    BRUSHING

    The scrub brush I use for cleaning my barrel is pretty standard. I screw it on to the end of my cleaning rod. It consists of twisted wire with little brass wires protruding. It's about 2" long and maybe the thickness of a pencil. Ok. Was wondering if there are any other kinds of cleaning...

    SCREWED?

    Was trying to sight in my Seneca and found the Elevation and Windage screws virtually impossible to adjust. The slots TC cut in them are so pathetically shallow, I can barely get a grip with a screwdriver and wind up burring or gouging part of the head which only makes it worse. Can the screws...

    IT WAS BOUND TO HAPPEN.

    Was sighting in my .45 Seneca with FFFG instead of FFG today. Everything was going fine ( had fired 5 or 6 times with no problem). However, I feel I may have been concentrating on moving the gun sights and maybe forgot to load the powder. Anyway, I pulled on 3 caps and nothing happened. So...

    LET'S START WITH YOUR UNDIES...

    I once knew a someone who wore Real Tree Camo, Insulated Leather Boots, Thermal Fleece Underwear, Gortex & Thinsulate Parkas, Wool/Polyester Socks, Hand Warmers, Thick Flannel Shirts and Arctic Shield Gloves. This guy loved to hunt deer. He would pack a lunch and stay in the field from dawn to...

    WHAT TO WEAR...WHAT TO WEAR?

    Question: As far as one's persona goes, does geographic locations have any influence of the type of persona one chooses? So if one lives in the East, but they really like the fur trade period of the West, would it be odd or wrong to dress like say, a Jim Bridger? Or, if someone lived in...

    LEARNING THE TWIST

    I am not too much of a ballistics guy, but I shoot a PRB .45 Seneca with a 1/48 twist. I was wondering what other twists are out there (1/60 ?) for consideration if I wanted to drop in a new barrel? Also, in a .45, what kind of results could I expect from each of the other twists shooting a...

    PATCH THICKNESS

    Hey all. I've been using an .018 pillow ticking patch lubed with mink oil in my .45 T/C Seneca with 50 grains GOEX FFg. At 25 yards and 50 yards, my shots are within a 2" bull. I am looking to increase my accuracy and knock down power out to 60 or 65 yards by increasing my powder charge and...

    CAN A .45 DRIVE TACKS?

    Been shooting a ML for only about 2 years now. So I have several questions. I shoot a Percussion .45 TC Seneca with a .440 Hornady lead PRB (which I assume is 127 grains) and 50 grains of Goex FFg. It is accurate out to 50-55 yards. Where I live here in the East, most shots are less than 75...

    KEEP ME IN STITCHES

    I was thinking about making some small leather items such as pouches, ball bags, etc. Being it is not likely I will be purchasing a sewing machine, does any one have any advice as to how to stitch up the leather? Long ago there used to be something called a "Speedy Stitcher" that you would...
