    I have ten or twelve powder measures, not sure. I use lots of Unique and since I acquired the RCBS Little Dandy I use it and I have found it so consistent that I no longer bother to weigh. Of course I am talking only of pistol rounds.

    At the range Buckshot and I go to nobody picks up brass except to throw in into the brass bucket, especially 223 brass. Most people will pick up brass and give it to me if I ask about it. I do take rimmed brass but you don't see much of it anymore,...

    Andy, the holster is very well made but it appears to be for a single action pistol rather than a double action, at least to me.

    Attached is a picture of cordite from a WWII British 303. The small disc was under the bullet.

    At the range I go to the range officer will bring over the brass bucket he has collected from all the others and ask me if I wanted any of it. Now I usually say no. I can only store so much. I have run out of room. Of course if there were some...

    All good advice, it pays to play it safe. Remember what a quarter inch cost Randy Weaver?

    I remember reading that Elmer Keith once blew the loading gate off a Colt SA using the old load of 40 grains of black powder in a Colt 45. He did say it was a balloon head case but I don't think he mentioned whether the powder was FFF or not. The...

    I simply drive the bullet out with a wood dowel. Takes little time and doesn't need all that elaborate set up.

    I think Brownel sells an after market grip frame in blued steel for a little over $100. You could buy one made of stainless from Ruger.

    GOPHER SLAYER replied to a thread Truck camper? in Our Town
    I had one built for a 1/2 ton truck that had over-load springs on it and it looked much like the one pictured. Since my wife and I are short we had it built to match our height. We crossed the US several times and kept for many years. It worked out...

    Is there a difference in a Swedish stripper clip and any other Mauser clip. or Springfield for that matter? I have lots of stripper clips, both brass and steel but I have no idea what they are worth, if anything.

    I should have clarified what I was referring to as the P08. The 9MM Luger was called that because the German Army adopted it as their side arm that year just as the Browning design is called the 1911.

    I think only the military pistols were limited to four digit serial numbers. I have seen commercial lugers with five digit numbers. All the commercial Lugers I have seen were 30 cal. As a side note, there was no such thing as a luger pistol in...

    While we are on the subject, I have got to throw this in the mix. Sighting in is no problem if you just watch how it is done in the movies. A good example is The Shooter with Mark Walberg. He portrays an expert Army sniper and is recruited to do...

    I like tang sights. I have them on two of my single shots. They are both adjustable for windage. The one on the Stevens is a Lyman and the one on the Hi-Wall is a Marble.
