    Now I remember why I gave up on .30H/.357H so many years ago. I just switched to the 7mmTCU & .35REM in 14" barrels. Made life much easier. And a 10" .357MAX if I needed it. Maybe not quite the velocity of the .30H or .357H in the .357MAX. But far...

    That load of 6.9grs of WW231/HP38 is just under the max of 7.1grs under the 250gr Bullet. I have a copy of the old HODGDON Cowboy Reloading Handout. It lists a starting load of 5.8grs of WW231/HP38. The UBERTI Henry/'73/'66 have a pretty strong...

    I'll 2nd the AWA clone. I bought one for my Daughter 20 odd years ago. It was beautiful out of the box. Smooth, it's the only single action I've ever owned that was SMOOTH right out of the box. All I ever did was change out the Hammer spring. We...

    The only problems I can see, is there is no heating pad for the backrest on the work/reloading bench chair. And if that's your definition of a "cluttered" room, then you, Sir have a severe case of ocd.

    There were molds made to take a zinc washer that was put into the mold before filling with alloy. My DAD & his buddies tried them. Slow casting and accuracy disappointing.

    Dipper casting with a one or two cavity mold is a great way to learn. Just be sure use a GOOD dipper like LYMAN'S. And please don't buy the tiny Lee "pot". Four pounds is barely enough to get your mold up to casting temp, even if you preheated...

    No they sure don't make them like they used too. I saw one at the True Value. I could lift it off the ground with two fingers of my bad hand. The one I bought when they came out in 1976 is built like a tank and still tough enough for an...

    Would you really want to cast & load right out in front of a storage locker. Who knows what type of people would walk by, watch what you're doing. Maybe call the Cops or wonder how to break into your locker.
