    A CZ 527 in 223 would pretty much hit all the op's points: manual operation, SR primed, factory ammo readily available, amply accurate for 200 yard shots. While there are other choices out there--the Ruger American is cheap and pretty nice, for...

    For many years, I wandered in darkness. Immersed in the notion that bigger was better and only if it started in a "4" could there be worth in any handgun, I wandered afar. My 38's were left abandoned, no 9 MM need apply, and the thought of a .32...

    I have used the 3.5 grain, 231 load listed for my Browning 53 with both the 311-316 and the NOE clone of the RCBS 32-98 SWC with complete satisfaction. I wish I had bought a clone of the 311-316 that was PB, as the gas checks are a pain in the neck...

    Excuse as I push my way back into the crowd to avoid the stampede. I suspect the 2 dozen guys who buy these will extoll the virtues to the mountain tops and those piddling pikers who cling to their 29's and 629's will be derided and shunned.

    In line with what Don said, you can adjust a fixed sighted revolver to shoot to point of aim. But it will be restricted to that one load. Other loadings and bullets (or boolits) will very likely not shoot to the same point of aim. And some will...

    ^^^^+1. If I didn't reload, my 32's would be just about dead except for the 32 ACP's. I did pick up a couple of boxes for them last year. But otherwise, nada. I have seen more 30 Super Carry than 32 ammo--6 boxes.:roll:

    At 7:34 PM, tonight, my phone rang. It was a Kensights customer service rep calling me concerning an e-mail I had sent them in my quest for a replacement front sight to correct the sight regulation problem I am having with my otherwise very...

    Well there's a lot of people who want 12 gauge slugs. The 9 guys who are reloading 30SC have the market to themselves.

    I have a Kahr K-9 that is factory equipped with Truglo Tritium sights. Mine are marked "TG-H3," and they shoot about 9-10 inches low at 25 yards with 115 -124 grain standard 9mm ammunition. (Only 8 inches low with 147 grain Winchesters,...

    That exact mold was one of two Lee molds that I have had that gave me grief. Like you, I had a devil of a time getting them to drop from two cavities, and the problem was that I was letting the mold cool while I struggled with those two...

    I have had pretty good luck with a 200 grain (actually about 210 grain) MP mold (IIRC, the 432-423) and 4.5 grains of Red Dot. I have a Ruger GP 100 and find the heavier Skeeter level loads a little objectionable when all I am doing is killing...

    I've never used KKM, but years ago, I bought a Bar Sto barrel for an old Browning HP I had then and it cured my problem with hollow-points hanging up on the goofy little bump in the feed ramp on the stock barrel. Others have used them in 1911...

    If you have one, a shell holder for 35 Remington will work. I used one from Lyman, IIRC, back in the 70's when loading up some with RCBS dies. +1 on the 20 grain load.

    rintinglen replied to a thread Weight variation in Cast Boolits
    Megasupermagnum pretty much covered the spectrum of user-caused variance. But there is also equipment caused variation. Back in the day it was not uncommon for different cavities in a multi cavity mold to vary by a grain or even two. Users were...

    This malarkey keeps floating around, but it is not fact. In truth, it is more like the way the powers that be in the Armed forces of this country cling to the 5.56, despite numerous and repeated calls for a more powerful weapon/cartridge. The...

    The 7 1/2 inch version is more to my taste. The longer one's don't balance well for me, but if you are solely shooting from a rest, then the longer barreled guns may be a touch more accurate.

    Not quite. There are millions of hunters who can not use the 38-55 due to the "straight wall"* limitation put on cartridges by well meaning but ignorant legislatures. This cartridge and it's similar siblings, the 350 Legend and the older 357...

    My brother and I each bought a part of them last year and were able to fit them up with replacement 2 inch barrels. "Pugly," as I have named the first one, has proven to be an excellent revolver, amply accurate for use out to 50 yards and even more...

    The best mold that I have found is the Accurate 35-220B, it groups much better than the 187 grain Lyman in my 1951 Winchester. I also have the RCBS 348-200 which is not quite as accurate as the 35-220 (but still better than the Lyman bullet:wink:.)...

    Absolutely! My 429-421 boolits will out shoot those of my 429-360 every day of the week for exactly that reason. A .430 Front band versus a ~.428 front band, guess which one fits my Ruger's throats better?
