MLAIC World Championships 2012 (General)

Looking forward to this although my personal goal only is to improve my results from Hamina last year.
But the trip itself will be a blast, I'm certain of that :-)


I'll be shooting six classes with three rifles:
Maximilian/Pennsylvania O. with a civilian jaeger rifle by Christof Schel, Sweden (ca. 1730) with a German barrel dated 1648. Probably an ex-wheellock .65 caliber.
Minié/Lamarmora O. with a Lawrence & Robbins P-1853.
Whitworth/Vetterli O. with a Swedish M1860 Wrede.

I'm onto something that (in my eyes)looks like precision with the .577. The Wrede needs a lot more testing. The jaeger performs well at 50m but I have difficulties at 100m. I have a .650 Jeff Tanner-mould for this rifle and I can't seem to get rid of air pockets below the sprue. I have opened the filling hole, tried 'force-feeding' lead, swirling and tapping but so far with poor results.
Anybody have a tip how to get better roundballs with these moulds?

Best regards,
