    I buy Jeff's molds when I need an odd size. I modified a side cutter to snip off the sprue.

    That's all you need with a pistol that is set up correctly. I ----personally can't see 30/40$$ for a Mag. + how many people let a 30 or 40 $$ mag hit the ground when they practice reloads. Guy told me once--Oh I will do it if I have to. He...

    I had this exact same experience in my .45-70 Marlin 25 years ago with the RCBS 320 gr. gas check bullet and 4198 loaded to around 1800 fps. I had to quit the powder and go to SR 4759 and that fixed it. The 4198 just wouldn't ignite properly for...

    missionary5155 replied to a thread Opinions wanted in Leverguns
    Good evening I have a Marlin (15 years) and the Henry. They both are accurate and function well as lever rifles. But the Marlin is very finicky about certain bullet noses. The Marling also shoots best with Fat nosed cast due to the strange lead...

    Good evening That was very interesting ! Nice work . I do wonder what a "chunk gun" could do with a perfect RB ?? That would be a very good test platform to determine whether your work was indeed "worth the effort". I do not have a chunk gun...

    Good afternoon Our carbine is a early 1865 56-50 and there is no issue with the extractor lever pulling fired brass out. The 56-50 Starline brass does have a minimum diameter rim. We may have a tighter chamber than other carbine so the rim is...

    Good morning WTB at least 19 (I have one) and up to 50 Starline 50-100 brass. Mine is 2.4" in length and came new with the rifle. If you need some 56-50 Spencer, 50 Alaskan 50-70 (all Starline new) or others we could do a swap. Mike in...

    Howdy toot Been out shooting our 1865 Spencer some before returning it to hibernation at the local museum. Our Starline brass all measure 1.15 and OAL that cycles in our carbine (#98x) is 1.63-1.65". This length may vary a bit in yours but you...

    Good afternoon Original Spencers can still be found for reasonable prices if you are willing to do a lot of searching. I do not view $1200 for a Springfield made 1865 56-50 as a whole lot more than what the repros will cost. Dixie and Taylors...

    I love my 1945 Model 12, but my 1931 Ithaca SXS usually gets the nod. It's choked Mod. and Full and every so often it can still go straight on the Trap range. Carries like a 20 and hits like a 12...

    I've been shooting an LBT 375 gr. LFN in mine since I got it in 1985. Extremely accurate and death and destruction on any animal I've shot with it.
