    Wayne Smith replied to a thread Low Carb or Keto Diet in Our Town
    Diets by definition don't work - simply because a diet is based on denial. 'I won't do this or eat that etc.' and what do you do once you have reached your goal? Go right back to the habits that made you fat in the first place. To be...

    The smaller the case - 9mm, 380, etc the more drastic the effect of changing COL on pressure. Be careful shortening the COL, you are reducing internal powder space.

    I had some money in Cabela's credit card so to use it I bought a Pietta 1860 Colt copy. Have their LeMat, EuroArms Rogers & Spencer, but no 1860 Colt. That's fixed.

    Very true but you can't use the normally much cheaper to purchase used rifle action to do a pistol since it becomes a short barrel rifle in the eyes of the ATF. It was a reply to

    You wouldn't be alone! Although some of the targets are so small, a trade gun is really put to task. Olives at 25 yards, anyone? Plus shooting through the loops on a pretzel without breaking them!

    I tightened mine as tight as I could - and thought about putting some locking fluid in there but haven't yet. If and when it loosens again I probably will.
