    M-Tecs replied to a thread 1/2" at what range in Rimfire Area
    When scoring normal targets if the bullet touches the line you get the higher value. Per the OP all shots must be inside the 1/2" circle. The group can not touch the line. Group has to be less than .278" center to center if it is perfectly...

    Per SAAMI the TD'S are 28,000 CUP/PSI. At 28k they are both the same unit of measure. Lyman and a couple of others reloading manuals recommend lighter but that is not 45/70 SAAMI specs. ...

    I wish. Strange thing is most people get strangely quiet will they have to back it up with money. I have won three $100 bets on 1,000 yard shots or should I say lack of shots.

    What a neat find! I'm not a huge fan of revolvers without adjustable sights, but I think I might be willing to make an exception in this case. You may find that those super light loads you are proposing will hit somewhere other than POA and will...

    M-Tecs replied to a thread 1/2" at what range in Rimfire Area
    To meet the OP's criteria each and ever shot has to be within plus or minus 1/8" of the absolute dead center for both POI and group size. Even at 25 yards with the best ammo and equipment (which I have) I don't believe I would claim I can do it...

    Unless the Caspian frame was somehow modified for the Ciener conversion, the biggest change you MIGHT have to make is the ejector, which is held to the top of the frame by a cross pin (both visible when the slide is removed. There are some...

    If I were starting from scratch on the OP's quest, I would look long and hard at the Model 63 S&W with four inch barrel. If I felt the need for more power, I would go with the Model 60-4 which retains the stainless adjustable J-frame platform only...

    Have you tried Old Western Scrounger? I would expect him to have it(???) I bought some NOS 32 Long Colt in the old yellow Winchester boxes from a local hardware wholesaler back in the early '70s when I had my 1892 Marlin. Wish I'd never sold it!...

    Since it started life as a 32-40 and was rebored I am assuming is an original?? If so dates of manufacture become somewhat important. Winchester started using stronger steels in the barrels around 1894 for the 94's and the 95's. Not sure when...

    megasupermagnum is spot on. Case volume will determine pressure. Some slow powders do odd things with too low of pressure. Powders like Unique work very well with the same charge in the 45 Colt and the 45/70 so loads like these would be fine for...

    The manufacturers are pretty casual about labeling their 32 revolver dies. I’ve used dies from Lee, Lyman, and RCBS for my 32s from S&W (“short”) through 327 FM for FL sizing without issue. The only problem I’ve ever had was mouth belling or...
