    Blank black powder barrel

    Home brewed black powder barrel in .45 cal, 27" long x1" round 12/15 stock, six cut rifle groves .006" deep with a 1-48 twist right hand. Has been lead lapped with diamond past, muzzle crowned and bore datum machined at each end. Make a dandy confederate snipers rifle. $180. or there about.

    Hi Maca, No that one`s definitely for a muzzle loader and the 1-48" twist would be no good, for what you are saying a barrel the same as my Sharps would be the only way with a cartridge rifle with lead bullets. The Sharps 4140 round stock was 1.300" round and after a bit of machining down to fit it and the six grove 1-20"/1-18" twist is better for the 45-70. For good long range accuracy best buy in a barrel, my are getting better but not up with the mass produced ones.
