    What's the problem with the twist they used in the last batch of CLs? I kinda like the half mag, it looks uh you know, classic. That weaver base thingy sounds good.

    I just finished a modern Sherlock Holmes book, (not Arthur Conan Doyle) and when Holmes suggested Watson bring his revolver the webley- pryse was mentioned. Don't know if this was the 19th century shooter Watson carried in the Doyle books.

    My 1917 has a bit of pitting also and has recently been treated with bore coat but not shot to see if it will smooth out. It has shot well in the past with hard cast bullets but hope to dial it in with a soft lead alloy with gas check or at least a...

    Leaping lizards Gashopper, so no thoughts on a fix? I appreciate your attempt at War and Peace but trying to impress the peanut gallery wasn't much help. Maybe someone else has a thought on the problem with my shooter. Now carry on.

    Thanks for the onfo Taz, ditto Out. Love the holster Dutch commercial or home made? "Mom's Colts 1917" is a great beginning to a sentence, Hart. I have some loaded approaching max suggested and increased the crimp.

    Just my unworthy opinion, but the 358156 and 358429 have never given me an abundance of accuracy at .38 spec. velocities but loaded in .38 cases to skeeter and elmer specs I do quite well with a model 28 and a rifle chambered for the .357. So in...

    I purchased a bunch of .45 rimmed cases for my .45 shooter mentioned above. The throats measure .454+ a bit. I'm using 454190 which casts to .454, the bullet drags some when pushing it thru the chamber. I used accurate #5 6.3gr. overall length...
