    I've been shooting for a lot of years and a lot of calibers. First let me say the U.S. major brands aren't the same brass cases they were way back. For that matter some of them don't even make their own brass. Okay I've never liked Remington...

    As I stated about more and more newer 38 Super cases are rimless like the 9mm's.

    Back in the early days when Tasco's were made in Japan, for the money, they were tough to beat!!! The new ones are kind of junky. Also in the early days Tasco has a scope mount with rings called the World Class scope mount and it's second to...

    I don't have any 9x23 cases, but I'm sure you know that both the 9mm Luger and 9x23 have a fatter web area then a Super. the Super actually IS a straight case. When I made the 9x23 barrel for my Tokarev I used the 9x23 reamer and shoot only 38...

    Most the 38 Super brass you buy today is the rimless stuff. Starline calls it Comp. I've also bought a lot of once fired 38 Super cases and the mixed brands are Aguila, AA, Sig, Jag, Federal, S&B, and another one that has some A's in the stamp. None...

    I'm sure you know you should use a 9mm/38super slide for them right? I've done all these years ago. Also you will have to change your 45acp ejector and the 9mm/38super also have a differenc slide stop. I've also done a 9x23 on Tokarev.

    Uberti has said this: "Our '76 is good with any powder/bullet combo that the pressure does not exceed 28,000 CUP." From my research the thing that made Winhester's "toggle link" action weak wasn't the type of systme, but rather the metal back...

    I'd like to know who you bought the barrel from and I would have to agree with swheeler.

    Look at that new 50 caliber muzzler loader that has been out for a short while now and it has a permanent suppressor and it's not a NFA firearm. The ATF could care less about that muzzler loader.

    For sure you don't need 7.0 for pop cans. My load for that would be 3.4 to 4.0 of Bullseye.

    Old Speer #9 manual says 7.3 grs for a 200 grain jacked hollow point. I've shot quite a few 7.0 grains with the Lyman 225 grain round nose and it wasn't all that hot. Even shot it over the years that Alliant changed the powder some and it's still...

    Lap that section through the frame out Newton. You take an old bore brush and push it in the muzzle end of the barrel so it's just barely below the muzzle end after you had put a plug in first say make from tin foil or something that won't let the...

    Yes it doesn't matter what the bullet is made of if it's balanced with no defects internal or external, enters the bore straight, doesn't receive any form of damage from the rifling, is the right alloy for the pressure range, and exits the muzzle...

    Another thing your muzzle end of the barrel may have a larger bore/groove then rear end of it. Also too many guns constrict the barrel where they screw into the frame. The earlier S&W's were bad for this.

    That's easy to explain about the Wolf 223 ammo Tomme. ES and SD only have to do the velocity of that bullet at the muzzle. The problem there is that wolf ammo doesn't have match grade bullets, but the load gave very consistent velocity.

    I believe you when you say it melts. The NRA said it melts and they found little round ball/balls of it in the bore. Myself I have never found that. I think because I'm not one to shoot the very small charges of fast powders like Bullseye and...
