  1. Nope they were used by real Cowboys, and sometimes to shoot baddies at 3 yards and mostly at under 20 yards ... And also to put critters down including Wolves , Cougars and Bears even those with bad tempers .... And on occasion to shoot your own horse , being dragged to death being no fun ask to see so of my experience Marks .... I too question why anyone's choice to use loads that Very closely match pre. 1900 loads would be called into question by anyone shooting this Cowboy Game ... But this is just My take on things as a third generation Cowboy .... And by the way Phantom when are ya headed up here to shoot ??? Jabez Cowboy

  11. I kinda like the Self propelled Version , they carry their own Rifles and Cartridges and Can clean-up after themselves just toss the body in the Duce and a Half ,,, and Mount-up ....And Bullets is still cheap when bought in bulk .... Jabez Cowboy
  12. I derive a portion of my income from Ballistic testing various Loads in Many calibers from .204 Ruger -to .460 Weatherby... Like many in the 1970s I had a bunch of RCBS Dies, mostly because they were Available in every gun shop up here in Western Canada.... They were decent dies for the Times ... But it seemed that RCBS was Happy to retain those standards while other manufactures were working hard to improve theirs , the first time I noticed this was In setting-up some Lyman Dies in .270 Winchester for a friend in 1973 . I noticed that the bullets seated straighter than my RCBS dies , make a long story short to equal the amount of bullet run-out his Lyman dies produced just seating bullets normally ... I had to seat a bullet about 70% turn the case 180 degrees and seat it the rest of the way ... Not to put to Fine a point on things my above post states my die choices , one of my remaining RCBS sets is in .38 Spl./ .357 Mag and is a carbide set and is ok . I do not use .38 Spl. much and .357 Mag even less , and accuracy is not of great concern , so they stay around for use... I must say I was Favorably impressed with my 2017 made RCBS Cowboy Dies in .38-40 ,,,, I just couldn't get a set of Hornady New Dimention Dies in .38-40 ... Truth be told I got Impatient and bought the Cowboy Dies, because the Kid in me wouldn't Wait ... They are nicely made and will see much use ... I put Hornady and Redding as the very best in die sets, baring Custom made usually Bench Rest dies ... Redding cost a bunch more than Hornady hence I have more of the Red Brand ... Jabez Cowboy
