    Coonan 357 1911 Maybe I've been out of the loop a little but this gun amazes me that it can shoot wheelgun rounds in it! Think the only other pistol manufacturer that chambers 357 mag is Magnum Research (Desert Eagle)? Correct me if I'm wrong....

    I too have that Lee 429-208-WC. I've had a 2cav for 30+yrs. And just recently was able to buy a 6cav from another Member that purchased it in an old group buy. It drops a 208gr bullet at .431 cast from #2 alloy. That may be a bit hard for most...

    The difference that I've found in My 1894CS w/Micro-groove is the Velocity gain is more readily obvious when using the slowest powders. IMR4227, 2400 & WW296 show the biggest velocity gain over what is achieved in a 6" revolver. I also used...

    I sort brass, especially when testing. That way if something “out of the ordinary” happens, I can rule that it was or wasn’t the fault of brass. Called it “OCD” but I like to be consistent. Occasionally I will load mixed brass for plinking but not...

    Just an interesting bit of info. About 35 years ago a friend got a box of 500 Hardcast bullets, they were .44cal 240gr SWCBB with a hard blue lube. I loaded up a 100rds for him with 9.5grs of Unique in a .44Mag case. We went out to a spot in the...

    I found a "rubberish" 5rd cartridge slide at a junk table at a small Gun Store when I was 10, .25cents. Been using it for 55+yrs. NO Verdigris. On the other Hand when I was Cowboy Shooting, I still loaded from My cartridge belt. So I always took...

    Yep. Grew up on it. Used the Hornady 117gn RN over H4895 and 100gr Spire Point with the same Powder. Could keep both Bullets into 1 1/2" at 100yrds with the open sights that came on the Rifle when it was built in the late 1930's. I was young with...

    A .45Colt loaded with 36grs of Black Powder under a 255gr FN is not a light load. Neither is a 200gr FP over 36grs of Black Powder in a .44WCF case. The (new) Solid head cases only allow 36grs of 3F Black Powder, unless you wanna trickle 38grs...

    Great Bullet, can't help you. This old man still uses 3.5grs of Bullseye or Titegroup for .38Spl. And 6.5grs of Unique in .357Mag brass for my M27's and Big Blackhawks. That .357mag load with Unique is ONLY for S&W M27/28 and Ruger NM...

    Now I know where My Dad got the idea for the decoy weights we used 50-60yrs ago. Of course those we sand cast of Pure Lead.

    Will say some prayers for your Aunt and the family! I, too, as many others do sometimes, become indecisive about "crossing over". It's just not up to us as to when we should go. Will never forget the look on "Mama's" face the minute she passed. With...

    I bought My first .270WCF in 1974. It was my first New Bolt Hunting Rifle. Took my 2nd Elk with it that fall. For some reason I've never cast any .270WCF loads. Just skipped it and went down to .257 Cal, For .250S, .257R & .25-06 I ended up...
