Went to where I normally get pillow tic for the muzzy only to find out they no longer carry 100% cotton tic.Went to another very old local store that is stacked with SOOO much fabric you can hardly walk.Here they had more options than I could dream of.Must have had 9 types.Only measured a few.
Red stripe in .010 AND .020
Black stripe in .018
Blue in .017-.018
Brown I didn't measure
Green stripe in .015
all in 100% cotton!
I'M STOCKED UP!
The answers to all of life's questions are found in the Bible!
Hunters have to realize that it is a non-gun fabric center with great material for use in muzzleloading hunting.
Usually got my patching material and cleaning cloths from a fabric center, especially when the local gun shops didn't carry much in the flintlock line.
Once found some foam material from a fabric center that proved great for the seat/backing of an old tree stand, that incidentially made the tree stand better than the original.
Found a lot of things for the stand and stuff for archery in a hardware store. Found plumbing rubber washers worked in archery. Found oil for diy muzzleloading cleaning "moosemilk" in an automotive shop. Found that a mixture of petroleum jelly and vegetable shortening from Walmart worked "greasing" up the muzzleloading patches and "greasing" up leather boots. Foam sheeting in a hardware big box store to make archery targets for twenty years.
Pipe insulators to use on a tree stand.
Found a lot of stuff not made just for hunting. Adapt and adapt is my by word.
I've been using denim for patching. Works great, fired patches look almost good enough to re-use!
For cleaning patches, my wife looks for flannel bed sheets at yard sales. I have to cut them to size, but they wsork well also.
