    The M1917s are not overly strong, I would treat them gently. I use 6 grains of Unique or 5 grains of Bullseye in mine as max. loads, but most of the time limit charges to 4 grains of Bullseye or 5 grains of Unique with #452423.

    That's better! Farcebook has a post that had been photoshopped, showing the Hornets long enough to extend from one side of the palm to the other. They were laid across the hand as shown in the photo. Those shown are large enough, they don't need...

    I've an old Buck 110 that My Dad gave me in 1971. At least half a dozen other Bucks almost as old. A set of Chicago Cutlery that We got as A Wedding gift. Still going strong too. COLD STEEL, they are the best. They stand behind their quality...

    Buffalo Arms has the military-style full-flap holsters to fit the Colt SAA and the Italian reproductions. Decent workmanship and very affordable.

    For inert filler I buy quilt batting from the craft section at Walmart. A one-inch square of 1/4" thick quilt batting weighs one grain and is about right for most .30 cal. cartridges. Just poke it loosely into the case neck before seating the...

    You might consider getting a .38 cartridge conversion for your Pietta. I have one for my .36 Remington which shoots well with factory .38 Special wadcutters and .38 Long Colt having hollow-based bullets.

    The modern gun blowups I am aware of were mostly metallurgical failures or design defects which could have been avoided had the manufacturer done its due-diligence on inspection, design, testing and failure analysis. S&W Scandium revolver failures...

    When I was in industry an "accelerated endurance test" which the government accepted as a lower cost option than firing 10,000 rounds, was to fire 364 proof loads. I don't know how Picatinny came up with that number, but every day we selected a...

    Once the paper hard copies appear that certainly works for me. In the meantime I figured passing out a few .pdf copies might encourage a few people to use the membership application in the back and join, and several have.

    LOVE IT!! I used a 200 WFN for a few years and it worked very well. Two year ago I switched to a 220 HP. Pushed with a worked up charge of Blue dot to 1200+ fps from a 6" G40 and KKM Barrel. That 220g weighs closer to 230 as I cast it and...

    IIRC you want a 160pc ice cube tray. It works fine to 35 cal. Try Amazon or Ebay. Should be under 10$ for a couple silicone Trays.

    I've used one plenty for sizing/expanding cases. Like the Lyman better. More leverage. And you can bolt it down if you have the space.

    In standard .44 Magnum barrels of 18-3/4" twist in a revolver you will have difficulty stabilizing a bullet heavier than about 300 grains with anything resembling normal accuracy. The much heavier bullets usually require slower burning powders in...

    If you want to buy bullets which are available commercially without casting your own or buying a mold, then get the Hunter's Supply 190-grain FN from Midway in the .358 diameter. The equivalent mold of simiilar design from Accurate is 36-185E or...

    Actually that is all open-source information in the CIP and ANSI standards and the methodology is clearly defined. The military traditionally has used simple, practical methods for assembling proof loads. The .30-'06 proof load was a 220-grain...
