Re: No 9 lead shot usefulness Parabola 08/05/21 10:51 AM
I had a similar experience with a friend’s dog when I shot a young rabbit too far back with a .22 Hornet.

The dog, a 3/4 Labrador 1/4 Collie, was usually very efficient but my friend’s puzzlement he seem to be spending quite a while fiddling around.

He eventually came back with a disgusted look on his face preceded by a fan of rabbit legs that he was gingerly holding by the paws with the sticky bits as far as possible from his muzzle!

Re: Cracked stock? damascus 08/05/21 09:38 AM
That looks like the stock makers nightmare an internal stock blank crack. This sort of problem could be hidden by a craft stock maker because he would have sufficient matching wood he had removed during the basic shaping to patch it. Like a lot of production today the use of duplicators for producing the stocks basic shape with wood removed that is a little better than sawdust so no chance of a good patch repair. It looks like the crack has been filled with an epoxy filler and leveled down before it was truly hard, Oh! the benefits of mass production and poor quality control, and a machine minder's ham fisted attempt to make things better.

Re: Gun Fit Measurements Mark II 08/05/21 02:10 AM
One thing very few people figure in is the shape of the comb. The measurements seldom account for drop at face, and the comb profile is never quantified. A consistent gun mount must be developed before any fitting numbers are meaningful. As mentioned the mechanical influence of bore and choke being concentric, convergence of patterns on target. As Brister said art and science.

Re: Francotte Exposed Hammer Shotgun Information Drew Hause 08/04/21 09:28 PM
It would be an enormous help if Bob Beach would look in.
His Francotte tutorial is here

I don't know when Auguste Francotte & Cie began marketing Francotte Arms guns, but here is a thread with a 1961 gun

The lettre annale is a lower case theta for 1953.

Here is another Francotte Arms

P1K379.5 is the barrel weight at the time of proof = 3.041#. If the barrels now weight > 3% less (from honing) the gun is considered to be out of proof.

The original bore was 16.9 mm = .665"
R barrel constriction is 16.7 = .657" = .008" choke = Improved Cylinder
L barrel constriction is 16.4 = .646" = .019" = Modified

It has 65mm = 2 1/2" chambers

Siemens Martin steel is a quality product

Re: Did S-man checker this '03 NRA sporter? DanLH 08/04/21 03:29 AM
I got it from Tempe, AZ. But my first S-man rifle that I got at Tulsa came from CA but the story that went with it was a widow in CA was selling and she said her husband had bought it at Paul Jaegers in PA. So these guns do get around the country.

Re: Advice on where to seek a first drilling Der Ami 08/03/21 11:01 PM
I think you made a good, well reasoned, choice. I started using a 7x57R in 1971 and have never regretted the choice. You stated you can reload the 7x57R with standard 7x57 dies, but with the correct shell holder. That is how I always loaded for mine. As I was loading 30-40 Krag, at the time, I opened up the 30-40 shell holder with a Dremel tool and used it. The correct shell holder won't be hard to find now. I had the best results with bullets 160- 173 grains and fairly slow powder( 4831). Newer powders may be better than 4831. When I started, I had to sort Berdan primed cases from Boxer primed ones, but you will likely only encounter Boxer primed ones. The American primers and bullets are proper so you will have no problems. Also, you will find the 6x42 scope is excellent in low light, I have a 6x42 Hensoldt on my favorite drilling and have complete confidence in it. Good luck, I hope you take a deer with it this year.

Re: 2021 Dove Season countdown timer PawleysJim 08/03/21 04:04 PM
We planted 3 fields in corn, sunflower, wheat & rice...almost didn't get anything in. Early season plantings had good rain, but we had to wait through a 2 month drought and got the sunflowers in 80 days before our opener Sept. 4th.
Hope that our sunflowers are the 70 day variety... we have had decent rain since and are looking forward to a great season, well a better season than last year...setting a low bar with that! Last year suxed!!

BTW, early season I'll be shooting my Janssen & Son 20 ga. and later in the season A 2.5' 16 LC Smith field.

Re: Ithaca SKB 100 20ga 28" SxS, 3", SST, 5lb14oz L. Brown 08/03/21 09:47 AM
Good price for one of those. Quite a few grouse and woodcock hunters like the same gun with 25" barrels. Even lighter. But I've owned both, and the 28" version worked better for me. Seemed less whippy. But you either need to shoot spreaders or have the chokes opened for grouse and woodcock.

Re: A fact about AA 5744 DanLH 08/03/21 03:36 AM
I'm a long time member and competitor in cast bullet matches and 5744 has been a very popular powder, especially in the military rifle matches and many records have been set using it. The original surplus 5744 was really good and it was cheap when it came out. Some of the new made lots may not be quite so great.

Re: London muzzleloader proof marks Parabola 08/02/21 08:16 PM
From the positioning of the 09 or 60 marks close to the witness marks aligning the barrels and breech plugs my guess is that they are assembly numbers to make sure the right plugs were threaded into the correct barrels.

The B over 10 might be a local colonial (or Irish) registration mark.

They are not part of the Proof marks.
