You should have told me he was footin' the bill. Now look what you've done. Flame We are in trouble now. I doubt he is going to pay us. Maybe you should pay my half beings you made the deal in the first place... Deal

Shocked Flint 54 makes do with powder by the handful, a useful lesson. (mind you, he never hits anything - ALLEGEDLY) Shocked

How did I get roped into this Shocked I don't use Handfulls, Just half Handfulls! Cool As far as hitting anything, Sonetimes its difficult to tell, unless little pieces of tissue count, such as hitting a Nutria with a .50 BMG! Evil Devil Most of the time I can come up with the evidence!

Anyone want to join in a 25 yard egg shoot? If you've been to a Primitive Muzzleloading Shoot you know what I'm talking about, they get fun every time you add another 5 yards! Kind of like an egg throwing contest except you WANT to break your egg, if you don't you eat it and only a few are hard boiled, ya never know which ones are only the Range Officers do. Nananana Cheers

Bushmaster....if you knew how you signed on the dotted line Deal we wouldn't be in this mess in the first place. Mad ROFL


Flint54....I can't say any fella toting "half" handfulls (though hand size being equivalent to Shaquille O'Neal) is immune from getting pulled in to the wrath. Very Happy But since you seem proficient in the Nifty Fifty, you can join me in catching the ever soo sagacious and eluding Bushmaster, and bring him to justice by BANNING HIM! Laughing Whip For after we're done beating the information out of him, we will then prop eggs upon the side brim of his hat and use your methods in muzzleloading expertise.:P

Although, i have no way of obtaining a barrel that could fit your measurements of powder.... Confused
BAN ME FOR NOT USING HINDSIGHT! Mad
Bonk Mr. Green

The Ransom rest was meant to Test handguns for there potential.
It was made to remove the human element in gun/load testing. So the gun owner or ammo reloader who was inquisitive enough can see what his gun/load combo can do with out his shaking hands. Idea

I do agree with you to some extent, however and first, i do believe companies are then allowed inflate their accuracy numbers. Secondly an "average" shooter would never be able to get the potential and consistent numbers which then and only a seasoned shooter/reloader would always question (because of seeing the known discrepancies) until proven in otherwise enthusiast hands.

My thing is that when i sold guns for a living, the average person would read, hear, see, or watch a rifle and/or pistol shoot these amazing one hole cloverleaf groups, come to my store and want that firearm because of it's great inherent accuracy. Well that was great, then i'd get this pi$$ed off customer that would show me a 2 1/2" group @ 100 yards and be mad at me! wtf And after that has happened a few 'dozen' times, morally i'd tell customers that posted accuracy is what you may expect, but don't be discouraged with 2 1/2" and under @ 100 yards, and that my friend saved me from a big headache! Very Happy

Lastly.....An old Smith mentor of mine would always tease me and call me "New School" (because of my machining background), and talk about Ransom Rests being the modern way for cowboys to have two hands, because back in "the olden days", that's how you knew a bad gun maker, by one handed people walkin around! Shocked But after building my first 44 Mag on a Bisley frame i returned the next day with in fact, a Ransom Rest. He took one look at me and said "Son, what the he11 you gunna do with that thing?" and my reply was "i'm testing my gun for safety, then i'm taking it off and testing it for accuracy". A mix between the look of suprise, and wth was on his face, but then he said "i guess i taught you well New School".

So with that little background on my learning, i guess that's why i still stick to the original "Ransom rest........WHY????????" topic, but to add: Besides the reasons for safty testing. Cool
