    Thanks for the update. I've never tried one, but I'd like to have a 444 marlin. Kind of a middle ground between the 44 mag and the 45/70. Course I'd like a marlin 1894 too. I ain't hard to please long as it has a lever on it's belly.

    Freetrapper, yessir they are fine for a tube mag. As a general rule, anything you get in 35 Remington will be safe because the majority of rifles chambered for it are tube fed. Roundnose and flatnose is safe for a tube magazine. Hornady flex tip...

    I use graphite. IE a carpenters pencil. Take the sprue plate off and color the underside and the pivot hole well, then color the alignment pins as well as the top the mould. When using the mould, if you smear lead between the mould top and...

    I prefer vintage "modern" gun personally, but I like traditional muzzleloader also. I don't down someone for using an inline but I agree that most do it for the extended season. I am not big on bow hunting but I do respect the effort and skill...

    Well I got a small 6 point buck earlier. I started by cutting up the belly. It wasn't pretty but I was able to loosen the guts and all the organs, cut the wind pipe from the outside and get everything down to the bung remaining. The book...

    Neat, I'd like to see the old girl. I'd think a gun that was made in 1911 wouldn't have any burrs left.

    I probably would go Redding, mostly because of the mixed comments that you hear about Lyman's customer service. Other than that, Lyman makes nice equipment.

    Wet tumbling get the brass incredibly clean. Most of us substitute some type of automotive wash and wax in place of the Dawn. The cases get so clean that they tarnish pretty quick and the wash and wax leaves a protective coating on them. When I...

    I'm a loyal Dillon customer. Their presses work well without having to be tinkered with and you have that famous Dillon support if you ever need it. I kind of always wanted a Star, just because, but I doubt that I will ever get one.

    Guess it depends on if they shoot different with any of your bore conditions. My guns are always dirty. I clean them, and it don't take long I shoot it again. I don't clean the bore thoroughly though. A patch with hoppes, a few strokes of the...

    Lots of times it's a few months between casting sessions and my ladle rusts up. I'm lazy I spose, I should store it better instead of leaving it on the bench to rust. I have left it in the pot before, but for some reason don't care for doing...

    I like both carbon and stainless. For a knife I'm going to primarily whittle with, carbon is preferred. Such as my Old Timer 34OT. It takes a fine edge and holds it well, flat ground, it does well on wood. Problem is, I carry it a lot, and...
