    "The next shot sounded slightly, very slightly, different. But nothing for me to suspect a squib load, it had a report almost as loud as a normal shot." If the OP's loads were correct it sounds to me like the 2nd shot was a "squib load" and the...

    The original 7.65 Argentine was loaded with a 211 gr RNFMJ at a nominal velocity of 2130 fps out of the long rifles. That was changed to a 185 gr FMJ BT at a nominal velocity of 2467 fps out of the longer barrels. I believe the rear sight...

    I have a Browning 1886 rifle and a saddle ring carbine. Never had any issues so I never took them apart. I have no idea how close to original they are. I picked up the saddle ring cheap due to some deep stock scratches. Just picked up a blank...

    Comparing one animal to another means nothing. Comparing the same cut of meat from the same animal is easy. Age some, freeze some and prepare them at the same time. Question answered.

    One more point on the tolerancing. Normally manufactures tend to shoot for the middle of the tolerance. With gage pins they tend to be very close to the plus or minus tolerance. A .0002 plus will be very close to .0002" over and a .0002" under...

    The TW ammo has a lot # of 41609 and it is in clips and the cloth bandoleers. The LC has a lot # of 35360. I did not see a year. I am not going to open the boxes to check the brass. None of the boxes are opened. But on the side of the boxes...

    You might use the data in Lyman CBH #4 for the 265 gr cast as a guide.

    Back in the late '60s and '70s I had probably a dozen of them (both Colt and S&Ws) go through my hands. Also a couple M25s. I still have one S&W M1917 that had been altered with a M1911 rear sight dovetailed into the top strap and a higher blade...

    Either one will work for you. Most use the minus tolerance (.0000,-.0002) pins. The tolerance selection is mostly to ensure the pin tolerance doesn't allow a bad part. Example it a hole with 1.000" max and a .999" min. You would select a minus...

    That's the best part for him. This are metro herd reductions. They use SWAT team shooters and the PAID cleaning crew shows up at sunrise.

    There is no disagreement. What I said was "fit is not always "king".......". I also said; "My testing has revealed that a bullet over .003 of groove diameter will give less accuracy and probably some leading if the lube isn't correct." Thus...
