Kent,

That group with the lines from 25 yards... That is an excellent group. My groups were about that size at 15yards. I think your going to have a really good shooter.

I probably should take a look at cylinder and chamber sizes as well. I think I'm going to take your lead and reduce my charge as well to see if I can tighten things up.

I have been experiencing some nipple problems too that I think are due to the very large flash hole size. I have been getting caps stuck in the hammer channel thing (don't know what the technical term is). Seems the cap blows off the nipple at ignition, push the hammer back some, and then the hammer lodges the cap back in the channel. Maybe a reduced charge will help, but I think new nipples will probably be needed. Or who knows, maybe a cap change will help. I'm using Rem #11s. CCI #10s are far too tight, perhaps CCI #11s will be the best way to go.

Try polishing the hammer nose (I also don't know the technical term). I've done this with my percussion revolvers, and it has seriously reduced cap jams. Youtube Mike Believeau's "A Cure for Cap Jamming" video. I think that's the name, might be something else.

 I'd also highly recommend Remington #10 caps. They fit, to quote Goldilocks, "just right," in my experience.

I think that all of the "Originals" for the National Match should meet at the Primitive camp to do their peer reviews, after shooting on Friday.

I also would like to invite anyone who might be interested in the "Originals" concept to attend.  This will give them an opportunity to see what else is involved other than shooting.  It might be of particular interest to those shooters who use a one hand hold and smokeless powder.  It can be like one of our Convention Seminars.

Since smokeless powder was available in the mid 1890s, an "Originals" character from that time could use smokeless.  I will be shooting "Originals" as an 1898 Railroad Detective.  I'll be using a 1892 take-down short rifle and an 1875 Remington.  Both are .44-40 and smokeless ammo is available in that caliber from the 1897 Sears Roebuck catalog.

Just received my rifle case.  Plain, light chocolate buffalo hide, no beading or quill.  The nicest case around.  Lined with wool blanket.  Bone button closure.  Will be ordering another for my flintlock.

Thanks again for the heads up.

Congratulations!  He does an excellent job.  Take a photo and share Smiley.   I'm fixing to order another too. (That's Texas talk for getting ready to).

EBay sure brings out the suckers, don't it?  At some point the Auction gets personal, and you GOT to have THAT item. I hate auctions!

......... While carefully protecting your wallet, back slowly out the door and back to the sidewalk.  Turn carefully up or down the street,  then RUN!!
