    That good pressure seal is why I use only REMINGTON BRASS in light loads. Starline is too hard & doesn't give a worth while gas seal. If your cases are that dirty & you ain't shooting BLACK POWDER, then you have a very poor or non-existent gas...

    I'd dump the RUGER & send your 1911's to a COMPETENT GUNSMITH that can do a GOOD ramp/throat job, get some new QUALITY mags. Then a few springs from 11lb up to 17lb. Prep & load your brass on a quality single stage press with good dies from one of...

    I shot A LOT of SKEETER LOADS growing up, for the same reason SKEETER did. Brass for .38 spl was a whole lot cheaper & more plentiful than .357 MAGNUM CASES. We always kept our brass for those loads clean, sized, expanded, and primed. Ready to...

    I once killed a rabbit with one 7 1/2 shot through the top of the ear. It must have scared him to death or caused a heart attack. At the time my kids wouldn't eat wild game, but he made the best chicken pie they ever ate.

    The only way to totally avoid the annoying calls is to get rid of the phone. Remember when there were no bells ringing to disturb your dinner/peace. Who needs the aggravation?

    Although generally this is true, I have several firearms (semi-auto pistols,single shot pistols and rifles) where it isn't necessary. Try both and see if there is a REAL difference. Good luck with your experimenting. Edd
