    Up here in Canada prices are all over the map depending on which powders you are buying. Most are over $40 per pound and many up to nearly $50 per pound. There are some imported powders that are running much less and are $130 Canadian if bought in...

    Reverend Al replied to a thread Clam Chowder? in Cookin' Recipe's
    Took me a while to get around to it, but finally made a big pot of Clam Chowder using the recipe above since we have my brother in law and mother in law out to visit with us from Manitoba. Came out great (as far as I'm concerned) and it was a big...

    Took it out today for the first time with some ammo supplied by the previous owner and shot it at 100 yards. All of the low shots and fliers off to the right of the main group are all my fault because they were "Oh ****!" shots. This rifle has the...

    I haven't been brave enough to try to take it apart yet, but I assume that the lever under the forend unlatches the barrel assembly for removal while the lever behind the trigger guard unlocks the trigger group and breech block. I've sent a message...

    Up for grabs is a pair of Oehler Skyscreen II's that I had for my old Oehler model 33 Chronograph. I updated and bought a Labradar and sold my old Oehler 33 last year. Of course I was digging through a bunch of my stuff recently and found a spare...

    One of my New Year's resolutions for 2019 is to get out and shoot FAR more often, hopefully at least once and possibly twice a week (since I'm retired and have the time), but our local weather hasn't been co-operating much until just lately so I...

    Reverend Al replied to a thread reloading 44-40 in Leverguns
    I've had a "love / hate" relationship with .44-40 for many years and I currently still have about 5 guns chambered in that cartridge. I love shooting old, traditional calibres in old, original guns, but the thin case mouth / crimping issues with...

    Reverend Al replied to a thread Distractions... in Our Town
    You're looking at this all wrong! Now that you have a nice .3685" sizer die you need to buy some sort of 9.3 calibre rifle since it would be the perfect size for cast boolits in one of those ... right? :Bright idea:

    I've loaded a nearly identical load for use in my Browning B-78 .45-70 when hunting. I load 10 grains of Unique then seat a .45 calibre gas check on the powder, add about 1/2 oz of # 7 1/2 shot and then seat another .45 calibre gas check upside...

    I hope you don't have any clearance issues loading the .40-82's in the Martini action, but I sure do like your choice of cartridge as it's one that has always interested and intrigued me. I originally had an 1886 Winchester in .40-82 mfg in 1889...

    Not sure about the Uberti SAA clones, but my S&W 624's will shoot pretty much anything that I put in them for boolits and powders, they're just not fussy at all. (One of the reasons that I love the .44 Special cartridge so much!) Most of my...

    That was my thought too ... you'll have to look carefully at your background area to see where any misses or ricochet's might go. Big boolits can go a long way ... and still do a lot of damage.
