    You can check out vendor lathesmith and get 'em a little cheaper: that's where I get all mine these days. And if you got your Star for less than $70 you can afford to get a nice batch of dies for it. Also if you shoot gas-checked boolits, the...

    I have the Mjolnir mould also and have checked them with both Sage's .015 30 cal checks and the 303 checks. I don't think the .303 check is any bigger in the butt -- fits with equal tightness. But it is taller when installed. I don't shoot well...

    The old Winnies I have around here -- the rifles are d&t and the carbines not. When you buy the marble's base you order screws separate to cover what your particular rifle has. The last Marble's screw set for 92/94 Winchester I got had the longer...

    earlmck replied to a thread winchester 1892 pressure in Leverguns
    Any Lil' Gun load with a 70 grain boolit that still maintains reasonable accuracy will be fine in your action. Lil' gun is a great powder for us 25/20 shooters as we still have low pressure giving good brass life when we have all the velocity our...

    Prone is for the young and agile folks; us more mature types are doing good to sit and shoot. We'll happily give up a bit of stability for the ability to keep on shootin'.

    earlmck replied to a thread case sizing lube in Cast Boolits
    I'm quite fond of the Hornady Unique mixed with Heat for a spray lube. 1 oz of the lube with a bottle of Heat. I stand the cases up in a shallow shell tray and spray from two directions from above so the inside necks also get some lube. You want a...

    That Seyfried load is very similar (in fact a scosh less powder) to my full-power 44 mag load I use in my Redhawk, though my plain-based is a 280 grainer. Water-dropped ww's and I am not a good enough shot to detect a difference in accuracy between...
