    Problem with Pyrodex pistol pellets

    Sound advice. I had nothing but problems when I tried pellets in my cap and ball revolvers. Stick with traditional black powder and you'll wonder why you ever tried pellets in the first place.

    FOR SALE Something a little different

    His work is excellent! I bought one of his larger knives after a friend recommended him and I have no regrets at all.

    TOW powder horn

    I have one horn that has a filling port in the plug, the other 4 have a fixed finial. Powder Horns & More have some with that option but I picked up several otoscope cones several years ago and they work 👍. Good advice; In my last annual Medicare exam, I was seen by a young resident who kindly...

    500 Yards, Stock 1:48 Twist TC Renegade .50 Cal

    Beginners luck, that's all. Strictly unrepeatable and photoshopped all the way too! I notice that there are no affidavits or sworn depositions included on the video either so I'm calling BS. 🤯 Gotta go, the men in the white jackets are here to give me my meds. Mind blown btw! It is a neat sound...

    Jacks Battle Powder accuracy

    It may be made by Goex but it is certainly not the equivalent. I tried it then traded what I had left for Goex.

    .54 Colonial in Cherry off the bench

    I'll second that. It seems to me that cherry is gaining in popularity over the past few years.

    1" groups at 25 yards, 10" at 50 yards?

    Excellent advice!

    Out of retirement help

    When I first started out shooting muzzleloaders I tried them too. I had to learn the hard way that when using a substitute powder that burns hotter than traditional black, plastic skirted projectiles tend to become one with the bore and render cleaning an exercise in futility. The other thing I...

    Out of retirement help

    The best powder to use is 3f traditional black powder. Then you won't have to use a musket cap to ignite the powder charge. Get a stainless steel nipple like the Spitfire or the bronze Treso nipple, #11 cap. Start with 50 grains of 3f; I like Goex. Put your target at 40-50 yards so you can...

    New BP shooter here

    Welcome from South Texas! I'm always glad to see new folks getting into BP shooting and I think that we (BP users, muzzleloader shooters) should try to replace ourselves.

    Triple 7 ignition problems

    Early on I used T7 and experienced the same problems as you have had. Even went to a 209 primer set-up. T7 was the only powder that gave me a very painful hangfire as well. Here is my advice, free of charge. Your mileage may vary. First, get real black powder. I use Goex and I order it. It's...

    Loads in a original rem 1858

    After competing in the SASS for around 10 years using both CF and '58 Remington revolvers, I got the best accuracy using 23 grains of 3f Goex under a fiber wad and round ball. The fiber wad took up space, preventing an air gap as well as sealing against chain fire. Now, our targets were no more...
