    Carrying C&B Supplies Historically?

    I can find no hard data on how much ammo an officer would carry. In the desperate fight on Little Round Tops in the battle of Gettysburg, officers must have fired MANY rounds, that scrap went on for hours, even the soldiers ran out of ammo and scavenged more from the dead and wounded of both...

    Le Page on it's Way!

    I got a ,33 Siber by HEGE, [I think it was made for them by Pedersoli.] It is beautifully accurate. I was delighted to beat 4 RCMP officers on the range recently, and may have made a couple of BP converts! I bought it from a gun-shop in the BC interior for about !/8th the list price.

    Tingle Model 1960

    I bought a Tingle pistol about 1960, a .40 cal ball just rattled down, I had to go to a .42 ball and then got beautiful accuracy. I also finished off a wounded moose with a lubed .429 44 Special bullet ahead of 40 grains of FFFG. Shot a lot of gophers with it, one out at 80 yards. Traded it to a...

    Chain fire seldom if ever occurs at the cylinder mouth. It happens when you use too large a cap and pinch it or NO cap, across the nipples. My first BP revolver was an original Navy .36,the nipples were burnt out to near 1/8". Didn't know my butt from page four, so I used the load Elmer Keith...

    Muzzle Loading Arms and Pioneer Crafts Show in Monroe, WA March 8 &9, 2008

    I second JCW's review. Prices are a pain everywhere, I found them no worse and in a few cases better in Monroe, and if you need something that has to do with BP,your chances of finding it are better even than at Friendship.
