    1200?? Dang!! The PA conical has a concave base. I guess if I'm going for muzzle velocity, I'd have to get a chronograph. I thought about Track the Wolf for maybe shopping for a rifle that would give me some good accuracy out to 200-300.

    Yeah, I use the bench configuration to see what the rifle will do with me as eliminated as possible. I can't take that bench out in the weeds and hunt from that, I do use a trigger stick which is really handy. I have a fold out 3 legged stool, I set up next to a tree so I can lean on that, the...

    So they grouped a 3.1 inch group at 100 but I was very socked in for bench rest, it was very stable. The round ball was closer to 4 inch. I'd gotten previous advice to not put a patch behind this bullet. This rifle was left uncleaned and got rust in it. So I was worried it would ever shoot...

    I fired the Hornady 50 cal conicals out of my CVA Pennsylvania. They grouped OK at 100. Heavy round though. This rifle has a 1:66 twist I think. So I was surprised that they made a round hole in the paper. I was told to not load more than 80 grains of powder in that rifle. I bought it used so...

    So how fast of a twist do I need for conicals? Is 1:24 what I'd need for that? Here's is a stupid question, what does GPH stand for? M

    Wow, I like that. But he didn't speak much about the actual rifle. I'd have like to known his rifle twist and such. 45 cal seems like it would be easier to find. It looks to me, at the end of the video he was talking about those patched bullets being able to be bought. I don't have the means...

    I like the sound of that. Who makes something like that?

    Traditional and accurate

    I'm thinking my next rifle to be a traditional percussion rifle but I want it to shoot as accurately as possible. I typically only shoot to about 100 yards because I'm firing a .50 ball with I think a 1:68 twist. So I need some advice on that. I imagine a tighter rifling twist is going to get me...

    Which maker?

    I can't find any adjustable site models anyhow.

    Which maker?

    You think black powder would have less likely caused pitting? I have Pyrodex and stopped shooting it through my rifle because it seemed to take longer to clean out if I had done quite a bit of shooting for the day. Using black powder in my rifle it just seems to clean up easier. I figure the...

    Which maker?

    I thought I'd heard that Pietta's were mechanically better. My CVA Walker has a short arbor too. I need to fix that.

    Which maker?

    For out of the box shoot ability, if Uberti and Pietta are the only ones I can find available (wow the price has gone up on all these types!) What are some of the advantages and disadvantages of those two brands?

    Which maker?

    I've heard some like Pietta's more than Uberti's and vice versa. Whats the major differences between those two?

    I'm willing to buy one from you, will you throw in the cat? :)

    Which maker?

    I'm currently shopping for a cap and ball revolver that is stainless finish. I like the look and I know they're easier to clean. I'm hoping for 44 cal. and adjustable sites. I remember many years ago, seeing revolvers for sale that were even shinier looking than stainless. Were they once...

    Pietta Navy Revolver Cylinder

    Never tried that. I'm not sure my wife would want me to use her oven for that. Not sure if there would be fumes?
