  1. You will be a little over 3 hours away from the Long Riders in Shortsville NY
  2. WE also shot muskets and used Crisco for lube on the mini balls. Well one time a team member's glove stated to smother from the heat of the barrel of the Henry., I guess the glove had too much embedded Crisco. He took the glove off really fast and was lucky he did not burned. Nawlins
  3. I shot a Henry for years in N-SSA competition for years,and we loaded up the magazine all the way. Never had a problem by holding it like John Boy stated . The only thing is had to wear a glove because the barrel gets really hot with BP loads. Nawlins
  4. New for this year the WB mini match will be shot first on side match day. After WB than the three stage squall mini match and the plainsman three stage mini match will be shot. So we are giving a shooter a chance to shoot all three. Nawlins
  5. Howdy kR, First thing LPL told to make sure that I to say hi to Bess from the both of us. We are looking forward to seeing you and Bess. Not this year for a military class. We could talk about it when we meet. Nawlins
  6. Howdy, This year we are having a five stage Wild Bunch mini match. Also Loco Poco Lobo will also be teaching a Wild Bunch RO class. Check out the web site for more details. Hope to see you there. Nawlins
  7. Howdy, I shot an original Smith Carbine ( breach loader) and never had a leading problem. Finding a good lube for your guns will help in performance. Nawlins
  8. I use a Lee hardness tester. It is not high tech but it gives a general idea what the harness is. I normally shoot smokeless but have cast thousands of civil war musket and carbine bullets in the 25 yrs that I shot in N-SSA . Using two hundred pounds of soft lead a year was not uncommon especially when your better half also shoots. You never had to worry about bullet hardness. I have been casting bullets for my 1879 Trapdoor since the mid eighties with a hardness of about 10 and shooting BP and was using the lead for the S&W. I 'm going to try to cast a softer bullet for the S&
  9. Thanks for the replies. Last year I purchased a 1878 Smith & Wesson model 3 in 44 Russian. I'm using a 200 gr bullet ( with a # 10 hardness) with 3F BP. The bore is in good shape considering it's age. At 10 yds it has a decent group size. I would like to try to tighten it a little . I shoot CC and in one match last year I used the Smith and my repro Schofield. What a hoot shooting DD with both revolvers, was not fast and the TO did not have to use a hour glass for timing. Nawlins
  10. This is a BP pistol caliber bullet survey on hardness. What type of hardness is preferred? Hard cast ( Brinell hardness ) or soft cast? Nawlins Kid
