    Have you assembled any dummys with .358" bullets to see if they would chamber? Many wartime 9mm barrels are oversized. Load the largest bullet diameter which chambers without resistance.

    Thanks for posting the pic! I'm sure Tom will sell a bunch of those molds because many traditional shooters don't like the bevel base. Anxiously waiting for field reports from the Land of Oz.

    What people don't realize if that when you order a Tyler T-grip for an older pre-1940 gun, such as a Colt New Service, these are not made ahead and "stocked," but each one is made to order. In the days of the Internet everyone wants instant...

    Very common in wartime barrels to see nonmetallic inclusions or laminations. These usually occur from elongation of a shrinkage pit in the center of the steel billet when it was poured, because the billet was improperly cropped in the mill, and the...

    For a small case you could either make from .223 brass or just buy Starline, consider the 7.62x25 in a rifle, and then throat it long to permit seating 150-grain rifle bullets out long. John Taylor did one for me using a Remington 722 in .222...

    As FYI, data from firing today. Factory .357 loads fired in 4" S&W Model 28 Highway Patrolman and 1939 Colt New Service 5"in .357 Mag. The .38-44 handloads fired from a 1955 S&W .38-44 Heavy Duty and the 5"Colt New Service .357 Mag. Factory...

    Longitudinal cracks are not unusual for wartime barrels made with slave labor. Rushed production and poor QC. If you REALLY like the gun, John Taylor can make a barrel, and while at it make it long enough to thread for a can. I had him...

    Release clearance determines max. safe bullet diameter. If cartridges chamber without effort the bullet is not too big.

    Load is OK for any "full sized" .32 ACP, would not put lots of it through a Keltec.

    Even with the higher velocity loads intended for the Winchester 1892, pressures do not exceed about 23,000 psi and are well within the design limits of pistol primers, as .44 Magnum loads run up to 35-38,000 psi.

    Outpost75 replied to a thread Colt Lightning 44/40 in Leverguns
    I have found that all .44-40 rifles and revolvers shoot well with a soft 1 to 30 tin-lead alloy 200-208 grain bullet of .430" diameter and 6 grains of Bullseye or TiteGroup, or 6.5 grains of WST, Red Dot or 452AA. Velocity and pressure approximates...

    Large rifle primers in .44-40 brass will "stand proud" because the height of the primer cup is different. Use large PISTOL primers ALWAYS in .44-40! Loading for a .44-40 rifle to levels which are unsuitable for the revolver sort of defeats the...

    I had a BSA Cadet Martini which had been recut with the front of a .32-40 reamer to use .32-20 brass blown out straight. Accuracy was very good with the RCBS 32-120 Cadet heeled bullet cast 1:30 tin-lead with a case full of IMR4198. I've since had...

    Here are some common ratios to blend linotype with pure lead, such as that used for xray shielding: Linotype-plumber's lead blends are ideal for most bullet casting and enable excellent fill-out with good strength and predictable repeatability...

    These look interesting. I guess someone listened to me about making some that use a spanner. My idea was to put two holes through them and use a socket with two pins in it to tighten them. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk
