    Maybe something to it, you don't find (metal)pointed bullets offered factory in 30-30. I think you can get polymer pointed bullets though.

    Great info ! Good to have first hand knowledge. "Taylor Tuned" isn't a deal breaker one way or another. It's a plinker. An historic fun gun. Now I won't worry which name is in the bbl.

    OK, following along with the Uberti thread that is KILLING me. Is there a difference between Uberti and Cimarron single actions ? I'm under the impression that they are made at the same factory, imported by different company's, and that...

    I'll start by agreeing that a 45 is mandatory - just as JMB meant it to be. That being said, I have all 3, love em all. Accuracy is all about boolet fit to bbl. All 3 capable of shooting better than I. I also have 22 TCM, 22 lr, and 38 super...

    Thanks badwolf, NOE makes a great mold ! Just got the mold, figured out it's quirks - that chunk of alum and bitty boolets don't seem to mix well - granted I'm used to molds throwing 200+g 45 boolets. I get a few made we'll see how they feed -...

    Buddy of mine has a Win and a Marlin 25-20. Also running into a lack of bullets (and cases). I just got an NOE 260-63-WFN-BX1 mold for him - he dosn't cast (I know, I should disown him !) Beautiful mold ! Still getting it broken in and figuring...

    I saw a pretty clean 52 at the gun show last weekend, box, papers, two mags. Seller had some way high dollar Colts and engraved S&W's. No price on the 52 and I was too afraid of sticker shock to ask. Would like to have one some day.
