    Same Caliber For Rifle and Fusil?

    Great information. Thank you all! My rifle is a .58 so, after thinking about it, I'd still rather have mu fusil as a .62 than .58 They're going to have seperate shooting bags etc anyway.

    Just rambling... about bears and shelter and just thinking...

    I agree about the tent being no protection. But what I think it does is possible offer even a few seconds of warning. Maybe gives me a couple of seconds to react in contrast to waking up with my head in the bear's mouth. As far as your encounter, that must've been something. Imagine waking up...

    Canoe Alternatives

    That's a great idea! I'm considering doing the same thing. At the very least it will be a sort of coyote brown with the aluminum edges in flat black. And now I know you're the guy on youtube shooting his flintlock like a maniac! I think it's awesome that you do those videos!

    I Need Balls!

    OK I have to look for a place that'll sell maybe ten of several sizes. Going to check the links up the thread again.

    Let's see your Belt or Rifleman's knife

    I'm trying to decide which of these knives to make my main belt knife, with another on my shooting bag. My era of choice is French and Indian War; maybe a Frenchman living with Native Americans, or a Spaniard in same situation having somehow wound up in the NE. I don;t that that matters, but...

    I Need Balls!

    Apologies if this is a silly question, but what do you recommend for patch material that is 18 thousandths of an inch? I plan to keep lubed strips that I hang from my bag strap and cut with my knife. Thank you!

    I Need Balls!

    That's exactly what I want to set up: not needing a short starter needed! I think short starters are OK for target and competition, but for woods running etc. they seem to be a hindrance. I'll check that out, THANKS!

    Same Caliber For Rifle and Fusil?

    Howdy! My Mark Silver rifle is a .58 caliber. I was looking at TOTW Fusil de Chasse kit and it's available in a .58 as well. Would it be a good idea to get the Fusil in .58? My original idea was in .62/20g but just thinking if it would be a good idea to be able to use the same ball mold. New...

    I Need Balls!

    Good afternoon gentlemen! I need to determine what ball size to use before getting a mold for my Mark Silver rifle from Jim Chambers. The rifle is .58 Caliber. Anyone know where I can get some balls of a few sizes to try out, and what sizes? I figure maybe 5-10 of three sizes? Thank you!

    Tomahawk Touch-up and Handle Material

    PS Any ideas on making the handle stronger? I read somewhere that submerging it in something like linseed oil for a few days makes it practically unbreakable. I live in AZ and I think the dry climate makes the wood more prone to cracking.

    Tomahawk Touch-up and Handle Material

    Went to the hardware store and nothing. I am seriously thinking of using the oak scraps I have. Still need to determine if I need to anneal the hawk head. If so, I'll look up some videos on how to do that, and it'll give me an excuse to build myself a little mini wood forge!
