    My choice would be the 32-20. Something fun, can take small critters and cheap to shoot. If I want to get pounded, I've got 92s in 357 and 45 Colt with pistols to match but when I have the time to plink, the 32 gets the nod. I've got a Winokou...

    To help you out, pay attention to the requirement to heat cycle that mold 3-4 times after cleaning before putting the ladle to it. Once it develops a patina, it'll release boolits alot easier. Also, coat the slide pins and HP pins with pencil lead...

    Greg S replied to a thread 9mm/38spl in Cast Boolits
    You might want to go abit bigger. Mihec made a dual purpose 359 or 360 135 HP that I picked up for 38 plinkers and 9mm. Some folks are using big 9mm boolits to get them to shoot.

    Any chance there was a ball stuck in the breech at one time and some tried to fish it out and the cork screw came off the rod. They took it to a smith who adapted a zirc fitting and pumped the ball out with grease.

    I have a 550 I picked up in 86. It has the original measure and occassionally the bar will stick which can be costly for a squib in a 1911. The newer designed measure looks promising especially with ball powders that tend to jam it up which I run...

    It's in the same class, (opioid) so it will help with withdrawl but it is just an opioid replacement. If the opioid dependance is established will remain. There is no free lunch. Tramadil was designed for back pain.

    See the lever coming out from the bottom tang. That is the trigger lock safety to insure the lever/bolt is fully closed. If no fully closed, it pevents dischaging the firearm.
