Very strange reply indeed!

I read your prior post and you made a declarative statement concerning BP vs SP, I saw no question at all and certainly no specific question aimed at me for an explanation....if I missed it please point it out!

As far as what I think people know about me, I would assume that it is very little.

If you would like me to explain my BP knowledge, it is virtually non existent! I will say now and for the record that I have never fired BP, ONLY BP Subs...including the first BP sub....smokeless powder!

I have built several smokeless muzzleloaders in 3 different calibers.
I rarely ever use commercially bought sabots and prefer to either shoot sabotless with modern jacketed bullets or to shoot rifle bullets in sabots that I make myself.

These are my 45 caliber sabots with 150 grain .308 Nosler Accubond bullets:



and here is a cutaway view with a 250 grain .338 Accubond :



These sabots are machine rifled to fit my barrel.

Now as far as Rosie is concerned, your personalities would appear to well suited

edge.

Re: The ULTIMATE MUZZLE-LOADER!

Do you have an Ultimate Muzzleloader? Looks amazing on the web site. I spent less than that on most of the cars I've owned.

Re: The ULTIMATE MUZZLE-LOADER!

I don't drink beer, whiskey or smoke cigs, don't fish or take expensive trips to Canada hunting! I hunt on local land and shoot rifles!! I started investing my $$$$ in rifles and loading equipment in 1948, worked my arse off for 40 years flying ag planes and didn't spend everything I made....much like the 'younger set' does today! As for the cost of the Ultimate Rifle....I learned a long time ago that every time I tried buying cheap....it wound up costing me double...so I learned to pick what I configured as QUALITY and buy once!

That pretty much ought to clear your question up!

Re: The ULTIMATE MUZZLE-LOADER!

Good habits Sharpsman, except maybe for the not fishing. Although it would save me a lot of money if I didn't. I've lived cheaply most of my life and was able to retire early. I will pay top dollar for quality, but I have to be convinced I'm getting what I pay for, because I can't afford to do it all the time. Too often, you don't get what you pay for. That's why I asked about whether you had an Ultimate. I've surfed a lot of forums over the years and it is amazing how many people have opinions about things that aren't even on the market yet. One reason I belong to this forum; you can feel the experience.

I'm impressed with the sabots, can I buy some? I've toyed with shooting .358 bullets in the Precision Rifle duplex sabots, but didn't get good accuracy with the bullet I used. I purchased a partial box just to see if they'd fit. They fit down the barrel fine, but I wondered if they stabilized correctly with the 1:28 twist. The 195 grain .357 bullets shoot fine.

Re: The ULTIMATE MUZZLE-LOADER!

sharpsman I have to say you missed the boat on never fishing. In my honesty I nearly gave up hunting because fishing can be catch and release or catch and eat . I wouldnt reallly give up hunting but I hope you give fishing a try.I know what you tried to say with the expensive gun and 2 each his own I have a knight wolverine and it shoots good so why change. Like you said you like to buy higher end items and knothing wrong with that. I make custom knives and everyone has a limit with everything they purchase. kellyw
