    The bullet follows the rear sight. Just look at the aperture and see which way it moves when you turn it.

    NSB replied to a thread Turning Down Rim Diameter in Leverguns
    I don't know how much brass you have for your gun, but I can tell you that you'll probably get a minimum of a dozen shots out of each case. I'd think even more, but I haven't loaded mine enough to answer that yet. These cases are like pistol...

    Randy is correct. Lever guns, Sharps, High Walls, etc are all prone to POI changes from any variation in how they sit on the rest, pressure put on the gun while on the rest, and being pulled back into the shoulder. You can prove this to yourself by...

    I believe galling is reduced when you do use different grades of stainless steel.It's caused when using the same stainless steel. FWIW, neither of my two Dan Wessons had any, I repeat ANY problems with failure to feed, fire, or eject. They operated...

    I had two of them back when Dan Coonan was actually the owner of the company and producing the guns. I don't know how the new owners' (not so new anymore) quality is, but the originals were great. You do not have to shoot full power loads out of...

    NSB replied to a thread Name brand wads in Casting for Shotguns
    I've shot countless thousands of Claybuster wads without a problem. Probably into a couple hundred thousand by now. I haven't noticed any difference between them and the "brand name" wads. Not any difference in score either.

    You're right, I just saw "Sharps" and my mind went to the wrong gun. When I see Sharps I head right to the 1874 side hammer.

    It isn't going to get worse unless you fire another round on top of a squib stuck in the barrel (probably what happened to begin with). It's safe to shoot. It's just whatever you want to do about it. If it shoots good and if it were mine, I'd...

    09-18-2019, 09:47 AM have to put the gun on half cock before opening the lever. If you don't do that, you'll break firing pins. That's not a secret, it's probably in your owners manual.

    Too much crimp. Too many people add a lot more crimp than is needed to do its job. Pretty much just take the flair off the brass and you're good.

    EXPERIENCE will show that it's where the bullet hits that kills. Neither cartridge is a long range cartridge....or shouldn't be. If you're making a choice on which to use, look at how well the gun shoots, how well you can shoot the gun, and don't...

    I've taken over fifty deer with the .357mag with just the handgun alone. Another nine or ten with a Marlin lever gun and a Low Wall. I have yet to lose even one deer with the .357mag and only lost one with the handgun and that was with a full power...
