Re: climate change morons

Of course, you will have to use maple leaves that have died from natural causes. You can replenish your stock every fall and have several colors. But they age and dry out, and get crumbly. But have no fear. Someone will brew up a preservative to make those maple leaves soft and pliable year round. T...

Re: New Purchase - Rusted Barrel

The above load works well for me, although I add a couple of tenths of 3031. IIRC, it is a Phil Sharpe load from the 1930s, only he used the then-common M1 ball bullets for the .30-06. It is also, scaled down for case volume, the 3031 equivalent of the .30-06 International Match load using HiVel #2.

The Krag is much more fun. Have you thought of having cases made from solid brass rod stock, such as the RMC company m...

Paper bullet blanks

This is a post about ammunition, but about the manufacture of paper bullet blanks. I thought it belonged here.

What keeps the E.C. Blank powder inside the paper bullet? And I thought E.C. Blank powder was pink.
