    Probably useless information but here goes . I have 2 about a 1986 and a 2016 . They have 1-32" twists . Both shot well enough to kill hogs inside 60 yd . They are built on the same action as the 44 mag if they have an "M" serial number....

    Mine was a Bicentennial New Model BlackHawk 45 Colts 7.5" . I don't know about mitigation of recoil but I prefer the "SAA" style with a Pachmar grip . About 1200 fps with a 265 gr bullet it'll pull the base pin out and anything over a 250-265...

    It's stated in the Lyman 43rd edition to leave the last pour in the mould . In west central NV I had no rust issues. To such a degree that it took 10 weeks of the swamp cooler blowing across a new brass mould and dozens of casting runs to...

    If it was packed in GI package .......I think it's been a while it's about 4400 rounds per box . The boxes are like 108# per box with 4 30 cal cans inside each . A pallet is 36 boxes . 3 layers of 12 on a 4048 . Short of an Excursion or 3500...

    The actual killer of the 257 Roberts isn't that it's a 25 cal . The 6mm Rem , 6.555 ,757,857, and 957 all have one thing in common that kills them in the modern market . They are too long for the short action and have 3/8-1/2" left over in the...

    Currently all of the Italian clones are under the Beretta umbrella. QC has most certainly improved since 2015 or so when they were aquired . I have a 1978 brass 1858 Pietta . I guess I've had it about 10 years. When I got it the nipples were...

    I had a good start with both an NOE 270-140 and a 266469 . I sized the 469 .265 and paper patched up to .272 . The 270-140 casts at .272 . At this point I need all the help I can get the sights in GI trim are not easy for me to hold on point ,...

    I've cast from 37 gr 22s up to a .690 ball in singles to 8 cavity monsters in iron , aluminum and brass moulds . The 5 cav 225-37 was hard because keeping it hot was a chore . The 8 cav 196 gr 45 cal mould was hard because it took 2800 gr to fill it...

    I have one . Sportered before I got it . Slopped out but no worse that is 6.5 sister Type 38 . It sports a .3165 groove , I have 7.7 dies but use an undersized expander ball in a 857 neck die leaving it just right for the .318 bullet .... I haven't...

    It's a through pin . Thought it might have an internal snap ring or the like.

    Off and on I've been in possession of or using this press since Dad bought it new in 71-72' . It came in a Pacific - Hornady box and is Hornady red but has the Pacific tag on it . The owners manual says it's a Multi Power 'C' , until this morning I...

    I once owned an XD40 and a High Point carbine. About the only thing that would put me off a revolver would be heavy cylinder or frame pitting across the strap . Poor aesthetics make buying a donor or parts cheaper . Where you going to buy an N...

    I have the cousin in a 95 Mauser 45 Raptor. 250-265s even in pretty excited loads were quite pleasant to shoot . I didn't chronograph those more than casually , 21-2200 fps no where near the rocket sleds reported some yr ago pushing 2800 fps . I...

    I almost made a very expensive mistake on a Colt 1917 . Take the grips off and submerge it in a cake pan of your favorite solvent for an hour or 2 then cycle it submerged 10-15 times . For gawds sake unload before you put it in the bucket. Flip...
