    ...............The original add (and for sometime afterwards) had barrels of 45-70 and 444 Marlin threaded and set up for the original #1 military action. The 45-70 in original BP loads, or smokless equivalent were a fine combination. Those fitting...

    I always try to collect a wide variety of manuals, be they powder, bullet, or anyone in between. It is true that older books are, and should be suspect of load data as powder has been changing over the decades. But, the older manuals are handy to...

    ................The Ampco nipples are made of Beryllium Copper. I use them in my Whitworth and Rigby muzzle loading .451" match rifles. They last a lot longer then any steel nipple, but are not as long lived as a Platinum lined nipple. Just much...

    It is spelled Whelen, not Whalen. Just saying. I have had two Remington 700 Classic rifles in this chambering. One was just so much fun I got a second when it came up for sale. I had great loads made up for both Jacket and cast for elk hunting. ...

    Go with the Lyman #50. Unless your using very specific jacketed rounds it should cover 99% of your needs IMHO.

    ............A couple of years ago I bought a used S&W M25-5 revolter, and was mentioning to my pal 9.3x62Al that the accuracy didn't seem to be up to par. As an aside I have an old model Ruger stainless Vaquero, a Rossi M92 rifle and a Miroku M92...

    Hey Fly, I don't know from tec but doing what it takes is easy. I used my numbered drills on the nipples - it is the first thing to do. But when the new nipples mic less the 0.040" that is the limit of standard drills. I may get some cheap China...

    I ended up taking 0.015" off the top of the Ampco nipple. Works great now for the CCI #11 cap. The #11 Remington caps are a good fit but not as tight as the CCI are after the nipple was shortened. I am hunting with the CCI.

    I like to use my bandsaw too. However, any coarse tooth wood saw, hand or electric will do it. A table saw is my last option but works. Cut half way and turn over and cut the rest. Once you do some, it is not hard.
