    I have two original model LCPs. I am an old wheelgun guy and find the DA trigger pull feels like one of my older Colts with slight stacking. Some reviewers did not care for the sights, but I also feel them adequate like a Colt snubby .38 Special. ...

    That's the unfortunate (or fortunate depending on how one looks at it) part with the new barrels. They are chambered to SAAMI specs. Thus with the 30-30 there is no free bore or throat as that is correct according to SAAMI.

    Lyman works great for me. Just keep lead of the face of it. Like away from the lead. Stretch out that curly cable to the probe when you are checking temps. I know from experience. Went to dip out some dross & caught the spoon I use on the mechanism...

    IF you want a round which you can buy factory ammo for, the .44-40 has advantages. My experience with the .38-40 in vintage revolvers was that chamber dimensions varied widely and caused problems. I had John Taylor do two .44-40 Ruger revolver...

    At over a half ton of mixed alloys & pure, along with using about 5-6 traps to catch what goes down range, I think I am about done with accumulating. Funny I say that though, I just bought 23 more pounds of Xray room strippings about 4 hours ago,...

    If you are just using the rifle for range shooting, consider the 10x25mm. John Taylor has the chambering and die reamers and can do your rifle and a matching revolver in the same caliber. Cases are necked down .44 Russian. The .44 Russian...

    My 21" Contender carbine 30-30 barrel (TC factory) with 10" twist and multi groove rifling is about 25 yrs old. The OAL from breach face to the leade is 2.190". That leaves sufficient throat to seat a 311041 or 311291 to and crimp at the crimp...

    The old "standard" load for the 45 Colt is 8.5 gr Unique under the 454190 cast bullet. Seated to an OAL of 1.6 the pressure runs 18 - 18,500 psi. That's using Starline cases and Fed 150 primers. Using the same bullet, cases, primer, and OAL but...
