    Good morning and Congratulations !! There is nothing cheap about finding lead, a mold, casting the perfect slug, sizing, load development and finally dropping the hammer. That is a serious hunter who gets back to the roots of the pioneer...

    I got my first Bulldog, a 3", in '75 and added the 4" Target Bulldog soon afterward. I worked with everything available at the time, from the Lee 116 gr WC (!) to their 255 gr SWC, including the 208 WC, 210 SWCHP and 210 SWC, and including a 429421....

    Hi GWS, Not sure what went wrong with your print. When I printed mine, I did it horizontal as well, and it worked fine. I usually have the opposite problem in that my internal threads tend to be too tight and I need to scale them up slightly to get...

    I had to get into my stash of WCC military 9X19 to load a large order. I HAVE a stash of that one type of brass because I ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS separate headstamps no matter the caliber. This prevents what you're running into by feeling forced into...

    I don't believe I have any once-fired, but I have scads of Federal that, after their first firing, were used for .38 SPL level match wadcutter loads. Problem is I also have scads of .38 SPL. I would trade 1:1 for .32-20, .44 Russian/SPL, .45...

    You didn't say whether you were loading them for a Carbine or for a Blackhawk or AutoMag III. I separate mine into rifle and pistol loads (I treat the Blackhawk like a skinny-chambered .38/357) and use rifle primers for the carbine loads and pistol...

    Been hunting about and no drawings yet But just left the Uberti web and they claim their rifle is an exact copy of the Winchester . The low # Chappi rifles were a maybe OK. The later rifles (past 1000) were much better We have two ( 50-95 and...

    Hi Tyler, No sir. Unfortunately, they don't scale correctly. At this point, I think it best that you keep on working with your large body version and not worry about integrating with the original body design. If folks want to continue to use the...

    Like Bill, a 1905 4th change M&P 32-20. Mine is a 4" which was really hard to find amongst all the 5" and 6" ones. The bore seems to have escaped the "32-20 bulge" curse and really loves almost any boolit I put through it. I hunted it up because I...

    I don't relish the mess of mixing epoxy or JB Weld. When I get tired of tapping them back on, I just drip some gorilla super glue down the wood, smear some on the metal, tap it on and leave it a bit to cure. Haven't had one loosen back up. Ed <><
