  1. I don't care who you are, what gender, race or political persuasion...….what state you're from...…..whether your from the north, south, east or west....that's an absolutely amazing exposition of shooting. First and foremost, congratulations to Matt. PS Kudos to the armorer who keeps the firearms in tiptop condition. Hasta Luego, Keystone
  2. Making a SASS Match. Ingredients: Safety Regulations (needs plenty and don't skimp on quality of product) Fun ( carefully adjust quantity to taste) Target Size & Distance (requires careful consideration of consumers) Instructions: Carefully blend ingredients until smooth & lovingly hand mold in to shape.

Disclaimer: You can please some of the people some of the time, all of the people some of the time, some of the people all the time, but you can never please all of the people all of the time.

  4. Sorry for the passing of Claire and the loss of your home. Hope the transition to the next chapter of your life provides new & pleasing opportunities & experiences (blessings). Vaya con Dios, Keystone
  5. Well, I wonder if the condition of the primer pockets depends on the length of wet tumbling. I usually wet tumble about three hours for 45 colt brass. The seating of primers since beginning wet tumbling is very positive and I never a high primer on my 550. Prior to wet tumbling the feel when priming was inconsistent and primers were not set as deep in the pocket unless I occasionally cleaned the pockets manually to remove powder & primer residues. PS I reload with Trail Boss powder, 6.1gr & 200gr RNFP bullet with a good crimp.
  6. Congratulations & I share your feelings. In 2005 my father gave me his 1998 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 with about 10,000 miles. Alzheimer's had progressed to the point that he no longer drove. Still have it and am nearing 75,000 miles. A gift that keeps on giving. Especially on setup days at the range and slippery winter conditions.
  7. Well, I thought I was the only person having this issue. Never noticed the separation of the anvil & cup when depriming on 1st stage of the 550 Dillon and dry media tumbling. I now deprime with a universal decapper prior to wet tumbling. Have to hit some primers twice to dislodge the primer parts. The pin is rounded and have tried adjusting the pin depth without any positive result. I believe the primers are seated more firmly & to the bottom of the primer pockets without the usual debris from powder & primers.
  8. Garrison Joe, thanks for your post. I have a fair amount of blow-by in 45 Colt cartridges in my 73. I have stepped my load up and maintain a good crimp. I use Lee dies and have been told their resizing/de-prime die is overkill on sizing. Would a different manufactures die resize less? Is it really necessary to resize rifle brass when shooting cartridges in the same rifle? Hasta Luego, Keystone PS I tried a Marlin but couldn't adjust to it and was put off by the blow-by, in the face.
  9. Why would the SASS Marshal have to have a name other than Marshal. PS It's Marshal not Marshall.
  10. Barry Sloe, you are correct, my error.
  11. I have forgotten to reload my shotgun belt after shooting two stages (holds 10) and only had two shotshells for the third stage. Dang, what a knuckle head move. Only happened once, so far. PS Was using a new guncart with cartridges & shotshells in different pockets. Corrected the ammo placement with all ammo in same area.
  12. A cocked revolver may never leave a shooters hand, including from one hand to the other. This does not apply when loading or reloading on the firing line. SHB pg.15 at the very top of the page. Cocked revolver leaving a shooters hand is a SDQ. SHB pg. 42 RO Pocket Card.
  13. In 1974 I purchased a Ruger Red Hawk in 41mag that was a project pistol a friend worked on while attending a gunsmith school in Pittsburg, PA. Was living in York, PA at the time and was required by law to take pistol to a sporting goods store and leave it for three days.
