  4. From Anchorage: * Take the one day trip up to Cold Foot along the pipe line and then fly back over the Brooks Range.

  7. Beware ... the locking lugs on LC Smiths are not made to take the shucking punishment we put them through. I now have an LC that is a parts shotgun and it didn’t take long to brake the lug. And if you brake it, it is a custom custom repair and be prepared to spend big bucks

  14. Some additional history about DuPont and Moosic Plant... DuPont sold to Gerhart Owen in 1971 because they were cited under the Taft Hartley Act for restraint of trade. That didn’t stop them in the BP business though. They opened a a sales office in Lake Placid and were selling imported powder in the US labeled Meteor made by Noble Industries in Ardeer, Scotland through their CIL Canadian subsidiary. This Meteor powder was the same production mix or left over powder when Curtis’s & Harvey sold out to Noble in 1967. Might add C&H powder was rated the best BP powder made and I have a g

  17. Mark, they are the same configuration and quality rifles except for the butt plates. Pedersoli has a shotgun butt plate requiring a tighter grip to keep it on the shoulder. The Uberti has the hooked butt plate that provides easier control of the rifle at the shoulder, especially shooting off hand Both barrels are match grade and overall quality is equal So, my recommendation is the Uberti with a MVA Soule vernier and a MVA Beach Combination foresight Sporting Rifle Straight Stock .45-70 30″ Have had a Uberti Deluxe 38-55 with DST for a lon

    Soy Wax

    Paraffin wax is ... is a soft colorless solid derived from petroleum, coal or oil shale that consists of a mixture of hydrocarbon molecules containing between twenty and forty carbon atoms. * In chemistry, paraffin is used synonymously with alkane, indicating hydrocarbons with the general formula CnH2n+2. A good hydrocarbon chain ingredient supports an excellent lube for black powder reloads * Paraffin wax initially suffered from a low melting point; however, this shortcoming was later remedied by the addition of harder stearic acid, another excellent ingredient for BP lubes

    Soy Wax

    Make Do, personally, would use canning paraffin which is an alkine with a melting temperature of 154 degrees vs soy wax that is more expensive that starts to melt at 120 degrees You also might want to consider using hot glue if you don’t have any over shot wads

  25. Let’s say these are categories for different types of rifles and different distances. Period correct iron sights are required for all rifles. SASS pistol caliber rifles are shot at 100, 150, and 200 yards. Big Bore Lever Action rifles are shot at 200, 300, and 400 yards. Big Bore Single Shot (BBSS) and Buffalo (black powder) rifles are shot at 300.400 and 500 yards. There a two different rifles tha have to be considered for ‘long range’ per the original post ...a lever and a single shot. Next are the distances ...200 to 500... For the lever, a Uberti 1886 Sporting Rifl
