    Ignition woes

    there ya go! I used to shoot pyrodex a lot, love it! But like you, ignition was a real B at times. Switch out the nipple for the spitfire or the redhot and you'll see a great difference in how she goes boom. Turn that gun over and smack it too. Its key to filling up that drum.

    Ignition woes

    The Spitfire nipple (Hollow base ) or the Knight redhot are the best. i didnt see what powder you are using, but if its not real black, powders such as pyrodex or t7 are harder to ignite and a nipple upgrade is a must.

    Leman cross plains rifle

    Arrived safely! A Doc White, in the white kit gun. I've already started by inletting the barrel channel larger and then proceeded to bed the tang and barrel for a nice weather resistant, sealed fit.

    GRRW North West Trade Gun - First timer

    I tried 3fg powder today. Results from 80 and 90gr charges. Ignition was dang near instant! I filed down the front sight about .005" today and hope that will put it at least dead on at 50 yards. I still need to try 60 and 70gr charges, but will need to run more balls in the shop.

    Can I use grease from cooking as patch lube?

    if bear grease goes rancid, you simply didnt render it correctly. Most bear lubes sold ( only a few available ) have so many other things added, that by the time you get the product, its no longer bear grease.

    Pounding tight balls down?

    Never have I ever found an accurate load with a loose fitting patched ball. If i can smack it a couple times with my short starter and then push it down the bore half a dozen times on a fouled bore, its a great hunting combo. The most accurate ml'er shooters at the big shoots, you will often...
