I see here in a magazine advertisement that I can purchase a "Muzzle Coning" tool for $42.00 per caliber.
OK, so it's spose to allow the ball to be "started with thumb pressure, and gently seated with the ramrod. No more pounding with a short starter."
Don Getz says.... "I've never seen a barrel shoot worse when it is coned and they load a lot easier. Joe's tool is the best."
The ad also says... "Simple to use, this precision made BRONZE tool requires no special skills. Very complete and clear instructions supplied. (I dunno what he significance of "bronze" is.)
$42.00 for each caliber postpaid.
Really??? Is this true???
Think about it. All my MLs are .50 caliber. 3 rifles and one pistol, I could practically change my life for a mere $42 bucks.
Whadda yew guys know about "Muzzle Coning" that you could lay on me?
Thank You Kindly.
