    Awww man! This is flipping me out. I can just see walking into one of our local dispensaries and asking to buy a matchbox. If the kid don't get it or never heard of it? Fine then, can I get a brick? Murphy

    I have a form and trim die. It’s stupid quick. If I use .308 I don’t bother neck turning but if it’s a 06 length case where the neck forms from the parent body I give it a quick turn. IMHO the form trim die was worth every penny

    You shouldn't need a gas check in a .45-70. Find a bullet that slips into a fired unsized case with slight resistance, that should be the right size. I used to shoot a 500 gr. bullet with excellent accuracy in mine

    I have this exact rifle (carbine?). It is a match for my Ruger American Compact in 223. I am undecided as to what scope to mount to it. My Leupold 1.5 - 5 (or 4?) VariX111 is looking good at this stage. Although I do have a VariX11 in 2-7 kicking...

    I would specify a MUZZLELOADER gunsmith. Many modern gun mechanics are not that familiar with them. You want someone who knows where to put the vent.
