    Lube or no lube?

    Seems I recall one of Doc White's articles recommending lubing the White sabots. But I have never seen a need to do so.

    In Stock Percussion Caps

    With the free shipping code, find at least $49 worth of other eligible stuff and they don't charge for regular shipping, just the hazmat which is $12. At least it worked for me. RWS 1075 Plus Percussion Caps #11 Box of 2500 (10 Cans of 250)

    Fed 209ML primer size

    209 Muzzleloading Primer Maybe these are just rebranded Federal Fusion primers? Either way, I was hoping someone could provide some dimensions.

    Fed 209ML primer size

    I looked through that thread before asking the question and maybe I overlooked it, but I don't see Federal 209MLs, just regular Fed 209s and 209As.

    Speer deepcurl 300 grain recommendations

    I have only shot the DC with a Harvester short black but had good accuracy out of a DISC rifle. I just ordered the 500 pack and some crush ribs to try. I may try the long blacks as well just for comparison but hoping for good results in the rifles with the crush rib.

    GOOD NEWS !!!!

    They didn't take Plaquenil, they took chloroquine phosphate, a fish tank cleaner. Of course the media implied it was DJT's fault.

    FOR SALE For any Bowhunters

    It's a great price for everything shipped. I am at a crossroads with shoulder and chronic tennis elbow issues trying to decide if I should keep trying to use a compound or get a blasted crossbow. What I shoot now is around 55# with a pretty smooth single cam. I imagine this one has a little...

    If it was a 50/60# I would have most likely had to get it from you.
