    Are you looking for the 2 1/2” or 3” version? If 2 1/2” I may be able to help. Froggie

    I’m a bit surprised that our friend beagle hasn’t chimed in on this. He has discussed this revolver and cartridge combo with me extensively in the past. Froggie

    You’ll have a lot of space at the base of the case of those “reformed” rounds. No way I’d shoot them like that in my gun. If you need to reform cases to 44-40, wouldn’t it be better to start with 45 Long Colt cases? The movie industry makes “5 in...

    I am not particularly recoil sensitive. While the 11 oz S&W 357's and the S&W 460/500 can be brisk they still don't hold a candle to the early Contender grips paired with some of the lightweight big bore barrel combs. I've split the web on my...

    Looks like it has the potential to be a fun gun. I would not be comfortable without knowing for sure about the lock up… that seems to be a characteristic of a worn gun, often in lower quality guns with steel of questionable quality, not what I...

    I’ve had too many experiences with Numrich sending me some random part similar to whatever it was I ordered. I use them pretty much as a last resort unless it’s a part that absolutely cannot be mistaken. Froggie

    Pics of the headstamp and side view would be helpful. The 0.735" is 0.163" shorter than a 45 ACP (0.898"). The only 45 cal. case that I am aware of that is that short is the British .450 Adams.

    Pure Carnauba is hard!! Years ago a fellow caster gave me some pieces of pure CW and it was like chunks of tan colored hard plastic. Randy Rat sold me some in the form of shavings… much easier to melt into my mix. The stuff on cheese may...

    I am a shooter that hunts. I normal shoot about 20,000 rounds a year. I like shooting so I shoot whatever as much as I want or need. The least shot is my smokeless muzzleloader. When I first got it I shot it a lot for load development. Now it's...

    Dtdk, I meant to mention before, the standard Ideal/Lyman mould for the 45-70 carbine load, a RNFP 405 grain bullet is a great place to start for casting 45-70s. There are better bullets for some specific jobs, but I’ve never found one all around...

    I can’t swear to this, but I’ve been told that the main component of the MM bottle seal is Carnauba Wax, noted for two things, one of which is high melting point. IIRC, early records were made mostly of Carnauba for its high MP and toughness. It...
