    It will take a while to recover your grip strength as you will want to protect the stump for a while as its healing. Don't rush too fast to do pistol shooting with your right hand. But consider this as a perfect opportunity to reinforce your...

    Thanks to Outpost75 for showing the photos of the 38 "Super Police" loadings above. These are my first views of the cartridge. I now also see where Lyman #358-430 (195 grain RN) got its inspiration. #358-430 was one of my first mould purchases...

    I've had the same experience. When a business advertises as Christian owned and operated, I've learned to not do business there, because sure as shooting, they will try to screw the customer.

    Older Ideals were a proprietary thread, 8x36? or x38 I don't really remember. Most are the 8x32 and I think all Lymans are. It isn't a bad idea to get a mold rebuild kit for a 2 or 4 cavity mold if you have a lot. It is a cheap easy source for spare...

    Nice write up of what you travel with. I had to check the safe and make sure the single six mag, CZ75 (mm and 44 special blackhawk were still there. It appears you hit the weather right. We have had a nice September in the west.

    16kw Generac NG with an auto transfer switch. Runs the whole house including AC. If I went any bigger I had to go to a 200amp service and that would have driven the price way up. Cost about $6700.00 installed. The best money I ever spent for...

    On a different thread a guy used Lemishine with Simple Green to clean a Walther he picked up at a gun show. Remember that Lemishine is citric acid. This solution stripped the bluing off his pistol.

    The S&W "Victory" M&P 38/200 is a good shooter with decent service sights. NEI #169A atop 3.0 grains of Unique or 3.3 grains of Herco prompts about 700 FPS, and when they hit iron targets at 25 yards they make quite a WHOCK. The 150 grain #358477s...

    One Achille's Heel not mentioned so far concerning the Marlin 1894 examples in 44 Magnum is their rifling twist rate. For some reason, Marlin elected to use the old 44/40 WCF twist rate of 1 turn in 38 inches. This works fine with the 44/40's...

    That would be my point. Consumers rejected lower velocity of the 17 HM2. A low velocity 17 HMR load would fair no better.
