That's a vast improvement over what it was. I'd say it's good enough for display purposes. Well done.

I have been using 35.0 grains of 5744 with a 330 grain bullet. I have been contemplating getting a bullet mold that uses a gas check. Thinking being it will enhance accuracy considerably.

Hooray !

Estees has a pretty good reputation. Smart move on their part.
Now Estes can take over the lucrative Govt contracts for BP....

prf mumbles

I've wondered about Govt contracts for BP. Is it really still lucrative? With the retirement of the Iowa class battleships is there a large demand for the military? It was my understanding those big cannons on those ships had already been decommissioned long before the ships themselves were and have even heard rumor that the government had left over stash of BP in quantities to last the next hundred or more years with current rate of use. Can someone with more intel elaborate on this subject?

 :)  Hi Ya Biltmore  :D

I have several thoughts (the resultant pain is horrible).  Whilst I have reservations about whacking off your long barrel (fella up on 'gunsmithing' looking for one), you might consider changing out the Carrier Block (If it's not the "old" short block).  Or reshaping the cartridge return ramp.  should you elect to whack it off, consider a "special" Carrier Block from The Smith Shop and shoot C45S cases.  In which case you could whack it off to 16" if desired.

My thought though, is to sell it on and grab up something more user friendly for us more "seasoned" players.  Those long barrels suddenly aren't fun anymore if you know what I mean.

Referencing Powder Coating as a "Lube."   It's going to depend on your propellant.  Shooting powder coated bullets with that heathen Fad Smokeless may be well acceptable.  Shooting powder coated bullets with APP based Subs will work a treat since APP based subs require NO lube at all. 

Shooting Powder Coated bullets with Black Powder may be somewhat less than optimum.  Not necessarily a Harmonious outcome.  The powder fouling from Black Powder is cumulative and as firing continues, the fouling hardens severely and will completely fill the grooves.  The prime purpose of BP Lube is to keep the BP fouling soft enough to deal with.  While Powder Coat may (or may not) help with leading, is will not help with BP fouling.

The short answer is . . TA DA . .  Your stuck with using a lube.  Unless shooting APP based Subs.
