    Both respondents confirmed what I suspected. I now remember reading the exact thing gnostic suggested but had forgotten it. I'm going to load a bunch of .38's with the Wolf primers and H&G #50 WC's. That ought to tell me if the bobbed hammer is...

    I have a supply of Wolf Small Pistol Primers that have always given me trouble not firing every time. This first appeared in a S&W Model 65 that I had modified for DAO by bobbing the hammer. The primers that did not fire showed a shallow firing...

    I've got quite a bit of Micarta that I got as scrap when I was working. It is all the electrical insulating material that was used on very high voltage equipment. What I have is kraft/phenolic brown. I've used it for various applications but...

    I've already got the three GRANDs set up with Fidelity. Hopefully by the time they are all out of college and/or grad school, they will be able to carry on with a well funded start on a retirement program. I was fortunate that my former employer...

    I'm hoping that your results w/215 gr portends good results with my 225 gr Arsenal mold. May be after Christmas before I can work with it.

    I do a plunk test whenever I set up for a new load or cartridge. I plan to do it for their guns also. Both if I can get hold of them even though they are both the same model. While I'm at it I'll also check my 9's out. Whenever I start loading...

    Two of my favorite revolvers are .41's. The first is a S&W 657 w/6" barrel & full length under lug. The other is a Ruger stainless Bisley. I had a blued Bisley that a friend wanted so I sold it to him and bought the stainless gun.

    Going back to earlier posts in this thread, I've got a 6 cavity H&G 50 mold. I much prefer to cast with the 4 cavity. I've got a couple of MP 6 & 8 cavity molds and they are a joy next to a 6 cavity iron mold. Even 50 years ago when I was in my...

    I've got the Work Sharp with the Ken Onion name on it. Yes, I'm sure I paid more than some, but I am well satisfied with the results. Just to be accurate, I didn't pay the price shown on the Work Sharp site. I don't remember where I got it but it...

    Beautiful guns. I have a Rossi in .357 Mag. I doubt that it looks as good as yours though. I bought the Browning B92 quite a few years ago for $325 when they were going for $500+. The seller had shot it with reloaded cast bullets that, I assume,...

    I've got that mold and it casts great! The mold came up to temp easily on the hotplate and cast good boolits from the start. Just haven't had time to load any. Too many irons in the fire.
