    I feel the pain of indecision. I am going out on Sunday for a cow elk/deer hunt. I thought I had it down to my Contender handgun in 45-70 and two rifles as back up since we are going to be so far out. Now I’m thinking I should take my wildcat...

    I agree with you Wayne. Normally I shoot 5 shot groups to really see what my firearm is doing with a certain load. I only had 6 loaded up because I had to cast more. For whatever reason I figured I would shoot 3, 2 shot groups instead of a 6...

    So, the only change I made was depriming the cases without sizing, just opening the mouth and seating and crimping the boolit in. I shot just a few 2 shot groups to see if it changed poi. It didn’t. But, the groups tightened up significantly! ...

    modified5 replied to a thread Big Bore Regret..? in Leverguns
    I have a Marlin 1895 guide gun in .450 Marlin that was made the first year they came out and a TC contender handgun in 45-70 with a 15 inch Virgin Valley barrel on it. I donít regret either one. I love the big bores and am looking at getting more....

    I have the Lee 457-405 rnfp mold and with 50/50 soww/coww it casts about 420 grains. I weighed them just to see how consistent the mold was. If I can get them to shoot, I don’t care about the weight.

    It is a handgun. I was shooting it off of sandbags. My best group with another barrel on this frame is 3/8 inch at 100. 3 shots. I know I’m capable, and I’m sure the barrel is capable. Just need to find the best boolit combination. I did...

    I’m thinking the same thing. My barrel is a Virgin Valley barrel that slugs out right at .458 with no loose or tight spots. The boolits came out right at .4585 with this alloy. I have no leading at all. For my next outing the brass will be...

    Getting ready for a cow elk/deer hunt next month and I really want to take my contender with my 45-70 barrel. I shot this group at 100 yards with a Lee 457-405 RF. It is 4 inches at its widest point. They drop out at 420 gr with 50-50 coww and...

    I am particular when it comes to firearm safety and reloading safety. As far as round count, how many times a case has been reloaded, nope. I used to go shoot ground squirrels every weekend and burn at least 1100 rounds every time between...
