    I like it. I wish Lee would make a rifle and pistol diecast adjustable charge bar. When I first saw the picture, I thought it might be some type of disconnector or return bar, to replace the chain. Sent from my VS880 using Tapatalk

    Cylinder throats on S&W M1917s and M1950 .45 ACPs are typically .455-.456, Colt M1917 and New Service. 45 likewise, but MkVI Webleys more often .449-.451!!! Webley cylinder throats run tight and benefit from honing by DougGuy to proper size...

    A young man with good eyes, firing handloads can do about as well with a CZ52 or TT33 at 100 yards as an old fuddy duddy can with an M1 carbine and GI ammo, about 6 inches give or take. Even with Combloc surplus ammo the the Пистолет браконьера...

    Before WW1 the folded (balloon) head cases did not have a relief cut ahead of the rim, as modern solid-head .45 Colt cases do, and the rim did not project far enough beyond the circumference of the case head to provide reliable extraction in rifles....

    My best guess is that the bullets are undersized for both guns and that the alloy is too hard. If you cannot gouge the nose of the bullet with your fingernail, it is too hard. If you cannot deform the bullet lube in the grooves with thumb...

    Well said! I could not notice as well that the boolit resembles a Civil War Minie, which would have been adopted about 1855. It looks like they were quickly learning about ballistic co- efficient at that early date. Outpost- Those dimensions...

    Have you cast your chamber and if so, how large is the unrifled portion of the origin of rifling before the lands start? How does this dimension compare with the diameter of the bullets you are shooting? What is the difference in diameters...

    I lucked out that my S&W 544 cylinder has very nearly the same chamber dimensions as my circa 1993 Marlin 1894S .44-40. I had John Taylor rechamber my Ruger Vaquero cylinder and the reamer he used is close enough that once I had the neck honed on...

    In a .410 pattern effectiveness is limited by the small payload, which limits the number of shot in the pattern. I would not use shot larger than 7-1/2 in the 2-1/2" shell or 6's in the 3" shell, with the possible exception of 00 buckshot for large...

    I can validate the above from my own experience. Key is having a smooth barrel and a well-constructed bullet. I had a 7" twist 5.56mm test barrel blank which I rechambered to .22-250 and fitted to a Hart 1A benchrest action for test purposes. ...

    I have cast chambers on both antique and modern .44-40 rifles by Marlin, Winchester, and El Tigre, as well as revolvers by Colt, S&W and Ruger. The rifles ALL had chamber neck diameters of .447-.448" which permit safe release clearance of a...

    Hornady makes a .312" diameter 174-grain SPRN which works well in the .303 British and 7.62x54R.

    With very light cast bullets in the .30 calibers, from 100-130 grains, 4 grains of Bullseye is pretty hard to beat in any case from a .30 M1 carbine to a .30-'06 for a plinker and gallery load. It tolerates the free airspace well, does not require...

    Yep. Thirty years ago, we had a lot fewer reloaders and the manufacturers were competing for market share. Fast forward to the recent political climate of the past eight or more years and the (reloading) market has exploded in growth. Now it's about...
