  1. The part I'm looking for is a cylinder latch spring for the Ruger Old Army revolver. I've checked dang near every website. If anyone has a lead on parts like that, I'd appreciate it

    Cornmeal black powder filler

    Everything I've read has said 20 grains FFF. I have a hard time getting consistent ignition so I bet I need to figure out the filler. Thanks for the info everyone!

    Cornmeal black powder filler

    Sorry I wasn't specific but I'm not loading shells, it's a Ruger Old Army so I'm loading it right in the cylinder. Does the same principle apply? Thanks for the help
  4. Thanks man. That first one has a lot good stuff. I appreciate it
  5. I keep hearing people referencing cornmeal filler in their black powder revolver loads... What is the purpose of applying a filler?
  6. Any reliable sources for rigger old Army parts? Been a little difficult to find certain parts

    Reloading, bullets, powder, brass for sale.

    Was there a price on the 4831?

    30-06 load

    Thank you sir. I think I already have everything for that so I'll give it a shot... No pun intended haha

    30-06 load

    Thank you all for the info. I'll see what I can figure out. Yeah I was having excellent groups at 100 yards just on my bipods but I would like a little more confidence further out. Thanks again

    30-06 load

    Has anyone found a ridiculously efficient 30-06 load that groups well up to 400 yds (realistically I feel that a quarter of a mile is the furthest I want to shoot while hunting). I loaded 180gr Sierra spitzers with 55 grains of imr 4831. On a lead sled at 200 yds we had a decent group but at three hundred we we're all over the place. I've heard I should have started at 165 but I would appreciate any input. Thanks in advance and happy hunting!

    Rangefinder and Boots FS

    I may want that rangefinder. How far does it read accurately?
