    Hand bang Em and save the money. If it's just a shed you can nail it off by hand faster than jacking around setting up and dragging the gun around.

    NOPE! But, through the years of reloading, and reading " the experts": Marshall & Sanow, Ayoob, Harris, Skelton and others, several things have stuck in my mind. 1. You shoot best what kicks and deafens you least. Few people can handle well the...

    Great-looking rifle! Jealousy is such a negative emotion! :wink: Since the late Stone Age, 10 gr. of Unique has been known a the UMAGGB (Universal, Make Any Gun Go Bang) load. The same can be said of 5 gr Unique for .38-357 revolvers. :wink:

    As PC Bullets are a fairly recent movement in the cast community and that these designs were arrived at for subsonic work primarily in the 300 BLK, I seriously doubt you're going to come up with much, if any, published load data. A caseful of the...

    Trailboss is the only suitable powder that you list. Overall length is CRITICAL. 1.600 MAX LYMAN#454424 will hang up on the front band going into the chamber. You would have to crimp over the front driving band to get a short enough overall...

    Just an FYI to go along with the ingredients, ATF & Kerosene mixed has been found to out perform most penetrating lubricants. I use Ed's routinely for that purpose.
