    Probably not much since my reloading shed is 100 ft from my house. But thank's for what I'm sure was a well meaning response:roll:

    I use AA#5 in all my handguns for simplicity. In my hands, I got better accuracy than with Unique and it is of similar speed and application. I load 10-11 gr in 45 Colt or 44 mag for everything except for hunting I use 12gr under 429421 in 44 mag...

    T-Bird replied to a thread Neat little gun in Leverguns
    My new '94C is fine. I've had it since Sept (I think). My only complaint was the finish on the wood, I put a couple coats of boiled linseed oil on it and it looks good. Bore must be smooth, 2 designs of commercial hardcast boolits and 2 different...

    Just googled muzzle loader slings and "The Possibles Shop" has 2 very similar slings. Hope this helps.

    T-Bird replied to a thread Lever rifle slings? in Leverguns
    I've got a leather one that I used with my muzzle loaders that loops around the barrel and laces a "cup" around the butt stock. Bought it in the '90's from the LGS still have it but really don't shoot muzzle loaders much anymore. Came from one of...

    New drum seems better, leaked AA#9, but not as bad. Doesn't seem to be leaking AA#5-which I hope continues, I use a lot of AA#5. I don't think that I could fit that Uniflow onto that turret press with any sort of linkage, I think it's too big.

    Thanks guys, I got AA#9 12.3 gr to shoot better than the Lil gun with the LBT 180 WFNG at 100 yds. Still clusters around 1" at 50 yds but is much tighter at 100 than Lil Gun, and looks like it is shooting as well as I can shoot it (3-4") within my...

    Yeah, I tried 12 gr 2400 and it was wild enough that I couldn't see it working- maybe I was wrong. I both love and hate working up loads. The #7 load is slower, but higher pressure than the Lil gun loads- all of them. I would be happy with 3 MOA...

    I posted a thread when I got this gun and have been giving updates in case anyone is interested. My experience is perplexing. I got 358429 to shoot very well (11/2 in) at 50 yds using 13 gr Lil Gun mag primer and chronyed it at 1650ish fps. When I...

    I'll call Lee and ask for Peter, Thanks Grmps. What do you mean "yes there is remove the disconnector? I removed the linkage on the Autodrum that you have to reset each time, is that what you are talking about? I have seen linkage that are made by...

    I started a thread about this 11/2 yrs ago when I got my Lee Turret Press. The powder measure leaked everything but stick powders. I sent it back to Lee, they "worked on it" and it leaked just as bad as it did when I returned it. I should have sent...

    T-Bird replied to a thread New marlin 1894 cs 357. in Leverguns
    After running about 30 rnds out of it with LY 358429 loaded "short" I have concluded that it feeds well but is not anywhere near as consistently accurate as it is loaded crimped in the crimp groove (1.660). May single load for hunting.

    One last thing, (AFAIK), this gun shoots and feeds LY 358429 well at oal of 1.580 which is crimp at forward edge of front driving band in .357 brass. The above report was with the same boolit loaded longer and single loaded I see I didn't say that...
