    Thank you for not calling it "seafood gumbo" with all the other meats in there. There are two kinds of gumbo, there is "seafood gumbo" and then there is "gumbo." Sounds like you knocked it outta da park!! Good on you sir! I lived on...

    No it don't hurt j-word accuracy in fact it helps that too. J-words are a metal jacket with a soft lead core swaged into the jacket, so when they are fired the easily obturate to fit the cylinder throat and they too will exit the front of the...

    It does raise pressures, but not astronomically unless A. the boolit is REALLY hard, 22-24 BHN or B. the throats are REALLY small.

    Don't size to undersize cylinder throats! Order a .452" sizer and have your cylinder throated to .4525" this is what works best with Ruger single action revolvers. In a perfect world, the cast boolit needs to be .001" to .002" larger than groove...

    Medium frame and large frame cylinders won't interchange, your new one is a medium frame, good to 45 ACP +P pressures of 23,000psi, or what we call "tier 2" loads, but CANNOT take the Ruger Only loads that go to 30,000psi like the large frame guns...

    Those grips tell me it's a Lipsey's limited edition flattop, 1 of 1500 or so. I think they made two runs of these, you can call Lipsey's with the serial number and ask. There were several things besides the grip too that Ruger did for those...

    That looks like a Lipsey's Flattop! That's the same exact one I bought to get my 45 ACP cylinder for my vaquero 45 Schofield conversion. The cylinder fit in mine within .001" of the original cylinder on every dimension! I kicked myself after...

    Let's not open the tolerance and look at what fits and what doesn't. Say the hole is dead nut .500" and you want to measure and see exactly what it is. You use a minus pin so it will go IN the hole. You do not use a plus pin because it doesn't...

    Heh looks like I had it wrong the whole time. I order all my gage pins from Meyer Gage, and I get Z minus pins. I always thought they were -.0002" but they are in reality -,0001" thanks for the clarification. The ring gages I use to set dial...

    My new model vaquero is actually chambered in 45 Schofield, and I used QuickLoad to develop the load using H110 and the LBT 250gr WFN-PB and WFN-GC boolits. You could certainly load the same WFN boolits into 45 Schofield brass and shoot them out of...

    Neither. I would wait until Meyer Gage is open and call them and ask before you order, even if you don't order from Meyer they can answer your questions. For the most part they don't make exact sizes because that throws off all references because...

    Use a gage pin close to the diameter of the work you most frequently measure. A .452" Z minus pin is actually .4518" where a ZZ minus is .45198" so your mic should be one that reads in .0001" for cylinder, barrel, and boolit work and it should read...

    Standards are pretty easy to get, a lot of micrometers ship with a standard included with the mic. You use the standard to set the mic to the exact length of the standard and this calibrates the mic. I do things a little differently, I like to...

    45-70 you better hop up the lead search and get ready for some fun. Great thing is the 45-70 is a meat gatherer even at 11,00 ft/sec

    After you fit the Kart, you may want to send it and get it throated and also get the headspace reamed because they short chamber them at .895" and there is zero throat.

    The most irresistible "deer scent" in the world is Hardee's Grape Jelly. Smear some about waist high on leaves or branches every 10-20 feet as you walk a trail then sit and watch it.
