    Thanks Rany! That was the info I was looking for. I’m just debating since my average shot will probably be 25 yards to just zero it a little further once I get out of the house with it. It’s 0° right now and I really don’t feel like sitting at a...

    Yep ! We are all like that . But in seeing and understanding missed opportunity it should heighten awareness to do better ? We are human and many times learn by trial and error .

    That looks like a cheaper version of the Competitor pistol. I really liked these styles of guns. They actually felt like a handgun, not like these Remington abominations.

    I can't blame you. The super redhawk might be the ugliest revolver ever made. You can't fault its performance though.

    I always see people recommend jacketed bullets. I tried about 300 of them. It didn't effect the constriction at all. Lapping, either firelapping, or hand lapping is the only way. Broaching is not a method a regular guy can use.

    I think both are over bloated guns, chambered for cartridges that are beyond what any possible benefit can be gained. I have a hard time believing you would ever feel troubled with a 44 magnum or 454 casull. If you felt you had to step up, 475...

    This does work very well for round ball, especially with soft lead. For buckshot though, I think it's a good way to get carpal tunnel syndrome.

    I'm still torn between water dropping or quenching out of an oven. I only use either oven quenching or water dropping for hardening bullets, not as a shortcut. I actually find air cooling easier. It certainly doesn't warp bullets. The problem I...

    Wow, that's a longer tube than I've ever dealt with. As said, there are offset rings that may work for this, but that honestly does not look bad to me.

    No. After a month of dinking around with the 575 improved minie, then a stint with the 578 minie, I've had enough of wad slugs. The size isn't the problem. The 575 cast right at .575", and the 578 I got .579" with COWW. The 575 with 20S1 wad gave me...
