    who all likes the carbines?

    I shot N-SSA for twelve years. Very competitive with the 2-band Parker Hale Enfield and Remington 1858. But a recent review of my medals shows that I Won more medals with my Parker Hale Enfield Muskettoon than any other gun I shot. The short barrel was no handicap over the 2-bander.

    What I do during "Lockdown".

    Nice work. I am casting round balls every day; with my two shooting groups on stand-down for the duration, I am using the time to "stock up" on balls, cutting patches, and organizing my shooting boxes. With a .32, .36, .40, .45, three .50's, two .54's, a .58 and three .62's, I can cast all I...

    Does anyone harvest and knapp their own flint?

    Rich: Your "white" gun flints were a great treasure. I still have my last few. They were as "sparky" as any one else's. Your services are missed. ADK Bigfoot

    Casting round balls, thermometer needed?

    In years of casting 5,000 hollow based conicals (minies), I found that the lead temperature has some variable and still casts well; the temperature of the MOLD is critical. Pinholes, voids, and uneven bases were more related to the MOLD temperature than the alloy (pure lead) temperature. Keep...
