    Accurate has several designs intended for the .38 S&W in various bullet weights so that you can pick the weight needed to shoot to your revolver's fixed sights. I size .360 for my Colts and .362 for the S&Ws. 36-151H copies the factory .38 Colt...

    RCBS and Huntington Die Specialties used to make a die set for .44-40 Long Shot, which I use to load .44 Game Getter rounds using Starline 5 in 1 Blank cases. To load longer .410s use the Magtech brass shells, size in a .444 Marlin die, use a...

    Pretty neat build. I do have a concern about the heating element location. The pot does conduct heat well, but it seems like when the alloy got low it would get more difficult to effect heat transfer from the element to the pot and to the alloy. ...

    I would like to see a really light walking gun under 4-1/2 pounds with 24" barrel in .327 Federal, which could also use .32 H&R Magnum or .32 S&W Long. Midland Backpacker clone of Beretta folder would be logical platform for this.

    Many people who handload the .32 S&W Long for post WW2 strong guns approximate .32 S&W Magnum velocities and in the S&W J-frames you can do this responsibly, but the older I-frames and pre-war Colt don't last long when subjected to such abuse. And...

    Without a doubt pewter is generally and easy sale in S&S forum. Good product for shipping. SFRB holds enough that the shipping isn't a big part of the purchase. You should be able to fit 10# of pewter in a SFRB and have enough form that sale to...

    Actually not too well and only certain kinds. Friends haven’t had much luck with them and you never see an apple orchard. Peaches are another thing entirely. Grow like weeds and overbear like crazy if not pruned and thinned and the frost doesn’t get...

    Yes I have, and in 38 special for sure and I think some .357 mag also. Worked fine. Don't recall the load but can look it up. Just have to be careful since it is concentrated, easy to double charge without load in the case looking much different....

    Surprised and saddened by this news. Liked his posts, was blessed by his encouragement in my own brass reforming endeavors. He will be missed here and I'm sure in his family and community.

    If bullet drops from mold .312 you can put GC on in a .314 die without sizing the bullet and it should seal the throat better than at smaller diameter. Most of the Russian and Chinese 7.62x54Rs run large, some as large as .316". The Finnish rifles...

    Size the bullets .314 and try 15-16 grains of Alliant #2400, or 18-20 grains of H- or IMR4227, or 20-22 grains of H- or IMR4198, or 21-26 grains of RL7. Without the GC you can have a nice plinker or small game load using 6-7 grains of either...

    My deal was my peach tree. 27 gallons of peaches the week of July fourth. I made so many jams, canned peaches, and frozen pies. I am still peached out but my friends think it’s great. Mrs Fishman keeps taking my jam in to work to give away.
