    gwpercle replied to a thread Lead bullet in Leverguns
    50/50 clip on wheel weights and soft lead. Accurate and a good hunting boolit. Hard enough to shoot well but soft enough to mushroom and not shatter like a harder boolit. Ever since my free wheel weight source retired I've gone 50/50 and wish I...

    Certainly not a double charge of powder...no way that can happen . It happens a lot easier than you think and most will swear it's the magical "detonation" effect of the powder not being against the primer. Better method is tip the gun up just...

    It doesn't seem like that long ago when the paper catalog and mail orders were the only way to order things from them. First the Herter's catalog ...now Midway. If you loose access to a computer you can't buy a thing. I miss catalogs .

    No flack from me on the merits of a 22 LR , I sometimes carry one myself , it's all about where you place that boolit. Lots of men and game have fallen to a well placed shot. Gary

    .357 worked for 4 different 9 mm's . New 9mm's tend to have short throats , or no throats. I had to seat that boolit deeper for two of them because the nose ogive ran into the rifling before it would fully chamber. Be sure and plunk test...
