Annealing cup

An annealing cup suitable for annealing Martini Henry and Snider cases that have been reformed from Magtec 24 Gauge shotgun shells. If you want one for Bertram cases which have a slightly larger base let me know and i can enlarge to fit.

This annealing cup is used in conjunction with a butane blowlamp and a cordless electric drill. The cup is put in the cordless drill and  the case is put in side the cup, the case is then rotated and the blowlamp flame is applied to the neck of the case. As soon as any colour change is noticed the flame is removed,  the case is tipped out  and allowed to cool. this is repeated for each case. Do not allow the case to become red hot as it will ruin the case. Martini Henry Case not included  See under Martini Henry

577 Wad stack pusher with depth stop

When putting the wad stack (Fibre wad x 3 plus a lube wad) in the case neck it is important to keep the stack inside the case neck, this small tool allows you to set the depth you push the stack into the neck. This is particularly important if you are finger seating your bullets or using extremely light neck tension.

Fully adjustable from 10mm to well past the end of the neck See under Black powder

 

Just set the tool to push the stack to the depth you want the bullet to go in the case, check to see the whole of the stack is still within the neck of the case and you can be sure each stack will be in the same place. This tool will also allow inspection of the top of the stack to ensure you have no lube leakage that could result in the top wads sticking to the back of the bullet.

Kapok

Kapok fibre is light weight: the hollow core makes kapok very light.  It is extremely waterproof and resists clumping, it  bouncing back to the original shape.  Kapok is also environmentally friendly and is a natural biodegradable fibre. Due to its  wispy nature  fibre are flammable and most will burn up during the combustion process. This makes it ideal for filling the space over black powder in Martini Henry or Snider rounds.  

Kapok should be fluffed up and and  the minimum amount should placed over the black powder to hold it in place, this will be 2 or 3 grains. 50 grams (approx) (770 Grains)  100 grams (approx) (1540)

Tin of beans next to the 50 gram bag for a size reference only.

Puff-Lon

 

Puff-Lon is a lubricating ballistic filler that eliminates the air space inside an ammunition  cartridge and smoothes the barrel with its all-natural dry lubricants. Puff-Lon has been in development for over 9 years and in the consumer market since January 2002. During all these years reports have been positive with no unpredicted mishaps. One container is the equivalent of 22,700 grains (by volume) of powder. For information there are 7000 grains to the pound. See under Martini Henry

 

 


 

The testing of Puff-Lon has shown:
 
bullet An increase in the accuracy of any flat base bullets with smokeless or black powder
