    I've got this one, AND period correct powder to use in it. It has a sort of micrometer adjustment mechanism on it. I suppose maybe 1950's?? jd

    I came BACK to the Lord in my sixties. The "unclean lips" thing is a constant battle, but I am also appalled at some of the other deeply ingrained sinful thought and action patterns which have become habitual over the years. A hardened heart is...

    I think that for a lot of us, the forums provide a way to enjoy our love of firearms vicariously through the experiences of one another. I can literally go a mile up the road and shoot -- anything. From high-powered rifles, shotgun, pistol. Hunt...

    And as far as loading pics, it doesn't seem too hard, and I'm a technotard. It's done a little different on almost every forum, and everybody seems to use a little different technique. I say keep on trying, because pics just make things more...

    I started this thread sixty some posts back. I was kinda troubled about all the dying forums, but I guess this ain't one of them. That's a good thing. I'll repeat that there seems to be a great bunch of folks here and they seem to give and get...

    You said the brass is all WW, but do you know the history of them? Did you purchase them new or as ammo? 25-20 is a case that is notorious as being reformed from Bee or 32-20. Is it possible that someone turned the necks at some time? I've got...

    I love this forum for the great civility that is generally shown by most all members. AND the incredibly wide range of topics -- on any given day you can find a conversation ranging from the love of Jesus, all the way to your favorite coon recipe. ...

    I'm a member of probably six on-line gun forums. Most of my activity is primarily here and one other. When I've popped into most of the others lately, it seems as if they've pretty much -- died. I'm just wondering if anyone else has noticed...

    Some of those old "store brand" rifles were pretty nice guns. Seems I recall Ted Williams stuff being sold at JC Penneys. Might be a Mossberg or ???

    I've got them all, although not all are the newest. Use the on-line ones also. I've got ancient ones also, and the ancient powder to go with them. These days, with component availability the way it is, you'd better have several different ones. jd
