    I have 32acp dies & several 32 molds, but I can say I have never reloaded a 32acp in my life. Now 32 revolver, short & long I have loaded hundreds. My BIL had a 25 that he was plinking with all the time. It's only gun he owned. My sister was at...

    I would reline to short and shoot it. I have bought project guns and they all seemed to be pumps. Wins, Rems and Marlins. People try to convert 22wrf to LR and short to LR, and seem to never get the job done. It turns out to be more technical than...

    Drm50 replied to a thread Savage 99 30-30 in Leverguns
    I have never got a nice 99 in 30/30. They are always thrashed. I've had quite a few, most are 300sav & 303sav. I just sold a nice 303 after dragging it around for a year. The 30/30 have always been desirable even when most of the other 99s weren't...

    I have owned a sack of good 32acp pistols. I never did much shooting with them other than fool around plinking. My only gut buster type gun that I keep is a Walther PP 32. For what it is it is accurate enough to be practical. I always wondered why...

    Very nice work a design. Me and Bro have welded up similar but never bother any finish work. In the winter I shoot a lot of 22 pistol in basement into garage. I built simple box out of 3/16" sheet, with a angle plate of 1/8" at back - sand in...

    Back in 60s when deer hunting took off big time in Ohio most guys just used their everyday shot gun to hunt with. A guy using a 12g Win LA blew up the gun with a rifled slug. Luckily he wasn't hurt seriously. He claimed it had been shot for years...

    I have had a lot of Rem 11s and have worked on a lot of them. I have canbalbilized many of them to make shootable guns and I have no idea what you are talking about. Are you sure you are not confused and are talking about a 1911 Win? That's the...

    I buy no guns that sound like they should come with breadsticks. Too many glitches over the years and major pain when you are the dealer that sold it. I got to point that I would only order such guns for a customer, with disclaimer on...

    I have no experience with Rossi guns but have Lyman tangs on 3 rifles. 53Win, 94 Win and a 100 yr old Marlin 1894 32/20. Perfect fits. I would tend to think it Rossi problem. Have a lot of Lyman sights of both newer and old production. I like the...

    Confirms my own loading experiences. Have separated and loaded 38WC brass since a kid. I have never owned 44sp or 45 Colt factory WCs. In fact I only loaded 32 & 38 WCs until recently. I have loaded thousands of 41-44-45s, but not WCs. Not...

    I've been loading 38 WCs since I was a kid. I always kept the 38WC brass separate from standard 38 brass. It was always drilled into me they were different. Just in last couple years I have become interested in 44sp & 45Colt in WC loadings. I...

    I could kick myself in the butt over those manuals. I went to USSADs for small arms training in 70 and they gave us TMs and FMs for all US small arms both issue and special issue. I have some left but sold most of them. The 22 pistol manual was...

    There is also 3b. If these bullets are loaded as cast, could your Beagling job resulted in out of round bullet? Would be similar to bullet being seated slightly crooked. I have seen same trouble with 38/55 in a original 94.

    I've got a Oct barrel 1894 Marlin from early 1900s and a Win 53 from 30s? The Marlin is capable of Sqirrels head at 40yds, with tang sight. The Win prefers the 115 gr boolits to do that well.
