    Fast Twist and PRBs - Accuracy

    We recently inherited A Lyman .54cal Great Plains Rifle with an additional Great Plains Hunter Barrel. I have witnessed the RB barrel shoot into 1" at 100yds using a max charge of GOEX 3F, from a bench rest. Ol' Wes sure could make that gun walk and talk! Not having seen the Hunter barrel...

    PRB Loading Blocks - Dirt/Grit?

    Howdy Folks, We have several of the loading blocks for PRB but have never used them for hunting. Have always been concerned about the way they seem to collect dirt, grit, lint and etc around the loading bench and in the possibles bag. Of course one could place the loaded board inside its own...

    Pedersoli Frontier rifle .36/.32cal

    Anyone care to comment on their experience with the Pedersoli (flintlock) Frontier rifle in .32 or .36 caliber? (Tried doing an advanced search and came up with 500 hits the first time and 212 the second.) They are a little on the heavy side for a small game rifle (for my taste) but not...

    Howdah Pistol - More Powder/Velocity

    Howdy Folks, Finally got to burn some more Pyrodex P in our Pedersoli .62cal with PRB. The following loads have proved safe in our weapon but can not recommend their use in any other. As you may remember we achieved 660fps with 40gr (by volume) of powder. Today we registered 910fps with 70gr...

    Commercial Sausage

    Ladies & Gents, Would appreciate some recommendations for a commercially available "summer" type sausage that is not loaded with fat and salt. About the only thing available to us locally are the Hickory Farms and Hormel brands which are way too greasy for our tastes, these days. Also have...

    Waterproof Hunting Frock

    Ladies & Gentlemen, I have misplaced the website address of the company that makes/sells a hunting frock (overcoat?) that is fairly waterproof. It is made from some sort of "oil cloth" type material. It seems ideal for our style of trekking. Appreciate it if someone will provide the address or...

    Howdah Pistol (20ga) - Velocity Review

    Howdy Folks, Ran a few rounds across the screens this morning, looking for a load to fulfill our requirements. We do not recommend said powder charges for use in any weapon other than our own.

    Mink Oil at -45 Degrees Below Zero

    Howdy Folks, The Mink Oil (from TOW) seen in the photo has been cold soaked to -45 degrees below zero F. By the time we got around to taking the photo, the sun was shining and warmed the thermometer up considerably. Ambient temperature was still fairly brisk. As you can see, the Mink Oil has...

    Where Are the Hare??

    Hi Folks, BrownBear has been kind enough to provide a new recipe but we need another Hare to fill the pot. Yesterday loaded up and headed out on our Alaskan Mule-et. The temperature was a very pleasant +11 degrees. Unfortunately the wind kicked up (30-35mph) which raised the wind chill factor...

    Yak Horn

    Wife picked up the mail today. It has been awhile since the temperatures have been holding at -42 degrees below 0, in the morning. This is one of three horns Brasilikilt has made for us. We have been very pleased with every one of them. What makes this one extra special (for us) is that it is...
