Again, thanks you all for the comments and kindly sharing your knowledge.

The Darksider's Den / Re: Goex sold.

Most model rockets are indeed powered by a remixed form of Black Powder, usually wet mixed with a retardant such as powdered aluminum, and Goex has supplied much of the base powder for it.  They (Estes) ought to be well versed in the processes of grinding and mixing powder.

I would venture to say that powder for rocketry is probably a larger market than firearms powder in this country, probably behind only government consumption.  This would include fireworks rockets.

Estes Rockets builds model rocket engines and parts for the rockets themselves.  From what I read it is a family owned business "again". Since as far as I know model rockets are not propelled by black powder, one wonders if one or more of the family members is a muzzle loader or black powder cartridge shooter.  We can only hope.

Keeping my fingers crossed,

Good shooting! Are those Freund sights original to the gun? I've not heard of them before. Kinda looks like a built in peep.

I am using a 318 grain gas check bullet, sized .512, and AA5744 powder…







Well, it appears to be working for you that’s for sure.

It doesn’t get much better than that especially for a rifle that I would imagine is crawling up the backside of 130 years old.

I dearly appreciate these old 1876’s and would love to to have an original but they carry such a premium nowadays (especially the 50’s) I’ll make do with me reproductions.

What load did you use for your 100 yard group.

This is an original and they aren't cheap, but this is what it should look like...
