    BBB--I am just glad that Uberti didn't install a cross-bolt Rem 870/Marlin levergun safety on their SAA repros. I can ignore things of that sort, but Hillary Holes in S&W wheelguns and like/similar superfluous speed bumps are a mild irritation.

    4.98 GPA means he has taken advanced credit classes, most likely AP - which qualify for college credit.

    No wait! No more than 1/3 of whatever oil your using, more than that you will exceed the capabilities of your waxes to absorb and hold the oil. You can try 20% instead of 33% and it will hold up to heat a little better. Less oil and you may lower...

    heres what nosler says about bullets melting. Add to the fact its only in the barrel for one fifteeth of a second that as soon as it leaves the barrel its being cooled but the air makes it pretty tough to believe a core can melt. Considering it has...

    allways said my cmmg 16 in 9mm was the most fun gun I owned. this one has taken over. my cmmg hasn't been out of the safe yet this summer. the cmmg is hands down more accurate. It will do an easy 1.5 inch at a 100 yards with loads it likes. This...

    My only Uberti Cattleman experience involves revolvers in 44/40 WCF and 45 Colt. In a word, flawless. I will buy others. The "safety" in my late 2012 44/40 is the base pin--push it inward about 3/16", and it catches the hammer before it strikes...

    9 parts beeswax, 6 parts softer parrafin (bought from a candle supply store) and 3 parts 2 cycle oil. It is a good blackpowder lube as it is soft but works fine in my 38, 9mm and 45 acp ammo. Might not work in more high pressure ammo like 44 mag,...

    OK, I will state Clearly that this not an offer to sell outside of swap and sell. No offer to buy from this thread. There are at least four very different versions of the Winchester tool. With out pictures any information is not going to help...

    I've shot lots of that stuff for practice and most of it goes bang. What doesn't I pull the bullets and ream the primer pockets to re-use the brass. The older pre-WW2 stuff uses the smaller diameter .206" primer vs. the modern .210" primer. Ream...

    I see no reason not to fire those rounds, at least the ones that will go bang. Corrosive priming is no big deal. Simply remove the barrel from your pistol and use a bore mop with soap and hot water and a few passes will remove all traces of the...

    Ordered some 303 British brass from Graf & Sons just now. Shuffling through the ammo cabinets and gun safe to figure out what I am taking to NCBS. Stuff to shoot, maybe a few things to sell, yadda yadda. Test-drove some 10/22 magazine loaders I...

    Walks-- Specific to the 357 Magnum levergun question--I would have loved to buy either a Miroku/Winchester 1892, or a Marlin 1894C with the side-gate, but both have been unobtainium for several years. I got tired of waiting on gunmakers or...

    Harry O is spot on regarding the .32-20 and I have learned to do what he is doing the hard way, trial and error) except that I don't use the Lee crimp die. I use .32-20 in 3 weapons, a Colt Army Special, Cimarron Uberti and a Marlin 04. The Uberti...

    I am getting things pre-set for the NCBS trip, and I dived into the ammo cabinets to inventory the 8 x 57 Chow. Good news--200 of the Lee 175 loaded, using 18.0 grains of 2400--and 50 of the 236 grain Cruise Missiles from the Lee group buy that...

    The inertial deformation of a very soft bullet will continue after the bullet leaves the bore. At what pooint the hardness of the alloy prevents this, I do not know. The longer the barrel, the less this post departure deformation occurs. See: The...

    That sounds reasonable, Nick39. My goal was to match my carry rounds as closely as possible. These loads extracted easily, and my impression was that I still had a little "gas pedal" left if I chose to go there. About 5 years ago, the shop went...

    Considering how strong a 44 1/2 is any midrange load or even a bit hotter is fine. Cast bullet loads should be no issue for a 44 1/2.

    The issue with the TOW sight is that windage adjustment they have with the two thumb screws on the side of the staff. It leans the staff, so the more windage you put into the staff, the more it will go left or right as you raise elevation. That...
