    Jedman replied to a thread Slingshots? in AirGuns
    I too am a former sling shootist. Still own a couple that need new bands, can't get rid of stuff like that. One shot that stays sharp in my memory is knocking a pidgeon out of the air with a marble and leading it just like wing shooting and...

    For what I can find online you can make your 8 X 58 R brass from 8 X 56 R brass and will not need to turn the rim to fit, the brass will probably be about 2 mm short but that's better than using 45-70. Grafs has the 8 X 56 R PPU brass on sale now...

    Jedman replied to a thread 35 rem in Factory Rifles
    There is a local LGS near me that has a older model 760 in 35 Rem. On the rack for $ 299.00. It is well used and has been D&T for a side mounted scope mount and has a Bushnell scope on it. I see them in 35 Rem. quite often and the usually range...

    Seems to me that using 360 DW is a waste of expensive brass. I just formed a bunch of 256 WM brass from 357 mag brass and all of it needed trimming to get to 1.280" so you must be trimming Something like a 1/8" of the neck ? I also formed some...

    Another easy test for headspace is just fire a normally sized case with just a primer in the gun. If you have excess headspace the ejected case will have the primer proud from the case bottom. Jedman

    I just sold 2 rifles and a shotgun and guess some of the money had to go back in to my guns. I bought 2 Star BM pistols from J&G just to keep when the surplus dries up. Funny in over 50 years of buying, selling and trading several hundred guns...

    I see no problem with a screw stud for the rear of the stock if installed right it wount pull out. For the front they make barrel band style metal swivels that clamp on and work well. Another idea looking at the pic of your stock it looks like it...

    Hi Andy, For what these cost I would say you have a couple of options, CVA makes several models of single shots in 35 Rem. If you don't mind the plastic stocks. For similar money you should be able to find a NIB or used H&R handi rifle in 35 Rem....

    I use I 4227 in my 45 Colt rifles and believe it's one of the best powders as you don't need to load it to maximum pressures to get it to burn well or give good accuracy. In the 1873 I would stay near the 14 K loads give or take a grain or two...

    I once had a wildcat that was formed on 30-30 brass and the neck would need about a 1/2" trimmed off. I took a block of hardwood and drilled a row of holes about the size of the necks then opened up the backside to where the large part of the case...

    I have one in a M 57 M which is the 22 magnum. I also have wanted a M 62 if I ever found one priced good. There is a gun store near me now that has a M 57 in 22 LR at a good price and I am trying my best not to go get it. Jedman

    Jedman replied to a thread Martini in 357MAX in Single Shot Guns
    I also had a small framed Greener takedown martini in 32-20/ 310 but I made a D bit reamer so it has no shoulder and is a true strait wall. In a weak moment I let someone buy it from me and now miss it. :cry: Jedman

    Jedman replied to a thread Martini in 357MAX in Single Shot Guns
    I have a rebarreled BSA Cadet in 357 MAX it shoots great but the extraction of the 1.6" long strait walled case is not great. It extracts the fired case about a 1/2" and you need to pull it out the rest of the way with your fingers. Jedman

    I recently rechambered a Marlin 1892 to 32 S&W long from 32 Colt long. I bought some 100 gr. Cast RN bollits with 2 lube grooves to use in place of the heeled bollit . I found to get them to feed I needed to trim the brass to .885 OAL and loaded up...

    Probably the reason they were not made long as they were more than twice the price of a H&R Huntsman and offered nothing more. Jedman
