That's what I'm looking for. We do similar type shoots with airguns and smaller targets. Ranges are normally 10-55 yards. Animal silhouettes that fall when hit in the kill zone. I was going to set up a Woods Walk with airguns to mimic the ML matches.
Question, all the distances are...
Thanks for the input gentleman.
One thing I was considering and hasn’t come up yet is the twist rate difference for PRB. If I remember correctly, the 45 is 1/66 and the 40 is 1/48.
I’ve heard that the 40 is a wonderfully accurate rifle. But wouldn’t it be limited in charge capacity for PRB...
Actually, I’m almost 100% decided on the SMR, but which caliber. Primarily I’ll be using it for competitions but will hunt too. I hear the .40 is good. It’s the smallest caliber you can deer hunt with here in Alabama. Thanks for the help
Looking at the Pedersoli Jäger Target but I don't know a lot about them or even what is out there. My shooting will be limited to 100 yards and the rifle could be used to hunt with as well. It's my understanding that the Pedersoli Jäger can be swapped between flint and percussion by changing...
I have a couple of percussion rifles. A .36 Thompson I bought and a .50 CVA 1/66 twist that was given to me by a friend. Both shoot well. But I'm looking for a fast twist rifle that will better handle bullets, conicals and/or Minie Balls. I'd like to do some longer range shooting. I feel...
I've read that small pistol primers can be used with plastic tubing.

So, anyone doing any of these things?
So I just bought a .50 TC Hawken and the very next weekend another friend brought a TC Seneca in .36 that I feel in love with. I'm selling the .50 as I really didn't have the cash for both and I like the smaller Seneca.
Question, where can a get a drop in barrel for the Seneca. I'd like one...
So I happened into a little Seneca in .36, unfired. It's a nifty little rifle. I'm looking for options to feed it. I believe it has a 1/48 twist. What is the normal projectile diameter, .375"? Anyone have any pet loads? Thanks!
