    The #'s on them are their weight in grams, the tire balancer I have at work will weigh in oz to .05 or grams to 1, but I don't see itty bitty weights like these very often?

    My M77 338WM is a "liberty" model, it was an 1 1/2" rifle, good enough for Elk, but everything I read about them said to free float the barrel?, so I did and it cut the groups in half. I have a 7x57 made in '72, it shoots about an 1 1/2" too, but...

    I got the GF the LCR-LG, the compact size and lack of a hammer to assist in a quick draw and the laser, she works swing shift so she's out in the dark, were the factors that got me, the only other 38 that I've ever fired is her dads S&W "M&P", it's...

    Is this simply because you use 6grns of TB and 3grns of your other favorite powder?, or are you comparing the current cost of TB to the 20# keg you purchased back in the 60's?, yes you only get 9oz of TB but if you figure it by the oz it's right on...

    Use it in the 45 Colt and 44 Mag, I find that it acts like ball powders, you need to run it right at the top, and it runs in my Dillon 550 just fine! If there is a better powder for the 45 Colt SAA (Uberti) it would make it a legitimate target...

    HHMM??, I've been seriously thinking about filling in the relieved area in the barrel channel with lead shot and epoxy, and even drilling out the but and adding some shot in there? At a bit over 12# it's still a little light?

    All of my lever guns that will accept, and even one that doesn't, wear "spurs" weather they are scoped of not, I like them that way. Not at home to look, but IIRC?, I had to move a couple of the scopes back a little further than I would have liked...

    Headspace gauges tell you if the chamber is in spec or not, it tells you nothing about your ammo. A case gauge will tell you if your ammo is in spec or not.
