    Sorry for the delay reporting on this new to me rifle. The missus and I lost about three weeks, maybe a bit more, because of Covid. Feeling better and have been going back to my part-time job at Ace Harware. The .358 Wincheter Remington 660...

    That sounds interesting. I have both a 10 lb and a 20 lb Lee bottom pour. I have been using a piece of lumber for a mould guide for the smaller one. It's pretty iffy but it has worked so far. I would like to do something better. The adjustable...

    I would think Carnauba Red lube would be too hard for the .44-40 loads. The lube manufacturer says it is designed for high velocities - over about 2,000 fps. I doubt you will generate that speed with a sane load on the .44-40. Also, because it is...

    Jim22 replied to a thread Henry 30-30 opinions in Leverguns
    The Henry Single shot rifle is another gun that can use some trigger stoning. I have read about people changing out the hammer spring to a lighter one. Even saw someone publish the Grainger part number. But I don't much like weakening the hammer...

    Barrel arrived today from JES. Haven't unpacked it yet. Just got home from work. Brass showed up yesterday from Starline. I have a few days off so will see what I can learn and make a report. If it is as good as everyone says it will be I will...

    I discovered something yesterday. I had loaded a box of .357 Magnum with the Lee 158 plain base powder coated over 15.0 grains VV N110. That is a compressed load and crimping caused the case mouth to expand about 0.001 more than the Marlin would...

    I bought some of those un divided boxes from Midway as well. As you say they quit carring the for a while. I looked a couple months ago and they weree back in a different color so I stocked up. Might want to look back once in a while. Jim

    Haven't seen the rifle back yet from Jess. In the mean time my loading dies are here and I found some brass at Starling. On its way. I once had a .358 Win. in a 99 Savage so have a bit of old data and three boxes of loads based upon LS brass. A...

    A good choice PB. I have been thinking lately about the beyond. My wife is 80 years old - older than I. Two weeks ago we had a small family gathering to celebrate a birthday. Maybe six people. The granddaughter was there and shared her Covid...

    I have one. It is the 700 SPS. 20" barrel and 1:12 twist. I use 168 grain match bullets in it. I have tried Lapua brass and match bullets from Everglades Bullets. They are not polished...

    Yes I know. I once owned a Savage 99 in .358 Win. Bought it used and could never get smaller than 3-4" groups from it. Got rid if it but have not lost the ,358 Win bug. I found a set of loading dies on Midway and they are now here. Was looking...

    Hmmm... I thought that 10 bore was the largest cartridge shotgun that is legal. ImIwrong? Or are these muzzle loaders? A hammerless muzzle loader is a curious beast. Jim

    Jim22 replied to a thread Marlin “Jam” in Leverguns
    I had the same problem with my 1894C. The boolit would catch on the sharp edge on the right that was put there for the extractor to catch the cartridge rim. I tried several things which didn't work. I finally sent the rifle to Grizzly guns in...

    I dunno about deer. I have only processed a couple of them since I lived in interior Alaska and there are no deer there. For deer you need to go to southeast or part of the Kodiak archepelago. I have mostly killed moose and caribou. Alaska moose...

    Use a hacksaw frame with a section of meatsaw blade installed. I first got on to this through a hardware store in Alaska. They had meatsaw blades by the foot and a punch to make holes so the blade would work on a hacksaw frame. Of course you...
