Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: BORE SCOPES

My brother had a $700 Hawkeye set ... his pictures from the $15 are about the same. I like the 2-meter long LED one I got, as some of my smoothies wear 60” barrels. I load it onto a dedicated old Google tablet w/7” display - works slick! And with instant photo capture - what you see, is what you get .

Re: BORE SCOPES

FWIW, those ~$15 bore scopes work slick! My twin brother took these pictures of the bore of his 45-70 Trapdoor using one of those LED 5.5mm endoscopes that are sold on the likes of eBay and Amazon. They come with a 5' or longer cable that plugs into the USB port of your computer or laptop. There is...

Re: BLACK POWDER

Ehhhhhhh, gems of some good thoughts there, mainly about making your own powdah, but frankly I don’t buy the arguement that the BP of today is any less ‘potent’. My results sure don’t show that ... Have been shooting BP cartridge guns and muzzleloaders for 40+ years ... and loads proven then hit to ...

Slug the barrel. I find it easy to load for and like the 200-grain or better cast bullets. Brass is also easier to find now, than it was in the past.

Re: M-59/66A1 SKS...

I hear you ... nice pickup!

Just bought a Navy Arms (made by Zoli) Zouave black powdah rifled musket for $175 and the lock inside and under the barrel was COVERED w/ cosmoline.

I had to laugh ... 1st time I’ve seen that! Then again, the lock dates to 1960 and overall the condition is mint!

Re: You have to love politicians

Politician = One who engages in ‘politics’

Politics = Entymologist credit origin of this word as derived from the early Greek word ‘poly’ - for many and from ‘ticks’ - as meaning a blood sucking parasite.

Thusly, many blood sucking bazztards they are!
