    oldhenry: It doesn't seem that it's just S&W. Most of the "new" handguns are just CNC formed parts thrown to gather by a semi-skilled work force and shipped out without so much as a function test. Gp

    gpidaho replied to a thread .357 rabbit load in Leverguns
    BJJ: I would think that the power level would be a more important factor than the difference between 95 and 125gr. bullet. I'd just work on which bullet would shoot more accurately with a minimum powder charge. Gp

    Thank you for your reply MT Chambers. I had a look at the rifles you suggested. Very nice rifles indeed, especially the Day State. I'm thinking I best stay with the Diana PCP (it is pretty accurate for the price) I was hoping to find something...

    One in seven is a very fast twist for the 223. It should stabilize the heaviest of 22cal bullets. Gp

    Eastwood semi-gloss clear powder is my go-to powder for shake n bake. Great coverage and I usually add a pinch of my favorite color for a transparent color. An electrostatic gun is the best bet for some powders like the old HF flat black and many...

    The nice thing about loading the new-primed hulls from Cheddite or Fiocchi is that the only tools you need to load them are a scale a wooden dowel and a roll crimping device. Gp

    My 336 30-30 is pre micro-groove but the Lee C309-150-F feeds best. I've found a lot of common 30cal. bullet moulds throw bullets with nose too long to chamber in my rifle. I'm sure there are plenty of bullets that will work but the 150 works best...

    Just wait until hazmat charges are reduced as a special and buy the primers that match your hulls. I have the primer pocket swag tool and it works fine but why add the extra step? Gp
