    Favorite of all is my Dad's 39a Golden. Near mint so it doesn't get out much. Just as a datum, I've rebarrelled a number of "boys' rifles" (Stevens, Hopkins & Allen) with used Model 60 barrels bought on Gunbroker for $35 to $50 each. They all...

    The O.P. has that G&H brass, which was only made in the 2R variant. So I'll venture my own starting load for a 45 grain bullet in G&H 2R brass, which is 13.6 grains of Lil'Gun. With 4198 I would no longer go above 15.5 grains, just to be easy...

    Before Jamison, I made my cases from .223 brass. The swaging-down process is rather brutal, and at the end one has to machine the O.D. close to the rim on a lathe. If you're interested, I have the whole procedure written up and can email it. ...

    I have several Lovell rifles, and have done a lot of study on the cartridge over the last 18 years. In a nutshell, it was the only size between the little Hornet and the .219 Zipper for about 20 years. Consequently it was popular, but often...

    I have tang sights on several of my single-shot offhand target rifles. Can't feature having one on a lever gun, though. Ghost ring receiver sights work best for me in my 99s, scopes on my 336s. I even drilled out the rear peep on a Mini-14 that I...

    Don't anneal first. I did .308 to .243 many years ago in one pass, using RCBS lube. Have never used the Imperial wax, even for much more drastic reforming. Just a dumb swamp yankee who doesn't know better I guess. Remove the expander ball and...

    uscra112 replied to a thread 45/120 in Single Shot Guns
    Y'got brass for it, too? Might want to inquire on some other forums, too. I've got a copy of Quickload, but won't post suggestions because I know so little about how accurate it is for such large cartridges, and I have no idea how strong that...

    Boil it. To prep for painting, boil it again in a solution of TSP, (trisodium phosphate). Sold in paint department at True Value, because nothing strips greasy old kitchen walls better.
