    No problem rking22, some people get it others not so much. Some people actually use their 22's ,other are happy to hit dirt clods @ 10 paces when they hit the loud button.

    Actually I could care less!!!!!! I was merely trying to point out that there can be a difference in who made the blazers. To some people it matters, others it's nothing more than blammo ammo fodder. I guess I should look at it as I should quit...

    The majority of issues with the 9mm/cast bullet combo come from the factory expanders that come with the 9mm die sets. You want an expander that is long enough to expand the cases deep enough to protect the base of the bullet from being swaged down...

    The h&g #50's tend to be the most accurate when only the bottom 2 lube grooves are filled.

    Ain't that the truth!!!^^^^ Owned the same 629-4 classic for years & shot countless 1000's of rounds in it using anything from mild to wild with 310gr to 162gr bullets and anything from clays to 296. It's nothing more than a beater truck gun, no...

    My Schmitt built ppc revolver is the long cylinder version. Was going to buy the short cylinder version but I didn't want to get locked into using wc's only. Countless 1000's of rounds down the tube with nothing but quality range time.

    I've carried bulldogs since the 80's, they flat out thumb anything they hit. Bulldogs are at their best with bullets in the 180gr to 220gr range. The h&g #142 (220gr thompson design/358156's big brother) flat out shoots in these bulldogs. H&G put...

    Very nice!!! There's something to be said for quality firearms. They never go down in value and the owners can enjoy excellent quality range time with them for decades. Then sell them at 300%/400%+ profits. It's nice to get paid for...

    FWIW: I've done a little testing with hb hp bullets in 5 different calibers using 14 different hb molds and hp'ing the bullets with a forster case trimmer/case trimmer & 60* center point drill/45* countersink. Along with swaging my own hb hp...

    Odd??? I've shot a lot of hp's in different calibers, most of it being range scrap/berm lead that has averaged 8bhn. 8bhn bullets expand @ 950fps in several different calibers and 20+ different hp shapes/designs. Seen a lot of low velocity 44spl...

    It would depend on where I lived. My 1st gun was a bb gun, I was 5 and we lived in the city at that time. Instead of driving out to the country or range to shoot I'd simply go to the basement (winter) garage (summer) and had a bullet trap setup....
