    Smoky smell.

    Maybe just rub skunk on it! That should hide the smell

    Immoveable Traditions sights

    You have tried hitting it sideways. Try hitting down just in case there is rust or something in the join. Don't hit too hard as it may make it tighter. This may help loosen it. As a last resort make a saw cut part of the way through. This will relieve the end to end pressure. The deeper you cut...

    What would you choose?

    No predators of note here. A few small roos and heaps of small game. So 14g SXS and Remington New army. Musketoon would be nice though....

    Starting out casting balls and bullets

    Canberra aye. Only 4 hours from me. What and wheresabouts do you hunt? Not precisely just general area. FYI - In Leeton. Moved here a few months back. Have been hunting twice so far and only managed to see a hare's backside. Not quite what I was hoping for.

    It would change things. It just a question of how much. The muzzle blast basically reflects off the jag onto the bullet pushing it. If we could mention non muzzleloaders I would point out that Mosin Nagants are sighted in with a fixed bayonet and the front sight is visibly off centre due to this...

    Traditional and accurate

    If you are serious about range look at an English Target rifle like the Henry by Rod England. 45 cal shoots conicals to several hundred yards. This sort of thing
