    A 336 CB in .38-55 would be nice, maybe in a few years Davidson's will offer some nice variations like in the past.

    I bought a project No 4 last year and found out parts are not in everybody's junk boxes anymore. Found one at Liberty Tree Collectors, it hurt for a bit, but sometimes you just have to bite the bullet.

    I have had that problem with a Lyman 450, and a 4500, both were bought used and apparently worn out. They have noticeable slop in the ram. Have never noticed any wear like that in my old 45's. Does your 45 have any binding issues, I suppose the...

    Remember to not drive out the magazine tube ring, put a dowel in it and give it a quarter turn. That little plate covering the action bar, slides out foreward, it has a slight dove tail. And the little screws on top of the breech block like to...

    Is there a little flat spring like guide on top of the chamber, that keeps the cartridges from stovepiping? Mine was missing something, and some times didn't feed well. I just used it in the pighouse with rat shot. It dissapeared, I must have...

    No 9 is a Winchester 9422, made from the early 70's to mid 2000's, and in my opinion the best .22 lever ever made. And yes I have a Marlin and a Browning, very good, but not a Win 9422. Rifle # 10 is an older Win 94 carbine. Lot's of eye candy...

    I salvaged some flake powder from some Turk 1944 8x57, and thought it was rumored to be close to 3031. After using it in a .250 Savage, I felt it built pressure quickly, and decided to only use it for .30 cal and 8mm. I think Larry Gibson...

    Learned of reloading by reading about it in old gun books and magazines. I bought a Lee Loader, a pound of 2400 powder, and Hornady 100 gr short jacket bullets and started loading, using Lee's instructions. It was for my first centerfire rifle, a...
