Re: Armi San Paolo Remington 1858 New Army

On nipple wrenches, they can never be too substantial and the best system is where the nipple has a square "drive". Common nipples can be squared and a suitable wrench made. I found an interesting, though somewhat pricey site. https://www.peterdyson.co.uk/acatalog/NIPPLES.html I went to s...

Re: Armi San Paolo Remington 1858 New Army

Robert and I will always agree to differ on weight V volume but it it an irrefutable fact that a grain is a unit of weight and not volume in spite of what Sam says! I finally came down on the weight side of the fence after becoming seriously involved in British Black Powder loads for my Snider &...

Re: Armi San Paolo Remington 1858 New Army

You can weigh all of your powder, but there is no discernable difference in results over a powder measure....according to Sam Fadala.


The advantage is guaranteed consistency of charge weight plus much less faff when loading the chamber :)

Re: Armi San Paolo Remington 1858 New Army

Personally I wouldn't bother with a caper and I would not use a flask. Contrary to general belief powder is measured in grains and that is a measure of weight not volume.......... 1 grain = 0.000142857 lbs / 0.06479891 grams. I always measured my charges into plastic tubes BEFORE going to the range ...

Re: Armi San Paolo Remington 1858 New Army

When I had my 1858 (Pietta) I found the 2 things of most help were a bench loader and larger hand grips ( both made myself) bench.jpg GRIPS.jpg The bench loader make it much easier to load a consistant pressure and it also makes it much easier to mount the caps. The hand grips on my Pietta, as you c...

College Grad..........

A young man hired by a supermarket reported for his first day of work. The manager greeted him with a warm handshake and a smile, gave him a broom and said, “Your first job will be to sweep out the store.” “But I’m a college graduate,” the young man replied indignantly. “Oh, I’m sorry. I didn’t know...

Re: FujiFilm X-E3

Like I said Robert, one of the members of our photographic club has one and the results are quite stunning.
The range of Fuji lenses is a little restrictive but you can buy adapters to take other makes of lenses.

This X-E3 comes with an 18/55 mm lens but there are many others available. On paper it lo...

Religious prophylactics

The Muslims first invented the condom in the year 654 using a goat intestine. Christians expanded on this idea in 1364 by taking the intestine out of the goat first. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

So you sold 9? :roll:
Obviously you now know the ropes and a table at another show would probably nett you a better profit :)
