    Oops, my bad Bob. Glad you caught that. I stated the manufacturer (Vortex) correct, but it is the Spark ll red dot. "Correction made" I have one of those on my 45 acp JRC. Works great. farmbif: Yes, there are pros and cons on the red dots and...

    So I decided to switch from mounting the Vortex Viper, to mounting a Vortex Spark ll. I had both lying around, so at least I didnt have to spring for more money and an optic. I went to a local department store with a sporting section, and bought a...

    I neck size my 45 Colt brass down to a bullets seating depth. There is one glitch I have to deal with though. My Winchester 94AE Trapper has an oversize chamber. When partial sized fired in the 94, the cases will not chamber in my Uberti SAA. I...

    Years ago, had a friend fire a factory round out of his 9mm. It sounded odd or different than the previous rounds fired. The empty case cleared the ejection port. He didn't realize something didn't sound right. He stood aiming and ready to finish...

    Seeing as you size down the boolit anyway, have you thought about seating a plain base gas check on them while you're sizing. I dont use that particular size, but maybe one of the members would be willing to send you a couple dozen to try out?

    For the nay-sayers, people won't think twice about using the longstanding 45 Colt cartridge at 900 fps to hunt deer, AND other game. But, some are quick to deny the ability of the 45 acp to do the same job. I've taken two deer with a S&W 57. A 220...

    I dropped by Sportsmans Warehouse today, early afternoon. They had delivered in this morning, their weekly supplies. Low and behold, there was one (1) brick of CCI 300 LP primers. Yes, I grabbed it. No price tag. I sondered up to the counter...

    NSB I've been considering putting a Viper optic on my Winchester 94AE Trapper. Is there a particular base that will use the factory mounting screw placement on the receiver?

    Just from my own expierience: You may think the case is still small enough to hold a bullet. This is just a very small amount of crimp left after firing a crimped straight wall round. So, when you have resistance sliding a bullet in the case, it is...

    littlejack replied to a thread Lumpy Lead bullets in Cast Boolits
    Gazz You might try casting a few from that same bottom pour pot, using your dipper from the top. If they come out ok, then your lead is at least up to temp. I used to cast with a bottom pour pot, and yes, they can get plugged up. When this...

    I had always wanted one of the Double - Nines since I was a young teenager. I never did really go on a search for one, as other things seemed to take up my time. One day in about 2013 I was driving by a local pawn shop. I stopped in, with no...

    I went to the gun club Tuesday, and they had quite a few bricks of Federal 150's and 155's. Price was 97.50 per K. It was good to see that things are beginning to trickle in, but I couldn't bring myself to spring for that amount. But, I guess that...

    Murf205 Good on you sir. I find my memory getting shorter these past few years. I find I have to deliberately do something at the time I think of it. Otherwise, theres a good chance I may forget what it was. Glad to hear you didnt get hurt.

    farmerjim: I think what you meant to say about the burning rate of Unique powder vs Herco, is that the "Herco" powder is a little bit slower than the Unique. Spoon You stated in your post that, In the past you have seen where Herco has been...

    I used/use HP-38 for loading 200 grain rfn in my Uberti 45 Colt for plinking. It does the job well. Seems to burn purty clean, and ejects the projectile out the muzzle.:guntootsmiley: it would not be my first choice for the heavier 255 slugs. I use...
