    You can cut your own wads, but they work a lot better with black powder. With smokeless you have so much space to use up, that you end up with 3/4 of a shell of essentially confetti. The best things to make yourself are overshot cards and felt wads....

    Yes, there is a spring underneath for the sight blade. I could shorten it a little bit, but nothing significant. The gun is at the gunsmith now. I have an extra sight to play with. I'm going to try to fit the Lyman #16 adjustable sight blade into...

    I've used all the calibers I listed in post #51. I have not done too much with the 357 magnum or 45 acp brass, ond only tried 444 marlin once. I have used it quite a bit in 41 and 44 magnum. The caliber I've used the most by far is 327 federal. ...

    I ordered a 60# of lead last year and was watching the tracking - the tracking showed that it had been delivered to my residence but I sure couldn't find it. I called the local PO twice and gee . . . "oh yea . . . we found it. It's here at the PO...

    I don't know about the method, but Starline is the bottom rung with annealing consistency. Their brass is thicker and tougher than most brands, which some people might like. I never measured, but Starline brass is visibly thicker than any other...

    I shoot Starline because it is the ONLY option currently out there for brand new 327 federal brass. I also have a handful of other cartridges like 357 magnum, 41 magnum, 44 magnum, and 45 acp. I'm not going to say it's bad, but Starline makes fair...

    I tried my browning 800 express 22 pistol right before dark. I tried predator, crow magnum, and rocket pellets at approx 15 yards if I had to guess. The predators grouped around 1 3/4” or more, the crow magnums were about the same. The rockets put...

    Do you have a spring in your gun or is it piston driven? I hear “spring gun are hold sensitive. My rifle has a piston in it so from what I’ve read it’s more forgiving. My Browning 800 express 22 cal pistol is a springer but I believe with the...
