    Italian Made Guns

    The 1860 is may be the best Colt, not only for accuracy, but it is a beauty very comfortable to hold, nice and good gun... For the Italians I hope too that they can make again arms quickly, for them first because that will be a good signal and for us after... The situation, like your I guess, is...

    Pure saltpetre (KNO³), you can get it here as food additive : https://www.amazon.com/HUMCO-263794001-Potassium-Nitrate-Shape/dp/B0773N1CLG/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=salpeter&qid=1586377763&sr=8-1

    Remington 1858 questions.

    You just have to make a supersaturation of KNO³ in te water. When the Saltpetre begins to not dissolve in the water the mix is good. Put the paper in the bath and let it dry on a flat and non-absorptive surface, never let the paper suspended like a drying cloth: the water will drain your...

    Using a smaller Minie ball.

    I don't see a solution in this case: if the .575 " Minié is wrapped, you get a ball well over the .578". You could do it with a double calibration of the .575" and a wrapping after this operation, but there would still be the problem of the thickness of the paper: it must be very thin to make...

    Rollin' My Own.......

    There is no confusion between "Traction" and "Friction": with tea filter paper, the cartridges are stronger: the cartridges do not tear as easily as with coffee filter paper. Give it a try and I think you'll see for yourself...

    Rollin' My Own.......

    The tea bags are made of non-woven paper, moderately pressed between the rolls and very resistant to traction and they burn very well, not the coffee filters which are made of a kind of paper that looks a bit like porous cellulose that retains too much KNO³ and they do not resist to traction . I...

    Rollin' My Own.......

    For pistol and revolver, tea bags I guess, but for rifle (Sharps 59) paper Kraft nitrated like what I do when I don't do the cartridges in flax tissue, I don't really believe in coffee filter paper it is not strong enough: 500gr of lead for the bullet ... 😰

    who all uses peeps on their percussion guns.

    All my percussion rifles have a vernier and a ring front sight, only my flinters and the Jukar Plain rifle haven't that prosthesis. But for those rifles I use a Lyman Eyepal... You know what, when you become an old man the barrels (like your arms) become too shorts and this is proportional to...

    Traditions Kentucky Pistol Range Review

    Carbon6 is right, if your target is a 10m target you can't do it that's sure, but if the target is a 25m at 10 normally you can do it : an 25 international target have a ring of 5cm (2") and a international 10 target a ring of 1cm (0,4")... So in a real target for 10m with a .45cal Kentucky the...
