    So glad to hear she’s doing well! Can’t wait for pictures, since our 2 legged kids left home, we take lots of cat pictures.

    RJM52, seems you have a 10mm GP100. Could you post a couple closeups of the barrel extension? I have never been able to put hands on one and wondering what they did to beef that up is driving me nuts! If you know any details about that design or a...

    I get 1175 with 13 gr of 2400 with a 230 gr LFN HP out of my 6inch GP100. Going to drop that back a bit as I was only wanting 1000 or so. Shoots lights out, and deer don’t go far. I suspect that load is running in the 22,000 psi range, more than I...

    Was wondering what was going on. It looked like he was just trying to get enough posts for S&S , I quit playing to see how it played out. Didn’t take as long as I expected!

    I don’t remember doing anything to my Lee 41 mag dies to load my 41 specials. It had the adjustment range needed.

    As far as pump shotguns, most people have no idea how to shoot one. If riding the recoil means holding rearward pressure on the forend, don’t try that with a M12. It has a lock that requires foreword movement of the slide to unlock. That is...

    I am not so sure about that. Any chrono data for that 410 load from the 3 inch barrel? 1200 from a 28 inch is about right, I really doubt itís anywhere near that in the pistol length. 35 gr pyrodex p gets 1250 with that 80 gr ball. For the size of a...

    What difference does it make what the headstamp is? The same bullet of the same alloy at the same velocity and rpm will have the same exterior ballistics and the same effect on game. Wheather it was breach seated in front of a 32-40 case or on a...

    I have had one since they were released, had various barrels over the years. I love it, a bit quirky in the safety and double set triggers but nicely made. If you are a bench shooter you may not like it, I hear it’s not convenient. I’m a woods...

    I don’t think that was aimed at you, threads on Skeeter loads tend to go sideways. I just measured my 696 at the end of the barrel extension. It is .040 and I believe I have seen sever others listed and all were .039 to .040, probably 5 or so...

    The M69 barrel is a tensioned barrel separate from the exterior shroud, think Dan Wesson. My understanding is Smith first used the concept on the X frame 500 then used it to allow a thicker barrel extension on the M69. I own a M696 and was looking...

    To answer the question, cause that’s what they/we find interesting. Same with the folk want to pour a whole can of slow powder in a huge case to get an additional 200 FPS over an 06, cause it’s interesting to them. I have hunted with subsonic...

    My reasoning is I have seen 7.2 of unique listed as standard pressure in the past. I am comfortable with the Skeeter load being a reasonable top load for MY revolver due to much use. The 5% reduction in charge yields about 10% peek pressure...

    The M69 barrel is a 2 piece affair like the 500s, nothing like the barrels on M696s. The barrel extension is much thicker, by design, on the 69. That said the M696 I have has shot quite a lot of Skeeter loads without incident. I bought it the year...

    Look for a 2 character alpha code on the left side of the barrel a half inch in front of the action. That code is the month and year of manufacture. If the code is not there then the M12 is before 1921 when the coding started. I will post a link to...

    Reason n I said, something similar. I have used an 8mm pull down fmj “back in the day”. Necessity is the mother of invention. Glad you got it going, and welcome aboard!

    This is mine, on many occasions. Other times it might be a 22 single shot or handgun of some type. Will always be something light pleasing to my eye while being nice in the hand. 32WCF M25, sure wish they still made rifles like this.
