    Bull, remind yourself and your daughter - when we are with God we are never alone, those without God are always alone. More than likely you will find that there are several like you in the Church, but no one notices them because they are quiet. ...

    Wayne Smith started a thread Rossi 357 in Leverguns
    A friend of mine has a Rossi 357 lever rifle. I think he has only shot 38's in it. Had it to the range and put one of my 357's in it and the case stuck - and he says it does sometimes with the 38's. I've expanded a 357 case so he can check for...

    I did too, Ric. But I thought Dad would be upset losing a rooster, so I used a broom. When he came at me I swatted him. Picked him up and slammed him againsr the back of the pen. He never bothered me again. I must have been all of five years...

    I would be worth casting with it to see what diameter it actually casts. Modern 44-40's tend to run .430" just like 44 Mags.

    For shooting a lever rifle pay attention to bullet length. My best friend comes over every once in a while to use my Lyman 457122 Gould HP mold for his Marlin. I can guarantee that it fits.
