    358429 All in fun. I seldom bother with cleaning them. If I shoot a lot of 38spl in my GP-100/686 I just drop in a few hot .357 rounds and that pretty much cleans up any concerns. Besides those cylinder faces are only clean until the next 6 rds...

    I did come across a .50 cal. wheel lock yesterday a friend has. Pretty tempting price for a rifle, I may have to take advantage of it.

    waksupi replied to a thread Is water the new oil in Our Town
    The oceans need the fresh water to maintain a certain salinity level. Salt content gets too high, everything in the ocean dies. California could solve a lot of their problems by shutting down car washes and lawn watering.

    Bigslug thanks for your post. Alliant powders in this part of Canada are rarer than hens teeth. That probably accounts for my drift away from same and into the mid range burn rates for pistol applications. For example I LOVE Clays for my 38spl...

    Not all European 9MM's. CZ, Tanfoglio. newer FN's and Walther are not oversized. I think you will find the over sized pistols in pre-WW11 pistols. Even the Norinco pistols from China in 9MM are not oversized as you suggest. Your experiences may...

    Bigslug you might try 231 or Unique in your 9MM. I have found the slightly slower powders work a bit better than Bullseye. I agree with your assessment of using .357 sized lead bullets. I have had excellent results in all my 9MM pistols sizing my...

    I am in need of a set of 410 dies for my P-W press. I can buy outright or will trade either 28 ga. or 20 ga. dies for the P-W press.

    Sure but sometimes bullets don't go where they are supposed to go and that is when the extra umph of the .357Mag might come in handy. The 5' tall Cree lady downed her Grizzly with one shot from her .22lr but I would not carry a .22lr to protect...

    There is a guy who posts on Facebook, on the black powder pages. He makes some very nice wheel locks. "Cheap" for a quality lock is something you should never look for.
