    Paul Fieret Kibler Southern Mountain Rifle Build

    Unfortunately I don’t have pictures though I would imagine they reside on this forum. He builds Kibler kits to stay busy and does a nice job and charged a very fair price. I will try to find the original post and enter it here

I was like good grief then I went and look at the SMR I bought from a guy off the forum and thinking just thinking if I should try it Rifle shoot s a little left about 4 or 5 inches at 60 yards.

    You have to put things in perspective Ace and some of these other big box stores are geared towards the homeowner. HomeDepot and loews have graduated to supporting contractors so they have more options. I shop at both And McMasters for the good stuff

    #32 drill bit

    I’m okay with a cheaper drill meaning high speed steel vice colbalt but for metal drilling I highly recommend 135 degree split point vice a steeper angle drill on the metals used on muzzle loaders. 32 is a smidge under an 1/8 Be careful when you log into the McMaster $ Carr website you might...

    Rifles and smooth bores of high quality cost big bucks. As an example a Kibler Smr is $1200 dollars Unassembled.
