    proper way to tie a sash

    Comfort is going to be paramount here. A wider the sash, will be more comfortable. A narrow sash is going to squeeze, and may have a tendency to roll a bit. My sash is about 4¼" X 10' plus fringe.

    Joe Woods Coning Tool

    I coned the muzzle of my rifle many years ago using one of Joe Woods' tools. Best money I ever spent. And I'm happy not to keep beating up my hand on that bloody short starter.

    New Ball Mold

    I'm not certain that that's accurate. My bank statement didn't separate out shipping from the mold's price. The actual price was £34. GBP plus shipping which came out to $70.79 US Google informs me that £34.00 = $46.74 US. So we can deduce that shipping was $24.05.

    New Ball Mold

    $70.79 US. Supply your own handles, if you don't have any. Track of the Wolf has Lee double cavity handles available. They fit.

    What Size Punch For 50 Cal Powder Wads

    Half inch will do. Five eighths would be a bit large, fine for a 20 ga., however.

    .36 Caliber Kibler Ball Diameter

    Best thing to do is read again the upper posts, and experiment with ball size and patch thickness. Plan on spending quite a few week ends out at the shooting range. Enjoy the ride.

    The Superstition Of Gifting A Knife, Is It Real?

    I have to admit, this is the first time I've ever heard of such a thing. Rather a nice custom, really.

    New Ball Mold

    I sprung for a Tanner ball mold .610" dia. It arrived 28 June. The mold handles arrived today, which I ordered from Track of the Wolf. I set about casting up a few balls. And I am pleased with the mold. It's a good thing I didn't compensate for shrinkage when I ordered the mold. I selected two...

    FLINTS

    Well....you're in luck. They last forever. You don't even need to keep 'em dry. Now as to how many shots you'll get from a flint, it's variable. You might get one, which is rare. Or, you might get upwards of one hundred, with judicious knapping.

    Do you need a persona?

    Nah....don't worry about it. Years ago, I used to volunteer at a frontier fort. I had a whole story worked out, and never used it. But that was for a museum. If you're just shooting at the club's range, plinking out in the back forty, or out on a Saturday for some squirrels, it isn't...
