    Is it uncool to use Pyrodex?

    When I was shooting BPCR silhouettes seriously I did a great deal of load development. I tried Pyrodex and found the velocity standard deviation to be greater than with regular BP. So - I used regular BP as it was more accurate. In my experience BP performs better in my muzzleloaders as well...

    WANTED Hawksley Style Powder Flask

    I am in search of a serviceable, original powder flask with a Hawksley style spout adjustable in drams of powder. I would be happy with a Dixon & Sons, Hawksley, or other flask by an original maker. I am looking for a flask to use, not display. I picked up a reproduction recently and the...

    FOR SALE Powder horn $150

    Years ago my wife and I decided to use and enjoy the nice things we have. Too many folks “save” the fine china for “special” occasions. We decided a dinner can be special any time - so we use it. I carry that beautiful horn you made and use it. We still care for things, but if something gets...

    What Muzzleloading Stuff Did You Do Today?

    I went out and patterned 8 different powder/wad combinations in my shotgun. I brought the targets home. Homework is counting all the holes… I’ll report when the tedium is concluded.

    The did you ever thread......

    This thread is a jinks. Just YESTERDAY I drove out to the ranch and took the Polaris SxS. I wanted to go check a place I have been baiting for hogs and add some corn. I dropped the gate to the trailer, took all the tie-down straps off, climbed into the seat of the SxS and reached for the...

    What's the wooden gizmo with the brass end that is in the metal tin? It's the thing sitting on the thin card wads.

    Thank you. Just last night I ran across this YouTube video by capandball that demonstrated the same loading. His patterns improved dramatically. Gary

    Hunting in the rain

    I hope this question isn't too much thread drift: If you hunt in the rain with a gun that has the stock pinned to the barrel, what concerns do you have about moisture under the barrel after hunting in the rain? How do you manage drying that out to discourage rust or other issues?

    Powder Flask for Shotguns

    Unfortunately I don't have an oportunity to visit many gun shows. Good ones are a significant distance away from where I live. Dumping a preset charge into a small cup is no great inconvenience - I had never seen those until Feltwad posted that picture.

    Powder Flask for Shotguns

    @BoomStick Thanks. Yes, Henry Krank has good stuff - I tried to order from him once before and he wouldn’t ship to the US.
