    I wish you luck in your quest. Although I can't go for the whole collection, should you need to part it out, I'd be interested in the 32L set. That would be for the revolver cartridge, correct? Pepe Ray

    I once had a bunny end up like that in our garden. It had gotten into our Ozette potato patch. I figured if it ate the toxic leaves, that might be the culprit but on the other hand, if it was a disease humans could get, I picked it up with a rake...

    I have had to "adjust" a couple of hammers once on a TC kit and once on a parts kit for a long rifle I bought years ago. My mentor said to remove the hammer and make a tool that will grasp the striker end. Then mount the hammer in a vise and move...

    At our monthly muzzle loader matches we have several "original" rifle shooters and one has been regional champ, national champ and so on. I am not sure where he got the smoothbores from as he keeps that info close to his chest. The 75 caliber...

    Last week I received an Mihec MP 311-410 brass 130 gr mold as a prize and yesterday I shot the first few boolits using the shallow HP setting from it in my 308 "scout rifle" on my 42 yard home range with four powders giving velocities from 1650 to...

    I have had to "adjust" the throw of the hammer a couple times and did not need to heat them up. I removed the hammer and held it in the large vise I have and made the bends. I left the lock mounted to the rifle so I could check the adjustment as I...

    I have two 308's with the same twist but different makers and barrel lengths. One loves 19 gr of 2400 with that boolit shooting sub MOA when my eyes and shaky hands are having a good day and the other prefers 21 gr of 5744 with 180-190's but...

    Well as I progressed from center fire AR-15 rifles into Sharps BPCR's I found the need for more and more stuff. These things are powder measures, screw driver set, punches/hammer set, cleaning patches (50 and 45 cal), wet patches, CO2 ball shooter,...

    I have one and it shoots very well in my 308 all the way out to 400 yards. I just pan lube the whole boolits with Lee "mule snot" without worrying about collection of dirt since they are either in the box to be shot one at a time at the range or...

    I have been shooting the 338 WM several years using the Lee 220 gr. My rifle is a TCR. I don't recall the twist but when I first started out testing CB's in it, the boolits would not stabilize below 1650 fps. The rifle does really well out to...

    When I had my Sharps and a Rolling Block I used Buffalo Arms .458 Creedmoor grease groove bullet molds, 540 grains in pure lead. In my Pedersoli Gibbs I use their mold and they are like the Creedmoor bullet with the nose cut off so only 520 grains...

    It would be interesting to find out how far away you could be and still get 4 BB's on a full sized coyote target. I have an old Savage 24V and the 20 ga. barrel does quite well on coyotes with #4 buck out to almost 45 yards.

    I had that first mould at one time, but sold it, as I had a similar 147 grain version. I shoulda kept the 140. Yours looks to be in pretty good condition, although one of the alignment holes seems to have some wear on an outside edge. MP/Mihec's...
