  1. Thanks great video maybe other manufacturers should watch and listen about standardizing parts and making them readily available .

    IMO this tells me it's time to get new spotters. If spotters say no misses and then all change their minds tells me that were not paying attention. As a TO I would ask each one what target was not hit. Nawlins
  3. Pyrotechnic effects may look cool but is it worth causing problems. Like possibly starting a fire (that water may not be able to put out), blow back that could burn someone or their clothes? Lastly adding a substance to BP with a different “burn rate” that overtime could possibly cause fatigue of the gun parts. IMO someone that could get hurt with a gun coming apart because of “pyrotechnic effects” is not worth it. 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&W just to see what happens . Hitting large targets is fun but shooting small groups with a revolver that is 138 yrs old is lot more fun. Nawlins
  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.

  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
