    Use what the gun shoots the most accurate with, since no matter what you shoot it with, shot placement is KEY. Many here subscribe to wanting complete penetration so the animal bleeds out of both sides, and it will in fact run less if it runs at...

    You could use it in the long colt cylinder, just crimp in the top groove.

    I didn't click on the link, but the tone of some of these comments posted, and then the mention of Norfolk, VA, that could only mean ONE dealer..... With the initals of RH. Am I onto the right track here??

    I would say yes based on the fact that the danger of downloading it comes when you have less than about 70% or 75% case fill. Correct me if I am wrong, but what can happen is with a lower volume of powder in the case, it will lay in the bottom and...

    If I know the guy REALLY good, and have sat beside him and watched and listened, while he ran his press, or even better, MY press, I might shoot his handloads. Other than that? No way. It's not that I can't or won't trust anyone else's loads,...

    Okay, so it is "Awareness and Intelligence" you want? Here's a good heads up on both.. DO NOT USE FROG LUBE IN THE STRIKER CHANNEL OR ON OR NEAR THE FIRING PIN OF AN AUTOLOADER! THIS is what FROG LUBE will cause to happen! You must be made...

    I think you would get tired of the shoulder rig in the first hunnert miles. I carried a commander in an Alessi CM rig that was very comfortable and very driver-friendly seated, standing or otherwise:

    What we have is skinny little doberman sized deer that like to hide behind trees so you don't get a good shot, but no matter, 22.5gr of H110 will push that Lee 300gr RF boolit right through the tree AND the deer and you get to fill your tags anyway!...

    Many years ago I used to say "you can build better than you can buy" and it was true. Since then, the world has exploded with 1911s in every tier of quality, and expense. There are more ways now to arrive at a nice 1911 than there ever has been. ...

    I thought about doing that to a .430" die, I needed a .432" and Lee isn't taking any custom orders. Got lucky and found a .432" on ebay, NIB, probably Ranch Dog leftovers, so I got that one and sold the .430" which worked out great.. Good to hear...

    With the 430-310-RF boolit in my 7 1/2" SBH, I found the sweet spot to be just a tad above supersonic so 1120-1170f/s is right in there for that gun. Thank you 44man for all your insights and posts on this caliber and boolit. I also found that you...

    I sent them in a new Vaquero in 1993 or 94 because it shot 8-10" left and 4" low @25yds. Got it back, assumed they fixed it, took it in the woods and flat out missed a nice 8pt facing me @20yds. I was mad. Took the gun, shot it again it was bad...

    1018 is still construction grade steel, a general all purpose type steel with 60,000psi tensile strength. A36 we used a LOT in the shipyards, it is very common. Both of these can be made to work, but I don't see much longevity in either alloy. ...

    After it is fired it wouldn't be an accurate measurement of the bore since it would expand upon impact with the backstop. One way to measure the cylinder throats, is try to put a .452" boolit into the throat from the front. If that won't fit,...

    If somebody can figure out a way to make soft lube using frog lube, you could lube the boolit and season the bore with every shot fired. I would definitely be game to trying that. It could be to the bore what RainX is to a windshield.. Good...
