    Just read a real interesting article in the newest "guns of the old west" magazine. The author put a Henry golden boy 22 through a torture test to see how it would hold up. He fired a total of 28,000 rounds as fast as he could (not all in one...

    Everytime I watch Passion of the Christ, tears well up, and I get a lump in my throat the size of a grapefruit, just seeing the horror He endured for us!

    Ok, just went down and looked one side of the web has lyman, the other 450. The lube goes above and below the bullet, as well as the lube grooves. The bullet is pushed back up from the reservoir by a rod.

    My apologies to the OP. Double checked the cyl. throats on the 45. They are all around .454. I guess I didn't have the caliper zeroed good the first time. Sorry(open mouth insert foot).

    Has anyone ever "rebuilt" a lubrisizer? I picked up a pretty old Lyman at a lgs years ago. I think it's a 450. It's green and looks a lot like a 4500. Think I paid like $10 for the sizer with a handful of dies and top punches. I rarely use the...

    I've had two Great Western IIs. Won't buy another. Both have had terrible accuracy right out of the box. Did some checking, and the cylinder mouths are HUGE! For instance, the .45 colt has a .452 bore, and .460+ cylinder mouths. The 44-40 is just as...

    Back in the early 80s, traded some gun slings for a zouave rifle. It came with a round ball and a minie ball mold (lyman I believe). Not knowing a thing about casting, I busted up some old batteries I had, melted the plates down on the kitchen stove...

    Thinking about trying a Lee 401-175tc for a 38-40 single action. Anybody out there use these? If so, what were the results. Thinking about maybe a 20-1 alloy.

    Used to pick up Shooting Times just to read Skeeters articles. Good stuff! Also, one I used to get all the time was Guns Of The Old West.
