    Hello GBertolet, I've been using Remington #11 Caps on top of Triple Seven for years, works fine for me. I have found a few with priming compound missing, I just look before I put them on. AntiqueSledMan

    Hello 4given, I purchased my Rossi new a long time ago, and it is a Puma. I always wished it wasn't, as the medallion looks kind of cheap. AntiqueSledMan.

    Hello trapper44shooter, When I started casting, I used the Lyman Ladle. It worked great. I had a cast iron pot which I made a steel plate it could set in, thus leaving a nice surface for warming molds. I fired it with a sunflower heater on the...
