    Bazoo replied to a thread Share, 44-40 vs the 30-30 in Leverguns
    The 30wcf might not have as much knockdown power up front but it will make up for it in penetration. Judging the cartridges by their performances on deer ain't much of a comparison. The larger game, moose, elk, black bear, brown bear, sea lion,...

    I had heard that before but wasn't sure about it since I couldn't find anything to verify whether it was in fact correct, that explains it quite well! Thanks for that link

    Yes there is quite a bit of difference in what a low wall can handle vs the high wall, the low wall is not exactly a "weak" action but the lack of support on the upper part of the breech block does indeed mean it can't take the stresses of a high...

    The 1885 in modern steel is an extremely strong action that should be capable of up to Ruger no. 1 loads, I don't know for sure what steel Uberti uses but the action is rated to 28,000 PSI (Uberti says PSI instead of CUP?) for 45/70 (even bigger...

    I've loaded a mess of 358156 in magnum cases with 13 and 15 grain charges. Never worked up to the 16 grain load but I seen reference to it as duplicating the original factory 357 loads. The 15 grain load is pretty mean. Mighty fun too.

    Ed, I thought I and my uncle was the only ones to use old underwear for shop rags. I got a buddy that has that look if I use them in front of him. There is always a "those stains ain't from the oil" comment. I use them for rags on the gun table...

    Oh okay, I remember at least one of the pictures. I'll have to check out those threads. Been thinking, when you do get it clean, you could use a moly grease in the bore and then lube with moly in it to help with the fowling associated with the...

    Interesting opinions and comments thanks all for sharing. I've been considering a takedown version but don't see any real need. I like wood stocks too. I think I seen a thing online where folks converted a wood stock to fit a takedown.

    That's a very important point that's often overlooked and has caused failed bluing jobs. The metal needs to warm enough not to condense water droplets on the surface when exposed to the humidity otherwise spotting and even steaks can occur. I...

    I can certainly understand that and fully respect those who feel that way, in my case (and my wife even more so) lethal force would be used only as a very last resort and both of us are level headed enough not to panic and make a regrettable...

    It won't hurt to use a bronze toothbrush on them. On the cavities you can spin a bronze bore brush in a drill and use it on each half separately. A brass core brush is best as it won't slip and damage the edge. I spin the brush right for one half...

    Kev, what caliber is this beloved 1886? Do you have a thread on it? Sounds pretty cool. If ya let hoppes soak it will eventually dissolve the lead. What I've done on several occasions; Two to three times a day, soak a patch in hoppes and...

    I cull them out of my range sweeps and then reform them to .400 Corbon so that they'll never be used for 45ACP cases again and my higher pressure 400 CorBon loads have a cartridge case with just a touch more brass in the head. So if you want to...

    Rust blue is not like hot blue that is completely dependent on the surface gloss of the metal to produce the gloss on the oxide layer overlaying the metal. With hot blue whatever finish the metal is taken to is going to be pretty much what we will...

    I saw an old Ideal bullet mold on Ebay today that is a 165gr .319 rounded flatnose, flat base lead bullet that was originally designed for the early 8x57 (pre-K98 .318" barrels) and other early 8mm rifles. Should be easy sizing down for that .318...

    Been thinking on the weaver rings. Reason I am unsure is because of scope length. Those rings are wider and would put my scope an estimated 1/8 inch foreward. I might be alright but I'm not sure without loosening the scope. I'm eventually going...

    One thing that has helped me when I was having problems is to separate the casting and reloading. Get reloading down pat first, then learn to cast. For me atleast, frustrations in casting transfer over into reloading. There is nothing wrong with...
