If you look around, you may be able to find the article written about those thumpers by Maj. George C. Nonte, one of the guys that worked on the concept. They modified minie molds to get thicker skirts for the really heavy charges they used. Took 'em to Africa and slew a bunch of big beasties.

I'm thinking it was in a Gun Digest in the mid-sixties.

The article is in the "Lyman Black Powder Handbook", copyrighted 1975. I am looking at a copy right now.

May have been more than one, or one or the other was a reprint, common in gun lit. The reason I think that is I don't recall ever seeing the Lyman book, but used to read GD pretty often.

Ordered some old books this morning on Amazon, including one of the Lyman manuals.

Congrats on the new rifles men, well done, I shot my 58 again the other day, freshly oiled another strip of ticking patch material, filled the horn with FFG KIK, filled the capper with new hot CCI mag caps. cleaned and reloaded for the hunt coming up, you know, there's critters out there right now going about their daily business completely unaware they have upcoming non cancelling appointments with several Big 58's! smile

Level those sights, and lets get it done!


MOLON-LABE you commie vaginas!

Well, round one is over, I rooted the never ending drainages out up in Kansas to find several buck deer, did not find anything I wanted to burn my tag on, will be back for round two in December. wink

Thanks KW, i'll get him, he can have a couple months off to chase the girls, he'll be skinnier and easier for my old ass to drag out of the woods. grin

Okay 58 fans, what's the hot barrel twist for PRBs in that caliber? Dr. Sam says larger bore sizes need less spin.

Thinking about sending my Renegade off for a rebore.

Heck if I know what twist this one is. Finally drew blood this morning by the house. Plantars fasciitis in my foot has had me sidelined for elk and bear. Had a close call with a high country buck. Beats a sunset pic I reckon. Anyway, my first blood with Lloyd and a 58 roundball. Spot and stalk doe.
