    The need for such a boolit should be communicated to the gentleman in Croatia who I bet could turn out a beautiful mold for this cartridge. GF

    My vote is for the Ruger LW Commander with stainless slide. Mine has a good enough trigger and with the titanium firing pin it does not need any of the firing pin safeties some other manufacturers use. Mine likes factory RN and HPs as well as hand...

    Hogtamer: These are all with the carboard base wad. Based on the Federal load data provided above the Fed 12S3 wad should be used with a 1 1/8 oz shot load. Do you have an opinion whether that wad and the recommended powders would work with the...

    My brother just visited his local indoor range and was given a small trash bag of once fired Federal high brass maroon-colored hulls for a big $4.00. The hulls are marked Federal Field and Range and had been loaded with #7 steel shot. Will these...

    I have found that I like dipping my .45-70 and T/C .50 and .54 Max Balls better than pan lubing and it's not as much mess. I use Ranch Dog's method just fine and I'm a bit of a klutz myself. For smokeless I use 45-45-10 and for BP I use either...
