    For me and my M92 (Chiappa) 44-40 it's a moot issue as I use RCBS dies which put a nice mild roll crimp on the cases.

    ^^^^^^^ What I do after deburring and lubing the alignment pins and sprue plate. I've been using Lee moulds since '73/'74(?) and still have yet to ruin one. Figured out long ago that beating on the sprue plate does an aluminum mould no good so I...

    "Why do they go sideways?" If one sticks to the original load then Skeeter's load doesn't "go sideways"....... It's when some want to use other than 7.5 gr of Unique under a "Keith" bullet in 44 SPL cases with a standard LP primer which IS the...

    As my eyes continued to go even further south I've had to pretty much give up on the factory sights of my M94 carbine. Even with a Lyman receiver sight with Merit disc by the time i get the iris closed enough to bring the front sight into focus not...

    The fastest hand held rifle I've ever shot was a 22-284. It pushed 4300+ fps with a 45 gr jacketed bullet over my Oehler chronograph back in the mid '70s. Barrel life was very short........

    Barrel length can make a difference in sub or sonic from standard velocity 22LR. Optimal barrel length for max velocity is supposed to be 18" - 20" +/-. When shooting some 22LR standard velocity out of my 20" barrel AR with M262 device I get a...

    "There were two lengths of rounds that would fit in the 45 colt, the shorter round being the schofield that fit in both pistols and then the long one was the colt thus the long colt." I know that's been said and printed over and over until it...

    No problem bigted. Just a note though; the 3Fg load did contain 1/2 gr more powder. Would have to re-test with equal charges with several of each but past experience tells me the resulting psi's would be very similar.....probably any variance...

    However, for use in Army SAAs the arsenals loaded the 45 Gvmt cartridge with a 230 gr bullet over 28 or 29 gr of BP so the cartridge could be used in both the Schofield and the Colt SAAs. The original 45 Scofield cartridge has to large a rim so...

    That is one heck of a crimp Savvy Jack!!!!! Entirely to much as evidenced by the case brass being swaged in between the collet fingers. I use several different Lee collet FCDs to crimp case mouths into crimp grooves on cast bullets. Simply...

    I've a couple Uberti SAs and shot a lot of 454190s, 454490s and 45-255-KTs through them. Also have a Uberti 1873 lever action and a Contender barrel in 45 Colt. Over the last 10+ years I've become more partial to shooting lighter weight bullets. ...

    There are 2 cures to solve the problem. Polishing the feed ramp may help but probably won't. The problem is not the feed ramp as the bullets aren't hanging up there. First solution and the easiest is to simply use a more pointy or more round...

    Please feel free to do as you will, that is what a "free" country is supposed to be about. However. the attitude you express in your 1st paragraph is what will divide us gunowners and eventually allow the gun grabbers to win. I would simply offer...

    Not correct; With an unsuppressed firearm the majority of the noise will be the muzzle blast. Factually, if you are the shooter or within close proximity you will most likely not hear any of the sonic crack at all as it is completely...

    Another thing to consider is the bedding. With the long barrels it is very easy for the stock to bend them. With the barreled action laying in the stock if, when the front guard screw is tightened, the action is pulled down into the stock the...

    When I joined the Oregon State Police we had M94 30-30s in the Patrol cars in Eastern Oregon. That was the instructions we had for them also. Issue ammo was Winchester 160 gr FMJRN.
