    Shot a 120 lb hog this spring with that load from a 5 inch GP100 using a NOE round flat nose that cast right at 240 from near pure lead, say 40:1 realm. First shot thru the ribs at about 25 yards, hog was walking and started to run. He turned...

    He will be missed, his music was a big part of a very good part of my life, great memories. I’ll play Long Haired Country Boy on the way home, yep good memories!

    They will also eat a truck, well enough of the wiring harness to run about 3000$! That one must have a mineral deficiency, I would recommend 40 gr one time followed by a good salt bath and hot oil soak :)

    I don’t know what type balls you are directly referring to, but if they are ball Bering material, they will be harder than Chinese’s arithmetic, 52100 is a very good knife steel! There are special steelshot wads to protect the boar, but if they are...

    Registered targets?? I would be shooting 1 oz of #8 because I will have just as many pellets as that 1 1/8 of 7 1/2 (and I have total confidence in #9 shot, but I want the extra energy in case I need to take one late) and less recoil. Recoil is...

    That falsehood has been out there forever, it is impossible to move the muzzle fast enough to “string” the shot like a garden hose. Shot column is about a inch, 1200 FPS load is 14400 inches per second, that means the 1 inch slug of shot takes...

    Could it be the differences in the Lee molds? Curious about cast diameters. I am a round ball shooter, so the interest is academic only :)

    It’s not, the lighter 7/8 oz load does pattern tighter but it is due to less deformation of the shot from acceleration, less inertia. Also the commercial international loads are all with hard shot, which also reduces deformation. A 7/8 load at 1200...

    Well made gun, many of the lesser priced hunting guns of that period put their modern “betters” to shame. I refinished an Iver Johnson Hammerforged a while back. The interior components were all stoned to fit and properly hardened, once cleaned up...

    Have you taken a couple shots on the pattern board to check point of impact ? Lots of times it won’t be what you think it is. Don’t aim it, just focus on the boards “mark” and put about 3 shots on it from 20 yards. You want to have about 60% of the...

    Very interesting idea, I will be converting a half dozed 327s shortly. I suspect the size discrepancy could be spring back, perhaps anneal the neck area first???

    I love this forum, 100% good advice. 7/8 oz of shot, the international load at 1350fps, breaks bunker trap targets with authority. Bunker is a much more difficult game than ATA trap. Twice the angle spread, 50% more target speed and there are 15...

    I suspect lots of the small parts may be common. Seemed you needed a hammer and that is definitely different! Glad you got it back running, blackhawks are dime a dozen unlike ROAs! Get the Blackhawk, next year :)

    Thanks, Larry Gibson, more valuable data on some well known loads. Since my 44 specials are both 5 shot midsize guns(GP100 and 696), you have confirmed these loads are more than I want to put thru them. And, even better, a quantifiable value to make...

    Excellent! Glad they fixed you up, I was under the impression they no longer had parts. Glad that is not the case. They are very good shooters, if a bit on the heavy side for carry.
