that target has BRAGGING RITES!!Cleaned the 1864 Burnside Carbine I shot this group with yesterday. I know it’s not the tack driver you guys are accustomed to seeing but it’s taken me many rounds to get this far with this 157 year old rifle. 50 yards off a bench. Aimpoint is the orange dot below the group. 24 shots. Not even a muzzle loader but a Civil War breech loader. Then I prepared 35 more rounds using a slightly different powder charge to have another go tomorrow. Cast 80 of the ..562 round balls being shot from a batch of lead received from forum member Justin. View attachment 94118
Nope. #11 fit nice and tight. I use a short piece of wood rod to press them in place after capping.no pinching necessary to keep them on after the first shop?
Thanks. I had a momentary brain fart but recovered and "ducked" them. They seem to have what I want. Getting the plastic out to order some.
remember that if they go on UBER HARD they will come off after shooting them the same!Nope. #11 fit nice and tight. I use a short piece of wood rod to press them in place after capping.
I have been told that you can get a #10 on them, but they are super tight and have a spread. I have not tried that - I just use my CCI #11.
made a new ramrod for my 36 underhammer. wasnt happy with threads i did on 1 end. perfect nowSince the previous thread was shut down (locked) by our new moderator, I thought I would start one up again, as per the suggestion.
So, let's get this thread going again, and share your muzzleloading related adventures of the day!
The SLIX nipples have the cross drill nipple that uses the backpressure to shake them loose.remember that if they go on UBER HARD they will come off after shooting them the same!
