely covered with rust...hard to imagine a guy too darned lazy to even make it look somewhat presentable. I also saw a couple of nice 100 dollar single shot handguns...but unfortunately they were priced at 250 dollars. Some of...

    Waking up Brutus

    Deer season is just a month away, and this morning I decided to take out Brutus and see if all was well and it was ready. I fired a  few shots at 75 yds. as it's pretty tough for these old eyes to see the sight in stickers much further. A good friend gave me this rifle years ago, and it's a...

    Stopping browning in safe..

    I have developed a problem in one of my safes that I think is a result of a browning job I did some time back. I browned up a rifle...which I have done quite a few times before... and left it in a safe afterward. Somehow it seems like the safe wants to work like a browning cabinet or something...
