    Gunny K., I wasn't referring to S&B primers as being Russian in this old thread. I know the difference, and I've also loaded about 25,000 of the S&B primers, mostly in small pistol. They're good primers. You just need to read the previous...

    If you do decide to list them here, do it only in the Swappin' & Sellin' section of the forum, as sales and offers to buy aren't allowed anywhere else. Hope this helps. Fred

    Been there, done that, with terrible accuracy. I had 1,000 of the sabots and finally ended up giving them away years ago to end my frustration at trying to hit something with them. Hope this helps. Fred

    When I was in college, I worked in the mail room of a moderate size newspaper, and the type setters were a short distance away from our shop. It was always hot in there, and noisy, but so was the mail room, where the papers came off the press. I...

    I know dozens of SASS shooters who use Marlins, so that market is still viable. The recent scarcity of Marlin rifles has driven the prices up, so I'm betting it will sell pretty quickly at the gun show. I know several people who are looking for...

    Marlins don't short stroke like Winchester 73's and 66's do. As far as I know, there's only one person doing short strokes on Marlins, and it's quite expensive, so in most likelihood, it's stock. I paid $500 for my 1894 CB Carbine about 5 years...

    A gently used Rockchucker is worth every bit of $50.00, and probably more. Besides, it has a lifetime warranty, and if something happens to it, RCBS will either repair or replace it for free. I have no experience with the Rockchucker Supreme, but...
