    ...............I'd picked this mould up many moons ago and haven't even warmed it up yet. I'm in the process now of inventorying all my moulds and would like to know what this one is supposed to be. Looks like a 30/31 cal, maybe 160/180 gr RNGC. ...

    ................As life continues on I've been selling of some unused firearms and other gun related odds 'n' ends the past several months. I had an 01 FFL for close to 20 years, but that was used for 'Receiving' :-) and there wasn't any shipping...

    .................This is a PS: to the above, I sure wish that somehow, someway the powers that be would jump out there and re-release a flatbolt version again in original chamberings! I'd buy one or two of'em. This one is chambered 38-55 and...

    ................I also have one. It's a rifle, 24" octagon bbl, blued, colorcased. Steve E recommended some heavy cast slugs for it and I can also recommend them. I like the RCBS 45-270 SWC, and have also used the Lee 458-340F (lube-size...

    ..............Looks like you have it shooting :-) Knowing how those iron sights are, that's some smart shooting and adding in the 'Match Grade Trigger' it's downright amazing at 100 yards. Nice landscape BTW. My Dad lives in Pima, AZ down the road...

    What follows here is a little off-topic, but I add it as a "FWIW" notation. I have had long association with both 357 Magnum and 44 Magnum revolvers, and have always enjoyed their capabilities and flexibility. Off and on, I have owned a couple...

    ..............The triggers on these things aren't really conducive to letting the user make adjustments. They're not hung on a pivot pin, and their mechanical advantage isn't great. In addition if the sear surfaces aren't parallel you'll find (watch...

What is it that this government feels they need to do, but can't do, unless the citizens of this nation are first disarmed?
