    Got out with the chrono today. I don't think this load is going to do what I want. 875 fps avg. SD 7 fps. Will try some heavier loads with the same bullet and powder and see what happens. If the groups don't open up too much and I can get the vel up...

    My ability to shoot well isn't a problem. I'm good enough to have medalled at the nationals, so I think that isn't a problem. I enjoy shooting small pieces of clay birds off-hand at 100 yards on the rifle range. Mostly I hunt from a blind so I can...

    I found a load with a 255 gr. rn flat point that my 1873 absolutely loves (.45 Colt). 1 inch 5 shot groups at 50 yards with peep sights. I haven't had a chance to chrono the load yet, but will soon. I want to use it for whitetails. The reason I'm...

    Every week we throw out hundreds of hulls at our club. Most are Federals, but remington hulls are common too. I don't pick up hulls these days since I have a 30 gal. can of WAA gray hulls, once fired. At my age, those should last the rest of my life!

    I've owned .22s, .30-30s, .357s and .45 colts. I've had Henrys, Marlins, Winchesters and Ubertis. I've had a dozen different models. Today, I own only one; a Uberti 1873 in .45 colt. It is the only one that I've ever been completely happy with.

    jimb16 replied to a thread 1895 chilean mauser in Military Rifles
    Just saw an ad for the 1895s at Cabela's, if I remember correctly. Prices for a reconditioned rifle ranges from $799 up to $899! NO WAY! They may be historic, but they aren't worth anywhere near that!
