    I cannot understand interest in 357 as a rifle round. 44 Mag and 45Colt are both a better choice in my opinion. And I would be after the 16" Rossi R92 as the value for money proposition. The 38/357 R92 that I owned would never feed 38 Spl...

    TB in 444 Marlin: 1) Load TB to touch bullet base but NOT be compressed. Weigh Load. That's your max load. 2) Multiply by 0.7 That's your minimum load. Work up from there for accuracy. In my experience with TB, lower extreme velocity spreads in...

    RPRNY replied to a thread 35-30 or 38-55? in Leverguns
    No longer own my Glenfield 35-30/30 but mine was 1:14 twist. I liked ut, but a friend liked it more. He has taken 3-4 white tail with it and I believe took it hog hunting in TX. I always fire formed brass. Dies were readily available from CH4D and I...

    These are the 45 Govt. revolver cases used by the Army when both the Schofield and 45 (Long) Colt were in use. The Sxhofield chamber was shorter to skirt the Colt patent. The "45 Cowboy Special" moniker is because of their use in CAS/SASS where...

    Recently came into a Savage 340 first year of production. No A suffix, not tapped for scope, and no round cap on the bolt extension. Fairly nice American walnut stock. Put a Williams peep sight on it. Getting 2560 fps with 37 grs LVR and a 147 grs...

    RPRNY replied to a thread Hogs vs deer in Hunting with CB's
    Anything that will kill deer will kill hogs. The only difference is that while you are very unlikely to find any decent human that would shoot a deer with a 223 and let it die a slow, lingering death, quite decent folks who have been plagued by hogs...

    311284 is very effective in the 30-40 out to 300 yards and is an ideal bullet for elk, so there is no reason at all that it wouldn't be as effective in the 30-06 case. Match alloy to desired terminal velocity and work backwards to design load. In my...

    It was the bolt not closing all the way. With the turned down bolt handle it needed quite a deep furrow. Works perfectly now. I also fit a Featherweight Mauser Timney trigger. This took quite a bit of fitting in my rifle, lengthening the seat...

    It was indeed that the stock needed a deeper furrow for the turned down bolt handle. Took the opportunity to also fit a Timney trigger, the featherweight, and it took some fitting in my rifle. All good now, thanks for the help.

    This is it. Good to anneal first. I use shotgun powder, cornmeal filler and a wax plug for fireforming. Super easy and a sure fit when you're done.

    40 S&W is as easy to load as any strong brass straight wall case mouth headspacing cartridge. There is absolutely nothing unique or tricky about it. Other than charge and bullet weight differences, there is nothing to discuss...

    RPRNY replied to a thread C&B revolver accuracy in Muzzleloading.
    Why is obturation and the elastic quality of pure lead so hard to grasp? Which part of it isnít readily understandable? Why would removing material from the walls of cylinders made of unknown steel quality in which near explosions of black powder...

    RPRNY replied to a thread C&B revolver accuracy in Muzzleloading.
    If using the proper BHN ball or conical, which in a cap and ball revolver should mean 6- 8 BHN, pure lead or near as, there should be sufficient obturation for the ball or conical to fill out to groove depth. Removing material from the cylinder...
