    Winchester 25-20WIn

    This Black Powder, Hand Loading tool came with the 'Made in 1900' Marlin 1894 25-20Win Take-Down I bought a few years back.

    Great looking tool. And has the expander decap pin which is usually missing.

    "Joined Dates" are deceiving if you factor-in "lurk" dates.

    That's nice. You're actually using BP in the rifle? 86gr lead bullets? If so I gotta ask how the accuracy is with the BP. Thanks, LP

    I didn't know what I was getting into when i bought this rifle.
    I didn't know the chamber was toast. Accuracy was not good.
    After the fact, researching I read about original BP 25-20Win barrels being replaced back in the 70's. This barrel fit that description.

    After humming and hawing, I saved up some cash and had a new 22" barrel installed. H322 & Hornady #2510, 60gr FP shoot like a laser.

    AFAIK this rifle is on it's third barrel.
