    I've had My 1895CB for 20+yrs and My 1895S Pre-Safety for about 40yrs. I bought the Lyman #457193 just for The 1895S. It shoots just as well in the 1895CB. And it Feeds without any problems AT all in either Rifle. Never had a problem with...

    I'm lucky enough to have collected the factory type ingot molds over the last 45yrs. So I separate alloys by Ingot imprint. I think I've got 20 or so. Lyman ingots are #2 Alloy, Ohaus is Linotype and so on. My last ingot mold is a Lodge Scone...

    The first Lever Gun I ever shot was My Dad's old 1894 in .25-35. Pretty darn hard for a 7yr old I had my own 1894 in .30WCF by the time I was 14yrs old. Of course being a Kid I just HAD to take it apart. Learned a lot about them. The old...

    The Author of this thread stated he was a Cowboy Action Shooter. He knows how to work a Lever Gun properly. And like the Author, I've worked on a number of Lever Guns. Marlin 1892, 1894, 1985 & 36/336 Win/Uberti 1860,1866 & 1873 Win 94/1894...

    IMR4831 is way to slow burning. The case capacity is too small to gain any advantage.

    You got a good point. I had a mess of mixed brass I was de-capping/sizing and some you could feel resistance, some sized with no resistance! Same goes for priming, seating, crimping.

    Yea I'm gonna do that. Wife says I accumulate too much "stuff". I have "half" the stuff I had with the first 2 wives! A man needs tools, guns, gun accessories, ammo, camo and other hobby related things.

    I know what you all are saying as far as performance is concerned... I'm a little nostalgic when it comes to head stamps I guess. For the purposes of shooting, I don't even trim revolver brass most times.

    I recently acquired some 38 special brass and as usual I sort all the head stamps, most of which are Winchester, Federal and Remington Peters. As the night went on, I discovered a number of other brands listed below. Aside from all the "proprietary"...

    I use Dawn dish soap as a sizing lube in my Lee sizing die. After PC, I put 100 or so bullets in a small Tupperware bowl, a dime size squirt of Dawn and snap on the lid. Shake like LLA and size IMMEDIATELY. Rinse well in hot water, pour out on...

    I seem to remember an article by John Barsness from Handloader Magazine. It was a few years back and the only details I remember was a Ruger Bisley 7 1/2" and it was Southeast Montana. I think he took a big Muley Buck.
