    Can I assume 44 special? Alliant says a 225 gr SWC with 7.8 grains Unique will do 1,043 fps in a 5.5" barrel. Personally I think that might be a bit optimistic. Hogdon says a 220 grain with 7.5 grains 800x will do 956 fps in an 8" barrel, which...

    I might not disagree with you on 38 special, although I personally feel 9mm luger has a lot of merit. The LCR is a handful with 357 magnum to put it mildly, it's basically a flinch development tool. As for 327 federal, you are incorrect on the...

    This is just a heads up for those looking for new American assembled binoculars. Meopta used to be THE binocular after Leupold discontinued the gold ring. I finally broke down and bought the Meopro 8x42 HD. Well, they are no longer assembled in the...

    Wow, Charter arms offers a 41 magnum bulldog? And Ruger still won't make a 41 magnum GP100? No doubt 41 magnum offers more usefulness than 44 special or 45 ACP. 45 ACP would be a fun range gun, but I'm not sold on the ejector. For a bedside gun...

    Personally I think .410 is a shotgun that should just ride off into the sunset. It serves no good purpose. It's an experts gun, not because it makes you a better shot, but it makes you a better hunter. It's still shot coming out at a similar...

    Being as handguns are really only range toys in canada, I can't imagine any significant group moving to the LCR.

    No doubt ugly as sin, but I still have not sold my LCR as it is a great revolver. The Heft of the SP101 can be an advantage or disadvantage. The LCR is lighter, slimmer, and the double action pull is butter. I actually like the grips on the LCR...

    I really think 327 federal has what it takes to replace the 38 special, however, 38 special is just too far entrenched in America. 357 magnum is about as useful as it gets in a sixgun. You can load it up or down, or shoot 38 special. You can...

    For me the answer is only buy when they waive the hazmat fee. Powder Valley is the only place I've found that makes buying online worth it. I have bought once from Precision Reloading too. Powder Valley is usually far below what you see in stores....

    It's true single shots are a recoil concern. I am currently teaching my nephew to shoot at 7 years old. I've got him on an H&R single shot 20 gauge with powder puff reloads, and my Henry big boy 327 federal rifle. I forget the exact load, but it was...

    Stubborn is right. I really tried my best to get a PRB to shoot like you show in that picture. Maybe it would be wise for me to just say screw 54 caliber, and re-bore right to 58 in a slower twist. As for swabbing between shots, this is a huge plus...

    So what you are saying is that both barrels are hitting dead on at 25 yards, and the 14 inch barrel hits 12"-14" higher than the 18 inch barrel at 50 yards? That simply isn't possible, and with 8" groups, something else is going on. If you are...

    I used Carnauba Red extensively for a couple years, and then tried Blue. In all honesty, I could not tell one bit of difference in lubesizer flow, tackiness, smell, anything. As far as I'm concerned they are they exact same lube. Neither worked in a...

    I'm not aware of one person that has got the 155 gr SWC, in any flavor, to shoot well. I don't know if it's the balance or what, but it's not a bullseye level design. You're doing better than I did. I was in the 8" range at 50 yards with the 160...

    Yes my Star sizer broke (a steel part no less), and Magma is no help at all. Thankfully I bought it used, I would never buy new from them. Lee on the other hand often sends out parts for free just from asking. If not, they have a lifetime...

    Personally I think they are right on the money with the 3" LCRX. I have not had a chance to measure one, but the only thing I found wrong with my standard LCR is the short ejector rod. If the 3" version has a ejector rod as long as the SP101, they...

    brewer12345, I'm glad you got it worked out. If I could buy a drop in 1" barrel for my Renegade that didn't cost more than the entire rifle, I would. Sorry guys, I've been away. I read back through the entire thread, and everyone seems to be...
