    Aluminum loses its "solidus" and becomes increasingly weak at about lead melting temperatures. Makes me shudder, to think of the amount of casting I did with an aluminum pot before I found that out! I quit immediately! I wonder how many new...

    I meet Venterino twice. The 1st time was back in 1989 or 1990 at End of Trail. It was the last EOT at COTO DE CAZA, where it all started. He was on his way to shoot a stage, what caught my eye was the 1873 Military Musket he was carrying. He...

    I had one 20yrs ago. I liked it well enough. But in Cowboy Shooting, ya need a matched pair. And I preferred the COLT Navy. So I sold it and bought another COLT Navy.

    BR, An SR500 was not my first, but it was my first nice bike. I had more fun turning it into a cafe racer. Bored and stroked that thing sounded like a tractor and would eat most 750's up. I think it ended up about 625cc's. What a great bike.

    There is huge amount of load info in Castpics. WC860-870 works well in a LOT of situations, especially with cast, in most any medium to large volume cartridge, usually of .30 caliber or larger.

    How old was the primer ? What brand ? Was it a Winchester from the early 2000's when WIN switched to brass plated cups from nickel plated cups ? Many of my friends and fellow Cowboy Shooter's had many duds from that first "changeover" lot.

    EDG, My Apologies, Sir. It was intended as a reply to Castaway's statement about 2" groups at 25yds. It's hard for some people to believe that a handgun can be capable of sub 2 inch groups at 25yds. I grew up with a Father & Brothers...
