    As mentioned weight is the issue. A good stiff leather belt 1 3/4" + wide is best with a "pancake" style holster that holds the revolver tight so it doesn't flop/move around is what I've found to be best. My 4" Colt Anaconda is big and it is...

    Larry Gibson replied to a thread 788 Again in Factory Rifles
    A Lyman 311466 or the NOE version is the best bet for a "classic" target bullet. The NOE 30 XCB would be a better choice though. All three will give better accuracy most often than will any bore rider. If a heavier bullet is desired there are...

    Your Mauser barrel should have typical .005 - .006" deep grooves which were Mauser spec. Those are obviously deeper than the typical .003 - .004 grooves of most other rifles barrels, especially commercial rifle barrels. As recent tests recovering...

    I agree with this post. That gun does not need super hard alloy. I've just begun working up some hp loads and it is amazing how a little Antimony will make a Bullet shatter in water. A tight fit in your barrel is better than hard alloy for...

    It's a 45 Colts . I have 2 . A 16" seen from March 13' and a 20" from 82-86' . The slow twists are a bummer , the Lee 457-340F will stabilize . Important because mine don't play nice with super sonics . The SWCs get all undone and go wild past 80...

    you can get away with plain old PVC if you cut slots in the side to act as windows. I also drilled cross holes on both ends of my tubes and use 1/16" cotter pins. I run the tube down to empty then run 5-6 more boolits then swap out the tube and...

    OK great .452X.448 so the part that goes into to case would be .448 and the little ridge at the top that allows the bullet to seat is .452 That should allow plenty of bullet grab, is the .452 enough to place the .451 bullet on top ? What do I...

    No such thing. They just want the uninformed to hand over their ID. Most will not question this and just hand it over. Walmart thinks that the rules they make up are laws!

    I have come across a Lyman M die for 45 A C P The Problem is the main body part of the die is .450, this makes my bullet fit for a J-word .451 bullet to loose. Can I get ( or have made ) an M-die that is .448 or .449 so the J-word bullets will...

    There is .0227 difference in the AR and Colts rim . The Schofield shares the rim thickness of the Colts but is slightly larger dia . The Colts neck dia is .480 vs the ACP at .473 SAMMI . So the Colts is larger dia going in plus our cast bullets...

    This is what I made and used when I used to do it. I can't lift or carry much anymore so I am using what I have collected over the years. Once I run out, I will have to start to buy. But as of right now I have about 2.5K lbs. I could get a...

    Make sure you lite the end of the wick and let it burn for just a little bit. It helps the next time you try to lite it if the end is already charred.

    The box of Remington bullets is unopened, so unsure if soft point or fmj. Kind of strange that they would be for Winchester, Marlin or Savage rifles, but nothing on Remington rifles even though they are Remington bullets. Any idea on how old...

    Mineral Oil USP from the pharmacy, colorless, odorless, tasteless, nontoxic, inexpensive. ATF also excellent as is any modern 5w-30 synthetic motor oil.
