    I think I've seen primer tins like that in an old Frankfort Arsenal reloading tool set for the 45-70, or possibly a 30-40 set. I can't remember where I saw it, maybe Bud Waite's Trapdoor Springfields book?

    Now you have gone and done it! Just as I was going to work with my Swiss 96/11 this summer, you are going to make me dig out the old Vetteri and try again. As I was short of .348 cases I didn't shoot it much, and I never even thought about 50-70...

    John Wootters recommended 10gr. in the .357 using the 157gr. Lyman 357446 cast of linotype, to reach 1,265 fps. That load is listed in Propellant Profiles, third edition, as one of the author's pet loads. I had a 4# keg for awhile, until a buddy...

    I made it a point to show my wife, she thought it was kind of cool, and I think it surprised her that it didn't immediately explode. Maybe some people will see this and not be so paranoid about a little powder in the garage.

    I found a bag of #4 shot and about 30 lbs of .44 swaged bullets in the lead bin at the junk yard, but the bullets are so dirty I think I'll just melt them into bullets I can use. Junk yard charges $0.75 a pound and seldom has anything worth buying...

    During WWII some reloaders removed the anvils from fired LR primers, flattened out the firing pin indention, and inserted a SP primer into the old LR cup. When seated they were above the face of the cartridge, but if it chambered you were good to...

    I will caution anyone loading pointed bullets to carefully check cartridge OAL. I loaded some .30 Rem with spitzers without checking COAL, then proceeded to jam rifle up but good. It required disassembly to get the offending cartridge out, so only...

    MOA, that cartridge looks like 8x58R Sauer, so it might be a misprint. I looked it up in Cartridges of the World

    Savage made a model 3 single shot that was comparable to a 510 or a 67,inexpensive but very well made. I sold a friend my Rem 510 when his kids were old enough to start shooting, it had a set of fine King sights and if a sparrow was within 100 yrds...

    Before anyone rebarrels one of the 12.7x 44 rifles, I would urge you to give it a fair shooting trial, because it is a very good cartridge which can be reloaded with 50-70 dies and slightly altered 50-70 cases. I bought one advertised with a "fair"...

    I think the reason behind the robust mainspring was to keep the hammer forward in case of a ruptured primer. they must have had some problems, so they also designed that unique gas vent in the breech block. Some of the later commercial Husqvarna...

    I saw a little pistol similar to yours, had a block that fit the frame and held in by the cyl. pin, and was bored through and chambered to make it a single shot.
