    Here's the deal, I'm in the process of assembling a half stock play ML just for fun and I bought a used T/C .50 cal barrel (15/16) supposedly from a Renegade on fleebay but it didn't come with the hooked tang. There are several tangs from T/C...

    I think the shooter you witnessed has something missing because I have hit a 16" steel plate from 400 yd with my old Ruger M-77RS with my own 125gr. handloads so I know it can be done and I'm an average shooter. With a little more range time with...

    Random question about part compatibility between T/C's Renegade and Hawken rifles. Both have hooked tang breech systems but are they the same plug/breech for both rifles?

    I have to agree that the recoil from real black is different than the subs. Seems to be more of a shove than a kick. If I could get real BP in my area at the store I would use it exclusively but I recently bought a can of Pyrodex RS because my old...

    Changed my Dillon 550 over to 45acp from 380 while the pot and moulds were getting up to temp last night. Today I cleaned about 1200 pieces of brass and inspected the boolits I cast last night. Waiting for a banker to get off his backside so I'll...

    Al has always treated me quite well and I have several of his moulds and other products. I've had one of his moulds on the shelf for a couple of years and finally got to cast with it for the first time a few days ago. I've had a few of Al's moulds...

    Worked at a shop awhile back where someone (???) adapted a similar gun to use shop compressed air. Seem to recall some folks use scuba tanks as well.

    I can't take opioids because I took them too long to manage chronic back pain and risk a very unpleasant withdrawal if I take even one or two. That didn't stop a dentist (several years ago) from prescribing 30 (!!!!) tablets after a difficult...

    Cast a few hundred each of NOE 453-200's, Accurate 40-180C's and Lee 452-255's. Cast the NOE boolits because I needed practice ammo for my carry gun, the Accurate 38WCF boolits in memory of John Kort and I have no idea why I cast the Lee 45 Colt...

    I've had this 4-cavity mould sitting on the shelf for a year or three, finally ran out of 45acp ammo so it was time to see how NOE's copy of the H&G 68 works. In a word; great! I did the heat-cycle break-in process when the mould arrived but today...

    Love those "ribs", stores around here used to call them "country style" but now they call them loin chops or something similar. Always cheap, always good. Just look a little funny but that's OK with me!

    I take pics of good groups to send to my shooting buddy if he cancels on me. ;-) I used to label & save targets but they piled up and I never looked at them. I'll also take pics to help with my load notebook when I get home.

    Thanks for re-posting that, pietro. I've noticed he hasn't been posting much in the past several weeks but hoped he was just busy. Hope you don't mind that I re-posted over on the Winchester Collectors' forum, he's going to be missed there as well.

    Mine is a sporter weight rifle so I don't enjoy shooting it off a bench after a few rounds. It's fun to rattle the roof over the firing line but I have other rifles that I enjoy shooting more. I upgraded my wimp pad since I fired it last, old one is...

    Actually pulled the cover off my Dillon 550 and loaded 200 rounds of .380acp over the weekend. Hate loading those tiny things but I've given up finding any 45acp practice rounds, time to pour a big pile of boolits and load them. Figured since the...

    Glockfan, you are right. This topic would have led to WW3 in certain other forums. In those forums, folks hang their pride on the brand names that sit on their bench. This is why I chose to ask here. Perfect boolits are the thing of pride in this...

    Hands down, it just looks like Dillon is the way to go. Thanks everyone. I'm glad this didn't turn into a "chevy vs. ford" type thread. I'm no longer concerned about not having a fifth hole for an M die. It looks like Dillon has that part figured...

    My rifle is a Traditions Kentucky rifle in .50 with a slow twist, 1-60 I think. I've been curious about how the Lee REAL would shoot in it but didn't want to buy a mold just to find it didn't work.
