MODERN & TRADITIONAL MUZZLELOADING





MUZZLELOADER MYTHS: By Ralph M. Lermayer
Voodoo ballistics and other misconceptions still abound in blackpowder shooting.

Myth 3: Inlines shoot farther than primitive rifles. — Nonsense. It’s all about the barrel and the bullet. A flintlock with a 1-in-28 rate of twist will shoot as fast, far and as accurately as any inline ever designed if the powder load and bullet weight are the same.

A barrel is just a piece of steel with a hole in it. They all shoot the same with equivalent barrels, and it doesn’t matter how you light the powder — flint or cap, inline or sidelock. Older guns have slow twists for round balls or medium twists for conicals, and the modern inlines usually have a fast 1-in-28 twist for sabots.
Putting Meat On The Table:
Mossberg 500 Field/Security – 12 gauge

The shotgun is the most versatile firearm; with the right ammunition it can handle almost anything. With the trusted Mossberg 500 you can not only swap munitions at will, you can change barrels too. For small game and birds, the Field/Security model comes with a 28-inch barrel that accepts interchangeable chokes. There’s also a pistol grip and an 18.5-inch cylinder bore barrel for buckshot and slugs. This gun’s weakness, however, is reach, but for an additional $214 you can get a fully rifled slug barrel with a cantilever scope mount. No, it won’t take you to 300 yards, but attach a scope and you’re lethal well past 100. $477.00



Cadillac Creedmoor: Tascosa Rolling Block Rifle
by Elwood Shelton


Shooting in style with Pedersoli’s Tascosa Creedmoor Rolling Block.

It was one hell of a shot that September afternoon in 1874. “Old Reliable,” Col. John Bodine, stepped to the line at Creedmoor, New York, and cracked off a 1,000-yard bull’s-eye as deftly as if it were point-blank. Adding a dash of drama, some onlookers reported blood pouring from the marksman’s hand, a mishap with a libation moments before his turn. If that’s the case, we’d all like a sip of whatever he was drinking.

The wound, in all likelihood, is a bit of embellishment. Undeniable about the shot, it delivered the Americans a win against the world-renown Irish team. Also indisputable was the instrument at the crack shot’s shoulder—a Remington Rolling Block Rifle.

While time and technology shadow the long arm in modern-day shooters’ minds, the absurdly simple, accurate and somewhat underrated rifle remains among the most consequential single-shots of all time. It was, after all, the most used single-shot military rifle of all time. And thanks to the likes of traditional firearms manufacturers, such as Davide Pedersoli, the hair splitter soldiers on today—one might argue, even better than before.

Those might seem like big words, until you get a gander at Pedersoli’s latest rendition of the rifle. An attempt at balancing form and function, the Tascosa Creedmoor Rolling Block is something special. And, after some time with a .45-70 Government model of the brand-new throwback, it’s difficult to deny the rifle looks as sharp as it shoots.

Tips for Better Muzzleloader Hunting

Many muzzleloader seasons open during the best days of the year, and they can be your best chance at bagging a big buck. States like Tennessee, North Carolina, Virginia and Oklahoma open during the heat of the rut. Midwest powerhouses like Iowa, Illinois, Ohio and Missouri have late-season opportunities in December and January. But just because there’s a gun in your hand doesn’t mean you’re carrying a modern firearm. Follow these 12 tips to become a better muzzleloader hunter.

(8): Pack the Possibles
A good hunter is a prepared hunter. Make sure your possibles bag includes powder, bullets, sabots, primers, powder measures, cleaning jags and patches. Prep a few speed-loaders for quick follow-up shots. “I have a sling on my muzzleloader,” Helin said. “There are two loops built into the shoulder pad. In those, I already have my preloads in little tubes. I have that all set with a bullet on one end and the powder on the other.”

Keep everything — but especially powder, primers and sabots — inside a waterproof container or bag that fits within the possibles bag. While modern muzzleloaders aren’t as susceptible to moisture, it's still important to keep that barrel covered in rainy situations, too. “If you’re hunting in snowy or wet conditions, take a small piece of plastic and tape it around the end of the muzzle,” Helin said.

Buy Today...Great Reading!! Valor In The Ashes
by William W. Johnstone (Author)


...the natural enemy of every free man is his government


After nuclear war, an ex-soldier leads a band of rebels against evil cannibal mutants in New York City—from a USA Today–bestselling author.

A decade has passed since the nuclear nightmare of the Great War brought America to the brink of destruction. Out of the smoldering ashes, Ben Raines has emerged to build a new society in this once proud land. But in this hellish new world there is evil lurking, evil that will stop at nothing to destroy the dream of a new America.

Leaving a small rear-guard detachment at their home base in Louisiana, Ben Raines and his rebel army begin an overload expedition to New York City—the armed Hell on Earth of the cannibalistic mutants known as the Night People. For Raines and his rebels, it means clearing skyscrapers floor by floor and stalking an endless labyrinth of underground tunnels—a perilous search-and-destroy mission that will decide the fate of freedom's cause.

Recipe: Simple Breakfast Burritos

Camping season is upon us and with it comes countless opportunities to hike, swim, and get out and enjoy the great outdoors. If you’re at a loss for what to eat on your family camping trip, look no further. Below, we’ve put together easy camping recipes for our favorite dishes to enjoy under a starlit night or during a day at the beach.

Don’t allow a stressful experience over the campfire or cookstove ruin a good time.

Instead, plan ahead of time with these stress-free recipes to help you whip up something delicious in 20 minutes or less using minimal ingredients
    Ingredients:
  • 1 tbsp olive oil or butter
  • 2 tbsp canned green chilies (chopped)
  • 6 eggs (beaten)
  • 4 flour tortillas
  • ¾-cup Monterey Jack cheese (shredded)

  • Preparation and Cooking Instructions: 15 Minutes

  • To prepare these delectable breakfast burritos, start by heating olive oil or butter in a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Once heated, toss in the green chilies and cook them for one or two minutes before adding the eggs and whatever sauces you would like to add (e.g., Frank’s Red Hot, Sriracha).
  • Remember to stir your eggs and chilies as frequently as possible so you don’t get any annoying residue on your pan. Once the eggs are finished, sprinkle on the Monterey Jack and cook until it’s melted. Place the egg mixture on 1/3rd of a tortilla and use the other two-thirds to fold it neatly in a wrap with salsa or whatever other condiments you like.

PRIVACY INVASION UPDATES



ProtonMail's cooperation with Swiss authorities to out climate activist sparks outrage!
by Aaron Drapkin

It was revealed this week that ProtonMail provided information yet again to the Swiss police regarding a French activist.

The news is a huge blow to the company, often lauded for its attitude to privacy and its thousands of worldwide users, who are now unsure of who they should trust to keep their information safe.

Why is this so controversial?

The core reason this news is so troubling is that ProtonMail markets itself as a secure and privacy-preserving email service, one that is particularly unique in a global marketplace lacking secure email providers. Gmail, for instance, is not very secure at all. But If ProtonMail has started cooperating with the authorities in any country, then the service isn't anonymous as is often advertised.

Admittedly, in ProtonMail's Privacy Policy, the company states that IP addresses can be logged in 'criminal cases' – but that's also part of the problem. If it's possible for ProtonMail to start logging your IP address at all, then the platform as a whole is not very anonymous.

On top of this, elsewhere – such as their 2021 transparency report – it is suggested that this only pertains to extreme criminal cases. But this case seems far from the sort that a privacy-conscious person would see it fit to meddle in. A user commented last year asking for clarification on this point, to which a ProtonMail writer replied:
    A public prosecutor may request this if:
  • There is a strong suspicion that an offense considered as severe has been committed (a full list can be found at art. 269 al. 2 of the Swiss Code of Criminal Procedure).
  • The seriousness of the offense justifies surveillance.
  • Investigative activities carried out so far have been unsuccessful or the inquiries would otherwise have no prospect of success or made unreasonably complicated.
The perpetrator in this case, at least in most people's eyes, has not committed a serious offense. They're a climate change activist who has been squatting buildings, something which few observers would classify as an extreme criminal act.

It's an odd situation for ProtonMail: if you're compelled by the law of the country you're in to do something for the government, you have to do it – but their reputation was built on the notion of them being an anonymous mail service, despite the surveillance law being passed in 2015.
