Lots of stores only sell pyrodex. Not because its good but because of paperwork. Its a class C explosive. It works good in in-lines. It is OK in 45/70 if you drop tube the case full. I use it mostly for cannon fodder.
The cold makes "super condensation". Years ago, we went to a special hunt at Lake Jacomo. It was ten below and there was 2 foot of snow on the ground. People were having a terrible time with misfires. We had to meet at the office to check in a 6am and it was amazing the stuff other hunters were doing. They took their guns into the warm house at night.(bad ju-ju) They fired their shots off at dark and reloaded the next day without cleaning and plugged their flash channel. You could hear a "pop" out in the woods during the day. Profanity followed. I solved all my troubles by use a .45 Kentucky Flintlock.
I can cram a dozen 155s or DPs in a conibox so why mess with them? I use a few around the house but I don't travel with them. For rats, I like those conistands. Just wade along and stab them as you go.
I lived between 435 and 35 where they split . Just rented , My sister lives above missouri city out by the country club . Doug Warren had several flinters for sale at his place , no Hawkens though , He had a nice plains rifle in 58 a Yeager in 62 , and several others , I will get a list of them tommorow I am going back up to visit and get some more supplies . He is south of Holden on 131.
Willie had a nice rifle for sale when I saw him last . Guns seem to run from $100-$2000 .
Dangit Ray, You got me all mixed up. Dale Warren-Doug Warren.....Dale Warren has the James Country Merchantile Store in Liberty and sells all kinds of clothes and supplies and guns. I need to get up there and get a battle shirt.
I had an old H&R Huntsman in .45 caliber. Shoots like a demon. In high school, I used to shoot 5 gallon jugs full of water with a 450 grain maxi-ball. A real crowd pleaser. I found one in 12 gauge and I bought it just because I can.
We have another googler......Ask him a question and he will google it.......Nope Joe, don't need that. There are some that google everything and others that want you to google it for them. We need knowledge from experience and the great outdoors.
I had a revolver with a locked up cylinder. I soaked it in a bucket of kerosene for a year and nothing. I sprayed it down with Aero-Kroil and it came right apart. Now all my revolvers and all my cap nipples get "Napa Anti-sieze"
A friend had an old Alchemy book. It was loaded with old English terms like spirit of sulpher and liver of sulpher and oil of silver and mercury oil. Crazy. It was like a book a witch would have. Mineral oil is baby oil with no fragrance added. It was used by the US Army until WWI. Kroil is a super light oil used as a penetrater. It is capable of getting into crevices that are like 0.0001". Mostly used on getting old bolts loose. I make "Ed's Red". My recipe makes a gallon and I gave away bottles of it at Niangua a couple of years ago. Its a secret concoction used at military armories. Ed Harris (yes, THE Ed Harris) gave out the recipe years ago. *One Quart of Dextron ATF *One quart of kerosene *One quart of Mineral Spirits *One quart of Acetone. Mainly a bore solvent. Problem with soap is it isn't soap anymore. They removed all the phosphates which ruined its ability to clean. Ivory soap disappeared off the planet and now it is called Ivory lotion. I guess it cleans a little, you just need more of it. People on the frontier used "elbow grease" to clean things. They just scrubbed it until it shined.
Yeah, I bet you burn up a lot of grease all by yourself. I use simple household products to clean guns. I love to give them a wipe down with Hoppes. Reminds me of my childhood cleaning shotguns with my Dad. I have tubs of rendered coon fat that I use for bore lube. I got mutton tallow too but it smells.
It is a shame that a lot of old info is lost on this forum. 5 years ago, we posted coniboxs hot and heavy. Kim had those plastic mailboxs she was using. I had the tapered stackable boxes. With DPs so quick and easy a lot of interest was lost. Dale was of the opinion he could set a 155 on a traveled run so who needs a box. I got a few and set them up every year. I put them in a tree to discourage possums and cats. Some states back East require conis to be in boxes and so many feet off the ground. They catch martins that way too.
No.....You need a 7 1/2 to 8 " board for coon and a long skinny for fox and a long fat for yote etc. Get on FHA website for regulation sizes. Biggest drag is you need 1/2" thick soft wood you can push a tack into.
bverboy: yup.. joe told me so

farmnhunter: If you want to avoid feline, you can't use any meat or fish item or scent. Try a piece of black licorish covered by dairy feed, or lucky charms or corn/koolaid (mix 1 qt whole corn with a package of grape koolaid)
