    Got a Colt NS that I use 45AR cases with rims thinned. Gun is excellent and didn’t want to CS cylinder. My bullet is from modified Lyman Ideal, 322gr Gould Express HP. Boolit is 272gr hp. I settled on 4.5grs of Unique. I still have original notes, I...

    I had 77v in 220 Swift. I shoot 55gr in all my CF 22s except Hornet. Ruger would shoot 1” at 100yds. I had a Redfield 16x. 220 was my favorite only one I have left is a custom 98 varmit.

    I did a scope once, didn’t work out well. In Jack O’Connor’s book the chapter on scopes has in 1st paragraph, Two kids of people take scopes apart, experts and fools. I was not in expert category. Getting the older scopes serviced is pricey.

    I had a highly sporterized carbine a few years back. Fancy stock, Blue and scope. Unfortunately as neat looking as it was, it didn’t shoot that well. I tried several bullets and the Sierra 110 was feed problem. The Speer 110 HP was not , nor the RN...

    I have a big old South Bend, belt drive but I was interested in one of those small $500-700 jobs. Buddy of mine bought one and it’s a joke for anything serious. Might be ok for crafts if you are turning soft materials. In my neck of the woods it’s...

    I have several Arrow T-50s and a Craftsman that works backwards. It can also drive small brads. I have a couple smaller Arrows that will work fine for just target to backing. I only want to carry one so a T50 is in target box.

    I’ve found S&Ws to be extremely accurate with cast boolits sized for the particular gun. I have and have had many, many S&Ws. I had no interest in service revolvers of Colt or S&W. I had several Pythons in 60 & 70s. Very fine shooting and I never...

    I got my Ruger SBH when I was a kid because it beat owners knuckles. A guy my Dad worked with won SBH and only fired it a few times. My dad was always fascinated with SBH but had no use for a 44mg. Dad bought it for $50, a tidy sum in 1962. It bit...

    I always liked the S&Ws over Colts in DAs. In the service revolvers S&W seemed to have best triggers out of the box. Colts are prone to have more problems. S&W made there rep with DAs, Colt with SAs. Today the earlier model guns of both are...

    I had a 14” 30/30 TC and shot Speer 110gr Varmiter bullet. I also have several 30/30 rifles and have killed a lot of deer with them. It’s hard for me to believe a 30/30AI is so much better than a 30/30 that makes it a 400yd deer gun in a 14”...

    550 was a highly dependable rifle. I suppose if abused it would give problems. They will shoot S-L-Lr mixed. If gun is nice shape on outside I would take the chance same on inside. You can what if stuff to death. I’ve had a dozen 550 in various...

    I did a stupid trick back in 70s. I got all the ammo out of a HWD that had doors since middle 50s over heirs & probate. There was a good bit of rimfire. Shot up a lot of the 22wrf and 22auto in 22mags for plinking ammo. In 22mg the 22wrf was like a...

    Best thing might be for friend to give up hunting. I know it’s hard, I’m 70 and Doc told me I would never play the fiddle again. I’m not going to hunt out of stand or fish off a dock. I can still target shoot within reason. I’m selling all my guns,...

    This is not smart or reasonable. A m10 is a fixed sight service revolver. It is a K frame but m19s that are K 357s are built heavier.

    When deer hunting I don’t use aperture, just shoot through frame and have Marble Patridge fronts with inlaid gold flat. I carry a Williams Twi-Lite aperture in my watch pocket in case I would get a long stationary shot.
