    I checked the TK & Ranch websites. They only offer full moon clips. I guess the days of 1/2 & 1/3 are past.

    What is most important to remember is, that it is not oven temperature that is most important aspect to monitor. All coated cast temperature must be monitored in oven, and load must get to 180C, and thereafter stay there or higher for another 2...

    1/3 moon clips fit right into a cartridge box. If you want to spend your time removing empties and inserting loaded rounds. I used to do it while watching TV. Remember it's 25 clips to a box of 50. Money better spent buying brass. I use...

    Stupid will buy anything if it's marked Vintage. I saw a "vintage" Lyman mold NIB for only $250. It was a #358665 2cav in a new style long style mold box.

    I bought some 1/2 moon clips at a Gun Show about 35yrs ago that wouldn't let the cylinder close. I compared them to the old clips I had and noticed that they had a sharp edge on the outside of the outer 2 "cutouts". I filed them down to match the...

    When shooting for accuracy, I will use a 1cav mold. Usually 4 at a time. I cast in a rythem so as to maintain as much consistency as possible. Perfect bases are my 1st criteria. If the base isn't perfect, it goes into the reject pile. From there,...

    Put eggs in pot, fill with cold water, bring to boil, cover. Move to cold burner, let cool one hour. Rinse well in cold water. Fill cool pot with ice cubes and cold water. 20 minutes later peel eggs. Takes longer to tell then it takes to do.

    I think it was Brownells. But It's been 20yrs since I bought one. So they may have been Marbles. Yep, I went out to Look. Foreign Lever guns have Marbles. Old Winchesters have old Williams, BBL & FP-Peep.

    I replaced the cheesy sights that came on my Rossi 1892 Rifle with Williams Buckhorns and a 3/32" brass bead. The carbine I'd previously dumped had the same problem you are dealing with.
