    I believe I'll be in m-tecs canoe, it depends on the rifle and the use it's going to see. Most of my hunting rifles are multiple barrel combination guns, drillings or double rifles so for those firearms any more than 3 shots fired comparable to a...

    sharps4590 replied to a thread 40-82 questions in Leverguns
    I've had an '86 in 40-82 I guess for close to 25 years. Back then I bought Bertram brass which needed worked down to fit my rifle. As both the 40-82 and 45-90 are 2.4, as evidently you've learned, I don't see why necking down the Starline brass...

    Yes sir, the roll crimpers do a fine job on plastic hulls, it's all I ever used. I don't know that it would have occurred to me to glue in OSC's in plastic hulls. I tried gluing them in with brass hulls but have since gone to waterglass.

    Of those listed I chose the venerable 45-70. Neither of my two favorites were listed but one is not all that commonly used today and the other is obscure but still around, if barely. The 32-20 and the 40-82. I have a 92 and an 86 so chambered. ...

    As with marlinman I'm aware of the 360/2 1/4 but not a 380. COTW doesn't list it nor does Donnely's.

    sharps4590 replied to a thread 9.3x72r in Factory Rifles
    Boy did I stick my foot in my mouth....up to my thigh. I had forgotten the rifle was a break open which eliminates the Ideal as it is a falling block. Most likely a Roux. Sorry 'bout that.

    I think it was my 1908 Mannlicher/Schoenauer. If I can't remember for certain it's been too long and I need to find something I am interested in and can afford....:(

    sharps4590 replied to a thread 9.3x72r in Factory Rifles
    It's "kiplauf" and from what I understand that means a top lever rifle. From the description this one is on a Roux action, the operating lever being beneath the trigger guard. As far as I know those fell into the generic term of stalking rifle. ...
