    Music wireis an old standby for years. My gunsmith shooting buddy told me anout it 25-30 years ago. He trained under PO Ackley in Trinidad. BTW, I ordered some .080 from McMaster Carr the other day. Wire was about $6.00 and shipping was $10.00;...

    RC ... look at the 28 cal molds he has for the 7mm. The 140 and 150 grains look great and having him cut them at 280 inch on the body should make a great 270 WCF boolit. His mold price is the same for modifying current diameters or having a new mold...

    Thanks fella's. Great info. Will get the Lee on its way. Measured the fired case mouth's on some cases that Dad shot through the 54 and they measure out at .280 ... pretty much on the dot. Sooo ... doing what I have found to work on every rifle I...

    So what does your Lee 277-135 drop at size diameter wise? Also ... does 10 grain Red Dot give 2000ish FPS?

    My journey began with the 270 Winchester at a very young age. Probably 7 or 8 years of age. My dad allowed me to shoot grampa's 270 which he bought for .05 cents at a punch board in Declo Idaho. A brand new model 54 Winchester in 270 WCF. Lotza...

    Brent, thanks a million! However I just ordered a small roll as insurance. It's people like you, Don Mc and many others willing to help that makes BP shooting such a great sport! :-)

    Brent piano wire was the first thing I checked for, unfortunately I didn't have the correct size but will be ordering some. Like Boz330 I used a drill bit which hopefully works for awhile.

    No, I didn't contact them. After waiting 3 times longer for it to be made than I was told I wasn't going to go that route, especially when the chamber wouldn't even accept a new 40-65 Starline case or a new FL resized 45-70 case that was trimmed to...

    I'm not sure of your question. I merely indexed the broken firing pin base in a lathe chuck, drilled a hole of the correct size and red loctited a new contoured pin in place. A simple operation that should work very well. The tip of the firing...

    I've had two firing pins break in my new C Sharps 1885 in under 500 rounds. The first one I figured was bad luck, but the 2nd one in less than 100 rounds fired is just ridiculous. No dry firing without a cartridge being fired, so that's not the...

    Hands down ... 38 WCF!!! Easy on lead. Very easy recoil. 150's and 175's boolits. As Don mentioned ... easy to reload. I also find the 38's to be a very handsome cartridge. My original '73' is so chambered, and I will say that recoil is like...

    Nice. I missed the 54 chambered in 30 WCF. Think it was choice too. Under 700 dollars! Ho hum ... win some, lose some.

    Can anybody tell me what cartridges were factory chambered in the Winchester model 54? I am looking at one at what seems a very good price but have never heard of the model 54 being chambered in the 30WCF (30-30). This seems like an unlikely...

    Nice ... I will look. So you built a "Chunkgun" using a Unertl scope? Adds even more intrigue to an already fun sounding shooter! I even have a 10 X Unertl scope already. Seems like a 50 slow twist for patched ball shooting in a rigid heavy barreled...
