    Thanks! My 32-20 HE looks just like yours, I was thinking it was more like a K frame but I see that is not the case. J frame grips it is, to make something more like what you have there so I can hold on to it. -Nobade

    Good deal! That is great to know. Those 581s are so much nicer than anything being made now. -Nobade

    Will a K frame grip fit an I frame or are they different? Thanks! -Nobade

    Wasn't the 5mm rem mag model 591 on a slightly longer action? Or at least had a longer ejection port? Not sure you could eject a loaded round if you built it on a 581. -Nobade

    Yes, I like the Tipton carbon fiber ones once I fix the bearings so they spin properly. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk

    After trying different wads I have settled on using a newspaper wad to compress the powder and a .060" ldpe wad seated with the bullet. That works better than anything else I have tried. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk

    Check the twist rate in the barrel to determine what bullet is going to be your best bet for subsonic loads. Faster twist = bigger bullets. -Nobade

    Thanks, but I can embarrass myself adequately shooting righty, lol. I shoot a fair bit of trap but skeet is just an amusing diversion for me. One of my skeet guns is equally happy shot from either side and I can shoot a riot gun from either shoulder...

    Great thread, OP! Been on my mind for the past few days, I think I need to dabble a bit with a 30WCF in the near future. To address your concern I think the only finicky thing about a 94 is shooting technique; more specifically bag placement. It's...

    I dunno. The round barrel on a rifle balances better for me. I really like the balance of a 94 short rifle and octagonal barrel, tho.

    Historically speaking IMR4895 is probably as close as we can get to the original DuPont .30 smokeless powder used in the 30WCF but it may actually be a bit slower. I think there are better powders today but have never felt the 30WCF was finicky. I...

    ahhh , i did not catch that is is a "hunter" barrel. this has the fast twist rifling, 32 inch i think and if i remember correctly. this will over spin your round ball and scuttle the patch's. i thought we were talking about a 60 or 66 inch twist . ...

    If that is a Lyman barrel then chances are good that it will not settle down (short of scrubbing with valve grinding compound) without 100 to 200 shots thru to smooth it out. Can shorten this amount with paper patched boolits (tho prolly not...

    222 Mag is a lot longer. Even if you size it in a 223 die, the end of the neck will run into the end of the chamber. That won't make the throat any shorter. For what you want to do, set the barrel back however many turns the throat is long and...

    The Hornet barrel is threaded. Just use a barrel vise and unscrew it like most any other rifle. And yes, setting it back and making the headspace correct (use a case, not the SAAMI gauge which is too long) will help it. Or, as mentioned, you can...

    You can make a blow tube with a 90 deg. fitting on the back if you really want to, but I duplex load my levergun ammo so I can keep shooting. Yeah, it's cheating but really works well. You can use the right bullet, good powder, good lube, etc and...

    Probably work just fine as long as the lead is soft enough to let you close the bolt, and paper thin enough to not be resizing the bullet when you final size it. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk

    Kind of what I figured it was supposed to be. Only rub is my chamber is barely bigger than the throat, and a cartridge glued on like that won't go in the hole. So I just seat the bullet with a short starter and drop the cartridge in behind it. Works...
