    Thanks. So I guess these do still have some use to someone.

    That may be a bit overly optimistic but it hope you are correct.

    I'm ten years behind you and generally feel the same way. I really like to reload and shoot, getting less interested in hunting all the time, still like to be out, just getting more reluctant to actually pull the trigger on anything as time goes...

    Thanks for the update and I'm sorry you feel like you need to distance from the site. I've enjoyed this thread. Wife and I are cat people, can't even imagine life without at least one. Seems like everything on this board is doom and gloom...

    Thanks. Do these tubes go with them? I'm not real familiar with shotgun reloaders, but these tubes seem small for 209 type primers.

    I got these in a deal to get something I wanted, package deal, all or nothing. No idea what they go to, some kind of Pacific primer feeder trays and tubes. Any information appreciated.

    Do you mind if I ask when you decided this. Sorry if it seems like a personal question, but everybody's situation is different. We're seeing unprecedented interest among shooters, both new and experienced, but I wonder how long that will last?...

    Hard to get that much misinformation in that little of space. The original case design limited its usage in other firearms. It has NOTHING to do with the military designation. That is 100% BS. The military adoption ensures widespread civilian...

    Well here's the update. Spoke with Jes. Not able to have this roller rebore to 40-65 Winchester. The problem is the shoulder of the current caliber. The reamer for the 40-65 will not clean up the shoulder in the chamber. No mention about the wall...

    Early cartridges were very expensive and black market 50/70 and 45/70 was a big problem. The firearm manufactured chambered civilian firearms in these cartridges as soon as they got samples. In the case of the 45 Colt it's original design was...

    With all the very good bullets available I am not sure what the attraction to this bullet is. I have had one, it is the special replica to match the 1873 Springfield bullet to be used with BP. Outside of that realm it does not do anything that...

    I was surprised to learn there was an actual season on them. Always figured they were like coyotes and everybody was on board that the only good one was a dead one. This sounds like something I could get into.

    While 44/40 and 45 Colt are very similar they are not the same. The 44/40 was induced parallel to the 45 Colt not from the 45 Colt. The 45 Colt was designed specifically for the 1873 Army. It was a folded case design using the Benet style...
