He then moved it to the American Wood Powder Co., “Rattlesnake Landing” in New Jersey.
When that enterprise failed in the panic of 1893, he was retained by The King Powder Company.
Cincinnati, O., July 1, 1895. Editor “Sporting Life”
The readers of “The Sporting Life” will, I am sure, be greatly interested to know of a new deal of considerable magnitude which has just been consummated between the King Powder Company and Mr. Milt F. Lindsley, whom every sportsman in America knows as the inventor of and late manufacturer of American Wood powder. The King Powder Company has purchased all of the valuable patents of Mr. Lindsley and contracted with him for his exclusive services in, building, equipping and conducting its new plant for the manufacture of King's Smokeless Powder.
Lindsley competed at the 1895 GAH with a Smith
He used a Lefever in 1896

Milt F. Lindsley and his wife, “Wanda”, of the Kings Powder Company, of Cincinnati, Ohio, had the misfortune to lose their guns at Kansas City. They left them in a private car and locked up, but while they were at breakfast, someone entered the car and took both guns.
Milt’s was a Lefever 12-gauge ejector, having Whitworth fluid steel barrels, and the stock had been cut away on the left side, and a piece of leather tacked on. “Wanda’s” gun was a Smith ejector, with damascus barrels and a piece had been cut from the top of stock, and a larger piece put in to raise the drop of stock at the cone.

Mrs. M. F. Lindsley (Wanda), wife of Milt Lindsley, the King’s smokeless powder maker, was presented with a beautiful L.C. Smith gun for a Christmas present, by the Peters Cartridge Co., and King Powder Co. of Cincinnati. It is very evident that Mrs. Lindsley is appreciated, and her work for these enterprising firms has not gone unnoticed.
