    I still have the other stock. That so ridicules as you know. But I live in a very remote area & do not plan to shoot it but on my own land. I have seen videos of others doing the same. Funny thing is I let a local sheriff look at it, & he never...

    I grew up on it. My Dad loaded it in just about every cast bullet load with the exception of His Bullseye Competition Loads and Hot .357Mag & .44Mag loads. And that is a lot of .380, .38Spl, .44Spl , .45Colt, .45ACP Hardball. And a bunch of rifle...

    Wouldn't that be .327 Fed Mag. And It's a light cartridge. If you're going to put it in a heavy rifle, you might as well go with a bigger cartridge. I think the 1st batch of 1894CL's in .32-20 were Great Guns. Wish I still had mine. And...

    I will put You in My Prayers tonight. I know how hard it is to watch a Parent suffer until the end. We had to do it twice. My Wife and I are hanging on by our fingernails too. Prayers help sooth the Soul.

    I shot my CVA mountain rifle in club matches in the late 1970,s. I always placed in the top 5 or better. I shot 50 grains 3fffg. At 50 yard 2inch groups off hand were common. I still have that rifle. Fly

    Walks replied to a thread Lee Mould Handles in Casting Equipment
    RCBS has made the same handles since they bought out Lachmiller/Ohaus. Lyman just changed over to the Saeco type. And as far as I know Lee handles fit all Lyman 2cav and RCBS. N.O.E., MP and Accurate too. So what is your question ?
