    Hammer throw?

    It’s important to know if you are replacing a hammer. If the throw is different than the original, it may not hit the nipple correctly. Same with a flint. It needs to hit the frizzen face correctly to get good spark and not chew up flints. At least that is my understanding of it.

    2019 Elk hunt

    Tsaan Wookkuh elkslayer!!! That definitely sounds like quite the haul! But that is elk hunting, especially late season! I’ve taken several calf elk, when they present themselves without a full grown elk for comparison it’s very hard to tell. But as you know, there is not much better table...

    Hunting Question

    Walkingeagle, you have me wanting to go out and try shooting a few geese!! Sounds yummy. Not many geese where I’m at but I knew a guy who used to go after them. Jump shoot them on the river. I may have to try it!

    Casting round balls

    I have been casting ball for over 20 years. I still use a cast iron pot a fire/burner and a lee dipper. I have bag molds and Lee molds. That is all you need. Want is a whole other matter. roto metals and sometimes Midway USA for lead. Some say pure others argue alloy. I shoot wheel weights...
