  1. Strat-O - Sheen, Kramer 3mm ceramic triangle media and a 2 second squirt of Dawn
  2. 1965 Classic …. 27
  3. 38-55 lever bullet mold … https://www.accuratemolds.com/bullet_detail.php?bullet=38-250F.
  4. I loaded 50 rounds with Ideal 375166 and 42 gr of FFg powder and took them to the Ridgway high range, a couple of years ago… * shot the 50 rounds consecutively from 500 meters back to 200 meters, with minor verniers changes on the steel with accuracy, a few misses too,…. and no blow tubing or patching for the 50 rounds * when finished shooting the 50, with 3 cotton balls dipped in plain water and one dry cotton ball … the bore was absolutely clean …. 48 degrees and 60% humidity
  5. The Ideal 375166 bullet is the most accurate bullet to 500 meters Clone on Accurate Molds …. https://www.accuratemolds.com/bullet_detail.php?bullet=38-320E Tom cloned it at my request from an original Ideal 375-166 mold I have because the Ideal mold is scarcer than hens teeth. Note that this 38-55 Accurate mold has been purchased 18 time
  6. A good reason … Why! https://www.levergunscommunity.org/viewtopic.php?t=45871
  7. Ed, Thanks. Shows that not owning a 73 rifle shows I don’t have the parts knowledge in memory. This be …guess operator issue
  8. I’m betting it’s either operator error or the cartridge stop is releasing an early round into the action
  9. * Clean the magazine tube * Put 5 rounds in the magazine * Give the rifle to an experienced shooter and fire the 5 rounds * Come back to Wire and tell us EXACTLY what happened when the experienced shooter shot the 5 rounds ……
  10. 28.000 CUP …. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/.25-20_Winchester
  11. I remember the first day that El Diablo sat down at the table to shoot a Buffalo steel at 300 yds with my Pedersoli 45-90 with black powder … including coaching. It’s nice to say that the student progressed to shoot better than the mentor El Diablo progressed quickly to be the New Jersey Mid Range Champion
  12. When the Chronicle was 100% paper, one could determine the number of members because Postal Notice had to beposted in the magazine with the number of magazines mailed. Now it is a combo of paper and Internet which doesn’t have to be counted in the Notice
  13. Father Kit, having MANY Single Shots in several safes, if I knew back when what I have now, I would have stopped and spent the money only for a CPA 44 1/2 all the calibers and configurations, plus Unertl scopes that I have. With my CPA I can shoot any distance out to 1000 plus or sport (Bench, silloutte or Schuetzen) by just changing the barrel caliber and extractor Mine: * Silloutte and Schuetzen forearms & stocks, plus palm rest * Barrels … 32-40, 25-21, 38-55, 45-60 and 45-70 * One Baldwin vernier LR with interchange bases … each with globe bubble foresight Scopes … With different magnifications, either Unertl’s or Feckers ""……………. Now, the suggestion for your CPA…. Silloutte woods, Baldwin LR vernier with 2 bases & 1 staff and Douglas barrels in 38-55 and 45-70 Cost … See website for prices with the configuration you want https://www.cparifles.com/
  14. Lapdog, a very simple procedure and you must own a caliper … *. Put a reload in the magazine, and keep trying to chamber them with measurements until the nose of of the round clears the top of the chamber and doesn’t hang up on the chamber ramp. * load 6 dummies and rack them quickly into the chamber. If no hang ups, write theCOL number down and adjust your seating die to that number Any round proper COL is dependent on the length of the bullet and depth it is seated in th case
  15. SASS is the only sport that calls shooting at 300 yd targets, Long Range … It’s really one of the shooting distances for Mid Range Matchs which are … 200, 300 and 600. Any match over 600 to 1000 is Long Range
  16. Lee Shaver is the gunsmith repair/services for Pedersoli, plus Lee is a par excellent gunsmith
  17. 681 shooters. .. is this an EOT record
  18. Bag Balm finger wipe for reforming and resizing… 15 yr experience with it and can’t remember having to pound the case out of the die
  19. On many of my single shots, there are Pedersoli verniers. Maybe lucky or what ever, have MOA groups out to 300 yards, many shots at 200 to 500m steel and holes/lead splashes on 1000yd targets in the 9-10 rings plus centers with both Pedersoli windage & Soule verniers
  20. From Cimarron, a tempting quality Pedersoli purchase package after a review of the long range Soule vernier compared to the MVA Soule vernier Available base spacings not mentioned, Sharps, HiWall, Stevens https://www.cimarron-firearms.com/pedersoli-rifle-sights-soule-style-long-range-set-in-case.html
  21. Need a new cartridge stop …
  22. Only set with issues, not even horsing to unscrew a bolt or screw was the Lyman… complete set went in recycling If one considers the smaller the bit, the less torque is needed to bend the tip, they will last a long time
  23. Bull, I measure based on weight and based on your post …. I should have been carried out of the reloading room in a basket And in the reverse case it could leave an air space and cause detonation and injury. That is why you never go by weight because lot to lot variation in density is common
