    I vote for .375 Win. With a "straight" case (long neck) it's an easy one to load with a good selection of cast. The cases are re-purposed Starline .38-55, 2.085" long, which fit perfectly in my lever's .375 Win chamber with .020 to spare. I suspect...

    For some years I had hunted deer with a Super Blackhawk, shooting the Lyman 429215. Cast of WW metal, gas checked and lubed, it weighed 220gr. At 1100-1200 fps (estimated from load book), it never failed to exit deer, making a cookie cutter hole...

    Well, there doesn't seem to be any legal requirements before hanging a sign and claiming to be one. Like the guy with the Apex House Painting sign on his truck, last week he might have been the president of Apex Lawn Care. I think it's a Let The...

    I looked at a New Vaquero in .45 Colt and the chamber walls looked scary thin. I'm looking for an Old Vaquero so I can shoot the "Ruger-only loads", same as in the Rossi '92. And I like the extra heft. The oldies don't seem to become available...

    I have no doubt the condition at the muzzle could be improved sufficiently to allow good use of PP boolits. As mentioned by 303 Guy, the idea is to smooth off the edges of the pits and remove their ability to carve off shavings of boolit metal. PP...

    What I've used with great satisfaction for the last 20 years is a product called LPS 3, which is a long-term metal storage protectant. It's available in aerosol and by the jug, smells like cherry pop, goes on like thirty-weight and dries to a...
