Most anything will work. My preference in black powder loads is 16-1 or 20-1 lead tin. Smokeless in higher velocity I like #2 alloy

Looks great.  How do you line up the barbed wire?  Do you draw a centerline with dividers?

Good morning all!  What's a good mix of alloys to use for casting. Pure lead , wheel weights,  linotype and solder to be used. Just asking. Joel Foss

Going to bed, not doing to much but my pulse is at 63.  BP right on the dot 123/62.   Even had coffee and moved some small boxes of books someone left Rita in off the porch and never went over 85.  Not going to try and pick up anyone who falls but much better.

Hey Pard, if .44 Henry was fired in the Remington .46 rf NMA, would the .44 case split?
Looking forward to this shoot!

Stages are set (I think they look fun, but I might be partial)
Packets are printed.

27 shooters so far, more are still welcome!!!

Thursday is the shoot through for range officers, and 4 stages for those who are not able to make Sunday's portion!

Friday is side matches and long range!!

I've been experimenting with some black powder loads for .45 Colt. Hopefully to come up with something that won't foul the rifle bore after just 10 rounds. Found a bullet mold that allows for MORE lube, but haven't shot any of those yet. Why procrastinate when I can put it off until tomorrow?

No real need to experiment, there are already proven bullet molds that allow you to shoot a six stage match with a 24 inch barrel using holy black. Just pick one and have fun, I guess one can call it an experiment for good measure though. I've even got one for a 32wcf that I run sixty plus rounds without cleaning.

 Good Troy, i wasn't sure what i was (am) going to do w/ the barrel as in taper or oct. or 1/2 rd. I remember see a 22 w/ this style of front sight (50 yrs. ago), so i copied it, more or less so help yourself and glad to help.

 Ranch 13, it was like i said someone's project that never got finished. I was friends w/ the feller. He was building it for a target shooter but died from an aneurism. It had a large forearm (not finished) & a broken stock w/ a high cheek piece. I'm still not sure i will keep it myself. BUT, i'm having a good time and enjoying shooting it(her)I still have a few questions about the action and will be looking for some help. The Williams peep sight is working out just fine, i not really a scope guy.

  coffee's ready,  Hootmix.

Looks like it may have been a parade rifle at one time.
Does it have the slide bar extractor or the rotary ejector?
Should make a dandy hunting rifle if you can cover the shine on the action.
