Re: Inline scope options

Check out Cabelas blackpowder scopes. I have a Cabelas 3X10X40 on a CVA Accura V2. Good scope for the money.

Re: muzzy storage

Storing in a silicone gun sack will help prevent rust. Storing in a carry case is risky, as it holds moisture, and can promote rust. IMHO

Re: swiss powder

To me black powder is what it is. I shoot both Goex, and Swiss. I shoot a PRB in my percussion sidelocks, and flinters. Swabbing is not an issue, as the lubed patch softens,and cleans the fouling as...

Re: American Pioneer Powder

Used this powder years ago, and will never use it again. It is affected by humidity, and degrades over a short time. Will clump in can, and is definitely less powerful than equal (volume) black...

Re: Lyman Peep sights info

Williams sights has screw in apertures of different hole sizes that screw right in, in place of the factory Lyman aperture. I use them on my Lyman Deerstalker with it's Lyman 57SML rear sight.

Re: LHR Redemption

I just picked one up also. (Camo) I have topped it off with a Nikon Pro Hunter 3X9X40. What are you using for a load, and which stock did you get? I will be trying mine out this weekend.

Re: Charles Daly Hawken .50 Caliber (1840 Repro) Value

I agree, that looks like an Investarm Hawken, imported from Italy. Charles Daley does not manufacture firearms, but imports them.

Re: Sights for an inline

You will also have to select the sights that have the proper height. You just can't install any sight. They have to be the correct height for your rifle. Your gunsmith should know which to select.

Re: What happened to my Deerstalker?

Are you shooting Hornady PA Conicals? If so, I believe they are for a twist rate of 1-66", or slower. Your Deerstalker is a 1-48" twist, or a 1-32" depending on which barrel you have.

Re: Need help with T/C hawkin 50 cal

I would not use FFF with a conical, use FFG, 70 to 100 grains. With a patched round ball (.490) however, FFFG is fine. 70 to 90 grains. The reason is pressure, and recoil. Much more pressure with a...

Call T/C and they should send you out another one. This happened to one of my Encores also. Very easy to replace. Just remove the small screw on the side of the barrel lug, and the extractor slides...
