Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Crisco is not the best choice BTW.
After about the third round the temperature of the cylinder melts the rest resulting in the other charges going wherever.
Old timers just load the cylinder up, take it out of the frame and melt candle wax into the cavities, return the cylinder, turn it to trim off excess wax if there is any and then cap her up...all ready to shoot...and the conical projectiles work best if you put them in point first; we used to call them "boat tailed wad cutters" and they were actually more accurate that way. (and you can melt wax over the nipples after its all capped up and loaded to keep the 'weather' out of the load.

Yep! And an extra cylinder for the speed load.
Also used a round buckshot ball or two but damned if I recall at the moment.

Ramblings from long ago.
I still keep the bp rifles around.
A Hawken style and a long rifle.
They're just plain fun the grandkids love to shoot.
Anything to get them into the shooting sports is a great thing.

And the ole Marlin 25.

I do love the old puzzle loading screw shooters...especially those with a rock lock; they give me a sense of comfort. For years I have given friends, relatives, kids & grandkids firearms of one sort or another...that too gives me a sense of comfort as well.

The click sound from cocking an old BP firearm.
And the scent of the powder burning.
Merica!

Made my own powder also.
Being a retired printer I had access to the linotype lead.
One of the things laying around is an old Crisco plate in reverse.
I went into printing during the switch over. Lead was scrapped for pennies.
Learning to read backwards required skill....

You should be ashamed of yourself. Even a bear deserves better than that.

Ain't never counted Coup on a bear like 4th but I can attest to the fact that a 444 Marlin at 2 yards will stop a charging bear in its tracks. When he collapsed I reached out with the barrel and poked him to make sure he didn't need a second. Bullet entered the neck and severed the spinal column and broke both shoulders

You poked the bear??
Good choice with the 444 Marlin.
Had one in 44 mag. Let the son borrow it and Dad's Winchester 94 30-30.
These days I'm stuck with an AR in 7.62X39 and a SKS.
The HORROR.

No.
The story would read "Bear Survives Getting Punched In The Schnozola By Pissed Off Resident" or something like that...

I use some kind of BP substitute in the 44 mag revolver just scoop it up and load.
You measure by volume. The volume works out like a medium charge of 2400.
It is slightly compressed by the 300gr hard cast bullet.
Oh yeah,it's Trail Boss powder. Good stuff.
The scoop is a cut case for the volume amount.
