    Bullet fit is king. HT adds some size to your cast. Lube won't. Hence the leading. So you either need to cast/size them a few thousands larger, or stick with the HT.

    Thank you Traffer for that post. Personally I like them, good enough fit and finish for what it costs. Mine has given me no troubles at all. It was just frustrating because I was feeding it the wrong ammo. But that is on ME, not the gun. ...

    I used to be a die hard Remington Fan. Dumped em back in the 80's when they changed the lube on their .22lr. And 870 Wingmasters were no longer available, it was all 870 express, or similar dumbed down versions. **** wood, **** fit/finish, nothing I...

    Why? As in a clip point or drop point? You want an inward curved blade?

    Depends on what you are looking for. I have picked up 3 from Gun Broker over the last 2 years. Pair of H&R 2.5" double action in .32sw long, one blued, one nickle. And a NIB Ruger New Model Single Six in .32 H&R mag. That one should be easy...

    Alloy does make a huge difference. I tried cutting the clip on wheel weights from 100% down, about the time I hit 20% and the rest range scrap and pure things started going funky. 50/50 was ok, and is what I would recomend unless you have over 400...

    Agree with Capn Morgan, and Rattlesnake. If your reloader has a spring to compress powder/wad, USE IT. Whatever you are doing to seal that brass hull you need something that works better, has more resistance. And I agree with Capn Morgan...

    Well mine is 22 years old, still in good shape. But you have to remember that you can buy 3 or 4 of those Heritage single sixes for what a single ruger will cost you. Ruger will have better sights, good fit and finish. All depends on what you...
