    I don’t remember doing anything to my Lee 41 mag dies to load my 41 specials. It had the adjustment range needed.

    As far as pump shotguns, most people have no idea how to shoot one. If riding the recoil means holding rearward pressure on the forend, don’t try that with a M12. It has a lock that requires foreword movement of the slide to unlock. That is...

    I am not so sure about that. Any chrono data for that 410 load from the 3 inch barrel? 1200 from a 28 inch is about right, I really doubt itís anywhere near that in the pistol length. 35 gr pyrodex p gets 1250 with that 80 gr ball. For the size of a...

    What difference does it make what the headstamp is? The same bullet of the same alloy at the same velocity and rpm will have the same exterior ballistics and the same effect on game. Wheather it was breach seated in front of a 32-40 case or on a...

    I have had one since they were released, had various barrels over the years. I love it, a bit quirky in the safety and double set triggers but nicely made. If you are a bench shooter you may not like it, I hear it’s not convenient. I’m a woods...

    I don’t think that was aimed at you, threads on Skeeter loads tend to go sideways. I just measured my 696 at the end of the barrel extension. It is .040 and I believe I have seen sever others listed and all were .039 to .040, probably 5 or so...

    The M69 barrel is a tensioned barrel separate from the exterior shroud, think Dan Wesson. My understanding is Smith first used the concept on the X frame 500 then used it to allow a thicker barrel extension on the M69. I own a M696 and was looking...

    You don't size the patched bullet. The patch is supposed to be loose, it's only one wrap around with the bottom tucked under. I use it in muzzle loaders with great success, it does take a bit of dexterity to load but if you do it right the results...

    My reasoning is I have seen 7.2 of unique listed as standard pressure in the past. I am comfortable with the Skeeter load being a reasonable top load for MY revolver due to much use. The 5% reduction in charge yields about 10% peek pressure...

    The M69 barrel is a 2 piece affair like the 500s, nothing like the barrels on M696s. The barrel extension is much thicker, by design, on the 69. That said the M696 I have has shot quite a lot of Skeeter loads without incident. I bought it the year...
