    Hickock45 isn’t the only one having issues on YouTube with it with the cylinder not moving there’s a couple videos of some other guys too. How embarrassing for colt. I never saw a $359 king cobra or $498 anaconda ever do this back in the 90s.

    In the diminutive 32 S&WL cast the seating depth (not oal but the depth of the bullet seated into the case) is of greater concern regarding pressure than is bullet weight. The same holds true for the 32 S&W and the 32 H&R magnum. As and example; I...

    No, no 20 degree cold spells here where I live in Arizona. However, I used to shoot I did shoot 10.5 gr BD under the 358156, a healthy dose of BD under 125 gr JHPs and 16 gr BD under a 210 gr cast in my 41 magnum when I lived in NE Oregon and had...

    I just had a chance to test it with my scale. The trigger breaks between 40/41oz (I call it 2.5lbs) every time so basically 2 1/2 pounds now that I did the poor man trigger job. It Does have just a little bit of creep/travel before it goes off. If...

    My aging cooler I set up in the house with a bunch of frozen 2 L bottles in the bottom and some of my smoker grates on top of them to basically make a shelf to keep the meat out of the bottom of the cooler. I kept adding ice every day for a week and...

    Just take your grips off and remove one side of a hammer spring which takes all of three seconds to do it’ll bring your trigger down to about 2 pounds. I did it to mine and it breaks nice and light. If you don’t like it all you have to do is...

    The 35x57 is an excellent cartridge for use in Mauser actions or other actions with tapered side rails. It appears Good Cheer wants to rebore a SMLE or #4 303(?) so the 35x57 wouldn't be a good choice for that. I've formed 303 into a 35 RemR...

    I have four different centerfire rifles that I can consistently shoot .3” inch groups at 200 yards if I do my part and keep it steady on the bench. My avatar is from my POFP 415 with a 14 1/2 inch barrel at 100 yards off the bench of course. It’s a...

    I just got done cutting up both shoulders on one of my deer and ended up with 2 lbs. 1 oz. of some nice jerky strips. I’ll have to figure out which marinade I’m going to use and pull out my little chief smoker and get ready for business! I normally...

    Now I know why I only thaw one frozen quarter at a time. I bet you took me eight hours plus to cut up and wrap a whole deer. I would say on average the little over two hours time each time I did a shoulder or rear quarter. I’m slow but at least...

    I don't use Quickload as I actually measure the psi via an Oehler m43 PBL. You might try 9.0 to 9.3 gr Blue Dot. 9.5 gr BD runs 30,000 psi with a 168 gr cast . Velocity should be close to 1100+ fps out of a 4" barreled revolver. I shot up a...

    The last gun season is The holiday hunt which is December 24 through January 1. You can shoot as many antler deer as you want as long as you have tags for them and you can buy unlimited tags. I believe Bow hunting goes for another week after. I...

    I shoot a lot of the load RedlegEd mentioned in my TDs and also the Rapine 460-210-HB over 6 gr Bullseye. I also used Unique with 300 - 350 gr bullets. Yes, a double charge of powder can definitely wreck havoc with TDs so one must be extra...
