    FOR SALE Lyman Signature Series Great Plains by Pedersoli

    I’d say that 9.4 lbs is correct. I tried to weight it holding it on a bathroom scale. It came in right around 10lbs. Not the most precise scale for that.

    FOR SALE Lyman Signature Series Great Plains by Pedersoli

    I might regret this but I’m gonna let this rifle go. It’s a beautiful rifle but it’s way too heavy for what I want to use it for with an old shoulder injury. 10+ pounds. This is a new Lyman Great Plains Signature Series by Pedersoli I bought a few months ago. 54 caliber with 1/66 twist. I’ve...

    My local walmart muzzleloading regulations sign

    I was told cabelas is doing the same thing on ALL of their muzzleloaders. It’s a cover their butt thing I reckon. Cabelas won’t ship muzzleloaders directly to you anymore either. You must purchase in store.

    SOLD William Parker pistol

    I took this one in on a trade a while back and I’ve never shot it. It is pretty but I’d rather use the money on other fun flintlock stuff! If I was going to keep it, my ocd would have me filing all that “read directions use blackpowder only blah blah blah” crap off of the barrel. Traditions...

    SOLD 1851 Navy Sheriff .36 Black Powder Revolver

    He’s been on the forum this week according to his profile. I’d be leery from buying from someone that ignores inquiries.

    Pushing Daisies Patches - Issue?

    You’re getting there. Are you cleaning between shots or using lots of lube? Those shots that keep climbing higher are a sign of a progressively fouled barrel in my experience.

    Stuck ball in a charged rifle

    So you don’t have this issue again prior to shooting remove your nipple and blast all that leftover oil from your barrel and drum with brake cleaner. Let it evaporate and go to shooting. Use real blackpowder for best results.

    Stuck ball in a charged rifle

    If it makes you more comfortable, before attempting to pull the ball remove the nipple and fill the drum with your ballistol. That will totally douse the powder.

    Stuck ball in a charged rifle

    Pull the nipple and force as much black power in there as possible. Reinstall the nipple and fire it. If that doesn’t work use a puller. It won’t hurt anything. If you can’t get the powder to ignite with a cap you’re not going to ignite it pulling the ball out.

    Military rifles minie vs round ball.

    Discharge while loading

    Another good reason to swab between shots.

    Max range

    My gun will probably shoot better than what the single bead sight will allow me to achieve. 50 yards or less for me.

    SOLD Ruger Old Army Stainless

    My 1989 made Ruger OA is the most accurate handgun I’ve ever owned including modern ones. Someone may fuss at me but I’ve not met an Italian gun yet that will hold a candle to a Ruger in the accuracy dept. I’ve tried quite a few and was always disappointed. Good find hrt4me you won’t be...
