    They also made Model 19s with a 6-inch barrel for CHP, but less common than the 2-1/2" or 4". Some 3" Model 19s were made for Customs and Border Patrol, Office of Naval Intelligence and State Dept. Security for use by Marine Embassy Guards, reason...

    If it was me, I would use an inertial bullet puller. You put the loaded cartridge in the top, tighten the nut and smack it on some concrete until the bullet and powder pops out of the case. ...

    I figured out long ago that a pistol or revolver which weighed more than 24 ozs. loaded was too heavy for pocket carry. Since I have retired and grown more "portly" I have taken to wearing suspenders for comfort, and do not routinely wear a belt or...

    I had both the 255 and 252 and both shot equally well in a 7.5" RBH . Both of those and a 454424 killed 135-165# hoof weight hogs at 10 ft to 50 yd with a 1050 fps MV decisively .

    You use a spring to pull the bullet feeder tube down and it stops the dropped bullets.

    "THAT IS WHY I use Bullseye, TiteGroup, WST, or 452AA in the .38 Special, .44 Special, .44-40, .455 Mk2, .45 Colt and .45 AR." I certainly agree with Outpost75s choice of powders. I've been shooting M1917 S&W and Colts since the late '60s and...

    I'm one who disagrees with the philosophy of "always size to the cylinder throats". I did considerable testing using a Ransom Rest and testing at 50 yards along with shooting off other rests at 25 yards found if the bullets were larger than .002 -...

    jason280 Forgot to mention you might just TL those bullets in LLA as per the directions, let dry thoroughly and shoot. I do that to lots of commercial hard cast bullets with the hard wax lube and they shoot fine w/o leading. I used to clean the...

    Murf205 That would be worth getting the heater for sure. I do have one of my 450s mounted on a heater as I was experimenting with lots of different lubes, including some harder ones such as carnauba red, for HV cast bullet shooting when I lived...

    I'm with CuriousShooter on this one. Fire lapping causes wear of forcing cone and cylinder throats, but does little or nothing to mitigate a thread choke. A round-hole broach is the factory method to repair thread choke unless you pull the barrel,...

    Another thing about "how good" some bullets make the trans-sonic transition back down to subsonic is how close the make that transition to the target. The closer to the target the transition occurs the less noticeable the adverse affect will be. ...

    I had a problem with it reacting. But it was my fault. I did not cook my bullets long enough. Once I started the 25min timer after the bullets wetted out it went away. It was bad enough to cause a few rounds to baarley get the bullet out of the...

    I believe that the cylinder goes backwards, not forwards. In order to prevent wear and tear on your revolver, be sure to keep a little oil on the base pin and also on the front and back of the cylinder to act as a cushion during recoil. These are...

    I am getting Tactical Rifle for $16ish/ lb. And Auto Pistol for $20/lb. So it is a bit of savings. If I bought the AP in 8lb jugs then it would be the same as the Tactical powder.

    Other than the above some bullets will make the trans-sonic transition w/o losing a lot of accuracy, becoming dynamically stable or losing stability entirely. Generally a flat based, round nosed bullet with high sectional density makes the...

    I've been shooting 41 magnums for many years and have used a .410 H&I sizer in my 450s. That has always given excellent accuracy because, as already mentioned W&W and Ruger are quite uniform in throat and groove diameter dimensions. Also for a lube...

    I have an early 70's 1894 in 44 mag with a gouge in the chamber from the factory. Looks like a chip got between the reamer and the barrel. It works OK with moderate loads, but not with full power ones. I'm thinking it needs to get rebarreled to...
