    Walks replied to a poll Old bullet questions in Cast Boolits
    Like others have said, if the lube is smooth, then shoot them. I've seen bullets sold in a wooden box, I have bought some myself from 2 different outfits. But that was almost 30yrs ago, and they were Cowboy Bullets. But they were .44's & .45's....

    Why should you be forced to standard pressure loads in .44SPL ? Use a good SWC or FP over a good charge of 2400 or 4227 in a Modern Made Gun and you have a cartridge/load that will take down most NORTH AMERICAN Game. Why limit yourself if you...

    The M1917 COLTS with the bored-thru cylinder are a fact. My DAD had one, along with a S&W M1917 or 2. We generally shot them with Magna style grips with Pachmayr grip frame adapter's. My DAD made the grips for the Colt. My DAD preferred the .45...

    I load for accuracy too. If the top load gives you the best accuracy, then I'll use it. I use that same load in a NM Blackhawk, have shot one hole groups with that combo. On the other hand I shoot 12.5 grs under the same bullet to get the best...

    When I 1st started Cowboy Shooting, some 30+yrs ago, I switched the grip frames from my Uberti 1860's to My Colt Single Actions. WAS REALLY SURPISED THEY FIT. Didn't care for it. I guess I had grown so used to the regular grip frame on a COLT...

    A huge heavy Full-Stocked Mossberg Bolt Gun that had a 3/4" Scope on it. I was 4yrs yrs old. Guess My Dad got rid of it when I was about 10yrs old. Rested it on an old aluminum chair back. Shot at soda cans, Dad helped hold it up. 5rd clip, hit 2...

    Maybe You could find a old Browning '92. I had one long ago, can't remember if it was drilled & tapped for a receiver sight. henry's have no provision for attaching any type of receiver sight.

    Norske, I disagree completely on the old .357Mag Factory load wearing out N-frame's quickly. My DAD had a Registered Pre-War .357Mag 8 3/4" that he regularly fired a load of the Thompson Gas Check 158gr bullet over a charge of 2400, way to hot...

    You can make "demooner" by finding a piece of metal tubing 6inches long that is barely large enough to fit over a .45ACP round. Then cut off about 2/3 off one end of the tube about 1/8" deep. Then you put it over the cartridge in a moonclip and...

    I use 28.0grs of IMR3031 over the Lyman #375449GC cast of Linotype. Gives me great accuracy out of a Winchester 1981-94-Chief Crazy Horse. Under 2" at 100yrds from the bench. That's 5 shots.

    I like to cast from multiple molds I find that molds of the same Height make casting much easier & smoother I use 3+ molds at a time. Or even 4 if they are all 2cav. I cast from about 725degrees. Even with arthritis I can turn out a good 500...
