    Obviously the warranty department is just full of parts changers not gunsmiths. Make the bushing on a lathe and install it with the proper tool and you would have been a happy guy.

    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! ...

    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...
