    My rifle has a 23" Douglas barrel and the 250 Hornady loads I have started with 69.9 gr --Imr 4350 for 2560 fps 71.5 @2663 fps ...

    It does for me. 42.5 grs of 2015 with a 405 GC cast of wheel weight goes 1670 fps out of my Marlin 1895 CB with 26" barrel. It burns clean and very consistant.

    My 358 Norma loves a 200gr gc that I bought from a guy on Gunbroker just for fun and I shoot 30 grs of 4759 (discontinued of course) and it is scary accurate @ 100 yds with velocity between 1950 and 1988 fps. When I get a chance, I am going to try...

    Does the new 629 have a 2 piece barrel?

    From what I have seen on the new S&W revolvers the cylinder throats will "likely" be spot on the bore size. My 2 44's were a tight .429 with a couple cylinders that flat out would not accept a .429 pin guage. They left leading in the forcing cone...

    I have 2 total reverse shoulders and that is when I let some of the air out of my Marlin CB 45/70. It still bites @ 1500 fps so I use a piece of memory foam. I am going to let a bit more air out of it and get in the 1300fps range. It will still...

    You will like the accuracy you get from them for sure. I couldnt tell which of my loads were better than the others with the old Marlin open sights. When I got the Skinner sights zeroed, I changed my targets to a big black circle against a white...

    I got the black spot, much like yours on a hunting trip. I appeared to be the size and shape of a roach but it went away after 3 hrs or so. It caused me some concern so I packed up and on the 3hr drive home, it went away. Back home and after the 2nd...

    You will love that rifle!! I use 40 grs of Accurate 2015 and a 405 gr mold from Accurate Molds for 1500+ fps for a hunting load and it recoils at about the top level I want but shoots great. A Skinner rear Express and front sight helped A LOT. Good...

    sorry brother, I forgot where you live. I think we guys south of the border take some of our liberties for granted until we are reminded. Since that is the case, and since your rifle is a single shot, GC molds make good sense and so does your mold...

    Now you're cookin'. Especially with a 44. If your rifle "likes" the 2 GC cavities, you still have the PB cavities for a handgun.

    About 22 years ago I looked into having the lasik surgery to improve my vision. Eye doctor discovered retina in my rt. eye had detached and then healed but with scar tissue on the edges. Eye surgery cauterizing the edges in rt. eye, and laser in...

    That boolit should be stable above 750 fps. I am quite sure you'll drive it faster than that. As far as a mold with 2 different cavities, it is a great idea. I have an Accurate mold with 2 GC cavities and 2 PB cavities and my 45/70 CB likes both...

    jonp, have you tested the Buffalo Rifle yet, and if you did what caliber did you shoot it in? I just bought 2lbs of it along with 2k primers and 1 lb of 2400 and 1lb of Acc #5 from Midsouth yesterday. I am going to try it in a 450 Bushmaster Ruger...

    The twist issue is the one thing that has kept me from buying a 44 Marlin for years. Now that they have seemed to worked the demons out of the move from the old Marlin facility, I would buy a Remlin but not with the lazy twist. Randy, if you have...

    For me, this didn't start out as a hobby. I had been handloading for a good while but being a notoriously cheap a**, I wanted to shoot more without the cost of J bullets. Soooo, I bought a pot and a Lyman 450 and a 2 cavity 429421 mold. Back then,...
