    Rockrat I have a .357mag Handi rifle and it had me considering it. I have seen just barrels go for 4-500$ this last year. Get the whole gun for barrel price, that is win win in my book.

    I have several Allen slip on ammo holders on my H&R Handi rifles. And I made a leather holder for my Win 94AE that holds 9 in leather loops. Plus it has a sling with 6 more nice tight holders. With a tube full and all those, that should be...

    Ebay is about your best bet. Saw a .357max there a couple of days ago. Keep searching gunbroker also. They are getting significantly harder to find as those who like them hang on to them. http://www.gunbroker.com/item/715230810

    Well I just went from 15 to 16. .45 colt handi rifle barrel. As to enjoy, I enjoy loading all of them, but some tend to be either more fun to shoot or more trouble free to load. Have to admit loading 200 .45colt rounds did not take me long...

    I don't stick mine in the pot anymore. I sent the end of the mold (closed) on the rim and slope it at maybe 75 degree angle. Then pour maybe 3 ladle's full down the bottom to warm the mold. Then start pouring. It will take a pour or 2 to warm...

    Not sure if this helps, but I have bought lead from both RedRiver and theCaptain. Both are very good to deal with with IMO reasonable prices. TheCaptain normally has an active thread with lead for sale.

    Webmonkey nailed it IMO. Buy a new box for the Taurus, keep them marked and separated. They should fire form to fit.
