    I have many on hand now - I will be bringing a batch of them to the skirmish this weekend at Nathan Bedford Forrest State Park at the Forrest's Escort skirmish.

    Happy with my Vortex ball dimpler. Wood rasps for sale, maybe.

    I was at the range today with my H and P and shot 24 times without cleaning. Using 3f Old Elysford, 2f Goex, and 3f Goex (45 grains), I am happy with the results. If I can find them, I will be selling my two wood rasps that I was using to dimple the smoothbore round balls pre Vortex ball dimpler.

    To the "doubting Thomas'" out there, it is called the Bernoulli Principle. If you go to any good Science Museum, you find a display of a beach ball suspended in mid air. Air forced up from a working fan suspends the beach ball in mid air. Air from the fan should flow equally around on all sides of the beach ball. The reason that the beach ball bounces is because the surface of the ball is not dimpled and the grooves formed by the panels causes a disruption of even flow.

    For you golfers, the slice is caused by the angle of the club face striking the ball causing the golf ball to rotate to the right and then the difference in pressure between the right and the left causes the ball to slice to the right. The Hook is a slice to the left and again it is the angle of the club face striking the ball. To correct, lead more with the left leg and open the hips and follow through. P.S. keep you head down, someone else will follow the flight of the ball. Repeat as few times as you can and have a good round.

    Sorry, I do not have a good excuse for poor putting.

    Respectfully Eggs that is a bad choice. That name will have wives buying them with other uses intended.

    Just ordered one, Steve. Just got my first smooth bore last week. It came with 11 balls. I shot them Sunday. 10 of them even hit the paper. No doubt this is going to require some load development.

    Hi Hal,

    What kind of smoothbore did you get?

    I shoot an Armisport 1842 with 70 grains 3F Goex using an RCBS .678 round ball cast from wheel weight lead, filed and double-dipped in alox (xlox).

    I bought the Springfield 1816 Conversion that was advertised here 2-3 weeks ago. Relined original. It came with a Lyman .678 mold. I've not had time to cast any bullets for it. He had 11 in a zip lock bag with the sprues files off, but not dimpled or lubed. I loaded 5 at 45 gr of 1.5F Swiss and the other 6 at 50 gr. Put them in tubes and dipped the exposed half in 50/50 beeswax/olive oil. At 25 yards, 10 of them hit paper. 8 in the lower left quadrant. 2 in the lower right.

    Thanks, Steve. I'm not sure when I will get to shoot it again. Maybe Sunday, but not sure. Maybe I can cast some round balls one evening this week.
