    I got a 550B in the 90's when I started shooting SASS. I loaded for 6 people 17-45 shooting 2 SASS matches and practice. Once I had it set it worked like a Swiss watch. Didn't need auto advance. Now have the 550B, 2 SDB's, and a single stage...

    I have a Browning that someone in the past took the barrel off and put a .38-55 barrel Full Octagon 30". It out shoots my sharps .45-70 under 500 yards. It is very heavy to carry in the woods. I can see where the short barrel would be nice if...

    John Boy I don't know how good the liner is and if it is attached good enough to shoot. I have 5 lever guns in .25-20 which is the reason he went that way. Any way I go I have to have a smith do it as I don't have any machines though I have a...
