    If your main purpose is just for plinking I would probably choose the 32 H&R magnum. Easy to get brass , strait walled so easy to load with carbide dies, brass lasts forever, cast bullets can range from super light to whatever length you can get...

    I have made a mold for jig heads and weight forward lures and they worked good for fishing lures. Boolit molds I have modified a few mostly by shortening the length by milling off some of the topside and re drilling and tapping for the sprue plate....

    Last year My wife and I moved and the house we bought had just a small opening in the soffit at the rear of the house. I was seeing starlings flying up and wiggling their way into the hole. I finally got a ladder out and started pulling the panels...

    That sounds like to much unique , if you are after a load that will give you the highest velocity with a 125 gr. bullet you need a slower powder than unique. Jedman

    YES !! That is very COOL ! I am sure I have a old 22 rifle or shotgun that needs some custom work like that. I will try my hand at the carving someday when I get a idea where to start at. Jedman

    Not that I no of. I do have a early Stevens tip up rifle I rebarreled to 38 special, and a no. 1 1/2 Remington rolling block in 38 spl. I did shoot a whitetail with the tip up with a good ethical kill. Jedman

    Most factory chambered handi rifles in 357 have a very generous chamber that many people have found will chamber the 360 Dan Wesson cartridge. 200 gr. Cast should be able to be loaded out way longer to a OAL at least .200 longer than sammi specs for...

    Your breechblock is from a early model that was chambered for the 50-70 or one of the shorter 50 cal. cartridges. Being the 30-40 case has a large rim it may be usable if welded up and cut or filed to fit the smaller case. Jedman
