    They look like they t h u m p. I personally like the look of Blackhawks way more than their Super Redhawks. Something about the barrel extension just doesn't do it for me like the Blackhawks cleaner lines. I wish the barrel more resembled the...

    MrHarmless replied to a thread Mri in Our Town
    That's pretty much the exact opposite of what will happen if you force your way out of medical equipment and break things. I see a lot of people in this thread struggling with claustrophobia and similar. Pretty common, especially if you don't...

    You'd think, but at that PSI, even a straight wall cartridge would flatten primers, and based on Quickload (with some tweaks to make the burn rate accurate for straight wall data) as well as, extrapolated reduced load data from 500 S&W it wasn't...

    Some ejector wipe, as well as a bent rim, the latter of which opened my eye's pretty quick. Nothing wrong with 2400, I suspect I just started the ladder too high. Because of the whole straight wall thing, and the relatively low max pressure (33k...

    For powder and load data, I haven't used H4198 yet, but I planned too. I use H110 and have gotten spectacular accuracy out of a 16 inch barrel with Hornady FTX bullets with 39.5 grains. Like 1 ragged hole at 100. I'm still working on a...

    MrHarmless replied to a thread 8x57 Mauser in Cast Boolits
    I've had really good success with the Lee 330-220-1R (Used to come as .329, I think lee increased the size) sized to .323. I settled on about 20 grains of 2400, and shot very consistent 1.5 inch groups at about 60 yards. I powder-coat, and haven't...
