    March shoot: Bulls-eye partner shoot.

    Kansas Jake was one of the great people that welcomed me to the Sunflower State when the Army decided it was in the best interest of National Defense if I moved here. Been some good times are the range. My son and I got ours shot, they'll be in the mail ever so shortly

    tumbling balls

    I agree w/Dutch--I find that is usually a good practice--it was something that came up in conversation so I thought I'd see what the general wisdom here was. Thanks for the discussion

    tumbling balls

    OK, that title sounds a little suspect. What I'm wondering is if anyone puts cast balls into a tumbler to smooth them out and knock the spru off. Any thoughts?

    lock tuning

    OK, life is GOOD, got the new touch hole liner from RMC Ox-yoke as was recommended checked the length it was perfect. Now when pan flashes it is followed by boom that messes with the M4 crowd down the shooting line. Thanks all!

    lock tuning

    Thanks, I'll do some more playing when I get to the range again, range time here is extremely limited due limited opening and I don't live in an area where i can shoot in my back yard. Neighbors and such....

    lock tuning

    ok, then I guess I'm about right, the bottom of the touch hole liner is right about at the bottom of the pan. Having a devil of a time getting it to fire. good flashes in the pan, but not touching off the charge more than about one in 5 or 6 attempts, picking the hole. FFF in the pan, because...

    lock tuning

    OK, upon further review, I don't think the screw would adjust the pan, it is the frizzen hinge screw. How, therefore, do I get the touch hole to the base of the pan so that it hits that "sunset" position?

    lock tuning

    I got my Lyman rifle all back together but with the new barrel the touch hole is significantly above the bottom of the pan. As I look at the lock it looks like I can adjust the pan up by loosening a screw at the front of the pan, however I am having a TERRIBLE time getting it loose, I've...
