    I would surmise from the parts replace, the star/ratchet on the back of the cylinder was worn, as well as both the bolt and hand that contracted the cylinder.

    they went forth for His name’s sake… 3 JOHN 7 Our Lord told us how our love for Him is to exhibit itself when He asked, “Do you love Me?” (John 21:17). And then He said, “Feed My sheep.” In effect, He said, “Identify yourself with My interests in...

    The .45 Colt is a beautiful thing. Operating at a lower pressure to get the same ballistics as the .44 mag is nice, and the history is epic. But in the end, if you are up to it the .44 magnum can produce more energy with its smaller caliber. I like...

    Not once does the Bible promise us freedom from disasters, trouble or bad treatment. In fact, it says we will encounter these. What the Bible does promise is that God will be with his people through trouble. How he is with us is not always...

    I would suggest you use a tubing micrometer and measure the thickness of your case neck walls. Most are not the same all the way around, that is why bench resters turn their case necks. You may find your biggest problem comes from necks of uneven...

    This is very true. I sort by head stamp and then measure them and shoot from one uniform in length batch. I shoot 124 grain cast lubricated bullet (NEI mould). The alloy is wheel weight with a little tin. I load to 1,000 to 1,100 fps with either...
