    For 50+ years, I've used one real bees wax toilet ring mixed with 1 pound of Crisco for my BP lube on all of my revolvers. I favor '51 Navies but I do have a Remy "Navy" (Pietta) that is an excellent shooter. I lube the cylinder pin on that with...

    Good luck on your journey with the hot sauce! Don't know whee you are, but if you got big enough to have to buy peppers - check out Hatch, NM. When we go to AZ from MI, we usually take the road through Hatch and hot peppers are all over the place...

    I would think that getting the licenses - Fed, State, Local, etc. would be the "easy" part - the hard part is going to be finding an insurance company that will write you a liability policy. Perhaps there are companies that are NRA friendly who...

    Just a side note on sheep shears - a few years ago I bought a really attractive stag handle with a buffalo horn cap knife from a guy at a few market here in AZ. He was from Texas and did forging. The blade on the knife was one side of a sheep...

    6 gr. of Red Dot under a 255 grain Ideal/Lyman 454-190 shoots great out of my 7 1/2" Uberti Cattleman. Congrats - you'll love the one you're getting! And we'd love to see pictures when you get it!

    I agree with Mr. Peabody - it's at least worth a try. I normally use a 255 gr in my 45 but also shoot 200 gr with good accuracy. 5 gr. of Red Dot with a 200 gr in Schofield casing should work fine. Maybe shoot a bit differently than your normal...

    ,008 is a lot to size down - I'm assuming you are using soft lead - the lead has to go somewhere when sizing down and usually it will be the grooves that take the beating. Unless you have the sizing dies already, what you spend on Lee push through...
