Re: Used gun hunt

Probably because the good ones get snapped right up while the rough ones just sit there. Go back in 3 months and you’d probably see the same guns.
The advantage goes to the locals that drop in regularly to see what’s new.

Re: Traditons vs CVA

I’ve haven’t yet owned a CVA rifle but I have a number of them from Traditions, including 3 Pursuit XLT’s. They are far and away my favorite rifle to carry. We use 80 grains of BH209 and a 250 grain saboted bullet.

Re: Need some PRB advice.

We spent a couple hours at the range, the more we shot the better the patches looked and the better the Guns shot. By the end, this is what they looked like. Do they look okay?

Need some PRB advice.

Today was my first time shooting PRB’s. I went to the range with 3 .45 T/C’s, a Seneca and 2 Cherokees. My goal for today was to get them close to the bullseye at 50 yards and I accomplished that without any great difficulty. I was shooting a .440 ball w/ a pre lubed T/C pillow ticking patch and 50 ...

Re: Looking for opinions on cams

I don’t swap cards, I just use a card reader on my phone and save the pictures I want. I’ve got a half dozen WGI cameras, they are okay, but not great. I use them because they are cheap and my cameras are on public land and it’s not unusual to have one or two walk away each year.

I wish I had this tutorial back when I owned a WMC, instead I got frustrated, unloaded it and moved on. I may have to rethink my stance on them and pick up another one.

I use Lanes Tubes. They work great. I ordered different color lids so I can color code my different volume loads :)

Can you put a bullet in the tube with the powder?

I like the T/C 4-in-1 speed loaders. That’s all I carry plus a couple extra primers in my pockets.

Re: Using brass to measure powder.

Wouldn’t it have to be something like a .45-90 or a .50-90?
Actually, I think I’d start with a .45-100 or 110, put 90 grains in it, mark it and cut it down to the perfect size.

I wouldn’t consider 70 grains by weight with a 300 grain bullet a light load. I use 80 grains by volume w/250’s.

Re: .45 cal....180 or 200 grain?

I’ve been shooting the 195 grain Barnes bullets in my .45 in-lines, mostly with 90 grains of Pyrodex. I’m sure there are probably cheaper bullet options then the Barnes bullets though.

Re: TC Black Diamond

I don’t have a .50, but I’ve got a .45 Black Diamond. Mine is very accurate and it’s got an excellent trigger. I shoot loose Pyrodex because I don’t care for 777 and BH209 isn’t an option. With a scope on them access to the breech isn’t great and they are more difficult to clean than break-open guns...

Re: .36 Cal TC Seneca

Thanks for the heads up! I think I’ll try and get that. I still want a .36 Seneca though! I prefer the Seneca stock to the Cherokee and Seneca Barrels are longer and I think it makes them look better. Don’t get me wrong, I like them both.

Re: .36 Cal TC Seneca

the problem now, is that snails for the cherokee/seneca are no longer available anywhere, so even to rebarrel one, you would need a donor for parts.

I bought a new, unfired .32 Cherokee barrel and then bought a very nice stock with all the hardware and wound up with the complete rifle for less than $400. Maybe not a steal, but I’m happy to have it.

To me, in the second picture it looks like a joint in the mold when they cast it. I’m a little surprised that they wouldn’t grind it away before finishing the receiver.
