    The only time I remember checking 9mmX19 case length was for my Ruger NM Blackhawk Convertible. And since some one was nice enough to steal the 9mm cylinder off the shooting bench before I got to try it. I haven't felt the need to do it again.

    I just gave up on W231, switched to Clays for .45Colt loads for Cowboy Shooting. Cleaner then 700x, so I started using for Trap/Skeet loads and Cowboy loads, one powder for both seemed a good compromise. Finished it up, by loading 3.2grs under a...

    I've never heard of a Factory or a cartridge Handloaded with a J-FN going off in the mag tube. Not even Round Nose's. I've loaded 1,000's of FN & RN in .30-30, .35Rem and .45-70. Never gave it a thought. I think there is a very small area on...

    I've had one since they came out; .45Colt - 7" bbl. I don't think they are better or faster loading then a Colt SAA. The SAA is easier to maintain. And May GOD Help you if you ever dry fire it on an Empty Chamber. That Exceptionally Long Hammer...

    I use 20 parts lead, 4 parts COWW. I throw in 1 or 2% tin for shine and flow. Ends up around 12 BHN after water quench. BUT over time they get harder. Like most will agree, fit is important. Bullets need to obturate!

    I cast RN, SWC, FP, WC and TC bullets for Revolvers in .32Cal up to .45Cal. For paper punching and general use it's hard to beat a SWC Keith Bullet. You can load it light for Paper & Heavy for Hunting. For over all use, if I had only one mold...

    That's the difference, the separation, the division and the distance between the 2 worlds of spirituality and secularism. Human nature always demands the evidence, the proof, the tangible substance and the big picture to believe. Immortal/spiritual...
