    Exactly what I did with mine! My gun was $759.00 I see them on sale all the time for similar amounts. You will be hard pressed to make anything as good for less. My .02 Randy

    This is what I have been using. I stole the idea from a guy who posted a Youtube Video here. Took approximately 30 minutes to make and works really well. A tight 3/4" hole and then saw cut the slots. Randy

    M-Tecs replied to a thread Winchester 1885 in Single Shot Guns
    Since it started life as a 32-40 and was rebored I am assuming is an original?? If so dates of manufacture become somewhat important. Winchester started using stronger steels in the barrels around 1894 for the 94's and the 95's. Not sure when...

    Not really sure about statement about milk or buttermilk changing the taste? I have never found that to be true unless it was to remove foreign tastes like sage or the iron taste of excess blood. Deer or antelope that have been feeding on sage...

    megasupermagnum is spot on. Case volume will determine pressure. Some slow powders do odd things with too low of pressure. Powders like Unique work very well with the same charge in the 45 Colt and the 45/70 so loads like these would be fine for...

    No, not in the casting business but between work, Air National Guard, competitive shooting schedule and family when I would cast it would be for 2 or 3 days for 12 to 16 hours a day.

    At some higher end steak houses you get dry aged beef that has been aged 240 days. Is it tender, yes, but I don't care for the flavor. For beef 21 days to 90 days is were I like the flavor. Passed 120 days not so much. Aging any meat does effect...

    That would be Pyrex Hoppers. They work great on Dillon's. If you can find the proper size they would work great. You need 1 1/2" OD. They don't list sizes so you would have to call them.
