    Carolina Gunslinger, I know most of what you're saying is tongue and cheek, but personally I think it was a good thing to put a stop to that post for safety reasons alone. We don't need folks throwing whatever ammo they happen to have into their guns. There's nothing to be offended by it was a question asked and answered. However the poster did not seem to get the concerns of shooting unsupported cartridges, that's basically what he was going after. There was a time I was considering 44 Russian in 44-40, just as someone pointed out on that post, guess what? It works, but the rule is the rule and I haven't proceeded past a few trail rounds and I will not go further with it. I didn't see it as ganging up on the guy, just stopping a bad idea before others got the same idea. As someone who runs the timer a lot I appreciate it being stopped, because it's the RO and the shooter who are most likely to suffer if something goes wrong. Tully

    Think of a Case Rupture kind of like this ,,,, You can take a hammer in hand a push against a window with quite a bit of force with-out breaking it ,,,,, But swing that hammer with half the force against the Window and the glass will shatter .... This is not a really good way of explaining it ,,,, but it does kind of get the idea across I hope ... A cartridge case is a Seal in the breach of a firearm that is meant to expand a very SMALL amount to make complete contact with the steel of the chamber and be fully supported by that Steel ,,, to stop gasses (pressure)from getting a Running start ...there-by directing those same gasses toward pushing against the base of the bullet to cause it to be moved down the bore ... I did Not Intend, nor do I feel I attacked said Cowboy,, My posts were in hopes of stopping the promotion of an unsafe practice and saving someone from harm ... Jabez Cowboy

    In a recently locked thread, the question was asked, what makes a chamber that has been cut to a dimension that doesn’t fit the ammunition used illegal? Aside from being dangerous, it is illegal because of this rule.

    We only have that poster's word that it was a 'gunsmith' who gave the go-ahead. The poster's 'tude after he ask'd if 'OK' and was told no. Tells all- OLG

    The safety of shooting the incorrect ammo out of the altered chamber was based on the assumption of shooting low pressure cowboy ammo. But what happens with a double charge? A double charge isn't good in any case and in an altered chamber would be even worse.

    Jabez, Its hard not to share education and experience when we think it might help others, whether it be in the performance of our guns, difficulties in certain mods, AND...especially safety issues and facts. I appreciate your post on various topics because they always seem to be 'neutral' towards personalities, yet helpful based solely on the topic being discussed. Here's hoping your computer never runs out of black ink..... ..........Widder

    Cool. I do have a few trident shirts as well as a few dill. why dill you ask? Dill is УКРОП, UKRainian OPposition (to separatist forces in the East. T’other night I saw a paramilitary door “guard” with something, shrouded barrel, banana clip, pistol grip. Asked for the password and objected to my guide’s language so we said Do svidanya.

    What fun! Springfield, May '43. DCM purchase '87 or '88. I'll never forget that day, home in bed with the flu, miserable as all get-out. Doorbell rings... a few minutes later the [now former] Missus Hardpan walks into the bedroom and drops a heavy carton next to me with the announcement, "It's M-One time!" Boy, did THAT ever make me feel better! (Just for fun - it's older brother - May '42, Remington built '03)

    Your rifle had been butchered by an imbecile. It’s dangerous, and not SASS legal. Wether you travel around or not or where you place on the score sheet has absolutely nothing to do with wether or not the rules apply to you. The fact that you are willing to subject others to injury to save a couple bucks is appalling.

    Very good to hear. Thank you for your input! Same. I did a lot of research before buying and didn't see much (if any) negative feedback so it caught me off guard. That is also why my initial inclination is that I just happened to get a bad apple. I completely agree. I understand that any product can fail and I appreciate companies who stand behind their products and try to make it right. So far it seems as though they are doing that. Will let everyone know how the situation pans out. No, I read that tightening the screw could address the problem but luckily I only live 15 mins from the service center (and it's been frigid here in St Louis lately so it wasn't going to see much use anyway) which is why I decided to drop it off and let them take care of it. The ammo was factory target loads. I believe the 38 was UMC and the 357 was FED

    Then those who shoot 44 Special out of a .44 mag chamber is illegal. Then there's the folks that shoot .45 CS out of a .45 Colt chamber....... The cases are the same, except for OAL. That is not the 'case'(pun intended)in the other post. OLG

    YOUR GUN RIGHTS ARE UNDER ATTACK ON CAPITOL HILL Nancy Pelosi is moving forward with freedom-killing, gun-control legislation RIGHT NOW. Congress is preparing to vote on H.R. 8 as early as next week. This is Barack Obama’s so-called “universal background check” bill on steroids. It will BAN private gun sales. It will make it a crime for you to even hand a gun to another person. It will pave the way for NATIONAL GUN REGISTRATION. And it will do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to stop crime. NOTHING. Not one damn thing. To defeat this bill, I need you to take two immediate actions: ACTION: Call your U.S. Representative at 202-224-3121 and tell them to defend your Second Amendment rights and VOTE NO on H.R. 8. Call today! And call again next week! Nancy Pelosi became Speaker of the House last month she vowed to make gun control a top priority. Now she’s making good on that promise and only you and I can stop her. Every NRA member needs to be in this fight. We can’t win without your help. Your leadership today is critical. Thank you!

    Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable. All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind. They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart. Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

    She is a Toy Minn Pinn. I’ve almost always had Labradors, but when my last one passed the wife got Darby. We’ve had her since she was 8 weeks old. She was born on Christmas Day 2009. Weighs all of 6 pounds and sleeps behind my knees every night. She’s a real joy.

    Some just don't think the rules apply to them. Some have no clue of what is 'rite' and safe. This was shown to be the case, to the entire forum by that one poster, in the thread........ OLG

    Hey Tom, what kind of dog is that? We adopted one not long ago that looks just like that. We figured she is just a mutt. JHC That first strip struck a chord. I've never really believed in ghosts and such, but since we lost our little Peanut, there have been MANY times when going to bed, I've felt like there was a dog jumping on the bed. I finally mentioned it to my wife, she's felt it too. But there's no dog there. JHC

    As to fire-forming Brass ,,, this is done WITH-OUT expanding the Base of the case expansion in this area is dangerous ,,, it allows the Primer pocket to expand and hot high pressure gasses to come back threw the firing pin hole and into the shooters face ... This hot gas often also carries pieces of primer , other metal pieces and may include the tip of the firing pin ... None of which is good for the shooters eyes or face ... If the case ruptures ,,,, more bad things can happen including a failure of barrel and action ring... also broken bolt parts coming out of loading and ejection port DO pose a risk to shooter and others.... I Have fire-formed 8 x 57 brass to form 9.3 x 57 brass this moves the shoulder a very slight amount and opens the neck up to take a .366 dimeter bullet instead of one measuring .323 ,,, this is best done with-out a bullet ... But since I purchased Hornady Dies it is no longer a issue I just size New 8x57 brass in my 9.3 x 57 dies .... I truly hope you will never sell that JW 92 to anyone ... Jabez Cowboy

    Costume requirements were really dress the part. Wranglers, a button down shirt, hat, and boots aren't enough. We will work on more details as we go along. Think "classic cowboy".

    Reaming it so it will accept a 44 spec has put the chamber out of spec for both cals. At CAS ammo pressure it probably will sort of work. But, guns out live owners and the next feller may push it too far.

    Chicago has a strong Ukrainian population. I have a friend here in town, another lawyer, (one of the few lawyers I count as a friend), who is of Ukrainian ancestry. His parents were Ukrainian immigrants, he was born in Chicago. Most people struggle to pronounce his name around here. At any rate, I recognized the name immediately as one he has posted on Facebook.
