    Yes it was. My surplus 4895, WC846 and 700x ( I go through at least 8 lbs. of 700x a year now as I got hooked on it) is long gone. It’s just the WC820 I have left and since my 30 carbine doesn’t have a selector switch, it will be around after I am...

    Lar45, thanks. I am using 10 grains unique in my 30-30 behind 311291. I could up the wc820 in 30-30. The hazmat and shipping is too much to ship one jug. Thanks for posting

    Yea, that’s what I thought. Ok, about to load up 7-800 357 with Lee’s 158 SWC TL water hardened. I was using unique to get about 11-1200 FPS depending on barrel length and I like that slightly reduced load. Anyone have a suggested load that is...

    I have way more wc820 (16lbs) than what I shoot in 30 carbine and 410. Anyone loading a 38 plus P load with a 158 lead bullet load? I will load a 357 lead bullet load but I shoot 10 times as many 38 plus P than .357. I shoot 44 magnum very rarely...

    When shooting my colt 1903 in 32 acp, I separate U.S. manufactured brass cartridges from European made cases. The gun feeds both but not if I mix them in the magazine. It appears the semi rimmed cases are cut different and that is where the hang...

    I loaded smokeless loads for a friend that had a German drilling in that caliber. Somewhere I read to use 38-55 data of which I did using a Lyman cast bullet made for 9.3 calibers. It was an accurate load but for some reason shot high. I believe...

    Unique works wonders in 45-70 if the velocity will work for you. I had lousy performance with 4198 and dryer lint in 577 Snyder. Switched back to pyrodex in the snider and all is well.

    Both my colt 1908 vest pocket and my Astra made colt junior 25 auto feed perfectly with any make or vintage 50 fmj. After I ran out of my first box of Rem. factory, I bought dies and hornandy 50 Fmj bullets. Then I immediately lucked out and found...

    I have both a colt 12” 45 blued/cc and a nickel new frontier 45 Ned buntline 45 12”. They are fun to shoot but do benefit with a rest for extended range sessions. The 16” or 18” versions benefit by being able to used a detachable should stock...

    Too late to the fight here but I was going to suggest to sell the Winchester and find a waffle top 336 in 35 Rem. The extra cash can buy brass, dies, rear sight and mold. Love my SC. Smooooooooth action, shoot all kinds of pistol bullets down to...
