    Note: Win LPP say for both magnum and standard loads. The Win SPP DO NOT SAY THAT. For something like the .357mag and WW296 or H110 you'd still be using the Small Pistol Magnum if you're following "book loads". I'm not trying to correct the OP, just...

    The trigger can be improved quite a bit. The single biggest improvement shooting double action only is practice. Shooting a revolver double action requires a lot of trigger time and lots of it. It's a skill quickly lost without constant practice....

    I don't have a single six so I am just comparing - 2 look alike one is a different vintage. I can send more pics to match up with what you have already. I was told the other is a Blackhawk cylinder in 38 Spl, but it takes a 9mm. Let me know. ...

    Daily Bump. The FWB Model 65 is a really nice pistol. Back in the day it was the one to own. Has Synthetic seals so they won't need replacing. The recoilless feature - at moment of firing the frame moves to cancel out the shock of the piston...

    I recently purchased several hundred of these bullets on here from another member. They're the discontinued silhouette XTP type bullet manufactured by Hornady. I got them with the intention of using them in my .357max rifle for deer hunting. A call...

    Let it be noted that the 45-70 isn't really a straight walled case. That's why there's no carbide dies for it and why it also grows slightly after firing....minute, but it will get longer and need trimmed over time. I still don't anneal though since...

    So far I haven't been fortunate enough to find an accurate "shorter"load in any of my max guns. They're all cut with long throats. They shot "OK" at best, but "OK" enough to satisfy me. One day a couple of years ago I had an epiphany.....just use...

    What he said. You will NEVER need to anneal 45-70 brass for any other purpose. Without a bottle neck it's just not necessary.

    Freightman, I will say a prayer for you on this, but.....God always has a plan and he's very aware of your needs at this time. He'll do it in his own way. It will work out OK in the end.

    Follow David White and Mike Bellm for some .357max load data. Also, MGM bbl's list loads. I chrono'd 158 Hornady bullets from my Encore/MGM and with 1680 powder I was getting just over 2400fps. Some are loading and getting close to 2600fps. Problem...

    I added this bit of text because I didn't feel that there was a really significant difference between a 14" contender barrel and a 20" Encore barrel. I'm sure there's some differences, but there's a lot of similarities. Back in its heyday, a very...

    I've been shooting the .357max for around six years now in rifles, both Encore and Win Low Wall. During that time I've kept pretty good records on many, many different loads tried and accuracy results. Most of the comments posted so far are pretty...

    Also a CZ. I have an Anschutz (my second one), have had other guns, and custom builds, and now have a CZ. The CZ shoots 98% as good as either Anschutz at 40% of the cost. The added bonus is that in rimfire you can get extra barrels for .17HMR and...

    Shooting the Oregon Trail .458" bullets my Pedersoli's and Winchesters wouldn't stay on the 4'x4' backer board every shot at 100 yards when shooting Trail Boss (Trail Loss is a better name). The .459" bullets weren't much better with it. Try 2400,...

    These bullets were available in both .458" and .459", and that was enough to make a difference in my guns. You might want to see what you have there. I used the .459" and one of my best loads was with 2400 powder. Both 24.0 and 25.0 grains shot very...

    Every individual gun will have a preference, it's not dictated by type. Get a variety and try them all. The gun will tell you what it likes.

    I've read through what you've posted so far and I'm not sure if you're reloading or using someone else's reloads? You did state that you used some factory loads in your OP, and used some "cheaper reloads". That leads me to think that maybe you're...

    One of the most promoted things you can get for airgun shooting is a chronograph. A couple of reasons: first, the manufacturers lie about velocities most of the time. Second, you need to know your actual velocity shot to shot if you're going to...
