Re: Caldwell Lead Sled concerns?

I have an early model DFT2. Have yet to find a long gun that doesn't fit it well. Looking at the newer version I can see your concern as the front rest wings seem higher and the cavity narrower than mine.

Re: Caldwell Lead Sled concerns?

Have used one now for at least 15 years, maybe more. Highly recommended. I've not noticed any difference in POI going from my sled to my shoulder, but I do not strap anything down on the rest nor do I ever put much effort during aiming on target fighting the rest itself...meaning, I set the rest up ...

Re: Smokeless Muzzleloader???

Spurhntr, What load and bullet are you planning? What are you thinking on a scope? Everyone says these guns/loads are hell on scopes. Current gun has a Leupold VX3 and I am debating wether to try it or go to something considered more sturdy. I got my barrel from Jeff last week and like you am still...

Got my SML converted Brux barel and assorted goodies from Jeff Hankins last week.

Factory pin fits VERY snug and locks up great.

Haven’t decided on a scope just yet but will have her complete shortly for a test run.

WBY 28 GA SA-08 SLING SETUP RECS?

Setting up the wby sa-08 28 gauge. Kryptek Mandrake Camo. VX2 1-4x20 once drilled and tapped. Will strictly be a turkey gun. Anyone install their own swivel studs, or come up with a better way to mount a sling? Wby is unaware of a replacement magazine cap with a swivel stud on it. Thanks in advance!
