Except for some touchups and polishing my .45 SMR is fully assembled and ready to shoot. I’m pleased overall but I started getting a little sloppy towards the end. Namely, while careful to chase the pin holes to get ride of sawdust and oil, I missed the middle barrel lug hole and blew out a piece of maple tapping the pin through. No excuse for it. Was able to patch it but I know it’s there. Anyway live and learn. I’ve been posting the build process every few days on the “What Muzzleloading Stuff did you do today” thread. Figured we already had enough separate SMR build threads.
