    I'm not a COW fan and would rather use a buffer in some of those applications. remember that a filler just fills an air hole and a buffer is a compressable inert material. they both have their place. a Dacron type filler works better in the sharp...

    I'm sticking to naked lead for the majority of my shooting. the Powder coat has it's place and can be quite helpful in some situations. the oven is still useful for heat treating boolits either way. I like having options to problems when they...

    umm. for a wad cutter you taper crimp.... kind of. it's mostly ironing the sides of the case flat. neck tension is more than enough for 3 grs of powder to ignite properly.

    you got a little stringing with the 44. a primer change could bring that into a little round hole. for P-dogs I really like the speer 125gr 'TNT' it has to be their most accurate bullet except maybe their 100gr BT controlled expansion for the 25...

    plain base is plenty good. the lower velocity and longer length might not be compatible. especially if you get a 44 mag rifle with the twist rate for a 44-40.

    I had 2 sets of dies and over 600 pieces of brass, for many years, before ever finding a 41 to play with. What in the heck took me so long? There are now several, and their my favorites. Less punishment for equal performance. What's not to love?

    I keep the barn swallows from building in my shop and porches with a stuffed raccoon toy. Just hang it where they want to build. After a few passes they move on to "safer" places.

    I don't, I shoot the .44 as is. the .357 as is and any caliber as is. The .44 mag is not a .44 special. The .475 is not a .480 either. You buy a big magnum and want a .38. Just why did you buy a big gun? Every post is for lighter loads with guns you...
