    Maxim made his fortune on industrial silencers for the early air tools. The silencers for firearms didn't come close to industrial market. I'm sure there are many more silencers on firearms now than have ever existed. Technically suppressors, I...

    You are right about the hardness of Speer 235g bullets. One of my favorite rifles was a old Sako 375 H&H I bought new in 60s. I started using the 235 for deer, even shot some Ground hog with them. I sold the 375 H&H couple years ago, to old to go...

    The 308 case cut to length and necked with 41 mag die should work. In past when Ohio was Slug only we were trying to come up with Super Slug guns that could pass as 410s. We experimented with Brit 303, 30/06, & 444 necked to 41. All fired through...

    I have loaded 375Win on and off since it came out, for Lever Actions. That's my experience, jacketed bullets - crimped. I have never crimped anything that didn't need it. Now for past couple years have a couple of #3 Rugers and have been trying to...

    When I was a kid someone gave me some old 12g loading tools. They were the old cast iron with table top clamps on each tool. I think they were ideal but not sure. There was a slug mold and a die with a crank handle that pushed it through by screw...

    I use 2400 for jacketed bullets, the heaviest bullet I've ever loaded was 300g Sierra. Didn't like it and went back to 240jhp. I use Unique for all my cast loads in 44 & 45. I'm loading 8.5g of unique in 45Colt with 250gr RNFP cast. I had a 270gr...

    I read somewhere that 87 is wire twist 12 or 10g. The 1901 was avaible with choice of barrel steel and 10g only. I have several Levers and Single Shots from BP days. I load all them with light loads of smokeless and cast bullets. A steel barrel is...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...
