    I went & looked at just a few of my reloading manuals. Not all , but a few. Most of the ones that show pressure for loads for the 120+/- at the max. suggested loads show them at around 15,800 CUP. The max pressure SAAMI is at 21,500, if I am not...

    JBinMN replied to a thread kinda cold here in Our Town
    Gets that way here in MN on occasion as well. LOL ;) it was only -16F overnight & that is sort of "balmy" for this time of year. Right now it is 5F at 10:38AM with a wind chill of only -12F. Quite tolerable, considering where I live in MN... ...

    The little "mini- bottles' of booze around here are plastic now a days. Have not held a glass one in my hand since I flew domestic many years ago. Kind of cool you still have some available. ;)

    The pics show the muzzle end leading, and not the rest of the bbl.. Is the leading just there, or thru out the bbls? While what Ghosthawk says is true, that "fit is king", IMO, Dusty Bannister likely is going in the right direction with alloy...

    As I read through this topic, I am reminded of another topic... http://castboolits.gunloads.com/showthread.php?156622-75-000-Wadcutters-in-a-Model-27 It makes me wonder more about "breaking in a barrel" of a firearm. I also think it may have...

    While it is sad to hear of the loss of your friend, your mentioning the liquor bottle is a good idea since it appears to have worked well for you. Now it is time for me, or anyone who might be interested in doing so, to venture out to the local...
