    GoodOlBoy replied to a thread Unusual cartridges in Our Town
    I've got a single 38 case (wish I had a loaded round because people don't believe me that it isn't just a cut case) that is about 1/4-3/8 inches long. It came from an uncle who had a 38 detective (don't remember the brand) that had the shortest...

    GoodOlBoy started a thread Social Anxiety... in Our Chapel
    I have social anxiety related to my PTSD and depression. I'm not confident with how I look these days due to all the weight I gained after the cancer surgery. I could use some prayers. I don't know how to get past this social anxiety, it is so...

    Not a "no" primer hole but FWIW I had a dozen or more very old vintage 38 special cases out of a box of several hundred I was given that every single one of them the primer hole was badly off center. Can't recall the brand, but I can tell you this....

    That's a nice collection of them you've got! Popular or Birch would make sorta sense, and would explain the light coloration and strength of the wood. Hadn't heard of the ammonia version of bending wood, but that don't surprise me much. Any...

    Not to leave anybody out, I'm really enjoying what I'm reading, and if any of my replies seem "aggressive" that isn't my intent by any stretch of the imagination and if I am coming across that way I do apologize. Larry Gibson I like that idea...

    I appreciate the link, and it is a curious item, but I am suspicious and my neck hairs are standing on end. Considering most of the video, and a good portion of the advertised kit show Lee Classic Loader parts (which I already have), AND at no...

    If the rust remover worked, cast one more in it and measure. As has been said 45-70 should be .457-459 depending. If it is still casting at 449 it was not for 45-70 and as mentioned MIGHT have been a 43 Spanish. Also besides measurement check the...

    Now see that is along the line I was thinking too (hoping Wayne will chime in). I thought about reversing it though. take four pieces of wood, match of the corners, round off and shape the outside after chucking it to a drill somehow. Drill out...

    I agree that I would not be afraid to shoot them, because (as was pointed out) corrosive ammunition just means you have to do a good job cleaning. I also agree that there is something historic about them that will be lost. I would NOT try to pull...

    Yes you most likely could, and you certainly could if speer ever made a .457 or .458 capsule to go along with the pistol .45 capsule for shot loads. However part of the appeal of the wood capsule is the historic value of it, AND it would be easy to...

    Couple of things that just dawned on me. I'd be curious what Wayne Smith (who seems as eager as me to figure these out :p ) and anybody else would think. #1 wonder what wood was used? Heavy and dense hardwood? Light softwood? #2 wonder what...

    I ran across a new one to me the other day while going on a walk about the internet. At some point in the long ago past the US Govt made "Forager" rounds for the 45-70. These had wood capsules with birdshot in them, and I even spotted one mention...

    I used to shoot on a private range with a guy who would take all of his 44 special brass and "supe them up" after the fourth reload then leave them where they lay. I would find them and smash them before putting them in a scrap brass bucket. I...
