    I got my first ever infraction for posting that these were built like a brick "blank" house. This tool is the standard that all others fall way short of IMO. Once you use one... there is no going back.

    I went back and changed the thread display option to a longer time and was able to bring it up. Wow nicely done. Very well built.

    No question anything in a revolver but my #1 would be 38spl followed by moon clipped 45acp then a toss up between a 500 and 44mag. For non potty trained i shoot a few 9mm. Sometimes I like to sprinkle in some 22's

    Having a good reputation around town and with your local gun dealers goes a long way. Also patience is key, I have waited 2+ years for items after casually mentioning that I was interested if they were ever thinking of parting with the item. Most of...

    You funny, The addiction makes It necessary to try to shoot at least once a week. This past weekend was 6 with 8 mph wind and I still got 225 rounds off.

    I shot one this past weekend. A friend was able to get one last Thursday (He works a the LGS) The temperature was 6 so honestly no real serious testing but I can say it never hiccuped once with at least 100 rounds through it. We used three...

    I agree with Jeepy, I use all old/new 2400 in my 22 hornets and find little if any difference. If the powder was stored properly and unopened (smells good, looks good) I use it. If opened, use it as nutrition for your lawn, no questions.

    Both are the same. The Hercules is prior to being sold to Alliant. At least this has always been my understanding. I interchange them regular basis as I've picked up some old stock a few times.

    C'mon fellas, step right up! If you haven't held a Miha mold in your hands then you don't know what you are missing. The machining is absolutely perfect. The cost for these are incredibly low considering the quality of the mold, the time it takes to...

    I associate blackpowder with super-soft or pure lead. The only guy I know that uses blackpowder shoots roof flashing lead and does not add anything to it. He shoots all old muskets and flintlocks etc. Newer rifles I am sure can handle more than the...

    I'd vote for the 4" but you probably can't go wrong with ether one. Sorry not much help. I'm a sucker for the old Smiths and would probably buy one and put the second one on lay-a-way.

    I've always seen a correlation between the amount of roll-crimp on magnum loads vs brass life. Some guys like to roll-crimp the bag out of them. Combine that with a bell and case life drops off quicker than the taper crimp cartridges in my...

    First off wecome. I think you'll enjoy your stay. Range scrap will give you around 80% of the total weight after melting and cleaning and a perfectly good alloy for the pistols you mentioned. Approxamently a 10.5 BHN. If you just get the lead WW's...

    I don't know about being brave... Maybe just short on smarts. I'd think I would like a 200 meter tunnel to shoot in with stable temperature and no wind however I'll continue to make due with what we have. I feel quite lucky to have as nice a place...
