    Glad you got it in and installed. It looks good. If I remember correctly the Williams has a larger adjustment range than either the Skinner or the XS. I've played with all three and the Williams is my choice. Hope you enjoy it, Rick

    A bulged chamber won't be on the ends where you can measure it with dial calipers. It will be further up in the chamber, probably somewhere around where the webbing of the case tapers to parallel. If it is bulged the case from a standard charged...

    Yes sir! That is the sight I was talking about. I haven't noticed it being high-profile at all. I usually install mine on a rifle and zero to the load I"ll be shooting. Sometimes the front sight will have to be changed, which I have found to be the...

    What Peitro said! I have several of the Williams sights and enjoy them. They have more adjustment range than the two brands you mention and are less expensive as a bonus! Take care, Rick PS The Willams WGRS sight is the one I prefer and it does...

    A friend and I worked with his 375 big bore quite a bit last year. The FIRST thing we did was a throat cast. 375 Winchester brass is too short for his chamber for best results and we used the long Starline 38-55 brass and trimmed to fit his chamber....

    I just dug out my copy of that same IMR powder guide from 1990. If you have SR4759 starting somewhat below what they show as a maximum charge would probably get you where you want. I was lucky and discovered SR4759 just before it was discontinued,...

    .............I've got a couple old articles on reducing case capacity by inserting a smaller cartridge case into a larger one, but the larger was always a BN design. Having the insert move forward into the barrel quietly waiting there for the next...

    ..............I use the Berry's 612 Ultra for my 45-90's, which look somewhat dwarfed in there :-) The cells are .640" square, while the internal height is 3.75" tall. They also make boxes that will hold the 577-450 and .577 Snider base down. I...

    ................As it turned out, the two M73's at the local Pawn Shop (AKA 'Gun Store) were both 38/357. A week or so passed so I drove over to Turners Outdoors and they also had a Uberti M73, but it was a carbine and also chambered 357, priced at...

    I have and have had several 336's chambered in 30-30. I have yet to find one which didn't have a short throat. Yes, they do vary a bit but even the longest one is short. Nose diameter hasn't been the problem with mine. The throats are very abrupt...

    ..............Appreciate, the responses to my question. A local shop has had 2 1873's and a 1876 on the wall for close to a year. Thought I'd suggest if they gave me a good deal I'd take one of the 73's off their hands. ..............Buckshot
