    Char-Gar replied to a thread Santa Fe, NM in Our Town
    There is much to see, do and eat in Santa Fe. The fall after the summer tourist season is a great time to go. I have been there many times and will do back, God willing. In fact it is my favorite town in this country, but I am a squirrely kind of...

    The British 200 grain load you spoke of is a 38 S&W round and not 38 Special. There was a 200 grain blunt round nose 200 grain lead bullet load in the 38 Special that was called (I think) a Super Police Load. Frankly these heavy blunt nose 38...

    You have asked a valid question and one I have pondered on. There are videos out there showing standard factory target wadcutters giving great penetation in gel. These little lead kegs are moving along at 650 or so fps. So, why soup them up to 850...

    I found 348 Win 310 dies. They fit a Special handle, not just a large handle. No adapter. I have a caliber specific steel 348 handle, but I need it for my 41 Swiss CF. So I still need an adapter or another set of 348 steel handles. Note: It looks...

    That load would beat a medium frame, or small frame Colt or Smith and Wesson to pieces in short order.

    That was a smoking deal on some high quality vintage American reloading tools.

    Welcome to the site and the craft. I have been casting for over 50 years and have been a member of this site and it't pre-cursor site since 1998. The internet has enabled bullet casting to take a giant leap forward.

    I live on the Texas Gulf Coast where it get bad storms and hurricans from time to time. Quite a few folks have Generac whole house propane systems and are pleased with them. The community of 2,000 where I live has three of them with propane tanks to...

    Get a receiver sight and/or some glasses that enable you to use the sights. Don't descrate that fine old rifle! If you drill and tap it for a scope, I am not certain that even Jesus can get you into heaven. :-) I am 76 and with proper glasses can...

    That be the Redfield 102. The non-click adjustable all steel sight. They could be the dickens to sight in, but when set and locked down, are the best field/hunting receiver sight ever made.

    The handgun I wish I had back was a Colt Official Police 38/200. I lost it in the Great DeVorce of 94.

    I don't know Squat about Blue Dot, having never laid my eyes on it. I am however passingly familiar with 2400 in the 38 Special. You do not get a clean burn with 2400 unless you get to the upper pressure levels. Overall, it is a poor choice. A...

    The fastest way I know to seriously wear the blue on a good revolver is to put it in a Kydex holster. I use one for my Glock 19, but who cares about the finish wear on a Glock?

    Nope, not a lube dent. This will happen most every time, unless you go slowly, drop the press ram and rotate the case in the shell holder about 1/4 turn every time. It will take about 4 to 6 passes to get the case all the way sized without the...

    I have no experience with Uberti rifles, however I do have a Browning Traditional Hunter in 30-30 that I have had for better than 16 years. It is a finely made and highly accurate rifle with cast bullets. It would be one of the very last rifles I...

    I will stay far way from the science/pressure stuff, because I know nothing about it. That said, I will ask the OP why do you want or need max pressure loads? I have been loading for various 357 Mag revolvers for 50 years or so and can't remember...

    Likely a 9X57 Mauser Lyman 310 neck sizing die. Any 38 Special/357 Mag expander can be use. It is a very good round, with thump about like the 358 Win. A great deer and elk round. I also have one of the Lyman Shell Resizer FL die in this...

    Gosh, I wish I needed that press, dies and cases. I am a huge fan of older American single stage presses, steel dies and anything 38 Special. I could reload happily with that set up the rest of my life. That, said, I am very deep in such presses and...
