I worked in a garage in my teens and early 20's. We used gas to clean parts and it really cut
grease but that was leaded gas. Todays gas is good but not as good as the old stuff. We even
ran it throug...

It is not a Civil War rifle per se. That's not to say it wasn't or couldn't have been used as
many carried their own firearms at the beginning, mainly Southern troops however most of those

....more affluent times?.....I hate hand loading ammo....the high cost of the Weatherby ammo is

I have a Weatherby Mark V in .257 WM but I haven't hunted with it in years. Now when I hunt

Posted in thread: Inline vs traditional. Why the pissing match? on 11-02-2014 at 12:36 PM
All muzzle loaders whether its an inline or not are 100yard max guns.That depends on how well
you know your gun and how much time you spend working up loads.
Posted in thread: Inline vs traditional. Why the pissing match? on 11-02-2014 at 12:42 AM
I don't like inlines because there's nothing historical about them and most people that use
