    I know this is extremely old post but I wanted to update. After owning my talon/hatsan 125 for a decade I found that somebody on YouTube posted how to take this crappy Trigger apart. It was actually pretty easy. The poster who I believe is a Smith...

    Mine was a bad one. My trigger was heavier than the pull gauge could read. Unfortunately Henry seems to have become content with how they are. If one day they decide to offer barrels, or other upgrades, than these could be a real treat. They do...

    I'm old, like more "traditional" models. I have several Henry lever guns and can't say enough good about the ones I have and over the years, I have owned Winchesters, Marlins, etc. as well. That said . . . . When I first looked at this one,...

    That is bizarre. I'd look for rough chambers. Better yet. Send it to Ruger, and say it's ejecting hard with 32 s&w. They will have it fixed in no time.

    There is more to primer flattening, making it questionable at best. As I've said, one of my SP101's severely flatten primers with factory ammo, and handloads as well. Yet my GP100 hardly ever badly flattens primers with anything besides the Federal...

    Oh, this is the keith bullet? For some strange reason my brain was still on the 358627 215 grain SWC. No, the Keith bullet should do with reletively mild loads like you are using. It is not all that finicky. I never was able to get any accuracy with...

    I used 3/4" EMT conduit for my target frame. It packs down nicely into a tent bag. It consists of five 5' long sections, two brackets, and the steel plate. I cut my own brackets nearly identical to these out of 1/4" steel plate....

    44 special is a fine caliber. I was just double checking, as it is one of the most notorious for non-expanding hollowpoints. I'm sure the gold dot's work well, they are about the best JHP (technically plated) bullet you can buy in most calibers. ...

    If you choose a jacketed hollow point, do the research. 44 special is especially picky on such bullets. As for the shooting, don't stage the double action trigger. The GP100 has a great trigger that doesn't stack. Just dry fire the heck out of it...

    I have no idea about a lever action, but the Lee 452-252-SWC cycles through my Sig P220 as slick as can be. Never had a hang up. I'm guessing both will work fine. Flip a coin.

    No. I've gone as far a .742" in a .731" groove 12 gauge. I don't recommend that as ideal though. Anywhere from .003" to .008" over bore (or groove if rifled) seems to work fine. It's the same reason you use .457" balls in a 45 caliber cap and ball...

    For all I know this load, or one very similar has been recommended before. This was in my H&R Tracker II 20 gauge, with a .6265" groove diameter. I tried half a dozen factory sabot slugs, none of them are even acceptable. Remington sluggers shot...
