    Old Sillywett cartridge

    How many remember the old .375 SM cartridge. It was at one time the #1 cartridge for revolver silhouette.

    Without the dark night, you would never see the bright stars...

    You can live forever if you give up all of the things that make it worthwhile.

    Like the $50 Army Jeep you used to see advertised in old Fields & Stream classifieds---

    I've heard about it, but never seen one.
    Everyone can learn from their mistakes.
    However; it's less painful, and cheaper to learn from the mistakes of others.

    Old age and treachery will always overcome youth, and skill.

    OK folks. Enough of this idle chit chat. This ain't no retirement home.
    EVERYONE!!
    Back to your oars. The Captain wants to waterski.

    Wow!!! Had not seen that in a bit. I had one in a TC at one point. Guy at my club wanted it more than I did! Sent it and all the brass down the road.

    Remember it. Almost got my hands on one of the DW revolvers.

    I bought a box of brass & turned it into 30 Herrett, no trimming required.
    A 375 Super Mag Dan Wesson was on my "gotta get one" list. Got married instead.
