    CVA is still a 360 BuckHammer mystery but I just got an email reply from Magnum Research and they said that caliber was definitely on their list of chamberings they were considering. They said check back in 4-6 months. Update: Magnum Research...

    So it is the 35-30 with legitimate parenting. Every brass scrounger worth their salt has a stash of 30-30 brass. Sounds like fun especially with cast boolits in a single shot. C'mon CVA, its your move!

    I owned several Ruger Black Hawks but my son bought a 44 Bisley and had the late Jon Gallagher work his magic on it. The Bisley frame is an absolute joy to shoot IMHO. If you can, I would try to find one to try before you decide.

    It might be a blessing that I can't find one since I have started looking for 35 Rem brass. Buying a 243 and having JES turn it into a 358 Win is another alternative. Does the 360 have a rim similar to a 30-30?

    Just a FYI, I just got off the phone with the CVA USA office in GA and they told me that they did not make a Scout in 35 Rem. I believe that all of you who said you have one, do indeed have one, but the guy I talked to said he had worked there 7 yrs...

    I'm not saying that they don't but I just looked again(and again) in their catalogue and web page and if they do make one, they're not showing it in those 2 places that I searched, or let me say that I can't find it. I see the 350 Legend and 35...

    murf205 replied to a thread New Marlins from Ruger in Leverguns
    In either Handloader or Rifle magazine, Brian Pearce stated that the new guns were to have the tighter twist rate of 1-20", according to his conversations with Ruglin. Randy, did anybody you talked with divulge the twist of the new 44 mag 1894's?

    HA! you think you've got problems, I was left out on both accounts! I wish CVA would make a 35 Rem in the Scout but I know that it aint gonna' happen. I have thought about a 35 Whelen instead that could be loaded down to 35 Rem levels to accommodate...

    Iwsbull, my son has a Ruger American in 450 BM and I have some 290 gr 45 boolits powder coated that his rifle just will NOT shoot worth a hoot. IIRC, they are sized to .452 and you are welcome to a handful to try if you decide to buy that gun. From...

    It's not just handgun chamberings. It has not been long ago that a 336 in 30-30 or 35 Rem was a $250-$350 gun and they didn't sell very well at those prices. Now they sell in the $650-$700 range and everybody wants one. If it is a '94 in 44 mag or...

    I'll have to let the Ruger guys answer that one. From what I have read, the cylinder throat issues have been resolved but I have not bought a new Ruger revolver in a long time so anything I would say would not be gleaned from actual experience.

    Loosely looking around to adding a 44 to my collection. I typically prefer ruger revolvers so I have been looking at a new model super blackhawk in stainless. I've shot a 7.5" version before and liked it. I definitely prefer revolvers with at least...

    Does anybody know how 44man is. I might be a glutton for punishment but I miss the guy. He was very experienced. As far as powder goes, isn't Shooters World Buffalo Rifle a dead nuts replacement for 5744? If you can find it!

    If it is a range toy and you like the 10 1/2" bbl, go for it. I have a 9 1/2" SRH and I will tell you that with the longer barrels you get a lot of speed with what is considered moderate loads. For instance my favorite load of 16.6 grs of 2400 under...

    My RCBS bench priming tool is over 50 yrs old and never had an issue. Just fill the tubes and go to it. I would not be without it.

    TXTad, I see that you said you were thinking about a mold with 2 PB and 2GC cavities. I believe you also said that most of your boolits will be for 44 spl Skeeter Skelton loads. If that is the case, the plain base boolits will serve your purpose and...

    I don't have any of the old 2400 to retest with but from what I took from your test was the fact that I didn't record the temperature of either test I ran. My mistake. I dawned on me while reading the test results that this could have easily...

    +1 for Accurate molds. If you order a mold with some of your own specifications, Tom will make it just that way. Exactly that way. Larry, are you using newly manufactured 2400? I finally used up my batch of 1970's and '80's 2400 and bought a new...

    I am a fan of Accurate and NOE molds but with that said, my 2 cavity Lyman 429421 I bought in 1974 has made a zillion boolits and proved accurate since day 1. I don't know if there is a difference between the older ones and the recent production...

    Jeremy, you might want to grocery shop with cast boolits. I firmly subscribe to the theory that fat meplats and a cast boolit kill better than jacketed. PLUS, if the intended game decides to take a hike after being hit, the cast almost always exits...
