    The Unertil would have the perfect look, or an old Fecker. An old Weaver V8 with external adjustments was as close as I could afford. Mine is a 25-20 and has an assortment of holes and came with a Redfield windage adjustable mount. It has had a...

    I have two old Herter's measures, one has a 1/4 in. chamber the other has a 3/8 in. chamber. The small one will not throw consistent charges of Unique, it is fine with BE or ball powder. The larger one is best for Unique. I just went back and tried...

    Thank you sir, That clears things up. I got out a loupe and looked at the picture on the instruction sheet, if correct it shows a 190. According to the Lee chart the 190 does 21.5 grs of Green Dot, that's close to what I got. That is not far from...

    After I read your post I got my 12 ga loader out and looked at it again. It came with a metal adjustable shot measure. The picture on the instructions shows a plastic powder dipper, probably a black one. The charge sheet is missing so I don't know...

    One of my best shots was a crow at 258 long paces across a pasture. I had crawled up a creek bank and laid the rifle on a washed out root. There was a big popular tree about 175 yds across a field from the house. In the fall those big blackbirds...
