    My thought was that I wished they made a #2. Never mind what Uberti chambered them for. I just wish they also made a #2 action. Okay, second question... Other than case head on a 38-55, which is smaller than, say a 44WCF, why is the modern...

    Yeah, $10 is a lot more than most of the gun shows I attend, but most of those are small towns, which I love. Still, $10 to keep me that entertained for a couple of hours seems cheap to me. That show had a ton of reloading and bullet casting...

    I wish and hope they are. But, I think it is just the one.

    MOA replied to a thread Starline 375 Win? in Leverguns
    Good question Dmr50, I'm hoping that their caliber specific brass is virgin created. Not a bastardized brass from some other caliber like what buffalo does. I emailed them last week re some 348 winny, they said it was 12 weeks out, left them a note...

    Now that the season is over and Spring is about here, been noticing that the rabbits are back out. I don't hunt or shoot them because I never really cared for the tatse that much, plus I enjoy seeing them in the yard. We have several that come in...

    He's right about the bolt tool as it's difficult......almost disassemble it otherwise. It's not impossible, but unless you really like blood blisters and have a lot of time on your's totally doable! Ask me how I...

    And... source an M1 Carbine bolt tool too if you continue to shoot steel cased ammo, cause you'll need it!

    The Lyman 311359 and the RCBS 30-115SP are your friend here. The steel cased Russian ammo is not so much your friend, hard on the extractor. N-110 is the best powder I have ever used in the M1 Carbine. H110 and IMR4227 runs a close second place. I...

    I got an LBT almost 30 years ago and have friends with the LEE and Cabintree. I like the very quick direct readout and great repeat-ability of the LBT.

    I grew up on the east coast (S.C.) and if I ever did have to move back east of the Mississippi, it would be there. Had to drive east about a year ago to pick up my son from the Camp Lejune area, couldn't get out of all that congestion and **** fast...

    That bullet is a great deer bullet, I and several others on here have used it successfully with no excessive meat damage. You cast it way too hard, pushed it too fast and shot something that wasn't realistic at point blank range and then call the...

    The .22 LR drought got me to looking at other things and was what got me into casting for the .22 Hornet, I bought a Hornet specifically to do that. In retrospect, I might have done better trying to do it with my .223. My old Savage 110 has the...

    This is my thought. I have a few sinker molds, one that casts egg sinkers and one that casts tear drop sinkers, both of various weights. I think I have a jig mold somewhere too from the days I used to use a lot of light jigs (never did get...

    Been giving this project more thought and just read this one again. I have a Harbor freight tool stand, cost $5 and has that cross piece. I also have an old Pacific C press I got for $15 that sizes on the up stroke. I think this is coming...

    Your round balls should be cast from pure, or pure with just a touch of tin for fill-out if needed.

    I used a short .54 barrel on my Hawken one year and killed a little buck with it. Used a TC Maxi Hunter mold and yes, it did indeed kick hard. I was young and dumb and probably used way more Pyrodex than was necessary, especially given the ranges...
