    I have about a half dozen or a few more. I also have some folding Opinels. Both makes are reasonably priced & do the jobs I ask them to do. All of mine are carbon steel, but some folks like stainless steel for salt water & high humidity areas. I...

    JBinMN replied to a thread Turrets in Reloading Equipment
    I have a Lyman Spar-T, a Lyman Truline Jr. & a Lee Classic Cast turret. I prefer the Lee because of the ease of changing turrets to change over from one caliber to the other by having extra turrets. Even if I had extra turrets for the other two,...

    OS OK replied to a thread Turrets in Reloading Equipment
    I would have to say the Lyman T Mag II... It's small and it's rugged, no flex in the turret top and it's the workhorse in my shop for working up loads. Turret changes are very quick, just the one center bolt locks the turret on and there's...

    A favorite of ours, Biscuits & Sausage Gravy or S.O.S. gravy, once a week for many years. Mostly by scratch, but on occasion 12- 16 biscuits from a couple of cans works, if in a hurry. ;) Mouth is watering as I type. ;)

    Good to read about folks who still do the "traditional" " old school" ways. ;) Thanks for sharing that ya'll still do it! It is really becoming rare. Just like canning up meats, fish & vegetables, or even now, raising a home garden to feed the...

    I wish that I could tell you exactly what caused the welding but have no idea other than something in the pores of the metal that didn't come out when you cleaned it. I think as our moulds get used over and over again, they form a microscopic carbon...

    To simplify; If the same bullet is used at identical MV and the rifles are all zeroed at the same range the ballistics (i.e. trajectory) will be identical. Caveat; the only thing to upset the apple cart is if there is any difference in sight...

    The caveat is that the bullet profile must permit seating bullets to 0.94" minimum overall cartridge length and also have them still chamber in the pistol. At shorter OAL the shank of the bullet intrudes too deeply into the powder space and will...

    You might try the Accurate 43-206H. When ordering you have specify the desired diameter and alloy you want to use. I use this semi-wadcutter with 6 grains of Bullseye in the .44-40. I am confident that it would also be a winner in the .44 Special. ...

    "The SAAMI specs for 44 Special loadings are held pathetically low." That is certainly true. My experience with Skeeter's load (I have shot it a lot for many years but in handguns with adjustable sights) is that it hits considerably lower than...

    OP says; "I'm hesitant to modify the sights to get in "on-target" While Skeeter's load is an excellent one many times it does not hit to aim with fixed sighted revolvers. The sights of fixed sighted revolvers are usually regulated to the most...
