    Yea, I am thinking a lower charge is a good thing. I found out how to actually do some tweaking on the trigger spring versus just dropping a leg. I guess you could call it the almost poor mans trigger job. Lol I plan on going through my action the...

    Weird. It looked fine when I posted it, but when I just checked again you were correct. I deleted them and put them back in, maybe it will be fine now.

    I got a chance to shot last night. I primarily wanted to just test velocity with the W296 and 290gr LFN(Lyman devastator with solid tip). I should have taken a picture of them, but they look just like the devastator minus a hollow point. :) I...

    I shot by pistol last night and remembered to take a few pictures before I cleaned it. I think it should help visualize what a constriction does to a lead boolit. Not the best pictures, but should be good enough. Notice there is no...

    I spent most of the day yesterday searching the web for how this job is done on Rugers. Seems pretty straightforward, as long as you FULLY understand how the sear/hammer interface and how the action works. Once I got that down, then the way people...

    My recently purchased SBHBH showed some leading toward the barrel also, but not until I had fired a lot through it. The thread constriction will show up with leaving lead in your bore - but usually the telltale sign is lead build up just a little...

    I am no expert at any of this, just an arm chair internet wanna be gunsmith/shooter. :) Taylor throat reaming is done to the forcing cone. I've never had it done, just heard its the only way to truly remove a tight constriction - plus I think...

    Yea, where the top rib of the barrel meets the frame. You can see just one corner of the barrel rib above the frame slightly, and the other corner below. You could also feel it where the ejector housing meets the frame. Its not enough for me to...

    I got out and sighted my scope in on my bisley hunter yesterday afternoon. Man, talk about the trigger creep being even worse when you are trying to focus in on a shot and squeeze one off. It's crazy how you do not realize just how much of an...

    As a new owner of one myself I’ll second the fact you’ll love shooting it. I have heard that with 296/110 .5gr increments are enough, no need to go any closer with development. I suppose that you just wouldn’t be able to tell the difference in...

    One of the first things I did was the "poor man's trigger job". I figured it couldn't hurt. I tested the trigger before I put the grips back on just to make sure it was good. I think it helped. But I still do notice that slight bit of creep...

    On a side note, the grip feels way different today when I picked it up and handling it to get the scope on straight. I think I had convinced myself that my trigger finger had to be at a 90-degree angle to the face of the trigger, which meant I...

    Got the scope in and on today. I know a lot of people think its a horror to see a scope on a single action, but I honestly think it makes this gun look even better. I had my mind set on the nickel version of the scope, but I ran across some...

    Thanks for the replies guys. I figured that most people with them are still happy with them. Just for clarification, it will be the hunter model not just the super blackhawk one. That was one of the hardest things to weed through when doing...

    I am next to positive these are XR3 size grips. When laid on a 3" x 3" square they seem to match exactly with what the XR3 size is. I just know they were bought for a NMBH I have and they did not fit. I do not have a XR3 size frame myself to try...

    I appriciate it Wagnerwerks. Turns out you are correct, I assumed CVA extended their lifetime warranty, but I just looked it up and sure enough, it is only to the original purchaser. This will be good to know for future buys. I did not tell him...

    I think you may not have read the entire thread, (which is ok), because you are really taking some things out of context and make some statements about the events that simply are not true. CVA was ready and willing to send me an RMA, they never...

    So then have you looked and seen that Hodgdon says for a 325 grain BTB cast boolit the max charge is 22 grains? Why would someone think that my load of 21 or 21.5 grains would be way over max and be damaging to the gun? I am not sure if you are...

    Are you serious or just trying to rouse a fight? I have talked to several people so far. I have told them the exact reason I am selling it. It's only your opinion that I may have damaged the gun by firing the hand loads I made - that were...

    Here are my thoughts about why I am getting rid of the gun. It is not because I hate it. It's not because I am upset with CVA. It's not because I do not think it can shoot accurately. The reason I have decided to sell it is that I often make...

    No. Gun is in the process of being sold. I’m not spending any more money on it. I have no doubt that either factory loads would work, or if they didn’t that CVA would fix the gun so they did. Either way, it’s not what I wanted the gun for. I am...
