    You can take this or leave it. I have read many times that the .43 Spanish is very close to the 44-77 Sharps caliber. That was a lesser known, but fairly popular (at the time) buffalo rifle. They are not interchangeable, but you should be able to...

    I picked up a B&M 311 115 GC mould some time ago (it was cheap) and got around to casting with it a short while back. It is close to a Lyman 311316GC mould. The difference is that the meplat on the B&M is smaller in diameter than the one on the...

    You may want to track down the article by Frank DeHaas in Guns & Ammo magazine in March 1964. That was a 6 page article (pages 46 thru 51) on starting with a Greek military Mannlicher/Schoenauer carbine and converting it into a near-1903 commercial...

    I bought a .38 Special hollow-point tool many years ago. It was a very well made two-piece tool. One piece slipped over the loaded case with a small hole in the front for the drill in the second piece. It was a pain to use for the reasons...
