  1. Griff: I'm Hurt ,,,, We met I believe at WR in 2016 ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, I was the Hansom one with TR ,,,, Taller Too ... And I will bet after the first few Rounds go down-range you are smart enough to step back a might ... Jabez Cowboy
  2. If you are standing behind my Right Shoulder you are often NOT in a good position to see anything ,,,,,,, SMOKE ,,,, you need to back off a step or two and bob and move like I am to see anything .... And even at that I believe properly placed spotters that are paying attention have at least as good a chance of making the call as TO ... You do not need the timer up in my face to pick-up my shots !!! I have long ago lost count of the times the timer has bumped me or come into my line of sight .... This is distracting, and is NOT needed ... On a quiet Range the timer will pick-up the sound of my Rifle from 80 yards away .... I have on more than a few stages had to fire my last shots from my knees to see through the Smoke .... My .45 Colt loads contain 37.7 gr. of Goex 3f ,,, and Shotshells are stoked with more of the same ... Jabez Cowboy

  11. Ah don't stay full of beans fer Long ,,,, they Pass threw Fast ... But they's a good source of Naturel Gas .... Jabez Cowboy
  12. Poorly Made Dies cause 98% of all Chambering problems that I see in my shop on Arms chambered in .38 WCF ( .38-40 ) this holds true in all action types ,,, Slides , levers and single shots of all types .... And Revolvers .... Every single one has chambered and 98% functioned great with My Personal loads in new Star-Line Brass... A couple of guns had too tight Chamber necks to use Star-line brass in ,,, but loading Winchester Brass with my dies and bullets solved the problem ... Jabez Cowboy
  13. What is We doing on Page 3 ??? Are we Slipping ??? Or just needing something to recharge the Grump Battries ..... Where is all da Redheads ??? Plenty of Coffee ,,, but the Shortbread Cookies is Bout gone ... Who's coming West to Shoot this Year??? Jabez Cowboy

Told some things about me that many of my recent ( last 20 Years ) friends didn't Know ,,, There were some really nice things said some that were even True ... We had a great time , Great Food good friends and A loving Family .... John a longtime friend, he was 76 at the time got to go to my Funeral and a few years latter I attended His ... My wife said that she was happy I didn't Die before my Planned Death ,,,,"As it might Look Bad".... While John and some other Good Pards have now gone Over ,,,, They can say they were at my Funeral too ... Good Friends may die ,,,,, but they are never really Gone .... Jabez Cowboy
  15. Trail Boss: 5 grains under a 240 gr. bullet ... Or a full case load of Goex .... Lightly Commpressed... Jabez Cowboy
  16. Welcome to you and Your's.... Get out and meet Folks ,,,, Some bite ,,, but most don't If you buy .38 spl. caliber Guns do it because you want to ,,,, Not because it's "What Everyone Shoots "and it's cheaper.... But if you see your self shooting BIG Bore guns ,,,, that's what to buy .... Buying .38s because it's the thing to do, when you are wanting to be the leader of your own Pack and not a follower in the main pack is expensive .... Jabez Cowboy
  17. Imis; I noticed you are into Model Railroading ,,, My Brother-in-Law is really into that as well .... Me I just drove them on down da Rail for CPR for 8 years .... Anyho that was a spell ago 1980- 1988.... Coffee fer da Grumps an Shortbread Cookies ... Jabez Cowboy
  18. Sorry Pard , but SAMMI has had Specs. for this cartridge ( .38 WCF ) since 1980 with the latest revision in 2005.... And the .40-65 is under Review at this time ... Lyman has very good drawings of the Specs. for .40-65 in their Handbook , these match very closely the specs. in the old "Ideal" manual... And Hornady (.40-65 ) New Diamention Dies, size cases to these specs... Jabez Cowboy
  19. Roping Yearling Bulls as an Eight year old, can be a real Drag .... Jabez Cowboy
  20. Demon Juice,,, Demon Hauler,,, Jug-u-Lar ,,, Dead SKunk ,,, Arm -A- dillo .... Jabez Cowboy
  21. Got one in .45 Colt ,,,, Will ring Match steel Shot for Shot ..... Will often place both shots with-in an inch at 12 yards ... Dead center on the plate ... Jabez Cowboy
  22. I find that brass in .38 WCF. is on the Short side of Spec. as it comes from the factory .... So that is unlikely to be the problem ... I found the "Lee" dies started the shoulder to close to the base and with the wrong shoulder angle carried the shoulder to far from the base, creating and case the would not chamber because the Front of the neck was stopping it .... But with a shoulder that at the start needed to be blown forward .... The "Lee" .40-65 dies were cut with a straight Taper from Base to Mouth ... Not as it should have been ,,, the case is designed as tapered from the Base forward for 1.5 inches to a neck .6 inches long ..... So while the diameter was right at the case mouth, the start of the neck was too big to chamber .... Both die sets I suggested in my above post are superb ,,, In .38WCF. I can size new cases with-out lube ,,, and only lube every 20th. case while loading fired brass... I shoot these in both my Uberti 66 and Low-wall .... My high-wall is Chambered in .40-65 and is my go to gun when I need to reach out and Hit something HARD .... Jabez Cowboy
  23. A Highwall in .38-40 ? The .38 WCF was usually chambered in the Lowwall .... I have found that the Lee dies in both .38-40 and .40-65 don't size the cases to proper diamentions , I sent them back and bought RCBS Cowboy Dies in .38-40 and Hornady Dies in .40-65 , end of problems .... Jabez Cowboy
  24. Different Grips than my Open-tops Mine are Navy Gripped in .44 Spl. My 66 Short Rifle is in .45 Colt and my 66 Sporting Rifle is In .38-40 ( .38 WCF )... Where is your Hammered Double ??? Mine range in Age from made in 1884 to Made in 2017.... The New Short tubed one is Made in Turkey,,,,, Not to be confused with the Turkey's YA meet on the Road .... Coffee And Shortbread Cookies fer all .... Now Git Offten Da Lawn !!! Jabez Cowboy
