    I use that bullet and a load of Clays in my Bulldog. It helps in that in recoil no longer feel like a pound of C-4 being detonated in my haND and is reduced to the sensation of a single Black Cat firecracker instead. 35W

    I have lots of Uberti's and have had lots of Colts. Except for my old 1st Generation Colts, I'll take the Uberti all day. I've loaded 44-40 and 45 Colt and the latter seems far less picky about loads. My most recent is a Frisco and it is very...

    A couple of things here- If I'm not mistaken that 24-3 has a 3" barrel. Bullets from the RCBS 44-250 KT, at least those from mine, have less bullet in the case than bullets from a 429421 mould, which lowers pressure and velocity. So, given...

    Thanks lar45 for getting a pic up. Yes, he has Ruger replacement blades as well as 1 piece base sight arrangements for a few different Ruger barrel diameters. I picked up a few of those from him also, for future purchases that I want to put an...

    Hello all, I'd like to tell you about a new front sight I just got from a member here, who goes by 2 dogs on the forum. He just made me a front sight for a BFR revolver in .475 Linebaugh. While the BFR's are fine guns, they have a few short...

    If you can contact Veral as I have in the past, ask his opinion. As Masscaster noted, you basically just need to keep the same nose profile and nose to crimp length as your existing mold, and just add weight below, at this point it will feed and...

    I went though a .410 phase a few years ago and feel like I learned a little that I'll try to contribute. Ammunition- Since a .410 she'll has no cushion for its shot, in order to keep.shot deformation to a minimum, one must choose his loads...

    While the same # appears on the receiver ring and barrel, something seems "off" The font doesn't look like a home gunsmith stamped it, but doesn't look quite factory either. I'm betting it was rebarreled at some point in its life. I will try and...

    I slugged it and did a throat slug too, came out to .2885", so as junkbug mentioned, seems to be a run of the mill loose 7mm. Thanks for the information.

    It is a Gew 98. The bore looks very good, with sharp rifling right to the end. It is a long barreled rifle with the "roller coaster" rear sight. I will do a full slug, but i'm betting I get a similar #, and .292" is a long ways off the .284" of a...

    Hello all, I have an old Mauser that a friend owns, and I am trying to determine what caliber it is. The receiver ring is stamped "Amberg 1918". The serial # is 1327, and the barrel matches the receiver. Now according to all I read online, this...

    Its always worth testing, but I agree with the others you likely won't see much if any difference. I spent a few months dialing in my 6" K-38, and tried H&G, Lyman, Ideal, RCBS, and ended up using a LEE. The LEE made 6 versus 2, and shot every bit...

    Some of the less expensive guns had cylinders that were basically bored straight through, no real "cylinder throat" to speak of, and it sounds like you may have one. With the chamber mouths that big, you may have better luck with a very soft...
