    I am so amazed at the muzzleloaders on this forum. It's what got me hooked. I wish they had a category for showing them off. Maybe now is the time to post some pictures. I have seen NO 2 alike, real beauties.

    FOR SALE lyman great plains hawkens,

    Not made by Pedersoli but is in 54 caliber. Not the hunter model. Never assembled still in the box. If I post it would there be a interest in buying it on this forum for the right price? If it has been fired it was from the factory. It;s a later model. Thanks

    break in?

    When one gets a new muzzleloader is there a need to shoot so many shots before the barrel is broke in? The same question for a barrel that has been realigned like from Bobby Hoyt? Thanks

    Does one have to use the octagonal shaped conicals in the Euro arms Whitworth for it to be real accurate? 451 caliber. Or can one use regular conicals of the same weight to be as accurate. I am thinking of getting one for long range shooting and want it to be as accurate as possible. Would...

    acraglass and crack

    Someone had a post on fixing a crack in a stock using acraglass from Brownells. It works very well if the acraglass is heated with a (paint stripper) heat gun. It doesn't take long to heat the acraglass, it will turn to a water consistency. Then pour it into the crack. Dont clamp it too hard...

    acra glass.

    I just thought I would post this. Someone on this forum stated they are always worried about Acra glass sticking to the metal after bedding. It's not uncommon for people to ask me "what do I do if when I am bedding something with acra glass and the metal sticks to the wood)? First off I use a...

    long range

    I have a Lyman gpr 1-32 twist 50 caliber percussion. If I was wanting to shoot at targets 4 to 500 yards away what rear or tang sight should I get? And yes, front sight? Idaho Ron was great enough to help me pick a load already as to what to start out with.

    pedersoli great plains

    I am wanting to buy my first flintlock. I am a stock maker. Would I regret buying and assembling a pedersoli great plains flintlock kit? I just don't know the pros and cons to doing this. I don't mind doing the metal prep and bluing. I plan on turning a new stock and putting it (black walnut)...
