    John Taylor replied to a thread Marlin 189? huh in Leverguns
    It's common to find head space problems on old lever guns. The pressure is usually not enough to stretch the brass but high enough to back the primer out. Had a 94 Win. come in that had .025" head space and the owner had been using it that way for...

    John Taylor replied to a thread Marlin 1893 32-40 in Leverguns
    Marlin barrels for smokeless are usually marked "Smokeless steel". Winchesters are marked Nickel steel which did not come out till 1895 for Winchester so all the rifle in 1894 were in 38-55 or 32-40 because they were waiting on the new barrels

    John Taylor started a thread 1886 in Leverguns
    Got a basket case 1886 Winchester in trade a few years back. The original barrel had been cut off so made a new octagon 30" barrel in 40-65. Got to the range for the first time this week to try it out. First shot on paper was 2" high and 2" to the...

    McGowen has been in Montana for about 11 years, not the same person but most of the same equipment. I quit using McGown when they would not stand behind two barrels that I sent back. I get most of my barrels from Green Mountain, X-caliber, Shilen...

    I clean them in a solution of citric acid, rinse and then tumble in 20-40 ground corn cob with Berry's Brass Polish. They come out shiny bright. If you want to preserve the shine, put some liquid car polish in some untreated 20-40 corn cob and...

    Educated guess I can just about bet the bank on 2 ingredients used most of the time at that period. Beeswax and Lard (to soften it up) Think about it, who in their right mind would buy Vegetable oil when lard was available everywhere. Cotton...

    1). Two new S&W magazines, I believe these fit just about every single stack 9mm pistol they ever made, but see the pictures for specific model numbers. $50 shipped. I'll take these. PM inbound. Fred

    I talked to them at the SHOT Show this past January about making .218 Bee and .25-20 brass, and they just laughed. When I told them Hornady was making .218 Bee brass, but that it was expensive, they said if they ever made it, it would be expensive....

    1. 9x21 (note this is not 9mm Luger). Pardon me but I'm not going to count all of them so I will estimate there is about 350 pieces. Mostly CP+P+ head stamp. All deprimed, ready to sizing and reloading. $15 plus $7 shipping. I'll take this. PM...

    Not taking away from anything or anyone but anything at 50yds really doesn't mean much IMHO. It means a lot if the groups showed evidence that one particular bullet shot better then the other no matter the distance. In this case the cast...

    50 yrd group customer simply reported the swaged 230 grain pill shot considerably better then the "as cast" at same distance in his firearm. Take it for what it's worth. Swage on! BT

    I replaced the hopper on one of my powder measures with polycarbonate, and Bullseye started etching it overnight, which is why I said it doesn't work.

    I haven't shot the 300BO yet or attempted accuracy at subsonic speeds but I read that the 230 grain cast boolits can be a challenge in the 300BO for both accuracy and expansion. I can only rely what my customer has shared with me...... Lee 230...

    Hornady will replace the plastic hopper, but if you leave most pistol powders in them, they're going to melt. Polycarbonate is just as bad. You can also measure the hopper and order chemical resistant replacements from McMaster-Carr, or...

    Just got a reply back from customer with these dies, he is shooting the 240ish grain HyTec coated bullet swaged in my die and getting nearly same hole accuracy at 50 yrds subsonic in his 300 BO! Also getting impressive expansion too. He reported and...
