    I have seen two of them. Except for particles of dried blood and tissue, they could have been shot into New Yorkers. *** I own two copies of Don Kettlecamp's privately published book, Hunting Southern Africa with Muzzle Loading Rifles. The book,...

    You have identified one of several problems with my queried test. Rather than circle the money drain with no prospect of reliably obtaining an answer, I shall revert to my penetration test. At least I have an analogy from a known test result....

    Moderator: If you believe this query should be place in different sub-forum, please move it to where it belongs. *** I choose to afford to try this two different occasions only. I have been trying to identify how effective will be three loads, two...

    My Custom Rossi 92 lever action sporting rifle is back in my possession. And, yes, it is in "needs a whole bunch of work" condition. My heart is no longer invested in my perfectly conceived rifle. Now, I'll settle for getting it in decent working...

    Bingo! We have a winner! While this is not the specific information I read, this is the "Buck Rodgers Personal Model" device that stuck in memory. Reading material obout it again, I'm still impressed with what might have been - an army of one...

    The device, as I remember its description, is the individual infantryman's weapon. It was not any "additional" device or specialty extra. The reason it remains in memory is that it was to be the general issue, as the M16 was general issue, while the...

    Aren't some of the black finishes on currently manufactured handguns nitride? You correctly observe that I am confused on this basic facet of my query. I may not know correct identification of a process useful for my needs.

    I think I remember reading about a small arms ammunition being developed that incorporated some sort of artificial intelligence proximity fuse (at $20.00 per shot) that would explode or penetrate at what it had been aimed or loosed. Among its...

    Regarding DuraCoat, I queried them about three weeks ago. In their reply, I was informed that each surface is built-up 1.5 mils (I had no idea what a "mil" was. The guys here responded by defining it as .001 inch). That translates to .003 inch per...

    In my "stuff" bin I have three rifle actions, all of which need work and then refinishing. These are: Lee-Enfield No. 4 Mk. 1*; M1898 Krag; and non-case hardened Winchester 1886. None has any value as collectible. I want to eventually metamorphose...

    My title pretty much let's you know what I seek - that is, between 17 and 30 .323-inch round balls. While I prefer pure lead, any lead:tin round ball alloy is okay. I am in Missoula County, Montana.

    Model 97 kind've gives it away that the cartridge is heavily loaded 45 Colt rather than 454 Casull. I realize that load flexibility with H110 is small. Since Redding's bullet is not among those listed by Hodgdon's I was soliciting information...

    For use in large frame Ruger Blackhawks and Freedom Arms Model 97s, what is the lightest load of H110 that is safe when handloading Redding #454 (300-grain SWCGC) cast with WW + 2 air dropped/cooled? So long as bullets use the crimp groove,...

    Moderator: If you think this kind've windy post should be a thread OP in LEVERGUNS subforum, please make it so. I've had the thing for more than a day. The conversion of lever and bottom tang to half-pistol grip is not a good job, contrary to...

    The judgment I have reached is that I am not temperamentally suited to switch from LCR to any pocketable semiautomatic pistol. I am convinced that second strike is nowhere as useful as a second trigger action on a double action revolver. Since I am...

    This afternoon I retrieved a package containing a rifle, unused parts, duplicate parts, and a refund-in-full. So far as I am concerned, my Mail Fraud complaint has been satisfied. Having examined the work done on the rifle, I understand why he...

    I know that western saddles for horses are different (have different trees??) from such saddles intended for mules. I know that custom-built saddles can be extremely expensive. To simplify the thread, let's limit to western saddles for horses. How...

    Bigslug: As someone who has only double action revolvers as EDC, what might be a learned memory for you would be nothing of the sort for me. I'll believe we'll have to agree to disagree.

    Ruger's LCR 357 Magnum weighs about 17.5 ounces unloaded and about 22 ounces loaded with five FBI 38 Special 158-grain LSWC-HP cartridges. Among semiautomatic pistols that have been in production long enough to demonstrate they are pretty much...
