    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...

    NSB replied to a thread hang fire at the range in Factory Rifles
    I've seen true hang fires before on a couple of occasions. In every case there was a delay, but it was something like a second or less. If you actually had a six second delay I'd suspect that it was the firing pin in the bolt hanging up some way. I...

    Never heard of it happening and I've been shooting for over sixty years and I'm met literally thousands of different shooters from all over the world. I guess something happened, but I don't think it was spontaneous combustion.

    If it was me, I'd take that Henry single shot and ream it to .357max. Bellm or Dave White can do it for you pretty easily. You'll then have the opportunity to use a few powders that work better in the gun than h110. Nothing wrong with that powder,...

    NSB replied to a thread 45-70 Deer Killers in Single Shot Guns
    Yeah, it's the wrong diameter for a rifle. It's .452" pistol bullet, not 458" rifle bullet.

    I'm not sure how its a "bit to fast for the 556", there are lots of published loads for it. I've loaded both H4198 and IMR4198 and it works well providing excellent accuracy in my guns. I've found powders that provided better accuracy with different...

    Lots of looking but not much buying. I'll make a one time price reduction...a good one, and if it doesn't go I'll put it in the back of the safe with all the other stuff I'll probably never use again. How about $500 for the barrel, base, and the...

    NSB replied to a thread winchester highwall in Single Shot Guns
    Lots of things change over time. Usually it because better methods and materials are developed and after a while it's not an "original". If I could trade my Miroku made "Winchester" right now for an original 1800's era rifle I personally wouldn't do...

    I got this barrel to shoot 125-160 grain bullets and ordered it with a 1:20 twist. It seems to be just about right for what I got it for. Different load testing at 100 yards (actually 114 yards, my deck to backstop).

    I have a near mint custom built MGM Encore .357 Max barrel for sale. It's a 24" Heavy Factory Taper with Barbed Wire black cerakote fluting. I'll sell the barrel with or without the custom black cerakote finished 6-hole Pictinney base. This barrel...
